I’m real emotional about Sunday already. The Oscars on Sunday? When Mo’Nique’s totally going to win Best Supporting Actress for her life-changing performance in Precious. Life-changing. I went there and I mean it. I’m real into Mo’Nique winning and so it’s a pretty good thing that there’s almost no chance she can lose.
With Mo’Nique, it’s more than just the fact that she knocked her role out of the park, I also just think she’s awesome. The NY Post got a preview of her interview from the 29th Annual Barbara Walter Oscar Special and here are the highlights:
On her open marriage to her husband Sidney:
“Let me say this: I have not had sex outside my marriage with Sidney. Could Sid have sex outside of his marriage with me? Yes. That’s not a deal-breaker. That’s not something that would make us say, ‘Pack your things and let’s end the marriage…’
“We’ve been best friends for over 25 years, and we truly know who we are. Oftentimes, people get into marriages and they don’t know who they’re laying next to. I’m very comfortable and secure with my husband.”
On her hairy legs:
“He loves the hairy legs and if Sid likes the hairy legs, there you go. I tried shaving one time, and it was so uncomfortable and painful. I said never again would I do that to myself. I’m 42 and I’m very hairy.”
On her potential Oscar speech:
“I don’t like thinking about that, because I’m big on the universe. I don’t want to start making this speech or [think about what] I’m going to say because I don’t want the universe to say, ‘Really? You so sure about that?’ Let’s not jinx it.”
Alright, so she doesn’t want to jinx it, but I will. That hairy-legged lady is going to win so hard.
The full interview will air Oscar Sunday and make sure to tune in because this year is Barbara Walter’s last year of doing the legendary special!
