Gladys Knight Scared Of Perry Role Opposite Henson, Blige

Gladys Knight admits to being apprehensive when it came time to appear as Wilma in Tyler Perry’s latest picture, ‘I Can Do Bad All By Myself’. Sitting down with Perry during a special TBS presentation dubbed ‘The Tyler Perry Show’ Wednesday night, Knight told the director “I was scared”. Moving beyond the apprehension, Knight later thanked Perry for making sure she remained Wilma throughout her stint at his Atlanta based studio. “This man is amazing as a director. He did not allow me to be Gladys Knight, he made me Wilma (character),” says Knight. As previously reported on Singersroom, the Grammy-winner appears alongside Pastor Marvin Winans, Mary J. Blige and Taraji P. Henson in the flick, which opens in theaters Friday.
