Oscar-nominated actress and multi-talented performer Queen Latifah reunited with her Girls Trip co-stars Regina Hall, Tiffany Haddish, and Jada Pinkett Smith via Zoom on the most recent episode of Facebook Watch's Red Table Talk, and while the hilarious quartet talked about everything from a possible Girls Trip sequel to their go-to quarantine looks, one of the liveliest parts of their virtual get-together was when they started talking about their celebrity crushes. 

While Hall, Haddish, and Pinkett Smith all gushed about their favorite celebrity men of the moment, like Henry Cavill, Gavin Newsom, and even Jada's husband Will Smith, Latifah got candid and opened up about her celebrity crush on another woman—Brazilian supermodel Adriana Lima.

"I like the girl. She’s a Brazilian model," Latifah said when discussing her celeb crush, although she was having trouble remembering her name.

"Ooh, you're talking about Adriana Lima. She's a cutie," Pinkett Smith affirms. "Yeah, she's a cutie for sure."

"Oh yeah, that’s my crush," Latifah confirms, playfully sticking her tongue out and using a sexy voice. "Yeah, she got fire. I like her. That’s my girl right there."

Although she played the titular role of legendary bisexual blues singer Bessie Smith in Pariah director Dee Rees' 2015 HBO biopic Bessie and a butch lesbian in 1996's Set It Off, Latifah has been famously private about her personal life and her sexuality ever since the early years of her career as a rapper. Her recent appearance on Red Table Talk and her openness to discuss her crush on another woman will surely be a notable moment for many of her queer fans.
