Nia Long Thanks Whoopi for Early Acting Advice on 'The View'On 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated), actress Nia Long gives heartfelt thanks to Whoopi Goldberg for advice she gave her when the two co-starred together in 'Made in America' in 1993.

According to Long, Goldberg said she had a definite future as an actress, but needed to toughen up and develop a "second layer of skin."

"And [Goldberg] says to me, 'You're going to be great, but you need to develop a second layer of skin,'" said Long. "And when you turn forty, and everything balances out, and you've been in this business the way that I have all of these years, it never left my mind. And I thank you and I love you and now I know what it means to have that second layer of skin."
