Recently chatting with our friends at HelloBeautiful, the 47-year-old beauty weighed in on her sex symbol status and the status of fellow black leading ladies. When the topic of the ‘Single Ladies’ singer arose, the actress saw a few eyebrows raised with her response.
Lifting her name to the top of the Beyhive’s hitlist, tell us: are people overreacting? Weigh in…
Via Hello Beautiful:
For me, you’re obviously flattered when someone calls you sexy or thinks you’re sexy. I think that’s great. But, for me now, there’s so many ways to be sexy without being overt about it. I think you can wear a great short dress, but if you have long sleeves and you’re only showing leg. I think you have to stick to a body part and show that. I don’t think you have to show all of it. As I get older, I still want to be sexy, but I want to do it in a different way. I want to do it in a way that’s more classy. Certain things are just too overt for kids.
I love Beyonce. I love her. I think she’s beautiful and talented. But, I think there has to be a fine line where you have to take responsibility for what you do. I think it’s good to be sexy, but sexy can come across in so many different ways. It doesn’t have to be everything showing out grinding, all of the time.
