Rosie Perez resented writing her new memoir. Why she wrote it anyway.

March 4, 2014

Actress, choreographer, and now author Rosie Perez recently stopped by OutQ to talk with Larry Flick about her life experiences and how hesitant she was to write her memoir, Handbook for an Unpredictable Life.

Perez credited her charity, Urban Arts Partnership, as the reason why she was able to move past her initial reluctance and finally finish the book.”That’s what kept me going… The kids in my charity…They are going through what I went through,” said Perez. “That’s what kept me going… If someone would have said something, I would have gotten there quicker.”
