Many know actress Kimberly Elise from some of her acclaimed roles in Set It Off, John Q, Diary of a Mad Black Woman, For Colored Girls and Almost Christmas. Her incredible smile and intense on-screen persona are just two characteristics she shares with her audience. The talented actress is turning 50 this year and loving every minute of it.

“This is an extra big year for me,” confesses Elise on her blog. “Not only because I turn 50 this month (yep, I do), but also because my family and I just moved out of our family home – the home we’ve shared for over 10 years!”

“And also because my youngest daughter will be graduating high school and heading off to college in just a couple months. My baby all grown up…(tears rolling).”

But she’s learned to take everything in stride and has done a lot of growth over the years.
