Here’s a Look at Mariah Carey in Lee Daniels’ ‘The Butler’

Here's a Look at Mariah Carey in Lee Daniels' 'The Butler'

They say “A picture is worth a thousand words.”  

Here’s an image of Mariah Carey in Lee Daniel’s upcoming drama The Butler, a film which will most likely have a polarizing effect with audiences. 

Carey plays a brief role as young Cecil Gaines’ mother, who, along with Gaines’ father, is a sharecropper. 

She’s in the opening scene only – which is quite dramatic by the way – and depending on who you ask, that might be a good thing. 

The Butler opens in theaters later this year, on August 16.
