It’s hard to find a person who saw “Love Jones” and stayed indifferent. To this day, this movie is one of my favorites and I can watch it over and over again. And let’s be honest, it’s even harder to find a movie that good that is worth watching it more than once. “Love Jones” is definitely one of the classics. Essence magazine caught up with Nia Long, Larenz Tate and Isaiah Washington to reminisce on what it was like to be in that move as the 15 anniversary approaches. Read the highlights below:
First impressions of the Love Jones script:
NIA LONG: I was like, “I love this, and I want to do it.” There was no question. There was also the excitement of, “Oh my gosh, my first leading role.” And I think it shaped the rest of my career.
