Mo’Nique, the sometime comedian took home the Golden Globe for best supporting actress for her dramatic role as an abusive mom in “Precious: Based on the novel ‘Push,’ by Sapphire,” and gave one of the most moving speeches of the night.
She dedicated her win to abuse victims everywhere, ending by saying, “For every person who’s ever been touched [inappropriately], it’s time to tell.”
She also thanked her life partner, referring to a moment “when I looked into your eyes at 14 and said we are going to be stars.”
Mo’Nique may have been so wrapped up in preparing her remarks, in fact, that she forgot to take care of a little beauty matter before the awards – shaving her legs.
And if she was at all embarrassed by her shaggy state, she didn’t show it. On the contrary, whether inadvertently or not, she picked up the skirt of her long gown on the red carpet, exposing the issue.
A long dress covers a multitude of personal appearance sins – until you pull it up.
Mo’Nique has more important things on her mind than personal grooming.
For true Mo’Nique fans, however, her hairy red carpet appearance will come as no surprise.
