In Tyler Perry’s latest flick, “Temptation,” Kim Kardashian flexes her comedic timing in the role of a sexy millionaire matchmaker who spits sassy one-liners. But if fans of her E! shows think the reality starlet might be in over her head on the big screen, co-star Robbie Jones tells MTV News that’s definitely not the case.
“She’s a great person and a wonderful personality,” said Jones, who plays a millionaire bachelor looking for love in the movie. “She was amazing and I think a lot of people were really surprised with her work because she really held her own and she really brought it home. And she was really funny and I think she did a fantastic job.”
While Kanye West’s lady love may have had her doubters when news first broke of her casting last year, director Perry has also defended his decision to add her to the film.
“I believe that my films speak from the inside out,” Perry said in a statement on his website in December. “Why wouldn’t Kim Kardashian be invited into a film about faith, forgiveness and the healing power of God? What is wrong with that?”
With “Temptation” in theaters, next up for Kardashian is a new season of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” which kicks off in June and, of course, a baby with Kanye reportedly due in July . And co-star Jones had a message for the soon-to-be mama, teasing, “Be a good mom, Kim!”
