Here's Why Amandla Stenberg Doesn't Care About 'The Hate U Give' Box Office Numbers

Amandla Stenberg is the star of the new movie The Hate U Give and she has received rave reviews for her performance in the film, but she doesn’t care if the movie is a box office success.

The 20-year-old actress opened up in Glamour‘s new issue about what she does care about, and that’s the message of the important movie.

“If we’ve done the job right, movies like The Hate U Give will be a tool in depicting that sort of cultural appropriation, why it’s insensitive, why it’s not cool,” Amandla said.

We’re glad to report that in its limited release so far, The Hate U Give has already been pulling in impressive numbers at the box office! The movie expands nationwide this weekend so make sure to see it.
