‘The Photograph’ producer Will Packer shares his own love story
Hollywood power producer Will Packer’s film “The Photograph” follows a series of intertwining love stories. And he told us the tale of how his wife of five years, Heather Hayslett, turned him down the first time he asked for a date.
“I knew she was the one as soon as I saw her,” Packer told us at a screening of his movie. “She could have been ‘running game’ on me, but I did not care. I said I wanted her in my life. I said, ‘I am going to change her life.’ We met at the Essence Festival.”
Despite that optimistic outlook: “I asked her out, she shut me down, she wanted nothing to do with me. But that made me want her more — that is how it is with guys. We want what we can’t have.”
The film’s cast includes Issa Rae, Lakeith Stanfield and Lil Rel Howery.
