Taryn Manning stopped by VH1’s Big Morning Buzz Live hosted by Nick Lachey on Tuesday morning (April 21) in New York City.
The Orange Is The New Black star is in town to promote her new Lifetime movie, “Cleveland Abduction.” In her interview, the 36-year-old actress talks with Nick about how she got the role in Hustle & Flow and how Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson are her favorite. During What’s Trending, Nick confesses how a gift from a fan made him insecure about his skin.
Later in the show the alternative country musician, Rhett Miller performed his new single “Most In The Summertime.”
Check out some of the highlights from today’s show below!
Taryn on getting cast in Hustle & Flow: “There was another actress, not to say any names, but there was an offer before me. You know movies get pushed and independent films take a while to get financed and by the time it came around she was getting married. So I got the old ‘hand-me-down’. That’s what I call it. But I say ‘one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.’”
Nick on what he is insecure about: “I’ll never forget when 98 Degrees first started touring, I didn’t have great skin. Especially when you’re on the road and traveling, I’d break out all the time. And this fan in Asia came up to me and she’s like ‘Here, for you!’ and I said ‘Oh, thank you!’ because Asian fans tend to give you a lot of gifts…it’s very very sweet. I said ‘Oh, what is this?’ she said ‘It’s medicine for your skin.” So I actually had to go on Accutane.”
