Nia Long is the rare actress who manages to be both ageless and timeless. From her appearance in films like Boyz n the Hood, Love Jones, Friday and The Best Man to her now-iconic recurring role in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Long has proved herself to be a truly memorable part of black pop culture history.

Shot by Marc Baptiste, Long covers the latest issue of Uptown Magazine. Long who stars in Keanu, and also stars in the upcoming comedy series Uncle Buck talked career longevity and balancing work and life.

“I’m a woman over 40, so thank God I’m working,” says Long, 45. “I’m not trying to be an ingénue anymore. I wouldn’t want those opportunities because then that would just mean that I haven’t grown.”

“I think parenting is one of those things you have to get right,” “I really am accountable for who I’m creating, or who I’m helping to create.”
