Zoe is an incredible actress–I think that she’s a fine actress. I think that there should be some work done, like a prosthetic nose would be helpful and definitely some darker makeup. If Forest Whittaker can become darker in “The Last King Of Scotland” than I believe Nina should be treated with that respect. She was very adamant about her color about her nose about her shape and her self and there needs to be some homage paid to that.

Grammy Award-winning artist, Jill Scott opens up on Zoe Saldana portraying legendary singer and civil rights activist, Nina Simone. (Hello Beautiful)
