I mean, obviously, in our town unless we're doing FUBU film-making which is what we were doing [last] summer, which is what we call 'for us, by us'- film making, you are normally THE ONE and it's incredibly challenging to find a mate, much less find a comfort level.

It's not the fact that we were shooting at in the morning at the end of a very long day it was just emotionally trying.
And we forget that we always say 'I want a good man! As actors, if it's not your coverage [in the scene], not that you don't give your full [performance while standing outside the shot] but you're certainly not crying and I look over and Idris' face is just wet, he's crying with me and he's holding my hand-- [the cameras] are not even on him.
