For pretty, talented Nollywood actress Bimbo Ademoye, there are certain movie roles she would not accept even if the pay is enticing.
According to her, she was more than her curves or the sexy roles she sometimes plays.
She told Saturday Beats that she would reject N10m if the storyline of the movie she is supposed to act is not interesting.
She said, “(I would consider) the storyline more than anything (else) in the world. I would reject N10m if the story does not make sense. I have said this before. There were times I fell victim of the storyline not being wonderful. I had read the story and it was good but when I got on set, they decided to cut corners. The movie was released and the editor did not do a good job. It did not look nice at all. I have actually rejected scripts, telling the producer the story did not work for me.”
Also speaking on her ability to perfectly interpret different roles, Ademoye said it had to do with her childhood in the Ebute Meta area of Lagos State. “I think it has to do with my childhood. I grew up in Ebute Meta― in ‘the hood’ like people would say. I grew up around several characters and different people. When people see me playing a certain character, I am probably trying to mimic someone I knew while growing up. Thankfully, so far so good, it comes out well,”
Sharing her thoughts on the trend of fans tattooing the names and images of celebrities on their bodies, she said, “(If a fan does that), I would acknowledge the person. I have a tattoo and I know the pain one goes through when the needle is scribbled on one’s body. However, I would not give out money. I mean no disrespect to anyone. But, how many people would I give money to? Of course, I would acknowledge the fan and probably meet the person one on one. But, that is where it is going to end.”
The Covenant University graduate also stated that fame had not changed much about her. She added, “I still feel like the Bimbo who had 800 followers two years ago. I still mind my business and stay on my lane. I am all about the movies (acting) and family.”
