Woman Crush Wednesday: Karrueche Tran
Our Woman Crush Wednesday, Karrueche Tran, has been keeping a fairly low profile. Well, at least until last weekend that is. Sunday (11 June) saw the TNT premiere of her latest TV venture Claws. Karrueche plays a nail technician called Virginia who, along with four of her colleagues, is dragged into the world of organised crime. The comedy-drama appeared to be a big hit on social media especially amongst her followers. Which, I’m sure had nothing to do with the fact that Karrueche gets her kit off in the first episode!
Well, we’re all for being body confident and even if she does happen to have any body hang ups, she’s clearly on top of them. And, we’re pretty sure that the countless modelling gigs she clocked up after gaining notoriety as Chris Brown’s ex-girlfriend may have helped. Regardless, the former personal shopper has been steadily building up her acting credits since finally splitting with Brown; and has spoken at length about her ambitions to build a credible acting career. This was given a boost when she received a nomination for ‘Best Supporting Actress — Drama’ two years in a row at the Indie Series Awards for her performance in the Emmy award-winning web series The Bay…
Why we love her
Least likely to…release a tell-all book. Speaking to Australian radio station KIIS she says, “What’s the point of doing that, there’s no need to exploit certain areas of my life or anything and that’s just negative energy and I’m not trying to bring that into my zone…”
Impress her with…loyalty. The budding actress values friienedship highly. Speaking to Rollingout.com she revealed, “I have friends that I have had since middle school, which is great because you have all of these years of growing together and going through things..Rven with Christina [Milian], we recently became best friends over the past four or five years but the way we bonded is we are two girls who identify with one another; we’ve been through the same situations and we like to have fun. I respect that and I care about that, especially in this industry where there is so much phoniness out there. I cherish having genuine friendships.”
Mention…pink fur. Don’t worry I’m not going to give away any spoilers to the first episode of Claws. But, there’s a pretty remarkable scene featuring perspex heels, a full length pink fur and a gold gun. Let’s just saw it’s a definite fashion moment! I can see the memes already…
And another thing….Tran loves food so doesn’t diet. However, she works out at least three times a week with a personal trainer.
