Mariah Carey As A Slave

Director Lee Daniels stripped away Mariah Carey’s diamonds and glamour for her latest role in The Butler.

The usually decadent and extravagant diva appears to be makeup free as she portrays Hattie Pearl, a field slave, in the upcoming film. Although the released photo may be turning heads, it’s not the first time we’ve seen Carey get into character. Daniels stripped off her makeup and added a faint mustache for her role in 2009’s Precious.

The Butler, starring Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, Terrence Howard and more, is based on the true story of Eugene Allen, who retired from the White House as head butler in 1986 after 34 years of service. It opens in theaters on August 16.

Note to director though. With that complexion, she probably would have been a house slave and not a field slave. Needless to say, Mariah should get an award just for looking the part. Job well done!
