Stunning Nollywood actress, Jennifer John has said movie roles should not come with a sexual price tag.
In a recent interview, Jennifer said even if she continues to encounter producers who want sex for movie roles, she will not accept such.
She said she will rather wait for the roles she would be offered on merit.
Her words, “I’ve gotten several sex for role proposals from producers which of course I turned down because that is not who I am. Every role up until now has nothing to do with sexual favors and I bless God for that. My God ordained roles will get to me without any such compromise. If the role was God ordained for me, it won’t come with any such conditions. I also feel like the industry is growing past that stage where roles are given for such reasons and not because the individual can beautifully interpret the role. The stakes are higher now, competition is stiffer.
I think people would rather consider the business side of things, rather than give roles to someone just because they complied with your sexual demands.
That would be less than smart for business.”
On being a future wife alongside being an actress, “Well, my parents don’t believe in that narrative, thankfully.
Although they ask those questions when they hear of crashed celebrity marriages. I, however think they’re more confident in the values they instilled in us,to guide me in being able to balance my career and being a good wife.
A lot of celebrity marriages pack up but there are still some that rock solid regardless of their celebrity status. I’ll take a cue from those and of course with the help and direction from God I’ll successfully manage both. I like honest men a lot. I guess because they are really hard to find these days. So, a man who’s genuine and honest is everything to me.
I don’t like deceit,lies. The kind of men that generally thrill my fantasy are romantic, honest and intelligent men. He also has to smart, driven, Godfearing and got a vision.”
