Sanaa Covers Jet

Sanaa Lathan is covering next week’s edition of Jet magazine. The 39-year old “Contagion” actress talks about her new film, which has an all star cast that includes, among others, Kate Winslet, Laurence Fishburne, Jude Law and Gwyneth Platrow.

Sanaa also touches a bit on her private life- answering questions about her love life and whether or not she has plans to eventually have children.

Check out excerpts below.

Family values:
“My parents broke up when I was 5 years old. My father remarried and they’ve been together since I was 12. Now we’re all a big happy family. At Thanksgiving, my mom was over there cooking! I learned that relationships can evolve into friendships.”

Having kids:
“We shall see. It’s in God’s hands whether I have children or not. I am not interested in doing anything out of fear or due to age. If the right situation unfolds, I’ll have children. If it doesn’t, I won’t.

Her favorite role:
“I had a lot of fun doing my last play. It was great playing this drunken old lady. I had the opportunity to stretch as an actress.”

Her hidden talents:
“I can really cook.”

Her secret obsession:
“I jump on a mini trampoline every day. It’s my favorite form of exercise.”

Her biggest fear:
“Losing my passion, not caring anymore, losing my drive.”
