She laid a foundation for us, and now she can sit back and reap the benefits of all of her hard work. She taught me to get out there and be the best I can be, and that's the main reason why I work so hard, because she instilled that in me. (Rolling Out, 12/05/01)

    Mekhi Phifer is a true actor. You really believe that he got into acting because he loves it for what it is. You'll never see him in any tabloids and you won't hear any gossip about him. In his roles, you sense more realism than many other actor's who are considered more talented than he. Of all of his roles in all of his movies, my favorite has to be "8 Mile."moreless
