Nigerian actress turned Evangelist Eucharia Anunobi has said that even as a pastor, she can take up any movie roles.
The actress who rose to fame with raunchy movie, Glamour Girls, said she gave her life to christ in 1997, at the peak of her acting career.
In a chat with Punch, Anunobi who lost her only child in 2017, said being a pastor doesn’t stop anyone from taking up any career.
She said, “Some people think that when you become a minister of the gospel, you are not supposed to have a career. However, being a minister does not stop you from working.
“Since I started acting, I have never taken a break and I am not going there. I think what caused this misconception is that because of the activities of pirates, many movie producers were not publicising our works.”
The actress said that although, her movie may not be seen on billboards, she has been acting since and just got back from set.
She explained, “So when people don’t see you in movie adverts, they think that you are no longer on the scene.”
“As a matter of fact, I just got back from set. Even as a pastor, I can still act a movie like Glamour Girls because my individuality is different from whatever character I portray in a movie.
“I always tell people that undue exposure of the body that does not add to the story doesn’t make sense.
“I watch some movies where people bare skin for no plausible reason. Being a pastor does not stop me from acting any role, as long as there is no undue exposure of my body.
“I gave my life to Christ in 1997; so, even at the peak of my career, I was a born again.”
