Cooperation key to Raven-Symone's success

March 9, 2008 at 7:29 PM   |   Comments

NEW YORK, March 9 (UPI) -- U.S. actress-singer Raven-Symone says her success in the entertainment business has been helped by her ability to work well with others.

The 22-year-old actress -- whose new film with Martin Lawrence, "College Road Trip," grossed an estimated $14 million when it opened this weekend in U.S. theaters -- says she has learned to keep an open mind when working with others during her 19 years in the entertainment industry, The New York Daily News said Sunday.

"I don't want to walk into the writing session like, 'This is what it's going to be,'" said Raven-Symone, who starred in "The Cosby Show" when she was only 3 years old. "I think it's very closed-minded (to) not utilize other people's power to further your life."

She told the newspaper that as both her musical and cinematic careers have bloomed, so has her appreciation for what other talented people can bring to a project.

"As I am growing, it's more of an open-mindedness (that) everybody needs everybody," she said. "I think it's good to remind yourself that you are a queen and magnificent and your body is a temple, and realize you have to interact with these people."
