For the kid gangsta Bow Wow, star of Warner Bros.’ “Lottery Ticket,” living the Hollywood dream has become his own lotto ticket.
“This is enough for me, man,” he said at the film’s preem held Thursday at Grauman’s Chinese Theater. “To be here and witness my movie premiere at one of the most famous theaters in the world, I mean, when you talk about making it to Hollywood, that’s it.”
Still, the 23-year-old rapper-turned-actor described an arguably non-Hollywood dream if he were to win the lottery, saying, “I’m a conservative dude now, you know? I’ll just stack the money.”
Down the boulevard from Grauman’s, Bow Wow joined co-stars Ice Cube and Keith David at Drai’s W Hotel rooftop after-party. Director Erik White, who modeled the pic’s lotto-winning character after himself, said he would give back to his Brooklyn roots.
“Personally, I would want to see people rise above and shine from that,” White said. “I know it sounds corny, but I wouldn’t know what to do with that much money.”
