Moetivation on how he came up with the idea for the new web series Money & Violence: - "Money & Violence started off as an idea I had for a novel. At first it was something loosely based on past experiences — and experiences of people that I’ve known in the past… I woke up with the idea to turn it into a feature film. I attempted to film, but after shooting for about two months, I only had 18 minutes of footage. So I decided — from a marketing standpoint — it would be better if I turned it into a web series.”(Photo: Courtesy of Money & Violence)

Eve on the boundaries she had to accept since becoming a stepmother: - “Discipline is a big thing. If I maybe want to do something a little different, if one of the kids did something wrong, then he does. We grew up differently; my mom was very strict… So I have to kind of step back when it comes to things like that. That’s a hard one.”(Photo: Rommel Demano/Getty Images)

Tia Mowry-Hardrict on having a different sense of style from her twin sister, Tamera: - I think the older you get — whether you’re a twin or not — you tend to learn more about yourself. And you start to not care about what people think… I think we are definitely heading in two different paths in regards to fashion. She [Tamera] takes more of a conservative approach, but I’m more of a risk-taker.”(Photo: Kevin Winter/Getty Images for Paramount Pictures)

Now that it’s time to get married to a man who happens to play basketball and has done well for himself, I want to make it clear that I have in no way hitched my wagon to his star. I have my own wagon and star.”(Photo: Neilson Barnard/Getty Images for Architectural Digest)
