Newton Impressed With Perry's Flower Gifts

THANDIE NEWTON was impressed with all the small things on the set of TYLER PERRY's new movie FOR COLORED GIRLS - like the way the director delivered fresh flowers to her trailer every morning.
The British actress admits it was a pleasure working with Perry and she hopes she gets the chance to collaborate with the moviemaker again - because he really looks after his cast.
She tells WENN, "We had fresh cut flowers in our trailer every day that we worked. I used to take them home and then new ones would automatically arrive! It was amazing.
"It's a dainty, small-in-the-scheme-of-things touch but, my goodness, you felt special and loved, appreciated and honoured. When you got on the set you just gave it your all because you felt appreciated.
"I sensed in his behaviour that he was saying to each of us, 'Teach me about you,' and that is sophisticated and very courageous to allow us to show him."
