What's not to love about the pitbull in a skirt? Eve Jihan Jeffers is Philadelphia's own home girl who's translated her rhymes and edgy style into Hollywood cache. Grabbing her own self-titled television show and getting the opportunity to make out with Michael Ealy when she played Terri in Ice Cube's "Barbershop," Eve's had it pretty good. As we gear up to see Eve-y Eve at the ESSENCE Music Festival on July 6-8, let's take a look back at her journey.
Playing Terri in Ice Cube’s 2002 film Barbershop and 2004’s Barbershop 2: Back In Business" which co-starred Cedric The Entertainer and Michael Ealy, this series was also Eve’s first on-screen kiss as an actor. And it was with Michael Ealy. Don’t you feel bad her? Neither do we.
“I was so nervous. I told him, I was like, ‘Oh my God, it’s my first onscreen kiss!’ He said, ‘What are you nervous for?’,” Eve told About.com. “I’m like, ‘Because it’s my first. It has to look good.’ I was very nervous.”
