Lauren London and her beau, Nipsey Hussle trended for most of the day on Thursday after their GQ interview hit the internet.

But Lauren revealed something that many of us did not know. That she was almost cast to play the Faith Evan, the wife of deceased rapper, Notorious B.I.G. in the 2009 movie, 'Notorious.'

“I auditioned to be Faith Evans in Notorious,” Lauren recalled to GQ. “I talked to Faith, Puff, everybody. It just came down that the director didn't believe me as Faith.” 

The director went for the Golden Globe-nominated actress, Antonique Smith instead.

The couple also revealed that she was chosen to star in the FX TV series, 'Snowfall':

"Lauren was handpicked by John Singleton to do Snowfall. She read, got the part, shot the pilot...did stunts...this was her dream role,” Nipsey said. “And then she got pregnant with our son. That was a really hard decision for her to make.”

“It was the toughest decision of my career by far,” Lauren said. 

“I didn't put any pressure on her for whatever decision she wanted to make,” Nipsey said. “I learned then that what she believes in, she really believes in.”

“Do I choose my soul or myself?” Lauren said. “I went with my soul.”
