A single mother

DeBose was married to a Puerto Rican, but the couple divorced. She raised her only child, Ariana, as a single mom. Ariana characterized her as one of the strongest persons she has ever seen, her idol, and her closest friend in an interview. She described her mother as one of the best instructors she has ever seen, as well as a mother figure to both her and her pupils. Being a single parent and an educator is difficult for anybody.

When she first began teaching, they resided in New Bern, North Carolina. They lacked enough resources and opportunities, and instructors were underpaid. As a result, they relocated in order for Ariana to have greater possibilities as a young dancer in better schools. She said that every decision she took was for her benefit, for which she is glad.

Ariana said that she told the director “No” during her audition for the Oscar-winning role.

Ariana earned her first Academy Award for best actress in a supporting role for her performance as Anita in the film West Side Story, which altered her life. She did, however, tell TODAY’s Willie Geist that she had said “no” to the director when auditioning for the part for the first time. She went to the audition at the last minute, according to her, and the famed director Steven Spielberg requested her to sing and dance, which she did and he adored.

The director then requested her to read the lines, to which she declined. He questioned whether she was saying no for the second time, and she continued to repeat no. She was portraying Donna Summer at the time, which was a difficult role for her, and she didn’t have time to prepare to owe to her demanding schedule. And she doesn’t walk into a room with people in it without being prepared, she says.

After Ariana answered no, Spielberg asked if she would return, to which she replied that she would be honored. Ariana auditioned for and was cast as Anita in his new remake of the old classic West Side Story. Ariana also said that after landing the job, she was ordered to keep quiet about it for three months. She couldn’t recall whether she informed her mother over the phone because she was concerned at the time that she was being bugged or that it was a test.

She jumped at the chance to meet a great filmmaker.

Ariana recalls her mother’s visit to the set of West Side Story, when she met famed director Steven Spielberg, in an interview for People’s Oscar Portfolio. DeBose paid a visit to the set on the day Ariana was shooting Dancing at the Gym and spoke with the director.¬†Ariana said that her mother was rendered speechless at the moment. It was great to witness her grow silent, she remarked.

After the strong criticism and bullying on Twitter, BAFTA producer Nick Bullen came out in support of her.

Bullen described the trolls as “very cruel” in an interview, adding that the song she was singing was one of her favorites, with the whole audience cheering and dancing. He also said that the rap portion in the middle was created to honor the ladies in the room since it has been a tremendous year for women in movies.

Ariana’s career in the entertainment world started in 2009 when she appeared on the reality television show “So You Think You Can Dance.”¬†Before her breakout performance in West Side Story, she spent 10 years on Broadway.
