When you have a big ensemble film, the director makes his cuts based on the way the scenes impact the storyline, right? Usually. But not in the case of this hit film! The first actress – who has won many big awards during her long acting career – did not know the director. She put in an amazing performance… but her part was almost entirely cut out of the film. The second performer hadn’t acted in years. However, she is close friends with the director, has a huge ego, and really wants to win an acting award. So she begged the director for the part, then dropped a project upon which many people’s livelihood was dependent to take this role. It was completely selfish on her part. Almost all of her scenes were left intact, even though some weren’t that great and didn’t contribute much to the storyline. So, were these two members of the cast really treated so differently based on their roles? Or was it because of their relationship with the director? Or was it because of their race? People close to the production say it was definitely the latter. Will the second performer acknowledge that? Hell no! She loves to stir up race issues… but only when it benefits her and her enormous ego.
