The comedian posted the snap on the birthdate he shares with his late mother, and fans were quick to offer words of comfort. “so very sorry for the loss of this extraordinary matriarch. Im sending my love prayers and sympathy to you and the family,” one follower commented, while another wrote, “Oh no. I’m sorry to hear this Marlon. Sending so much love to you brother.”
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Marlon was filming the Aretha Franklin biopic Respect with Jennifer Hudson, 38, and he revealed just how impressed he was with Jennifer’s singing voice. “That voice. Yo, like that voice? It’s weird. It actually gave me a woody,” Marlon admitted to a TMZ photog in a video uploaded on Nov. 13. Yes, you read that correctly. Jennifer’s voice alone got Marlon…well, stimulated.
That’s not all Marlon had to say about his co-star, whose soul he described as “warm” and “sweet.” Earlier in the conversation, the reporter asked Marlon what was it like to kiss the beautiful singing sensation. “Amazing. Have you ever kissed an angel? I did,” Marlon declared, and even dived into specifics. “Her breath was amazingly fresh, whole lips like pillows. It felt like I was kissing that cloud,” the comedian continued. He event went so far as to rank the smooch as one of the “top three kisses” of his lifetime! However, he didn’t “want to let her know how good the kiss was” — we think it’s too late for that.
