We’ve all heard and seen comments over Meagan Good’s wardrobe and roles. “Ain’t she a preacher’s wife?” “That is NOT how a First Lady dresses!” “Why is she in this movie? She should be doing gospel films!” Yup, Meagan’s heard them all and now she’s fighting back and correcting misconceptions.
The month, the “Think Like A Man Too” star is covering Rolling Out Magazine, and inside, the gorgeous actress tackles the “she dresses too sexy for preacher’s wife” controversy. She says that while everyone has a different definition for “appropriate”, she feels like there’s nothing wrong with being sexy since God created women to be beautiful and to be amazing.
She also opens up about her marriage to her husband DeVon Franklin and how his acceptance of her made her a lot less rebellious. The two just celebrated their second anniversary earlier this month.
His acceptance of me has allowed me to grow in areas where I was struggling in the past because I felt so unaccepted,” she explains further. “I was angry, and that anger created a rebellious spirit that didn’t really want to change. Because it needed to be accepted first, before it could even consider being better. Marriage has made me better, assured me, made me happier; I’m way more at peace. I feel like I’m consistently growing into a better person and I feel like I can help him grow into a better person. He sees all the positive things in me that I felt like a lot of other people didn’t see — I always felt very judged. I always felt like people were coming for me. He was the first person, outside of my sister or mother, who said ‘I see you. I see who you really are.’
