1I've been hounded by a reputation of being difficult when really what I'm being is truthful and honest. And I think that's been a thorn in my side. I auditioned for a lot of work and got some good feedback, and then was told I wasn't the choice.


1(August 30, 2015) Married for the 2nd time her boyfriend of 5 years Shareef Malnik following a 14-month-long engagement in a intimate outdoor ceremony who was held as the sun set over the rolling hills of The Ranch at Rock Creek in Phillipsburg, Montana. The Western-themed wedding weekend culminated in a gorgeous ceremony where 150 guests rocked 1800s Wild West Period Costumes - the dress code was described as "Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid meets Little House on the Prairie meets 1800s Bordello". A talented seamstress and designer in her own right, Anwar, 45, made her own wedding gown working from patterns of the late 1800s. Fashioning pieces of Victorian blush lace lingerie between the bones of an ivory bodice, the actress also designed a removable silk bustle to keep with the 1800s Wild West theme. The couple kept the wedding party all in the family: Anwar's daughter, Willow, 21, was the maid of honor; her son Hugo, 14, was ring bearer; and daughter Paisley, 11, was the flower girl. On the groom's side, Shareef, 57, had his father, Al Malnick, as his best man, while his son Yaseen, 30, was a groomsman and his grandson Shams, 6, served as banner bearer.
