Multi talented star Queen Latifah has revealed how she is going to swim with sharks for charity. Queen Latifah will go in with the sharks, as she raises funds for the American Widows Project, which helps to support young women who have lost their husbands to war. Talking of the event, Queen Latifah admitted that she was excited but also very nervous.
Latifah told Conan O'Brien, "I'm thrill seeking for a good cause, it's going to be cool you know. We had this guest on who is part of this thing called the American Widows Project. They are young widows whose husbands were in the Gulf War or, like, Afghanistan, Iraq. So they wanted to kind of do something to honour the memory of their husbands and really just learn how to live life again, so they do adventure vacations."
She also joked that she intends to make sure that she has plenty of protection at her disposal, adding, "I plan on being heavily armed. That's my deal. I'm not getting in the water with those sharks. I'm not crazy you know. I'm adventurous but I'm not crazy. You know like Angelina's character in 'Tomb Raider' but I'm going to have a knife here and a knife here."
While Queen Latifah was more than happy to agree to swim with sharks for the American Widows Project, she did admit that she was glad that she did not have to do anything that included heights, as she suffers from serious vertigo. Good luck Queen Latifah and well done.
