- Gugu, short for Gugulethu, translates to "Our Pride" in Zulu
Guru's star quality achieved her first class status on the movie screen starring in other roles for films like Larry Crowne, Belle and Beyond The Lights.
Also, she co-starred alongside Will Smith in Concussion, which helped foster more mainstream awareness to the issue of CTE in the NFL.
I cannot seem to look the other way when she's on-screen.
