Mo'Nique may have taken home a Golden Globe on Sunday night for her moving performance as an abusive mother in the motion picture "Precious: Based on the novel PUSH by Sapphire," but it's Mo'Nique's hairy legs that are getting all of the attention.

Hollywood is abuzz about the 42-year-old's au naturale legs, which she flashed for the cameras on the red carpet.

But, it's no surprise to us: The comedian-turned-actress-turned-talk show host has been known to show off her leg hair with pride. During an appearance on "The View" in 2006, Mo'Nique opened up to Barbara Walters on why she chooses not to take a razor to her legs.

"I must show America what a real leg looks like . . . because it's too much in the morning, every morning, to shave, to cut, you got Band-aids baby," she said. "I really think hair on a woman's legs is a black woman's thing."

But the buxom beauty did admit to removing hair under her arms to prevent "stink." Check out the interview below.
