Monique mentions that she prefers to keep some simple makeup on for her daily, everyday life. When asked about LeToya’s start to the day, Monique explains how she’ll be waking up with some music playing. Monique continues by explaining that LeToya would then be brushing her hair, she’d be putting on some full face makeup, and she’d make sure that she’d get her nails done. Monique also mentions that LeToya would pair her outfits with some accessories as well.
When asked about portraying LeToya, Monique mentioned that she was a lot of fun to play, especially when playing with the dynamic between her and Milo. When asked if Monique did anything off-camera to help build any chemistry between LeToya and Milo, Monique mentioned that she didn’t. She talks about how she has spent a good, amount of time with Milo when they’re not rolling on set. They asked each other a series of questions that helped contribute to their character’s chemistry in the movie.
