As guests noshed on lettuce wraps and hanger steak, the talented actors addressed everything from typecasting â€“ (â€œThe characters I play may be strong women, but they arenâ€™t the same,â€ said Smith) â€“ to the brilliance of director Salim Akil. â€œIn the next five years, Salim will be one of the top directors in Hollywood,â€ praised Alonso. â€œNot just a top black director, but one of the best in the businessâ€¦period!â€
