‘Black Panther’ star Winston Duke recently sat down for an interview with Newsweek where he revealed that the love he received from Black women for his scene-stealing role as M’Baku has helped him gain self-confidence.
“At the end of the day, it’s been women from all over the world and all different cultures, but it was really started and driven by Black women and I wanna thank them for that,” says.
“I have not always been in a position to think that the things that made me who I am have always been positive. My height and my size have also made me look like an aggressor without trying.
And to now be in a space where they’re saying that’s what makes me beautiful and that’s what makes me disarming, that’s really humbling and it feels really good.”
