You don't have to hit the jackpot to get lucky. Lottery Ticket, Naturi Naughton's new movie with Bow Wow, Ice Cube, and Brandon T. Jackson, opens this Friday, and we consider ourselves very fortunate to have caught up with the actress and singer in our latest issue (see the Lindsay Lohan, T.I., and B.o.B. covers on stands). Good fortune is yours as well, 'cause we just put her "Women Are Complex, Too" feature online, along with an extended gallery of her sexy pics. Keep reading for the interview, then click on the link for the photos, you lucky bastards!
As told to Carmen Villafañe
I'D RATHER BE HOT THAN COLD.
Naturi says: You can always take off clothes and start disrobing, but if it's too cold and you don't have anything to put on you're going to freeze, and that sucks.
I'D RATHER EAT UNTIL I'M STUFFED THAN FEEL LIKE I'M STARVING.
Naturi says: A lot of people don't know, but I love soul food. I love fried chicken and pork chops, all of that.
I'D RATHER TALK TO YOU; IF I CAN'T, THEN I'LL TEXT.
Naturi says: Honestly, I'm old-school. We don't even know the inflection of our own voices—we can't finish each other's sentences anymore—because of texting. I like the beautiful old-school saying "I can't wait until you call." That's how you get to know somebody.
I'D RATHER YOU NOT PRIMP YOURSELF THE WAY A WOMAN DOES.
Naturi says: He can get a pedicure, but I don't think it should be regular. I would draw the line if he begins arching his brows and applying clear nail polish. No, no, no! That is not acceptable.
I'D RATHER KEEP THINGS UNDER WRAPS.
Naturi says: People don't have to know everything. I think sometimes if you let it all hang out, it makes you a target. Keeping it to yourself leaves room for mystery.
I'D RATHER KNOW YOUR ENTIRE PAST.
Naturi says: I don't want everything, but I can't know nothing at all. In the end, just keep it all the way real.
I'D RATHER PLAY ON THE FIELD.
Naturi says: I was a cheerleader in high school, but I love to play basketball. Even though I'm short, I would go against anybody—I didn't care if you worked out. I'm still like that.
I'D RATHER IT BE BIG THAN SMALL.
Naturi says: It depends on what we're talking about—I'm trying not to think dirty—but I am definitely going to go with big because I'd rather have too much than too little.
