Tyler Perry interview


Winfrey interviews Tyler Perry and questions him on Whitney Houston, and his career.

I felt a huge responsibility for her for Whitney herself. I felt a tremendous responsibility from the first day we sat down in that restaurant and had a conversation where she was so open with me. I stood with them the Houston family. Whatever they needed, they would call and say this and this is going on or that’s going on. Or I would talk to her sometimes and she would just be, you know out of it, but trying to be together.

Tyler Perry interview


Seacrest interviews Perry during On Air With Ryan Seacrest asks him if giving up control of Alex Cross.

I started writing, because after the first couple of days I realized this is going to be very difficult for me to just sit here. What was easy for me, is to let go. Because Rob (Cohen) had a clear direction and anytime somebody knows where they’re going, I don’t mind following at all.

O Magazine Interview


Perry discusses the first time he portrayed the role of Madea on stage:

There was a sold-out house at the Regal Theater in Chicago, and five minutes before the show, I put on the costume and stood at the mirror for the first time. I’m saying, Damn, are you really going to do this? Then the show started and I had no choice—they pushed me out onstage. Madea had a cane and she didn’t talk very loud and her voice was much deeper and she sat in one spot the whole time. But after a while, I finally had to move. And when I moved there was laughter.
