Actress Tracee Ellis Ross Reveals Why She Thought Twice On Her "Blackish" Role 
BHR Hollywood Reports................Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson stand today as one of the most dynamic pairs in primetime TV, and their on-screen chemistry appears completely natural.

However, it didn't always used to be that way. Ross explained in an interview that she wasn't much of a fan of her now on-screen husband in the recent-ish past.

Ellis Ross told reports, “I did not like Anthony,” she said. “I had worked with him in the past. I thought he was an a**hole.

 If you know Anthony, he has a gruff exterior, and he does not have an inner-governor, and Anthony says stuff that is not that appropriate all the time.

 Like, everybody knows it’s part of why he’s funny, it’s part of the ace in his deck, but it’s also, like, ‘Oh, my God.’ And if you don’t know him, it can come across rudely.”

But it wasn’t just because he was talking crazy. She said that the two had a couple of interactions that rubbed her the wrong way.

“He said some things to me in the past that I did not like, and I didn’t like him. But I knew Kenya [Barris] and I knew all the other people involved, and I was like, ‘I will go in.'”

But shortly after she walked on to set, she realized that things were going to be alright.

“From the moment I walked in to that audition, I was like, ‘Oh, there’s magic here. Like, magic. I will tell you, I was wrong — or not that ‘I was wrong,’ but I have a different experience of him now. He is one of my absolutely favorite people. I love working with that man so much.”
