Meagan Good Reflects on Her Journey in Hollywood and Personal Growth in ‘Club Shay Shay’ Interview

The “Divorce in the Black” star opened up about her three-decades-long career and her decision to stand by Jonathan Majors.

Meagan Good recently sat down with Shannon Sharpe on “Club Shay Shay” for an intimate and revealing conversation. During the interview, the actress opened up about various aspects of her life and career, shedding light on her journey in Hollywood and her personal experiences.

Good shared that Tyler Perry was a pivotal figure in her career, being the first to pay her a fair wage in the entertainment industry. She also recounted a troubling incident from her early days on a Nickelodeon show, where a fight escalated into a dangerous situation. This event made her reevaluate her actions and seek a path of peace.

Reflecting on her childhood, Good discussed the racism she faced in school and the unfair treatment by some of her teachers. Celebrating three decades in Hollywood, she expressed immense gratitude for her journey and hoped for many more successful years. She highlighted the importance of love and support, sharing stories about her experiences as a young Black actress navigating a predominantly white industry.

Good also revealed a moment of doubt in her career when intense pressures on set and a difficult experience with a director almost led her to reconsider acting. This challenging period ultimately strengthened her resolve, and she consciously focused more on films to explore diverse characters and broaden her artistic horizons.

In addition to her professional journey, Good opened up about her romantic relationship with Jonathan Majors. In a recent interview on “Today With Hoda and Jenna,” she addressed concerns from friends about her relationship. She emphasized the importance of trusting her intuition and staying true to herself. "One thing I know is that I can always look in the mirror when I trust my spirit, when I trust God, when I ask God, and when I move to the beat of my own drum... I can always look and say, 'Okay, I'm proud of that,’” she said. “No matter whatever happens, I have peace in my heart and harmony in my heart."

Good further explained her approach to life, stating, “I take everyone I love's opinion into account, but at the end of the day, I'm the one who has to live my life. I want to be responsible for the choices I make and want to live the life that I want to live."

Good and Majors were photographed together in May 2023, sparking dating rumors. The speculation was further fueled when Good was seen walking with Majors at his appearance at Manhattan Criminal Court a month later.
