Gabby Union, Thandie Newton, & More Hit Tyler Perry's GOOD DEEDS Hollywood Premiere

The cast of Good Deeds hit the red carpet at Wolfgang Puck's 24 at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in L.A. last night for their big Hollywood premiere.

 

We've got pics of Gabby Union, Thandie Newton, and more looking fab inside...

 

Gabrielle Union looked fabulous in her mauve floor length gown by ISSA for her big premiere last night. 

 

She hit the carpet with director/creator Tyler Perry.

The cast posed it up with a motorbike on the carpet.

Tyler posed it up with co-star Rebecca Romijn.

 

Co-star Thandie Newton rocked a gold lace Temperly London Pre-Fall 2012 cocktail dress and her gold trimmed Jimmy Choo ‘Koko’ heels:

The hair is unflattering and the dress does nothing for her.  Thandie usually rocks and pulls off super chic looks so not sure what's going on here.

She chatted up the youngest co-star, actress Jordenn Thompson.

Her co-star Jamie Kennedy posed it up with her.

How cute is she!

 

Barry Bonds hit the carpet with his daughter Aisha.


Beverly Johnson flaunted her fabness with her daughter Anansa.

So Flo Rida decided to hit the carpet with Tyler.  We'll keep our questions to ourselves.

Michael Jai White, who stars in Tyler's TBS show "For Better or Worse," hit the carpet with his co-star, actress KiKi Haynes.  Michael reportedly got a divorce from his OBGYN wife of 5 years last year by the way.

Why Did I Get Married? actress Sharon Leal came out to support.

And so did Rochelle Aytes.

And co-star Brian White snapped pics with his wife, Paula, and co-star Jordenn.

Good Deeds
hits theaters February 24th.

Brian need to stay off

Brian need to stay off bleaching cream, and change those shoes. This is what other girls won't tell you. They just keep a fake smile on, tell you look great while you make a fool of yourself. I'm not hating on him, I agree with what he said about BW. He just doesn't look right in these pics.

Some people are sooo daft

Some people are sooo daft <----(Stupid), Tyler Perry did AN AMAZING JOB GOD BLESS HIM, would y'all have been happy if Whitney Houston, flew in a cargo hole via american airlines, delta airlines, e.t.c. Didnt the party still go on that night, yes people had to eat and drink, dresses hair and makeup were paid for--hence sponsored party had to goooo onnn.... so think idiot's below-- A wealthy Industry Black man did something unexpected that deserves PRAISE! THERES AN EPIDEMIC WITH AFRICAN AMERICANS **** LACK OF EDUCATION******
Look at you 's picture

Is that you Gabrielle Union?

Is that you Gabrielle Union? This sounds like something she would say. Let the party go on so the paps can take my picture like you said on Inside Edition! This party had some real stars there but D list people were allowed in as well. I can't believe how vain these people are. Four floors down lie Ms Houston's Dead body. What a bunch of REJECTS! At least Chaka said on CNN she decided not to go after she heard the news. It's good to see some people still have a conscience. SMH. TP also might have given his plane for WH body out of guilt as well. He probably shund Whitney because he seemed to thought getting JJ in his movies would put more butts in the seats at the movies but colored girls was a flop. Now TD Jakes is the one w/ the last movie we will ever see Ms Houston in. TD Jakes is the one w/ the must see movie. He has his hands on a piece of history. Our Eternal Love for you Whitney. God has taken you to a better place now.

I totally understand how you

I totally understand how you and Chaka feel however, some people just grieve differently. It’s not so much about the party going on but about how as the party did “go on” they took that time to honor her. If you attended that event by yourself would you have rather stay in the hotel and watched the news until it was time to go home? Or would you get dressed go to the event and grieve along with the people you know that knew her well?

I'm not a Gabby fan, but she

I'm not a Gabby fan, but she is flawless here! Thandie looks nice too and the little co-star is a cutie. BRIAN WHITE has no major fan base, and the mere fact that he is comfortable in his ignorance and disrespect for Black women is while his ass will always be a CO-STAR! His opinions and disrespect are going to keep him on the side-lines of movies and raking in minor bucks. He's basic. And what he says and tweets and verbalizes will keep him as a D-LIST celebrity. There is power in the tongue. It can harm you or help you.

@SouthernBelle You are sooo

@SouthernBelle You are sooo right. I am not a Gabby fan either. I crindged when I saw her in this movie. She is sooo phony and CAN'T ACT to save her life. This girl is sooo hungry to be A list that she always is trying to get attention from the media. My sister told me everyone lit her up on her on Lipstick about her No Body Asked Your comment defending Clive Davis on his decision to keep his Pre-Grammy Bash going while his #1 Artist lay dead 4 floors below and while his #1 Artist daughter was being RUSHED to the hospital! SHUT THE HELL UP GABBY YOU ARE A NONE-ACTING ATTENTION SEEKING WHORE! THAT DWAYNE GUY WILL NEVER MARRY YOU! HOW ABOUT THE FACT THAT YOU ARE FRIENDS W/ SANAA LATHAN AND IS SHARING THE BIG SCREEN W/ THANDIE NEWTON. WHY NOT GET ON YOUR HANDS AND KNEES AND BEG THE BOTH OF THEM TO GIVE YOU SOME ACTING LESSONS. THEY ACT CIRCLES AROUND YOU. YOU SUCK AT ACTING MY 5 YR NEWPHEW COULD DO A BETTER JOB THAN YOU CAN DO. IT'S LIKE YOU ARE JUST READING THOSE LINES W/ NO TYPE OF BELIEVABLE ACTING GOING ON. That boyfriend basketball player is using you. Why buy the cow when the milk is free! You are 10yrs his senior he will marry someone much younger than you. YOU WILL NEVER BE AN A LIST ACTRESS. You can't teach an old dog new tricks. SHUT YOU MOUTH UP ABOUT THAT PARTY! NOBODY ASKED YOU. I NEVER LIKED YOU BUT NOW YOU ARE A #1 ASSHOLE DEFENDING THAT JEW CLIVE DAVIS! WHITNEY WAS MY FAV SINGER! I HATE TO MENTION THIS BUT YOU MADE ME SAY IT! YOU EVEN TALKED ABOUT BEING RAPED TO GET ON THE THAN OPRAH WINFREY SHOW. THAT'S HOW HUNGRY YOU ARE. JUST LIKE BEING A GOOD SINGER IS A GIFT. BEING A GOOD ACTOR IS ALSO A GIFT. YOU WILL NEVER BE AS GOOD AS SANAA OR THANDIE. YOU EITHER HAVE IT OR YOU DON'T! KEEP WATCHING AS PAULA PATTON AND OTHER PEOPLE KEEP GETTING THE BETTER ROLES. TOM CRUISE WOULD HAVE NEVER PUT YOU IN MISSION IN POSSIBLE. THAT NAOMI GIRL FROM THE UK WILL BE IN THE NEW BOND MOVIE. YOU WILL NEVER GET THE GOOD ROLES BECAUSE YOU ARE A "Z" LIST ACTOR AND ACT THE SAME WAY IN EVERYTHING YOU PLAY IN. STAY IN YOUR "D" LANE YOU HUNGRY BLAH LOOKING B"! TO ANYONE WHO WILL SAY I'M A HATER THIS GIRL IS NOT EVEN ON MY RADAR. I HAVE BEEN TOLD ALL MY LIFE THAT i LOOK LIKE STACEY DASH. I JUST SAY THANKS AND ACCEPT PEOPLES I GUESS COMPLIMENT?

@MiistaMunk Not bitter broken

@MiistaMunk Not bitter broken hearted over my fav singer's death. Since I was a child I have loved and adored Whitney Houston. This stupid Gabby girl ran over to the camera's defending Clive Davis Party. I mean she ran over to the camera's saying "We made a decision to continue the party. She was acting like she was on Clive Davis staff or something. Who is Z list attention seeking Gabby flunky to say we decided to keep partying after Whitney lie DEAD on the 4th floor. She ran over to the cameras being her cheeseball self just to get on Inside Edition. I really think z list people like her are sooo hungry for attention that they will do or say anything to have the spot light. I don't even watch inside edition I happen to see her stupid cheesball face defending Clive Davis. I also like really good actors. Her very presence annoys me and the fact that she sucks at acting annoys me even more. It's not a jealous or bitter thing because I like other good beautiful talented actors like: Sanaa L Thandie N and Kerri W. I just can't stomach phony none-acting media whores like Gabby U! People should learn to shut their mouths. People like her will never ever have a fan base like Whitney Houston she will never know the feeling of being loved my millions of fans. This is why people like her seek attention so badly.

Wow...I didn't know that

Wow...I didn't know that about Whitney. Hmm hate say it, I like TP, but agree this is suspect! He does seem somewhat narcissistic. I thought that when he came out being abused when he released For Colored Girls. But thought, nah...then he went on Oprah, with the story right before the movie came out. Now this right before "Good Deeds". I do like he is loyal to black actors however. I will probably still see it, I don't boycott just because some of the cast are shady LOL, otherwise I may not see anything.

Thandie looks like The

Thandie looks like The African Royalty she comes from on her mom side. I love love The Beautiful Thandie Newton. I wish Gabby could act on Thandie's level of acting but at least she's cute. I guess you can't have it all. Brian White needs to stop BLEACHING AND USING THE WHITE GEISHA GIRL MAKE-UP POWDER . Brian White and Lil Kim need to stop. The skin bleaching looks sooo unnatural. Ladies stop wasting your time commenting on Brian White. He is such a Z list actor. Look on his IMDB there is nothing good for him or Taye Diggs. Gooood! Now Idris Elb, Chiwetel Ejiofar and Anthony Mackie have a long list of movies scheduled to hit the big screen because they are Really good A list actors. Z list people tend to never come up. The little girl looks a little like Thandie's real daughter Nico both are cute kids! Hope this movie does well. *Note to Tyler Perry next time don't put your Berenstein Bear looking self in the movie. I would have loved to have seen good A list actors that can Really act in your role like: Micheal Ealy or Idris Elba. You would have had a bigger turn out for sure. More women and Gays men would have came. For example that movie Conan w/ Jason Momoa. I saw more woman and gay guys in there all to look at Lisa Bonet's man Jason Momoa. If i go to this movie it will be to see Thandie Newton a world class A actress!

I will be supporting Good

I will be supporting Good Deeds and cant wait for its premier. Say what you want BUT Tyler is doing his thing and is putting black actors to work. I find it interesting that the demands and pressures that are placed on him by black people arent placed on other black director's (same with Barack Obama-why don't people come down on Jesse Jackson and Tavis Smiley or even every black man who also stands on the shoulder's of Dr. King and demand that they do more? But back to Tyler, I think it has less to do with content and more to do with the scale/number of people he reaches. Secondly, white America produces a number of movies-MANY of which are very very very poor in content and even though a review may point it out there isn't an overwhelming sense of hatred directed at a particular person-and even if they had sentiments of discord they remain quiet about it, allowing themselves to remain and appear unified, strong, while those in the business continue to make $$$. Maybe we should pause with the hatred and take heed (if the goal is to collectively get better as a group of people). In regards to T.P's films they are postive, don't tell me that those stories do not carry an element of truth in them and there are alot of older black women/black women who are like Madea in the black community. Anyway, I must add that Brian White IS FINE AS I DON'T KNOW WHAT! And im soooooooo glad he said what he said. Peace n love.

Maybe because im not a self

Maybe because im not a self hating man. I am a black/african woman. Um I don't act like nene leakes (other than her name, i have no idea who she is-never watched the show-but i know what it is thats being referred to) but alot (and not all) but alot of black women i see do act in a certain way that is far less than inappropriate. Brian White didn't talk about black women-he made a point and if he was grossly generalizing than his female family members would be in that category (and i think its safe to assume that they don't behave in such a manner). Those who accuse people who offer truth as helf hating are the wons who really hate themselves. Real love doesn't excuse bad behavior and the behavior of alot (way too many) black women and men (young and old needs to be corrected) and confronting it and calling it for what it is is the first step. Being in plays that center on black relationships means nothing; he's an actor, that's his job. Secondly, from the plays ive seen-the main female character is potrayed in a postive light. So I don't get what your saying.

So Brian White made a comment

So Brian White made a comment that made black women look at the truth about themselves? And Tyler Perry a Christian man offered (without receiving any pay from Whitney's family, her record label or Clive Davis) to fly out another Christian woman's beloved daughter so that maybe her family wouldn't have to deal with the hoopla and pressures (including financial) of what that whole process could entail. For this, you choose to "stay home" and not support Good Deeds or acknowledge this great act of kindness to a family in need? Right!

I've lost respect for Brian

I've lost respect for Brian White after his black women and stereotypes comment. He underestimated his fan base and here you see him on the red carpet with his non-black wife which is so telling. I get tired of self-hating, insecure black men like Brian and their negative comments about black women. They are steadily degrading us when they should be standing up for and protecting black womanhood.

Brian told the truth about you black women, he said what alot of black men are thinking!!!!!!And i respect that!! Fuck black womanhood/ feminism that shit destroyed the black community!!!! Martin luther king god bless his soul, he said we should be about BROTHAHOOD meaning we need to be in charge , WE SHOULD TAKE OVER THE HOUSEHOLDS!!!! Black women and their feminist agenda don't want that though.

@LetsGetit What I find

@LetsGetit What I find interesting is how you don't own up to any responsibility/accountability that Black men have to do. Some black women have to watch their attitude and change their mindset on a lot of things. And, there are a lot of agendas the society in general is pushing and we fall for those agenda the most. I guess, it's lack of education and the fact that we are more gullible than others. But, blaming Black women solely for the problems in the black community is just ridiculous. And, what's your explanation or excuse for black men leaving and these women are left to raise their children by themselves. Don't give me that LAME EXCUSE of black women don't allow these men to take care of their children because a man will do whatever it takes to make sure his children are well taken care of and be there for them even if she's crazy. It's not a threat anymore of black men leaving or going with non black women. Infact, that's what has been going on. More Black women are leaning towards going for non black men also, so it's 50/50. There are also some mature black men out there who are choosing to see both sides, uplifting, focusing on what will help both parties and still love black women because anger or blaming one party will not take us anywhere. P.S You don't have to use god**** to get your point across.

@mahoganymami I read your

@mahoganymami I read your comment and I really wanted to respond to you. I NEVER respected Brian White. Brian is just annoying in almost every aspect. He is not what I consider a real actor and he over-reaches 99% of the time. But I was in 100% agreement in his comments about the power and scale of reality shows. And he was also unusually perceptive about how many Black women are represented by the likes of Nene Leaks. These women tune in week after week and are "entertained" by the catty behavior they see. MODERN women don't even watch those types of shows. There was anEXCELLENT article written by Allison Samuels for NEWSWEEK. You really should read it. In this article the writer came to the same conclusions. The mud-slinging makes for watchable TV, but it also highlights an unsettling new formula for the reality-TV genre: put two or more headstrong African-American women in the same room, and let the fireworks begin. From Oxygen’s Bad Girls to Bravo’s Real Housewives franchise, the small screen is awash with black females who roll their eyes, bob their heads, snap their fingers, talk trash, and otherwise reinforce the ugly stereotype of the “angry black woman.” Take VH1’s Basketball Wives and Love & Hip Hop, which feature the scorned ex-wives and baby mamas of rich NBA stars and rappers. No episode is complete without a bitchy confrontation or a threat to do bodily harm. Also this was in the article.... "What I see now on television for the most part is a disgrace, as far as how we’re depicted,” says Diahann Carroll, who was the first African-American woman to star in her own television show, Julia, in 1968. “I won’t and don’t watch it.” Phylicia Rashad, who played Bill Cosby’s lawyer wife in the iconic 1980s comedy The Cosby Show, recalls what the late NBC executive Brandon Tartikoff told her after the show went off the air. “He said it was going to get much worse before it got better in terms of diversity,” she says. “He was right.” So I don't fault Brian for making those comment. It's NOT BRIAN WHITE who is degrading the image of Black women but it's Black women like Nene Leaks who are degrading the images of Black women. Along with Shaunie O'Neal and many others. And who cares who Brian is dating that is his choice. Women need to get their issues in order and realize who the TRUE enemy is.....
