It’s been 30 years since the Cosby Show debuted on our TV screens. Thirty years! Let that sink in for a minute. Now, as we all feel a little bit older, our favorite son, Malcolm Jamal Warner (Theo) is all grown up. He’s been doing a lot lately: movies, television series, etc. The actor, poet and musician still manages to keep his skin, hair and body healthy.
“I’m not a health nut,” Warner confesses. “But I’m very aware of what happens when I don’t watch what I eat and don’t work out. “The Tuskegee Airmen” and “Fool’s Gold” are perfect examples,ha! I love to eat and drink and as I’ve gotten older, I can most definitely see how my metabolism has slowed down so as a result, I am very conscious of what I put into my body. I do go through cycles though. I know the top of my range so I know when to pull it back, however, I’m noticing how much longer it takes to bring the body back to where I prefer.”
When asked about why he cut his dredlocs, Malcolm describes, “My ten and a half year journey was done. When I committed to letting my hair loc I said I’d do ten years and after ten and a half I was ready. My manager and agents told me that locs would limit me getting roles, which may or may have not been true, but I have three television series, four independent films, and a major studio film with them so my locs are well-documented. Everyone I knew who had cut theirs all stressed to me not to cut them until I was absolutely ready so as not to regret doing so. I took their advice and have no regrets at all. Live your life with no regrets.”
