From Cosby kid to mini-mogul, Raven Symone has been in the business longer than most twice her age.
From starring roles on That’s So Raven to producing the popular Cheetah Girls films, Symone hasn’t stopped working since she captured our hearts as the smart-mouthed tot on the Cosby Show.
Recently Raven talked with Vibe Magazine about her recent weight loss, her new TV show, State of Georgia, and why she you won’t see her in any sex tape scandals anytime soon (hint: she loves her family!).
On reactions to her weight loss:
I find it funny that people now come up to me and say, ‘Wow, you are absolutely gorgeous’. I’m like, ‘I was beautiful before I lost weight. Egotistically speaking, I thought I was amazing’
On why she keeps it PG 13:
It’s not so much about showing my sexy side because of the kids, I have to answer to my mama and brother, my dad and my grandparents, the ones I have to look in the eyes every day when I take my weave and eyelashes out.
On her new character:
Ironically, my character is supposed to be the size that I was before. So I have to wear thicker body pads on the show.
Raven’s new show State of Georgia premieres on ABC Family Channel Wednesday June 23 at 8:30 p.m.
What do you think of Raven’s new look?
*Shout out to Necole Bitchie for the heads up!
