Award-winning actor Tyler Perry knows when and how to recognize another talented entertainer, so it's no surprise that he took to the gram to praise Cicely Tyson, a veteran actress.


The multi-talented entertainer gushed over Cicely while she attended his recent movie premiere, "A Fall from Grace," and he referred to her as a "Queen."

Tyler's post saw the actress seated in front of him, she donned a dark-colored dress and had a glammed up face, while he stood behind her in a wide-eyed grin.

Giving honor to whom honor is due were the actions of the "A Fall from Grace" producer. He wrote a concise message bearing great admiration for the movie star over her age, and her flawlessness as an award-winning star. It read:

"THIS WOMAN IS 45 years older than I am!! Damn, I need to moisturize!! All jokes aside. This is Queen Cicely. What a life, what a journey, what a soul!! We love you!!"

50-year-old Tyler Perry has managed to build a successful career and consolidated his credibility as an excellent producer over the years.


With over 40 productions to his name, numerous collaborations with the Oprah Winfrey Network, Tyler unrelentingly continues to strive for perfection and continuously connects with his audience through his works.

"A Fall from Grace" is due for release in less than 48 hours.

The actor's newest acquisition is a 330-acre filming studio in the city of Atlanta, after which he embarked on the "A Fall from Grace" project that featured an array of excellent talents. 


Having "Acrimony" starring Taraji P. Henson hit as a blockbuster in 2018, Tyler assured that the content of this new film is highly intriguing. He said

"The audience has been going nuts every time we show it. It's totally going to throw you off trying to figure out the end."

The movie features renowned faces like Cicely Tyson, Crystal Fox, Mechad Brooks, and Phylicia Rashad, and it centers on a woman accused of murdering her unfaithful husband.


She then tries to find love a second time, unfortunately, for the woman, her happy ever after with her Prince Charming is all false, as the relationship was built on lies.

"A Fall from Grace" is due for release in less than 48 hours, but Tyler Perry's fans have had the honor of watching a teaser at the beginning of the new year.

While the 50-year-old assured his fans of an extraordinary delivery, there's no need to doubt because Cicely Tyson, a Tony and Emmy winner, features in this production.

Over the years, her incredible talent has shown that she's an extraordinary performer who can bring any character to life.
