Jordin Sparks has admitted that she struggled to watch the finshed version of her debut movie Sparkle because she still misses Whitney Houston.
The actress revealed that "she couldn't stop crying" during the movie, which stars the late soul singer, because she is not hear "to experience" the final product of their hard work.
"It was very surreal. It's just so crazy because she'd been working so long on getting this film out and it was so important to her," the 22-year-old told UK TV show Lorraine.
"That then to be watching it and knowing she's not here to talk about it, knowing she's not here to really experience it, it's very bittersweet."
Whitney Houston died while filming scenes for the Tristar Pictures movie after drowning in a bathtub at the Hilton Hotel in February this year.
"To see her, the first time I saw it, I was a wreck as soon as she walked on screen. I didn't stop crying the entire movie," Jordin added.
