Mariah Carey is set to hit the big screen yet again, in Lee Daniels’ “The Butler”. In the first official image from the film, the “Beautiful” diva can be seen in the middle of a cotton field sans makeup. Carey takes on the role as field slave Hattie Pearl.
The film is based on a true story of former White House butler Eugene Allen, the historical drama centers on Cecil Gaines who serves eight American presidents over three decades. The film traces the dramatic changes felt by American society at that time, from the civil rights movement to Vietnam and beyond, and how those changes affect the man’s life and family.
