Sanaa is covering the latest issue and dishes on quite a few things the public might not know about her.
Once shy and introverted, Sanaa says she has come out of her shell in recent years and unlike many celebs, credits her online interaction with fans for her new newfound openness.
Sanaa is very active on Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest; and said interacting with fans has shown her how truly powerful social media can be when used responsibly.
“I was very resistant to social media at first, and actually just a couple months ago when I was on [The Best Man Holiday] set, I started having fun with it. At first, it was just a creative thing for me, and then I got encouraged by everyone from my agent to the studios, to keep it up. It’s really interesting to me how involved social media can be from a business perspective, so I’m interested in exploring where it can go as it relates to my career.”
Sanaa is notorious for posting beautiful selfies on Instagram, and says she has been encouraged by fans who constantly ask her for beauty advice. “I have always been into beauty and healthy living. I have been contemplating starting a blog to share my daily routine and tons of tricks I have learned from some of the best make-up artists over the years. Once I find some free time I’m definitely going to get the ball rolling on that.”
In the meantime, fans can catch Sanaa in ‘The Best Man Holiday,’ which opened today and has already grossed over 13 million dollars. Early estimates say the film could wind up grossing as much as 33 million over the weekend and is running neck and neck with ‘Thor’ for first place.
