Lance Gross On Life, Love & Beautiful Black Skin
Actor, model and photographer Lance Gross has had quite a great last couple of years. He had his first child, got married to his longtime girlfriend, just welcomed his second child, a son, and was praised for his stunning photography. All in all, Lance said that this is a time where he couldn’t be happier.
The actor has taken Hollywood by storm in just a few short years. From being seen on the small screen, in Tyler Perry’s “House of Payne” or on the big screen in “Our Family Wedding” and “Tyler Perry’s Temptation.” The model-turned-actor also stays wasn’t always comfortable in his skin and even made fun of for it. But his undeniably great smile and skin are what he takes pride in daily.

Yet it’s something he just hasn’t found yet. “I’ve learned our generation isn’t the same. We don’t think the same and people aren’t into working on themselves”. But although he recognizes the differences in a world that seems to not be conducive to a love that lasts forever, Lance stresses the qualities in himself that make him an ideal mate. “If I’m in love with you, I’m in love with you. You don’t have to worry about anything”, he says, “If you’re mine, I’m yours. I’ll give you everything that you need”.
Speaking about his wife Rebecca Jefferson, he says. “She was my best friend first. I can sit alone in silence with her and have the time of my life, we’re good. I love when a woman is…
