    Nope. Smith’s daughter essentially told her dad that she wanted a break from the whole Hollywood thing and thereby dropped out of the role.

    I don’t like the original, to be honest. Hopefully the hip-hop version will be fun.

    No, she got older than the character as the production was delayed is apparently the main reason.

    Wallis is going to shine on the Red Carpet tonight. Really happy for all of you who have been so passionate for her.

    My, my, my this little girl is going no where! First the Steve McQueen film and now this? Very happy for Wallis! She is simply the most adorable thing on the planet, and has more talent than her little body can consume!

    Good for her! She deserves it. And now when this film comes out and she slays again she’ll prove her performance in Beasts was the real deal.
