I had a date with Lisa … at McDowell’s! No, I’m not making this up. Coming to America star Shari Headley stopped by the McDowell’s pop-up restaurant in Hollywood (which is usually the eatery Fat Sal’s) and gave us a quick interview.

Headley, who played Hakeem’s (Eddie Murphy) love interest in the hilarious ’80s film, still looked stunning while we chatted about her thoughts on the upcoming sequel to the decades old comedy. You may be surprised that, while she’s excited for the film, she doesn’t even know if she’ll be in it!

This past week Gina has been very vocal via social media about gun legislation and the idea behind policy and change following the tragic high school massacre an Parkland, Florida.
Annihilation, also starring Oscar Isaac, hits theaters on February 23.
