BET’s “Sistas” & “Zatima” Star Crystal Hayslett is one of the ones to watch when you think of todays actresses and we can’t wait to see what she does next!!
Crystal is very supportive of those that came before her and she wants to give “The Cosby Show” actress Phylicia Rashad her flowers.
During Women’s History Month, REVOLT spoke with a few stars who all shared one thing they never want Black women to forget and, out of all the women in Hollywood, whose biopic is long overdue.
Crystal was quick to shat Phylicia!
“That’s a good question, and you come out strong with the questions. I would say Phylicia Rashad — she’s been in the game since we were children and still doing it. Knowing her story would be really cool, and I know she has much to talk about. In this society, I never want Black women to forget they are the standard — a lot of the time, we don’t see ourselves or reflections of ourselves on billboards or different markets, but if you look, there are so many reflections of us. We are the standard, and don’t ever forget that,”
We love this and maybe Crystal will get to Star in the biopic as well!!
