“Take your time.”
Words of wisdom: “I’m a person who’s made my mistakes, and I’ve learned from them,” says the comedian, 32. “I recently went through a divorce, and it makes me think about how can I improve and become a better man so that when I do decide to get married again, I do better. Find a positive in those negatives. As soon as it’s over, reevaluate you and the mistakes you made. Because of it, me and my ex-wife are great friends now. We have a job to do, and it’s raising two beautiful children. When you mature, you understand what’s important — it’s about life and making the best of it.” Should his character heed
them? That might have helped, sure, but when we first meet motormouth, relationship-hating Cedric, his divorce from his wife can’t come fast enough — and he tries to persuade all of his friends to take his stance. But he is helped in the end by thinking a little less like a man and instead connecting with his true feelings.
