The NY Times Mag Gives "Precious" Its Cover

The New York Times Magazine cover story for this weekend is a look behind-the-scenes look at one of this fall’s most anticipated films, “Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire.” Highlights include quotes from: director Lee Daniels at the film’s Cannes premiere “‘I’m a little homo, I’m a little Euro and I’m a little ghetto.’ The crowd cheered.”; Monique on being cast in the film, ““I said to Lee, if you want me to play this demon, I am there.”; Mariah Carey on working for Lee, “He can strip you down, homely you out, and you trust him, because he’s after the truth. He can drive you crazy, but what interesting person doesn’t drive you crazy?” [Bryce J Renninger]
