If you have typed in Tessa Thompson’s name on Twitter than you may notice a slew of pictures of her and goats. Yep you read that right.
Apparently, Thompson has a serious obssession with the fury animals and now, so do her fans. We got the scoop from Tessa while at the New York premiere for her film “Sorry To Bother You” about how and when the love affair all began.
“I just really like them, I think that they are really fun loving, and beautifully lovely creatures,” she explained.
“Someone on the internet realized that I liked them, I might have said something in passing and that I wanted to have a pet goat and now people find pictures of goats and put the side by side dressed like me.”
Always the fashionista Tessa was dressed in a white two piece skirt suit with a matching tie. “When I was leaving one of my friends said I can’t wait to see the goat version of this outfit. I agree because I really want to see a goat in a tie,” she joked.
In the film, Thompson plays Detroit, an eclectic artist who inspires who boyfriend (LaKeith Stanfield) to stay woke in the Boots Riley directed flick also starring Omari Hardwick, Armie Hammer, Terry Crews and Jermaine Fowler.
