Magic Mike XXL (Rome)
By the time Jada Pinkett Smith got around to making an appearance in Steven Sodenbergh’s Magic Mike XXL in 2015, she already a major star thanks to a number of high profile roles in the years, and even decades, leading up to the sequel to the 2012 surprise hit. In the sequel, Pinkett Smith portrays Rome, the owner of a high-end strip club based in Savannah, Georgia, that Magic Mike (Channing Tatum) has a checked past with.
The actress is believable in her depiction of a woman fed up with a not-so-young male stripper’s games and gives off the vibe that she’s not willing to help. But when they need it the most, help arrives in the form of Rome, who does everything in her ability to pull off the memorable final performance.
