Have you watched Tyler Perry’s new Netflix thriller “A Fall From Grace”? If you have and if you are on Twitter then I am sure you are well aware of all of the sentiment that was expressed about the wigs used in the movie. With all the opinions that were being shared on Twitter, I was curious about how Tyler felt about everything.
Turns out ahead of the January 17th debut of the show he did an interview with Hello Beautiful where he shared that he had an entire argument over the wigs with Crystal Fox, the star of the film.
“We had a knockdown, drag-out argument about the wigs in one of the scenes,” Perry said. “It was very emotional for her.”
Perry explained that it’s important for his characters to be transformed in a way that differentiates them from the actor portraying them.
Fox made the point that “As a woman of color, our hair is part of the journey so it is very, very important. And to some people it is hard to stress that it is that important,” she said.
Perry agreed noting – “As long as you figure it out before it’s time to shoot. I’m good. I don’t have time to wait five hours and spend $10 million to figure out which curl is right for you,”.
Twitter had pretty much the same sentiment at Fox but they were a bit more direct with the comments.
One user tweeted – “Has anyone discussed #TylerPerry’s history of putting cornball wigs on men yet? Including himself,”.
Another user said:
And this is why shooting a movie in 1 week is ridiculous!
