Well isn’t this just four scoops of adorable. Djimon Hounsou was spotted with 4-year-old son Kenzo Lee at Matsuhisa restaurant in Beverly Hills.
The 49-year-old actor revealed that he took the role of Korath the Pursuer in the upcoming Marvel flick ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ to show young Kenzo Lee that the opportunity for diversity in Superhero Character Land is wide open.
“The lack of diversity, specifically in genre films and the superheroes our kids grow up watching and emulating, they can’t really identify with,” Hounsou said in an interview with Collider.
“When you see the same thing, over and over again, and it seems not to speak of you and your heritage and your culture, it leaves you out of this world, a little bit. It gives a certain social distance with your world. So, it was very shocking when my son said that. It shocked me, but at the same time, it was not a surprise.”
“It’s one of those things that even I have been looking for,” he continued. “I’m looking for a hero of my kind, and I’m looking for a shero of my kind. Now, we have Zoe Saldana, who is a shero for minorities, and that’s kind of nice.”
