Essence Atkins: “It’s Not Necessarily That They Want To See Kim Kardashian In a Movie. They Want To See Her In a Bikini.”

Tell them why you mad …

Actress Essence Atkins had a lot to say about Tyler Perry’s recent casting decision for his film “Temptation“.  Ms. Atkins doesn’t feel casting Kim Kardashian in the film was a smart move. In fact she would consider it an epic fail:

“I found it interesting that Tyler did that with Temptation, hiring Kim Kardashian because she has 16 million Twitter followers, which would seem like a brilliant marketing plan [...] He has one of the biggest Twitter personalities out there in his movies, and he had one of the worst box office weekends [...] It’s not a failure, but it did worse than his movies usually do just based on him [...] I thought that was an interesting finding. Your experiment didn’t work. [...] People want to see good stories. It’s not necessarily that they want to see Kim Kardashian in a movie. They want to see her in a bikini. They want to see her with Kanye [West]. They want to see her on her show talking about her life with her sisters, but that doesn’t mean that they want to see her in a movie [...] The fact that people want to see their lives and the volatility of that…. I don’t think that it translates at all.”
