Jordin Sparks is such an inspiration! HollywoodLife.com spoke to Jordin about her exciting new movie, and she also spoke about her positive life philosophy.
Jordin Sparks is one of the greatest talents in Hollywood — she can sing, she can act and she’s an amazing role model to her fans. Despite her recent shocking split, Jordin, 24, was nothing but excited to chat all about her upcoming film, Left Behind, in which she plays a survivor. After chatting with her, it’s safe to say that life imitates art!
Jordin Sparks Stronger Than Ever, As She Stars In Her New Movie ‘Left Behind’
At just 24 years old, Jordin is one of the most inspirational celebrities we’ve ever chatted with. Even in the midst of her public breakup from Jason Derulo, 25, the singer and actress shared all about her new movie, as she was beaming with excitement.
Left Behind, based on the book of the same name, is an apocalyptic thriller in which millions of people suddenly vanish. Jordin plays one of the survivors — a mother who loses her child to the Rapture — and stars alongside Nicholas Cage who inspired her during filming.
“He took the role because he loved the family aspect of the movie,” Jordin told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY about Nicholas. “You never want to leave things unsaid. You never want to leave a conversation or go to bed angry. You never want to leave anything like that because tomorrow’s not promised, and things can change in the blink of an eye. It might not necessary be that, but anything can happen at any time so he really loved the family aspect, and I loved that part, as well.”
She adds that her inspiration in the film reminds her of an important life lesson not to hold grudges on those around you. “You’ve got to love the people while they’re here, and love your family and love your friends and don’t hold grudges and all that type of stuff,” Jordin said. “I just thought that was really poignant.”
Jordin Sparks: I’m Not Going To ‘Sit Down And Cry’
We’re so impressed with Jordin’s positive presence, especially right after her public breakup.
She also lives by her own unique life mantra, taught to her by her dad, a former NFL player.
“When things get tough, take a running back [for example] — if they’re running with the ball and they fumble the ball, they’re not going to take themselves out of the game and sit down and cry about it. They’re going to hold that ball tighter and they’re join to run harder than they ever have,” Jordan shares with HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “And that’s how I see things — I’m going to hold this ball tighter and I’m going to run so hard, you won’t even see me coming. That’s kind of how I look at things.”
Go, Jordin! Left Behind hits theaters Friday, Oct. 3.
