We just came across news that will make you rejoice and cry at the same time. You see, NFLer DeAndre Hopkins‘ mother, Sabrina Greenlee, is getting a film made about her inspirational life
Hopkins, the superstar wide receiver of the NFL Houston Texans is telling the universe that he wants the one and only Oprah Winfrey to play his mother in the film.
Here’s the backstory on his mom via TMZ Sports:
Back in 2002, she was ambushed by a woman who threw a dangerous mixture of drain cleaner and Clorox bleach at her face … which blinded her immediately.
The attack nearly killed her — and sent her into deep depression afterward — but she battled back to be an awesome mother and an active community leader.
Flash forward to now and DeAndre was spotted in Beverly Hills this past weened and was asked who he had in mind to portray his mom.
Initially he threw out Issa Rae’s name, but we guess he thought about the fact that she’s not that that much older than him and came back with Oprah Winfrey.
