Queen Latifah at premiere of 'Just Wright'If there were a hierarchy of modern renaissance women, Queen Latifah would be right at the top. Actor, rapper, singer, film and music producer, Cover Girl spokeswoman and plus-size role model, the former Dana Elaine Owens -- and Newark, New Jersey, native -- can seemingly do anything, and do it well.

Flavor Unit, the management/production company run by Latifah and partner Shakim Compere, has put out several films, most recently 2007's 'The Perfect Holiday.' Opening this weekend is their latest, 'Just Wright,' directed by Sanaa Hamri ('Something New,' 'The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2'). The rom-com stars Latifah as physical therapist Leslie Wright, a rabid New Jersey Nets fan who meets and treats the team's injured star, Scott McKnight (Common); though he's initially involved with Leslie's gorgeous roommate Morgan (Paula Patton), complications arise. The movie's romantic scenes alternate with rousing on-court sequences featuring several NBA players and real-life sports personalities.

Moviefone spoke to Latifah about the movie, her role models and dream projects.
