We all know it is a ”dog eat dog” world especially in Hollywood. In a recent feature with Uptown Magazine actress Uzo Aduba who is of Nigerian descent reveals who she believes are her true Hollywood friends, what it feels like to be recognized, plus what motivates her


On her friends in Hollywood…

”I have loved Viola Davis for awhile. She is a phenomenal actor and one that does interesting work and has not been afraid to go over the line. Tracee Ellis Ross is dynamic, her character work is fantastic and she is smart, supportive and super chic. On top of it, she has an incredible generosity. Gabrielle [Union] is a sweetheart and loving and wildly gracious.”


On her motivation

”My parents were less interested in what the pursuit was, so long as you pursued it with excellence. That is really the Nigerian mentality: putting your best self into it. It’s not about being number one, but no Nigerian parent will ever complain about that! My mom always said ‘I have never heard of nothing coming from hard work. I don’t know when it will come, but it will come.’”
