Nollywood actor, Gregory Ojefua has said he can go nude in a movie, regardless of what anyone might think.
In a recent interview the actor who featured alongside Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde in ‘Alter Ego, said he can go nude in a movie depending on the story-line.
He, however made this known, while revealing his view on Omotola’s role in Alter Ego.
According to him, culture is different from professionalism. And Omotola’s role is paramount to the movie’s story-line.
Defending Omotola, he said, “If or when I get married, in order for me to tell a story proper it requires me to go semi-nude or whatever, I will do it.
Referring to Omotola, he stressed; “If we are saying because she’s married she shouldn’t make the role in Alter Ego, it means the moment we run out of actresses that are single, nobody will do a love-making scene or go semi-nude. Of course No! it is just doing everything we do professionally, act responsibly, there is nothing wrong with her role in the movie, she was just trying to tell a story.
“In the movie, it was obvious she was trying to tell the psychological effect of what happens to her as a youth that ended up giving her that sexual problem she was dealing with. Those scenes just had to come to tell the story a bit more.”
Making emphasis on his statement of going nude if required, he added; “I can go nude in a movie, depending on the story-line. Look at what Lupita Nyong O did in ’12 Years A Slave’, she went nude just to actually show you how slaves were dealt with at that time. That was a good reason to go nude, I would not just go nude in order to give a film accountability.
“My going nude depends on the story, stories like you want to shoot a slave movie again, you want to shoot a Biafra movie. I would do it to pass the message across. When you join the military, you sign with your life. Your life is no longer yours, it is for the nation. And as an actor when you decide to be an actor, be ready to go all the way.”
