The Nollywood thespian said she doesn’t like watching herself on the screen, especially some raunchy scenes. Omosexy as she is fondly called by her husband, says she has challenges in playing sex roles as a married woman.
However, those challenges doesn’t stop her from getting the job done. Omotola recently told The Sun Newspaper in an interview that so long as it is acting; she is ready to take up any role just to make her fans happy.
Omotola on playing love and sex scenes
Below are some excerpts from Omotola interview with The Sun.
“Sometimes you can tell while watching a movie that a couple doesn’t have chemistry. It is not something you can force. Some actors are very good at acting it. But sometimes, when it has to do with love, relationship, it’ is not easy to play.”
“When you want to act like you love the person, there are some natural acts and gesticulations that you can’t force. But if you are a well-trained actor, you would not find that difficult.”
“There are some little tricks to these things that some actors don’t know. You can make it happen and look real too, especially in love and sex scenes.”
Nigerian Actress Omotola on playing a Prostitute
Omotola also stated that she has played the character of a promiscuous woman before, in a popular movie titled ‘The Prostitute‘. That she’s ready to play such roles again as a married woman.
“When I wasn’t even that confident, I starred in a movie called The Prostitute, which was released 22 years ago. If I didn’t die then, is it now? I am ready for them. I don’t even like watching myself on screen. If I do, I will feel like burning inside and might even start crying because I criticise myself a lot. Sometimes, I pity those watching especially when I poorly do a sex scene. I would be like ‘what was that for?’ ”
She also added that a sex scene must not be done poorly, that if one has to kiss in a movie they must be ready to do it well and make it professional.
“It can kill the whole movie when it’s poorly done. For me, if a sex scene is not going to be well done, then why do it in the first place? If you must kiss, you should be able to kiss well; make it professional.”
Omotola appreciate her Husband’s support
The proud mother of 4 grown children did not fail to appreciate her husband, Captain Matthew Ekeinde, whom she says has been very supportive.
In her own words, Omotola said this about her husband:
“So far, my husband and I have over 20 plus acres of land in Badagry. He has his for his ‘Aquatic Jungle Entertainment’ and I have mine for the film village. We have started with the first phase, which will have a cinema and other attractions. It is in its early stages, but surely, we are making progress.”
