Queen Latifah Made Sure You Will Never See Her Do This On-Screen Again

She's here to stay.

After acting in over 35 feature films, it's safe to say Queen Latifah has cemented her name in Hollywood.

But there was one movie in particular that impacted her so much, she decided to make a major change in her contract: Set It Off.

Set It Off is a crime/action film surrounding four friends who rob banks together.

Set It Off is a crime/action film surrounding four friends who rob banks together.

Anyone familiar with this film knows Queen Latifah's character Cleo died a tragic death, filled with cops firing multiple gun shots at her getaway car.

I swear as soon as she lights that cigarette and Lori Perri's "Up Against the Wind" starts playing, the tears start flowing. Literally every time.

So, after "dying her ass off," it's no wonder the 47-year-old Golden Globe winner decided to add a "death clause" to her acting contract.

She stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers to talk all about it:

"I put a death clause in my contract right after that movie. I was like, wait a minute, I'm starting to die too good in these movies and if I die I can't be in the sequel."

"No more dying. That's it!"

If you're worried about it hurting her career or limiting her script options, don't. She's doing just fine without the death scenes.

Not to mention, her new film Girls Trip dominated at the box office and the only thing she was dying of was laughter.
