VIDEO: Naomie Harris Was Hesitant to Play A Crack Addict As A Woman In 'Moonlight'!

Naomie Harris is getting major Oscar buzz for her portrayal of a verbally abusive, crack-addicted mother in the indie Moonlight, but she almost didn’t take the role!

The 40-year-old actress has revealed that she had reservations about playing Paula, the mother of the main character due to her longtime personal pledge to only take on roles that have positive images of women.

“I grew up with very strong, intelligent, powerful women and I don’t feel like they were reflected enough on film, certainly when I was growing up,” Naomie expressed during an Actress Roundtable discussion for THR. “I think that has changed a lot now, but I didn’t feel as though they were reflected enough on-screen so I sort of made it my mission that I was going to make my choices based on portraying positive images of women in general, and black women in particular. I didn’t feel as though a crack-addict fitted into that.”

Naomie and director Barry Jenkins sat down with TimesTalks to discuss Moonlight at the Brooklyn Public Library on Tuesday (November 29) in the Brooklyn borough of New York City.

That same day, Naomie was spotted all smiles while making her way inside Good Morning America to continue her promotion for the film, as well as Collateral Beauty.

Do you remember when Amy Adams and Taraji P. Henson hit the stage for performances at the Oscars? Well, if you thought they were comfortable on stage, they were actually so nervous! The Oscar-nominated actresses opened up about their experiences during an Actress Roundtable discussion for The Hollywood Reporter.

Also included were Natalie Portman, Emma Stone, Naomie Harris, Annette Bening, and Isabelle Huppert.

Amy performed a song from Enchanted back in 2008 while Taraji hit the stage in 2006 for Hustle and Flow.

“The worst stage fright I ever had was singing alone at the Oscars,” Amy said.

“Very scary,” Taraji replied. “At least you didn’t have to sing about pimps and whores.”

“You actually did it. That was the first year I was nominated, and I was like, ‘She is up there, singing at the Oscars,’” Amy responded. Taraji replied, “It was pretty scary. I had to look over everyone’s heads because it’s not like what I’m singing about is the most … you know.”
