  1. Like she was going to get the part in the help anyways bye Lela. She obviously ain’t serious about acting anymore because she knows she can fall back on her movie director husband.

  2. There’s really no respectful way for me to say this but she’s a damn fool. Now people have been wondering what happened to her and now we know. It’s a shame because I always thought she was a good actress.

  3. What’s stupid? She didn’t understand the matrix movie just like sure none of u did. I didn’t understand what the f-ck was goin on in 1, 2 , or 3. What’s the movies about? She said she should have taken parts to stay relevant. But she didn’t need the $$$
