It was a star-studded event on Monday night as stars made their way down the black carpet at the LA premiere of, Tyler Perry’s The Single Moms Club.
Nia Long, the star of the film, arrived in a stunning black gown with a deep plunging neckline. The star appeared to be on cloud nine as she posed in the sexy ensemble which showed off her tone legs.
In a refreshing twist during the carpet, stars gave authentic praise to hardworking single moms. And for some of them, that meant giving themselves a pat on the back.
“I only have one son, he is 22-months old, but I got to play a mom to five kids and that was insane,” CoCoa Brown told HipHollywood. “I have friends who are single moms to like four kids and I had to call all of them and say ‘girl, I am so sorry if I ever said I couldn’t babysit. That is some serious work you’re putting in.’ I think single moms should be applauded.”
The comedy, which also stars Tyler Perry, Nia Long, Amy Smart, Wendy McLendon-Covey and Zulay Henao is about a group of single mothers who create a support group to help them with the crazy things life throws their way. For Henao, she might not know what it means to be a single mother, but she knows what it’s like to grow up in a single-parent household.
“I come from a broken family. My parents were divorced when I was 14-years-old and I can say my mother, I thought she was super woman,” Zulay said. “This movie is so relevant because the divorce rate is so high and because there are so many single parents, not just single moms. This is a very important subject matter and I am glad to be part of it.”
HH also caught up with actress, Jenifer Lewis, who attended the premiere to simply support who friends. As one of Hollywood’s favorite TV moms, and a single mother herself, the actress made sure to give credit where credit is due.
“I don’t know that any of us our single, even if we are single because we have such great support groups,” she explained. “A group of girlfriends, that’s what it’s all about. We come together and we raise our children … I am a single mom.”
The Single Moms Club hits theaters Friday, March 14.
Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves
To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.
But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.
“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”
In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.
When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”
Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”
Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
