Psst, Beyoncé....Here's How You Can Make 'War Witch' Star Rachel Mwanza's Oscar Weekend

02-beyonce2

If Beyoncé plans to take part in the Oscar festivities this weekend, then her people should reach out to the producers of War Witch. As I wrote yesterday, 16-year-old Rachel Mwanza, who gives a remarkable first-time acting performance in the movie  has been granted a visa to attend the Oscars. And her big dream is to meet Sasha Fierce during her trip to the United States.

War Witch Producer, Marie-Claude Poulin, told the Los Angeles Times that the filmmakers are trying to arrange for the young actress — who was homeless on the streets of Kinshasha when she was cast — meet Beyoncé, her "ultimate idol."

"That's all she talks about," Poulin said. "The only English words she knows are Beyonce and Rihanna songs."

I've contacted Beyonce's spokeswoman and a representative for the film to see if there's been any movement on that meeting happening. I'll update if I receive any word.
