KELLY ROWLAND RETURNS TO ACTING 166x250 Kelly Rowland To Get Serious About Her Acting Though you may not think of Kelly Rowland as an actress, the young diva has actually starred in two movies (The Seat Filler & Freddy vs. Jason) and made guest appearances on numerous television series (The Hughleys, Girlfriends, Eve). Kelly was recently seen making a cameo on the reality TV show “The A-List: New York,” but now says she is ready to jump into dramatic acting and on a serious level.

In a recent interview the singer says she has greatly been influenced by other African American women on the screen and recently finished reading “Getting to Happy,” the sequel to Terry McMillan’s blockbuster novel “Waiting to Exhale.” Kelly says “Happy” is set to get the “Exhale” movie treatment, and that she hopes to test read for a role. Twentieth Century Fox announced earlier this year that they had already purchased the rights to turn the book into a film and that McMillan and Lori Lakin Hutcherson would be writing the script.

When it was released back in 1995, “Waiting to Exhale” grosses over 67 million dollars and spawned a mega soundtrack that produced such classic R n’ B hits as “Exhale (Shoop Shoop)” by Whitney Houston, “Not Gon’ Cry” by Mary J. Blige and “Sittin’ Up In My Room” by Brandy.

  1. I would love to see Kelly branch out into more dramatic movies. i saw her in freddy vs jason and i did not like the cursing because she is a church girl and a christian, but i would love to see her acting. i wish her the best and greatest that life has to offer her.

  2. I hope it works out and goes well for her. I’m curious to see her acting skills. I have seen her acting before, but that was some time ago, and so I wonder what she is like now.

  3. Kelly should do well as a actress she has my support wishing you well miss Kelly.

  4. Good for her…I loved her on girlfriens! Best of luck!

  5. Good luck to her. Get a great acting coach and really work and hone the craft. Do theater! Do soap operas… or something. She should do whatever she wants; take advantage of the Hollywood machine because it is a big one and there’s room for all.

  6. I have both The Seat Filler and Freddy vs Jason cuz I support Destiny’s Child but Kelly’s acting isn’t that good. If she gets the part I’ll probably see it. It sounds like a movie we’d go see for Girl’s Night Out. It’s crazy how much support she gets in comment sections on here than another child of destiny.

    So true!

    I think Kelly will be an even stronger actress, even though, she was fine in seat filler and other acting roles…she wasn’t bad, just need more experience, coaching, etc…I would go and talk to Alfre Woodward, Sanaa, Meryle Streep, Angelina Jolie and ask if they would give me 15 minutes…acting isn’t about pretending, it’s about “being”…the reality of that character…we all have these shields within…it takes artistic integrity, vulnerability and transparency to bare our souls and feel safe or ignore self-consciousness while doing it.

    Kelly can do it and launch her own production company and do her own “girlfriend” movie if she doesn’t get the role.

    Kelly what about your music and album that was suppose to drop this year? I have both movies as well. Seat Filler wasn’t that bad it was just a low budget film. Bring it Kelly don’t let that pretty face and gorgeous body go to waste.

  9. I agree with cynthinia Took the words right out of my mouth,And that’s a feat :)

    acting isn’t about pretending, it’s about “being”…
