Thandie Newton: 'For Colored Girls' Made Me Feel Possessed!

Thandie Newton dresses up in Calvin Klein as she drops by Hollywood’s Jimmy Kimmel Live studio on Tuesday (November 2) to promote her latest film, For Colored Girls.

The 37-year-old British actress, who plays a rebellious and promiscuous bartender in the drama (out this Friday), recently revealed she found the role extremely challenging.

“I felt like I was possessed … I felt uncomfortable exploring this sexually-depraved, mean, negative energy,” she told

“I really felt very vulnerable because it’s so not who I am, at all,” she added.

On Monday, Thandie (in a Louis Vuitton top, Marni shorts, and Sergio Rossi shoes) stepped out for the Lionsgate screening of For Colored Girls at the Landmark Theater in L.A.

The event benefited The HerShe Group, which mentors girls in foster care in Los Angeles.

    the Brits are very patronizing and you can see it how they look so confident talking to the American interviewer with their posh British accents. That’s the only way to score on the American exceptionalism..but wait where did the british accent go in the movie..

  • the truth

    @She-whom-shall-not-be-named It is called ACTING! Just like actors ADD accents when they are playing a certain role, they can SUBTRACT them when they need to do so! Do you know that she is patronizing? Why put her down?

  • zoz

    She’s perfect !

    LOL @ the posh British accents! There are many British accents, not just one like there are many American accents. Thandie’s accent isn’t posh…it’s the result of a good education. If you had ever heard a Hooray Henry accent then you would know the difference.
    She’s a very intelligent, talented and beautiful woman. I admire her immensely and adore her smile. She has one of the nicest, most genuine smiles I’ve seen.

  • Ms Bar Jolie Gaga
