"I'll Discuss My Sex Life When I'm Married" – Uche Iwuanyanwu

"I'll Speak About My Sex Life When I'm Married" – Uche Iwuanyanwu

Uche Iwuanyanwu, a rising star in the dome of the Nollywood sky, discusses her bloooming acting career, starring in Ghanaian movies and... many more!
On staying in shape and personal beauty secrets:

"I try to stay in shape these days because I am more mature now than before. I am careful about my diet. And I have always said that if you have got it, you should go head to flaunt it.
What's so special about Ghana? On acting in foreign films:
"I don't have a stake in Ghana. But it's just that I have been getting movie roles from Ghanaian producers in recent times.
"I'm not saying that Nigerian producers are not reckoning with my acting prowess.But it's just that I have not been steady in the industry because of my education. Until last year, I was still a student at University of Jos. A producer cannot afford to wait patiently for you when you are out of reach.That's what affected me.
"But in the case of Ghanaian producers, they know when to get in touch with me, mostly when I'm on break. However, I am finally back in Nollywood, having graduated from the university. I am ready to mingle in the industry now than before. But that does not mean I cannot star in Ghanaian movies when I'm invited to do so.
On sexual harassment in Nollywood industry:
"I am a very pretty girl, and it's not as if I'm praising myself. You know, when you are beautiful, certain things are bound to happen. So, I will be lying if I deny the fact that men don't admire my beauty. Yes, they do, and almost ceaselessly. But I think the most important thing is for one to remain focused on your goals. If you are good in what you are doing, a producer will definitely find it difficult not to give you a role in his new movie simply because you refused to sleep with him.
"My beauty cannot affect the way I relate to other people. I am not the only beautiful girl in town. I am just the girl next door. No doubt, being beautifu has its own advantages. But it doesn't mean that men should pay your bills. Despite your beauty, you should be able to work very hard to avoid depending on men for everything you need as a woman.
On her latest projects:
"I just concluded the production of a movie in Ghana titled 'Cheaters'. I acted alongside Jackie Appiah, the USA-based actress, Okawa Shazney and Elikem Kurmodzie, who represented Ghana in the ongoing Big Brother Africa reality TV show. The movie premiered yesterday in Ghana at Silverbird Cinemas and is due to hit Nigerian cinemas today. It is about the game of cheating that is peculiar with married couple. I played the role of a married woman in the movie.
On training to acquire acting skills:
"Acting is inborn in me, but I tried as much as possible to sharpen my talent by acquiring more knowledge in acting. I have a Diploma in Mass Communication before I later pursued a degree program in Economics. During my Diploma program, I did some courses in Theatre Arts. I have always wanted to become an actress.
On dating, sex and her being in a relationship:
