Actress Danielle Brooks is going viral - for releasing a pic of her wearing lingerie. And the pics showed the ample assets of the 200+ pound actress.
Each year, beauty is re-defined in Hollywood. Recently more and more big women have been celebrated for their beautiful face - and their curvy bodies.
Danielle is best known for her role as Tasha "Taystee" Jefferson on the Netflix original series Orange Is the New Black. She's also got serious acting chops, she was nominated for a Tony Award for her portrayal of Sofia in the 2015 Broadway production of The Color Purple.
According to an interview in the Hollywood Reporter with Danielle:
Taystee Jefferson (played by Danielle Brooks) has never given up on the fight. Despite the odds being against her, the breakout Litchfield inmate has managed to stand up for what she believes in, and find reasons to smile along the way. But after losing her best friend Poussey Washington (Samira Wiley) in season four, only to fumble the riot negotiations that leave a target on her back in season five, the sixth season begins without so much as a glimmer of hope.
"When season six opens, Taystee is trying to figure out how to fight for herself when she doesn’t feel worthy or supported enough," Brooks tells The Hollywood Reporter about the beginning of a devastating arc for the character she has embodied for six years. After being identified as the face of the season-five riot, Taystee is betrayed by one of her own and faces trial for the second-degree murder of corrections officer Desi Piscatella (Brad William Henke), who was killed by an officer in the riot.
