Amar’e Stoudemire : Film Producer by Lloyd Carroll

Amare Stoudemire rejuvenates with red wine

New York Knicks forward Amar’e Stoudemire is best known for his devastating dunks on the basketball court, but he now has his fingers in the entertainment world, as he’s one of the executive producers of the new BET-Relativity film, “Beyond The Lights”, which opened in November, written and directed by Gina Price-Bythewood of “Love and Basketball” fame. “Film is definitely something that I’m going to continue to do even after basketball is over.”

Amar’e is one of the most upbeat players I have ever met. He happily signs autographs for fans and enjoys chatting with the media. I asked him if there were any medicinal benefits from bathing in red wine after a photo of him doing so was published. “We’ll find out soon!” he said with a hearty laugh. He patted me on the back when I told him that I prefer Pinot Noir the old-fashioned imbibing way.
