On her 'Mudbound' character:
Shedding Mary J. Blige for Florence gave Mary J. Blige some confidence... like a lot of it. [On set] I could hear people whispering, 'She's so beautiful.' And I was like, 'Who the hell are they talking about? I had just come back from performing on the Bad Boy Family Reunion tour with all the nails and the wigs, and I wasn't trying to depart from that," she admitted. "So when it came time to get into character, I was like, 'Can I wear a lace-front wig? Can I get some lashes? If I didn’t let go and give into the character, the movie probably wouldn’t be what it is right now. It was the one thing that needed to be done, and I couldn’t let Dee down.
