She’s Black America’s sweetheart. From the moment she graced the big screen alongside Cuba Gooding Jr in “Boyz N The Hood,” we were hooked on her Black girl next door charm. Coco girls had to give it to her, Nia Long is freaking hot! From “Fresh Prince of Bel Air,” “Friday,” to “Love Jones,” her selection of roles have been discriminating–always projecitng a positive representation of Black American womanhood, even amid her ceaseless sexy, make the boys swoon. Guess this is why we dig her so much. But it’s her added innate personal style, her smile and her tresses are always on point whether she’s in a weave or rocking her signature low cut. At 40, this actress, mother, and philanthropist is a continual inspiration. We love you Nia!
