La La Anthony has responded to Power viewers who are claiming that she can’t act during a recent interview with The Breakfast Club.
“I think you got to be worried when people aren’t talking. My thing is that I’m doing it. So, if I couldn’t do it, then why am I doing it? If you can do it better, then why you not getting the jobs I’m getting? That’s how I look at it,” she shared.
She continued, “My thing is, I do it, I put my all into it. I didn’t start that way, so it’s been a different journey for me, but that doesn’t mean I can’t do it. And I think people just naturally want to hate because you started differently. ‘You’re not a real actor, you started on the radio.’ Alright, maybe I didn’t come into it like you, but I put the work in, and I continue to put the work in, so that doesn’t bother me.”
But fortunately, La La knows her worth, and she brings a lot more to the table than some:
“I also bring a following with me. I almost got 10 million followers on Instagram. People watch what I do. What’s the point of having these great shows if nobody’s watching them? You want people to watch. So, if you can do it better, you bring your 10 million followers and come do what I do.”
