Nicki Minaj is set to star in The Other Woman alongside Cameron Diaz. It’s the Young Money Cash Money Billionaire MC’s first acting credit. Last Thursday, she was spotted leaving her trailer dressed in a black robe on the NYC set of the film.
The Other Woman is being helmed by Nick Cassavetes (Alpha Dog and Mac Miller’s favorite flick, The Notebook) and also co-stars “Game Of Thrones” star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and supermodel Kate Upton. The movie is about a woman (Diaz) who discovers she’s “the other woman” in her relationship with her boyfriend, so she hits up the the guy’s wife for murderous revenge. Minaj plays Diaz’s opinionated assistant who apparently shares Nicki’s love for switching up hairstyles.
Declaring that acting is her “first love,” Nicki hinted at working on a movie last month. “I may be working on something right now. I can’t really say too much about it, but I definitely have the acting bug. That was my first love, so you just never know,” she said.
Later, Nicki finally took to Twitter to confirm: “2nd day of shooting #TheOtherWoman in NYC,” she tweeted, “Got a surprise for u tmrw.”
