  3. “I’m lucky that I’ve never been bullied personally. There are always going to be kids who are mean and say stuff, but the people that matter to you – the people you love, like your parents, your siblings, and your friends – those are the people you should listen to.”
  4. “It’s true, I used to be so shy. I used to never talk, just sit back and do my thing. I was never bullied, though, and it was never like it was something that needed to be ‘fixed’, like being shy is a bad thing.”
  5. “My favorite thing about doing photo shoots is just being able to have fun, meeting new people, getting dressed up, and I just love doing it. So, I have a lot of fun.”

  11. “I try to keep my filters simple. I don’t do anything major to my photos.”
  12. “I was the biggest liar for no reason, and then as I got older, I thought, ‘Why am I lying to everybody?’ I would hear other people lie and be like, ‘You sound so stupid.’ So then I would just change my lies. The only person I lie to is my little sister, when I steal her clothes.”

  22. “I weirdly love interior design and real estate and all of that. I really do. I get chills from it.”
  23. “I’m a very loyal and very private person when it comes to my personal life. But I obviously do have Twitter and Instagram, and I will share some of the things I’m doing.”
  24. “It’s just scary to think how fast everything is rolling, and you can’t stop it.”

He frequently collaborates with his brother Shawn Wayans, as he was on The WB sitcom The Wayans Bros. and in the comedic films Scary Movie, Scary Movie 2, White Chicks, Little Man, and Dance Flick. However, Wayans had a dramatic role in Darren Aronofsky’s critically acclaimed Requiem for a Dream, which saw his departure from the usual comedies.

 

In 2016, Wayans wrote, produced and starred in Fifty Shades of Black. The film is a parody of the 2015 erotic romantic drama film Fifty Shades of Grey. In 2017, NBC gave him his own sitcom, Marlon, for a 10-episode run. In September 2017, Marlon got renewed by NBC for a second season which is now available on Netflix.
