A Holiday Surprise From Beyoncé Sends Laverne Cox to the Floor
The Orange is the New Black star made Beyoncé's Christmas card list this year
And the well-known Bey superfan’s excitement at receiving Bey’s annual Christmas card on Friday couldn’t be contained: The actress shared photos on social media of the singer’s hand-signed correspondence, as well as a “Cake by the Pound” sweatshirt she received as gift. Talk about a Snoopy dance moment!
For Cox, 30, 2014 was a breakout year. Her role as Sophia Burset on Netflix’s beloved series made her the first openly transgender actress to earn an Emmy nod. But the Emmys take a backseat to Beyoncé for Cox, who was obviously thrilled at Bey’s noticing and remembering her this holiday season.
“Thanks Bey for the gift. I have had an awesome year and this is certainly a highlight. Happy holidays Mrs. Carter to you and your beautiful family. Thanks for all the amazing music and endless inspiration you’ve given to me and so many,” the LGBT activist gushed. “Since No No No I have been saying YASSS YASSS YASSS! #QueenBey foever.”
