Less than two weeks after the 47-year-old actress made headlines for her controversial remarks in The Hollywood Reporter, the Oscar winner, who took home the Academy Award in 2010 for her role in the Lee Daniels-directed film Precious, is now addressing her claims in a sit-down interview with Good Morning America, which aired earlier this morning.
In a candid essay in the Feb. 27 issue of The Hollywood Reporter, Mo'Nique wrote that director Lee Daniels told her she had been "blackballed" in Hollywood because she "didn't play the game," and in response, the 55-year-old producer issued a statement to THR saying, Mo'Nique's "demands through Precious were not always in line with the campaign. This soured her relationship with the Hollywood community."
"People were saying someone needs to teach Monique a lesson because she's not playing the game," Mo'Nique explained during her chat with GMA. "And she's going to get in her own way of winning this award because it seems like she's choosing her family over Hollywood."
