Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde opens up in an interview with Premium times about her husband’s perception on her sex scenes in her latest movie, Alter Ego.
She said: Some of the sex scenes in Alter Ego were downplayed because I’m married. But I won’t play the sex scenes if it wasn’t necessary to be included in the film. I know by starring in this movie that my fans would either hate me or love me forever.
While shooting the film, I knew I was doing something quite risky. There are several ways to shoot a sex scene tastefully. I’m all for playing a sex scene convincingly and my husband knows this.
I tell my husband, “You know what darling, you married an actor”; and secondly, he is my biggest fan. I tell him, “Do you want me to be great or do you just want me to be good?” He will say, “I want you to be great, sparklingly great”.
She explained that her husband understands her profession as he is also a professional and that it was necessary for her to play the sex scenes. She added that he was always fine with whatever she does in her career.
When asked about the perception of Nigerians about her role in Alter Ego, she said Nigerian movies have lost its chemistry and that it needs to be revived. She mentioned that sex scenes should be done appropriately.
