Sanaa Lathan Talks Working As A Maid

In a recent interview with Black Enterprise, Hollywood actress Sanaa Lathan revealed her very first job.

“I was a maid,” she said. “My grandmother had an older man friend that lived in the building with us, and I would go over and clean his apartment when I was 13-years-old. He would give me like $30.”

“I was trying to make that cash,” she continued. “I didn’t have a problem with it. I think that there’s no shame in making a living, and getting money by honest means. So I would just say, do what you have to do, but do it honestly. Go after your dream, but there’s nothing wrong with making money with a regular job.”

From cleaning dirty sheets to starring in movies alongside Denzel Washington and Queen Latifah, the 39-year-old actress has come a long way.

Lathan plays a maid in the new Broadway play, “By the Way, Meet Vera Stark.”

But if Sanaa Lathan was still a maid today, would you want her to clean your room?
