Personal Quote:

[on her courtship with her husband, Taye Diggs, whom she met through the musical "Rent"] Everyone got really close, but Taye and I especially became close friends. And then, one night, we went to the movies, and I think we saw Twister (1996), and he held my hand. And there it was! See more »
