    Mind ya business, fools. It’s her damn head. She can style it any way she likes. Besides, braids are not a black-exclusive form of hairstyle. Middle Eastern men and women have been braiding their hair since the ancient nations of Assyria, Babylon, Egypt, Persia, etc. So, let’s please stop trying to claim black exclusivity on this or that. That’s just ignorant.

        Peoples minds are becoming so ingrained with divisiveness’ and anger that it cost seems like races are grasping for everything to claim as their own. “If you dress like a skateboarder, you must be trying to be white or if you have braids then you must be trying to act black.” It’s really ignorant.

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.
