Everything You Want To Know About Michael Ealy

Hey Cuties,

I had an incredible opportunity that the ladies on my news feed are drooling over honey. Ha! I and few of my media buddies sat down with actor Michael Ealy to chat with him about his new movie The Intruder co-starring Meagan Good, and Dennis Quaid. The Intruder is out in theaters May 3rd.

*There are no spoilers in our interview*

The Intruder

Scott and Annie Russell couldn’t be happier after buying their dream home from a mysterious and lonely widower named Charlie in Napa Valley, Calif. Their newfound paradise soon turns into a living nightmare when Charlie — still strangely attached to the house — begins to show up and interfere in their daily lives. When his erratic behavior turns to obsession, the young couple soon finds themselves caught up in a violent confrontation that threatens to destroy everything they hold dear.

    What an amazing opportunity and a great interview. Great questions too!

  2. Kita Bryant

    He used to be my crush something about those eyes lol. Can’t wait to see this new movie and great interview you are becoming the blogger version of Oprah!

  3. K. Elizabeth

    I definitely agree that he comes off very chill and down to earth. I’m so glad he’s back playing a good guy in The Intruder. I’m interested to see how Dennis Quaid embraces his role because I’m used to seeing him playing the good guy in movies. It’s going to be interested in seeing him play the villain role.

    Also, kudos to Michael for not backing down from the gun control question because so many celebrities shy away from publically voicing their opinions on important political/controversial topics like this.

      Denni Quaid totally flipped the script in this one.

      Yes! He was thoughtful and honest and I respect someone who isn’t afraid to be honest regardless off their position.

  4. Elle

    He is an excellent actor and I enjoy watching him on the big screen. I also like Meaghan good, so I’m sure I will be watching this film soon.

  5. Kiwi

    We both got to interview him. Go us!!! Wasn’t the movie so good it was amazing!

  6. Ola

    I love what he says about “mental clutter”. Soooo true. His thoughts on light vs dark skin were also interesting and honest.

  7. Kiwi

    Isn’t he the nicest? He is so humble and he is definitely more than just a handsome face (but it’s still awesome to look at while interviewing right). Loved this movie and he did well with Meagan!

  8. Eva

    I love how you did this! So cool to let us jump to the answers we want. And he’s a local? DC (area) has really raised some talent!

    • MimiCuteLips

      Ha! Thanks, I like to skip around sometimes. Yes, I didn’t know this was home for me. That made me like him even more. DC pumps out some talent.

  9. Essence Sylvia Smith

    You’re so lucky that you got to meet him. I am so ready to see this movie but I am nervous lol. Love the photo.

  10. Kasi

    This was a great interview, everyone did a great job! His answers and personality are making me want to go see it. Not to mention those eyes!

  11. Nadalie Bardo

    OMG this movie looks soo good. I am 100% love how the horror genre is being taken over (and dominated) by actors and actresses of color. Jordan Peale effect anyone?

  12. Kim

    I want to see this not just for Michael Ealy … okay, maybe I’m lying, but I also love Meaghan Goode. I heard this movie is good.
