Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson, has explained why she can no longer play nude or intimate romantic scenes in movies anymore.
The 35-year-old mother of three in an interview with Goldmyne, said she has stopped taking such roles because she now has answers to many people.
The gifted movie star said, although she has made some errors and choices she’s not proud of in the past, her sense of judgment and maturity has heightened with age in recent times.
“When I do that, what would the younger girls do? When you grow past a certain level, you try to go ahead and do better. For me, you don’t need people to tell you what’s right or wrong,” she said.
“Age is telling on me. I’ve grown past that level, I’m answerable to too many people: my husband, my kids. I hate to embarrass them in any way. My daughter is growing.
“She gets hold of my phone sometimes, begins to google, and goes like, ‘Mum, my friends said…’ And they’re very inquisitive.
“I don’t think it’s (playing nude scenes) something I want to do to make my kids question me in any way or have something in their mind that they want to ask and they can’t.
“My sense of maturity is better, my judgments are better. Some of the errors I made in the past are things that I wouldn’t do now. Some choices I made back then I wouldn’t make now.”
Johnson and Odianosen Okojie, her husband, had recently announced that they’re expecting a fourth child, adding that they had earlier reached a consensus to give up on childbearing.
