Twitter Reminisces On LaTanya Richardson Jackson's Iconic Nice-Nasty Character In 'The Fighting Temptations'

Twitter is reminiscing on LaTanya Richardson Jackson’s role in 2003’s The Fighting Temptations, thanks to a viral scene from the film.

Twitter user @itsKary_ posted a clip from the film in which Beyoncé‘s character Lilly confronts Jackson’s character Paulina about her child, to which Paulina reads her for having a child out of wedlock.

“Lmao she used to drag them to hell,” they wrote.

Other commenters left hilarious tweets about how Paulina kept the other characters on their toes.

“She gagged them with that,” wrote one commenter. Another wrote, “I watched this on Christmas and hollered! The way she says BYLAWS and BIBLE STUDY!”

“She really played her role too well,” wrote another fan, with another adding, “Beyonce was gagged a bit ngl.”

Others commented on how audiences rarely see Jackson and her superstar husband Samuel L. Jackson act together.

“I actually want to see her and her husband act together,” wrote one Twitter user. Another wrote, “This being Samuel L. Jackson’s wife is what the kicker is.”

Jackson has recently been seen on Broadway, starring in The Piano Lesson alongside John David Washington, Danielle Brooks and her husband. Jackson will also direct in her Broadway directorial debut, making her the first woman to direct an August Wilson play on Broadway.
