Nia Long has been in tons of films, but one director she’s tipping her hat to is Tyler Perry. Long told us exclusively on the set of Best Man Holiday that Perry pulled out all the stops to get her to be in his latest film The Single Moms Club and once on set, treated she and her castmates like “queens”.
“It was the most well oiled machine, you’ve ever seen operate,” Long said of Perry and his production crew. “You get there, you’re treated like a queen, you have fresh flowers in your trailer every day.”
And if that’s not enough, the Brooklyn native also revealed that Perry even cast her 11 year old son Masai as her son in the movie, so she wouldn’t have to be away from him while filming in Atlanta.
Tyler Perry’s The Single Moms Club is in theaters March 14, 2014.
