LisaRaye McCoy Says Playing a Stripper In “The Players Club” Led To An “Identity Crisis” Lisa Raye McCoy recently revealed that playing “Diamond” in “The Players Club” led to an identity crisis.  McCoy tells Page Six that she felt she needed the long hair and look like her character to be recognized in public. Lisa Raye says the movie “put me on the map…it made me a bona fide sex symbol, and when you are a sex symbol people think that you’re sexy all the time, and that stigma follows you,” she added. “So I am forever Diamond.”   McCoy says she is grateful for Ice Cube who she called, “professional” during the filming of her striptease and set up several cameras so she only had to do the take twice.  Do you still see Lisa Raye as “Diamond?” Do you think she’ll ever be able to top her “Player’s Club” performance?
