Chelsea Eze who is one of the up-and-coming Nollywood actresses in a chat with Sunday Scoop, said she can act nude if the nude scene is done in a tasteful manner.
“If the opportunity comes with a good story and the money is right, I can act nude. As long as it’s tastefully done, I am okay with it,” she said. She went further to say that she won’t be able to do a full frontal nude.
“I will not be able to do a full frontal. I am not particular about what I am showing or what I am not showing. As an actor, you should be able to go the extra mile to portray certain character. There was no way the scene where Lupita Njong was nude could have been done without her going nude. If the story warrants that I go naked, of course I will do it because I am an actor before anything.”
When reminded that Nigerian society frowns at nudity and there might be a backlash, the fair-skinned actress said if the film was worth it, she could live with the backlash. “I’m weary of the backlash because as human beings, some comments will get to me but at the end of the day I am an actor.”
She informed Sunday Scoop, that the fee for acting nude would have to be in millions and insisted that her future husband would have to understand that acting is make-believe.
