Video Host/Actress La La Anthony responds to ‘Power’ fans who say she can’t act
 

 
La La Anthony isn’t bothered by naysayers who’ve called her out for her lack of technique as an actress.

“I think you got to be worried when people aren’t talking,” she said on “The Breakfast Club” on Thursday. “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 added, “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.”


Anthony also reminded the masses that she brings more to the table than the average Jane.

“I also bring a following with me,” the 38-year-old said. “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.”

The final season of “Power” airs Sundays at 8 p.m. on Starz.

The ONLY good actors on the show are Ghost and Tasha. Period. Tommy is almost as bad and over the top as LaLa.

But she's (LaLa) is pretty new at this so you can't really hold her feet to the fire the way you would an experienced actress. With more practice, she will get better.

She definitely needs to change that attitude though. People on Twitter will flip the script on you in 24 hours if they get fake-angry about something you said or did. All that internet sh*t if fake to me.

Didn't mean to slap your post either. My fault.

i agree with u on Tasha, but Ghost to me is a wack actor, he just cant get the balance right in my opinion, when its time to be sad, he aint sad enough and vice versa

Joseph Sikora(Tommy) aint necessarily a bad actor, I think he's meant to be completely over the top. Same with Ghost. The show is basically a soap opera with other elements built in.

Lala is terrible though.

I like Power. I feel like one of the most important things to do in storytelling is to create memorable characters, even characters that you love to hate; I think Power really accomplished that.. cuz I really feel like smackin Tariq and Andre in real life.

It absolutely is a soap opera/crime drama. And it is over the top. But I'd be lying if I say I'm not entertained.

When it comes to who can act on Power there's not many. Ghost be k*lling it every episode. Tariq and Dre is good as well. Meanwhile Tommy, Tommy crew, Tasha, Tasha mama and that fake Rosie Perez acting are all suspect. Most of the deaths made sense but it's also hurt the show. Cause Julio, Angela, Lobos, Mike and Kanan were not only entertaining, but they acting skills helped the show tremendously. Especially Angela. Them getting a seasoned vet like Larenz Tate was smart but him and Ghost can't make up for all the bad acting on the show. But no matter what anyone says La La one of the worst actresses of all time and even she knows it which is why she brought up her millions of Instagram followers far as her acting skills. I honestly see why Melo constantly cheats on her. If her s*x game is anything like her acting game...Melo has no choice but to step out

She terrible. Ghost and Tommy are very good actors I think a lot of you are mistaking how they are written for their talent. With better material Ghost could get a few awards. They don't fu*k with black shows though. Only really good actors on the show are Dre, Ghost and Tommy. The rest are C level at best La la is D- level. Don't even ask me how...

She gets by for the show. The show has some strong points, acting isn't one of them. But a decent show that has mostly average actors means she fits in fine lol
