Meagan Good Says that Pushing Her Sexy Side Has Made People Take Her Less Seriously

By  |  121 Comments


Meagan Good is no stranger to attention or controversy.  The preacher’s wife who once said that she wanted to be a “sexy Christian,” is now saying that her determination to be seen as a sexy adult has come back to haunt her.

Good has a big role coming up in the film “Anchorman,” which deviates from previous roles that define her as a man’s love interest.  She says that this is a relief because she’d started to feel boxed in during her twenties.  Starting off as a child star and seeking to define her womanhood as a lot of child actors do, Good pushed out sexy images of herself in order to show that she was now an adult.

But now, Good says that pushing her sexy side caused her to lose out on a lot of opportunities, since audiences don’t take her seriously as a quality actress.

During a recent interview with Complex Magazine, Good explained her struggles.

“When I got into my 20s, I was fighting for people to see that the little girl from Friday and Eve’s Bayou wasn’t a little girl anymore. That’s why my career took the “sexy” turn. By my mid-20s, it had backfired. I was always playing the sexy roles. It was hard for me to be taken seriously as a good actress. I had to fight my way out of that box that people put me in.”

Good also says that she loves being in her thirties, which she defines as re-living your twenties as a wiser and more confident person.

“I’m just now getting into my 30s, and this is the best I’ve ever felt inside and the best I’ve ever looked. I’m so ready. It’s like reliving your 20s but so much better, with a stronger sense of who you are and who you’re not. Because of that, I’ve never felt sexier. It’s a whole new kind of ‘sexy’ turn for me.”

Maybe Good should realize that whatever you’re selling, people are going to buy.  She has been pushing the sexy for years, and that’s what people have noticed.  Can she ever get out of that box?  Only time will tell.

    She’s allowed to grow up, she’s allowed to go after her dreams. I thought actors were suppose to be diversed in their ability to sell their craft. She’s older now and if she’s at an age where she wants to be taken more seriously then good for her, but there are actresses out there are sexy and still get good roles. So do you and be confident in your abilities.

    She can’t help that she oozes sexiness, A LOT OF BLACK WOMEN DO! What should she do, put it on a shelf and look common!? Its like what was said earlier, you don’t hear white women having to apologize for being sexy (haha)! Black women are the sexiest women to walk the face of this earth so, get over it!! That’s not the reason she’s not getting the roles anyway. She not getting the roles because Hollywood doesn’t think black women sale!! Now the black man, oh they all want the black man to pair off with the white women, which sales!!!

    Meagan,you can be sexy with your clothes on without showing your Breast and other parts of your body.Look at other Black actresses as examples who have succeeded at the end of the day know one will respect you when you expose your body parts.Do you want people to come see your body parts or your talent as a actress ,you can’t hide your curves but you don’t have to expose them.As far as being a Preachers wife or anyones wife you should want keep your body parts to your husbands eyes only and its not your husband that your embarrassing its the office that he represents.You have been in this field since you were a child you know how the game is played if you can’t get the roles you want wait for them to come or find a new career playing the part of a Preachers will pay you higher dividend.

    As a Preacher’s wife, she should put the whole sexy! on the back burner and learn to be sexy for her Husband ONLY. Marriage is in the eyes of God. Once she does that “SERIOUSLY” The movie roles will start comming at her so fast, till she won’t know what hit her. it Appears that she’s Gotten THE GIRLS Enlarged.Hmmmm I’m thinking she wants to show those off to the world. well cover them up, all the way up Hunnie, and let your hubby have his way with them. Real Talk!!!!

    Meagan Good didn’t educate herself enough to know that being a minister wife calls for her to live more for God and saving souls who are lost in the world in Hollywood. God chose Meagan through her husband to help other actresses but Meagan still hasn’t cleaned Hollywood out her spiritual system but she will if she seeks her inner spirit the holy spirit. I wish her husband the best with her because he also is responsible for his wife because he chose Meagan and knew her life style. The world is not to judge Meagan but your outside reflects your inside.

    if she wants to be the type of actress that shows her stuff, then fine, do that do it well and move on. if she wants decent and respectable parts, keep the clothes on, it brings shame to the husband. we know you got the “parts”
