Jurnee Smollett-Bell opens up about becoming her character, Judith, in Tyler Perry’s Temptation. The newlywed actress says she was intimidated by the character at first. “I was like, ‘Gosh I just got married, I just want to be a newlywed. I don’t want to have to think about what it would be like to cheat because I could not fathom that,'” she said, adding that Judith is someone who “has every intention to do good, to be a good girl. And yet somehow she takes this path.”
