The Kodjoes-actor Boris Kodjoe, actress Nicole Ari Parker-Kodjoe, and children Nicolas,3, and Sophie,4- are featured on the cover of this month’s Jet magazine. In the issue, the Kodjoes talk about their simple life away from Hollywood and much more.
The following is a snippet from the issue:
“We live for our family,” Boris tells Jet during a break on [a] movie set in Toronto. “That’s our priority-my kids and my wife, that’s my life.”
The Kodjoes moved away from the bright lights of Hollywood four years ago in search of a simpler, family oriented life in Atlanta.
“The pull of Hollywood is so strong that sometimes your priorities are not in the right place,” says Nicole. “We wanted to make sure that we focused on our children during these delicate years.”
Boris explains, ” The first four years of a child’s life are the most important. We chose Atlanta because it’s a very professional town in terms of African-Americans. The kids can run around outside in the yard and grow up as regular kids.”
