Empire‘s own Jussie Smollett is now the new face of BLEU Magazine‘s latest cover titled The Man In The Mirror!
Garnering epic success from the FOX hit series, the budding actor/artist has a story to tell, and is the pinnacle of the LGBT Community — standing ground in what he believes in, not caring what anyone else thinks.
“I feel really, really blessed. I thank God so much that I’m in this position right now.”
In the issue, Jussie talks about working with the cast of ‘Empire,’ family, playing an openly-gay character which mirrors his life, living out his dreams, his appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and so much more.
Smollett on his journey to Hollywood:
“That was always something super important to me and was something instilled in me by my mother–to be a hard working man, a hard working human being.”
