Celebrity Gist: Contrary to other desperate Nollywood Actress who had to succumb to sex for roles in Nigerian movies, Nollywood Actress Uche Ebere Agu says she has never opened her legs for a movie role. Continue reading for more gist on Ebere Agu on Nollywood Community.

In a recent interview published on National Mirror, Uche Ebere Agu talks about her integrity in Nollywood and how she would never fall victim of sexual harassment, among others.

During the interview, when asked ‘What message do you have for the young ones desper­ate for movie roles?‘ Here’s what Ebere Agu had to say:

Ebere: They shouldn’t cheapen themselves for roles and begin to sleep with movie producers. I say this because I can’t do it. I’m someone that values her integrity so much. No man in the entertainment world or Nollywood can ever say Ebere Agu has ever opened her legs for him for a movie role.

Q: But is that not hap­pening?

Ebere: It’s a trend, it is happening, but that is not done by big pro­ducers because they have far outgrown that. So, my advice is ‘don’t open your legs for anyone who is prom­ising to help project you in Nollywood be­cause as soon as you start you would continue. But when you are known for be­ing responsible, you would be respected. Though getting roles won’t be as easy as you think, patience matters a lot in life, also one’s future, and put in more effort and when you are givis very important . Keep going for auditions en one scene, give in your best. ­

Q: How do you overcome sexual harassment which of course is seen in every profession?

Ebere: It’s not a do-or-die affair. If you don’t want it, there is a polite manner in which one can address the issue and I’m sure if well han­dled, you and that same person may even be­come best of friends. This has happened to me and the maturity with which I handled it made the person respect me to this day.
