Morris Chestnut Covers UPSCALE Magazine



On his role in The Best Man Holiday:
“This movie, this was the most challenging thing that I’ve ever had to do. I was just so emotional. The character was just so emotional—way more than the first one. When we did the first movie, the scene where I was at the altar and I had to cry when I was getting married, that shook me. For, like, years, I would think about that scene. It would give me chills.”
On marital roles:
“I let my wife be the woman. You know? I let her be the woman. And she, in turn, when it comes down to it, she lets me be the man.”
On keeping his relationship strong:
“With my wife, I’m always letting her know what the deal is. ‘It’s you. Ain’t nobody else. It’s you.’ And I think, conversely, that’s what a woman needs to do for a man.”
