He shared,

“She was so terrified of the circus that I’ve joined. My mum’s a pastor, and she was very clear about safety. She would say, ‘No drinking, no drugs, no s-x’ every time I left the house.” 

“The drinking was a thing, and she’d always say, ‘So baby, watch your cup. Watch your glass.’ And I kept that in mind.”

The Last Black Man in San Francisco actor explained,

“It means mind your cup. You’re a vessel. Nobody can fill you up. Nobody can pour you out. You do that yourself. Holding onto this cup is a reminder that even in this craziness that’s happening, my self-esteem is my self-esteem. No one can big me up as it were or tear me down.”

The actor has been spotted with the cup at various events, and his film premieres.
