8 MILE star Mekhi Phifer enjoys his movie characters dating women of
differing ethnicities - because it's a sign of the way the world is
Phifer, who is paired up with Dark Angel beauty Jessica Alba in their
upcoming flick HONEY, proudly places himself at the forefront of being paired
romantically with women from a wide range of backgrounds.
He says, "I consider myself to be like the UNITED COLOURS OF BENETTON when
it comes to dating. I think that we're getting to see more of those images on
screen - of different races together - which reflect what's going on in real
life. I think
it's a good thing."
Phifer currently appears in hit medical drama ER, in which his character
is teaming up with Asian-American actress Ming-Na.
He adds, "They're both new doctors who are really busy, so it wouldn't be
that out of the ordinary for two people who spend so much time together, and
also find each other attractive, to send up in bed at some point." 24/04/2003 09:46
