Nicki Minaj to Star With Cameron Diaz in ‘The Other Woman’
THR reports that hip hop and pop starlet Nick Minaj has her sights set on acting, and is making her big screen debut in ‘The Other Woman.’ The film stars Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (‘Game of Thrones‘), and model Kate Upton.
Directed by Nick Cassavetes, the film follows the story of a woman (Diaz), who discovers that she is the “other woman” in an affair she’s having with a man (Waldau). She then decides to buddy up with the wife (Mann) to exact revenge on the cheating jerk. Upton will play a second mistress who joins in on the mayhem.
As for Minaj, her part isn’t huge, but it’s definitely substantial: she’ll be playing the sassy assistant to Diaz, who works at a law firm and has been married three times, so her character knows a thing or two (or three) about terrible men.
Minaj is no stranger to putting on a show — some might argue that her carefully cultivated persona is an act all its own, with the way she slips in and out of different accents, sometimes within the same breath.
