'Certain things are just too overt for kids'Garcelle Beauvais
Actress Garcelle Beauvais has some unsolicited advice for Beyoncé.
According to the 47-year-old White House Down star, 32 year old Beyonce should ‘take responsibility’ for how her sexed-up image, with ‘everything showing out, grinding,’ affects young fans.
The twice-divorced mother of three expressed her views in an interview with HelloBeautiful.com.
‘For me, you’re obviously flattered when someone calls you sexy or thinks you’re sexy,’ the stunning actress told the site. ‘But for me now, there’s so many ways to be sexy without being overt about it.’
Possibly referring to Beyoncé’s risque opening performance with her husband Jay Z at the Grammys, which raised the ire of parents, Garcelle said: ‘I want to do it in a way that’s more classy. Certain things are just too overt for kids.’
A former model, the Haitian-born actress portrayed plenty of sexy characters a decade or so ago an was voted one of The 10 Sexiest Women of 2001 by the readers of Black Men Magazine.
‘I love Beyoncé… but, I think there has to be a fine line where you take responsibility for what you do,’ she added. ‘I think it’s good to be sexy, but sexy can come across in so many different ways. It doesn’t have to be showing out, grinding all of the time.’
Asked what her idea of sexy is, the ageless beauty said: ‘I think you can wear a great short dress, but if you have long sleeves and you’re only showing leg. I think you have to stick to a body part and show that. I don’t think you have to show all of it.’
