Sanaa Lathan is not playing with these young jawns out here! Not. At. All. The soon to be 44-year-old baddie graces the cover of the August/September issue of Upscale magazine, and she looks absolutely stunning.

Lathan turns 44 next month, her new thriller, The Perfect Guy is in theaters next month, and she’s in pre-production for Best Man Wedding. In other words, she is a busy lady.

Here are some highlights from her interview:

On Always Wanting To Act

“I was a toddler on Broadway, basically. My mom was in the original cast of The Wiz on Broadway. I was always around it, behind the scenes. My father is the first black director in TV. It gets no more in your face than that.”

On Being In The Family Business

“I’ve never worked with my father. A lot of people say that’s nepotism and part of the reason for my success.”

What’s Next

“I am moving into the behind-the-scenes aspect now. When you’ve been in the business so long, you say to yourself, “I know how to do this.” I know you can never say never, but I’ll never stop acting. I’ll just keep adding to what the word “performance” ultimately means to me.”
