While Sanaa Lathan is stuntin’ on the cover of Health Magazine, the actress also wants you to know AGAIN that she is not the one that bit Beyoncé, despite what Tiffany Haddish alluded to in a GQ interview last month.
The stunning “Nappily Ever After” star was clear: “I adore Beyoncé. I would never do anything malicious like that — to her, or to anyone. It’s so bizarre. It’s so crazy.”

You know, I was crying, I was laughing…”

“I’ve never been a skinny girl, and I don’t really aspire to be that. I’m a foodie; I love food. When I was a baby, they used to call me “Eat More Sanaa.” I was like, “Thanks…thanks a lot.”have to, yeah. But I’ve never been a skinny girl, and I don’t really aspire to be that.

On how she defines her’ joy:
