Former Big Brother Naija Housemate Wathoni Anyansi has obviously bitten more than she can chew when she insinuated that Nollywood actresses use their bodies to get roles in movies.
Wathoni had sparked reactions on social media after revealing why she cannot take acting as a profession.
During an interactive session on Instagram, a fan had questioned Wathoni if she has ever considered acting as a profession considering she is beautiful.
Responding, Wathoni said she has tried acting so many times, but it’s unfortunate that in this part of the world, the body of an actress is what helps her.
She wrote: I have and so many times even… But in this part of the world, your body is what help you in that industry, unfortunately.”
The statement generated several reactions online as some social media users claimed her view disrespects Nollywood actresses who have put in hard work to become successful.
For seasoned Nollywood actress cum filmmaker, Ani Amatosero, she had one one occasion featured Wathoni in one of her movies, but sadly the BBN star couldn’t carry out her lines properly.
Amatosero also threatened to beat up Wathoni if they get to see each other physically, adding that after all they are of same size.
Posting a photo of Wathoni, Amatosero wrote: ” Wathoni Ayansi (if u like block me I will put ur full names since I can’t tag you) e be like say you dey mad. You dey ment?
