    Congratulations Fine Actor! Says:

    Ejiofor has paid his dues over the years. Plus, I always love the actors who really studied this fine art form. There are so many fine actors who also studied the craft and they are dreaming for opportunities, but they get tossed aside for someone cute and popular.

    So, happy for him. So glad he thanked his family (Mom,sisters, brother and his niece and nephew). No thank you, for his arm piece. What was that all about. I’m not sure things are as some magazines make them out to be between the two of them. If the rumor is true about Chiwetel and Lupita that means he couldn’t have been with his current that long. Also, haven’t you heard his current gf is nothing more than a fame whorer. It’s noticeable on the red carpet . She’s all over him as if she’s the star and of course that was an ugly dress she had on tonight. Since, it seems they only been together since 12 years rapped . Sure hope she doesn’t have a bun in the oven that would be bad, back to that ugly dress what could she be hiding.
