Sanaa Lathan Puts Famous Hollywood Actresses On Blast For Treating Her ‘Just Horribly’

With a career spanning more than 20 years, you will definitely have tons of experiences and moments that you’ll never forget. 

Does maybe-chomping down on Beyoncé make the cut? Who knows?  

During the New York City premiere of Netflix’s new movie, Nappily Ever After, Sanaa Lathan chose to chat about working in Hollywood’s far-than-friendly atmosphere.

“Just coming up in the business, I have been treated just horribly by some women that you may know. I won’t call any names,” she explained. “But when you’re working with somebody who’s maybe a little older than you— now I’m the older one— you don’t expect to get competition, and jealousy, and weird vibes on set. And I was very hurt, very early on in my career by a couple of different women.”

She has shared sets with many very famous actresses, so it’s hard to try to pin-point who she could be talking about, right?


Oh and she also noted that she relishes her relationship with co-star, Lynn Whitfield, whom she described as a “light”. 

“You can tell that. She’s so beautiful inside and out,” Sanaa added. Awww!


But back to the blind item. Any guesses? 



Tiffany Haddish previously spilled the beans about Sanaa’s supposed nibbling habits.



Tiff also revealed that Sanaa’s family was ticked off over the fact that she had made this revelation. 

"I'm super good friends with her stepmom and her dad [Stan, a producer-director], and they were mad at me,” the comedian dished. "They were like, 'Why would you do this to the family? You know, black actresses, you guys have to stick together, it's so hard for you guys to get work as it is, why would you try to ruin her career?' But I didn't try to ruin her career. I never said her name! I was just trying to say how Beyoncé kept me from goin' to jail that night. I coulda just shut my whole career down."

Yup. The guessing games begun after Tiff recalled in an interview with GQ that a star bit Beyoncé while getting a little too close with the singer's husband, Jay Z at a party Tiffany attended back in December 2017.

"There was this actress there that's just, like, doing the mostest. She bit Beyoncé in the face." "So Beyoncé stormed away, went up to Jay-Z, and was like, 'Jay! Come here! This [expletive]...’ and snatched him. They went to the back of the room. I was like, 'What just happened?' And Beyoncé's friend walked up and was like, 'Can you believe this [expletive] just bit Beyoncé?'”

Sanaa has repeatedly denied the accusation that she was behind the bite.

No, but, really, who was mean to Sanaa?
