Handsome heartthrob Kofi Siriboe tells ESSENCE what it's like being a sexy symbol and working with Jada Pinkett Smith for the first time.
If you’ve seen the trailer for upcoming film Girls Trip, you already know that the sex scene between Jada Pinkett-Smith and Kofi Siriboe looks mighty hot.
During an interview at ESSENCE Festival 2017, Siriboe sat down with ESSENCE to discuss his newfound fandom and what it was like to star opposite a veteran actress like Smith in such a steamy scene.
“[It was] like a dream come true, literally,” he said. “I’ve been watching her since back, back, back in the day. I respect Will Smith so much. He’s been one of my favorite actors. Again for what he represents to the culture. Producing. Creating. His whole family is just on that first family of Hollywood. You know, I just respect it. To be a part of it in any way is very humbling.”
The film, which also stars Queen Latifah, Regina Hall , Tiffany Haddish and Larenz Tate, features the antics of four best friends who reunite for the ultimate girls’ trip in New Orleans at ESSENCE Festival after five years apart.
During the three-day festival, crowds of female fans chased Siriboe at every sighting, but it’s great to see that the Queen Sugar star is staying humble and gracious in the wake of his newfound mega fame.
