Exclusive! Why I hate watching my sex scenes- Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde

Nollywood's super star, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, who has been away from the movie scene for a while, is back with a more challenging movie.
Starring in Alter Ego, Omotola, takes on a role which sees her acting out erotic sex scenes with Wole Ojo.
She tells Goldenpearlmedia how her husband felt about the sex addict character and she despises watching her own sex scenes on the screen.

'‘Some of the sex scenes in Alter Ego were downplayed because I’m married . But I won’t play the sex scenes if it wasn’t necessary to be included in the film. I know by starring in this movie that my fans would either hate me or love me forever.

While shooting the film, I knew I was doing something quite risky. There are several ways to shoot a sex scene tastefully. I’m all for playing a sex scene convincingly and my husband knows this.
I told my husband, ‘You know what darling, you married an actor’; and secondly, he is my biggest fan. ‘Do you want me to be great or do you just want me to be good?’ He will say, ‘I want you to be great, sparkling great’. Then I’ll say, ‘Ehen, we go love o’ and he’s fine with it.’
Omotola also implied she would not be bothered by any criticisms that may come from shooting those raunchy scenes.

‘When I wasn’t even confident, I starred in a movie called a prostitute, which was released 22 years ago. If I didn’t die then, is it now? I’m ready.’

The mother of four continued, expressing her displeasure watching her own sex scenes.
"I don't watch myself on the screen. If i do, i'll feel like burning inside. I might even start crying. Because I criticize myself a lot. Sometimes, I pity those seating and watching. Especially, when I poorly do a sex scene. I would be like 'what was that for?. It can kill the whole movie when it's poorly done. 

For me, if a sex scene is not going to be well done, then why do it in the first place? If you must kiss, you should be able to kiss well. Make it professional."

Omo sexy, as she is fondly called by colleagues also justified her three-year break from the movie scene assuring her fans that she is back for good.

‘I got to that point when I felt like nothing was challenging me anymore and I began to feel like my standard was dropping. I went through that period and I knew I needed to stay away and wait for Nollywood to catch up with some of our ideas.
‘So I starred in movies that I thought could hold forth for me while I concentrate on other things like building my business.
‘Coming back was hard for me because I was aiming for that movie that would challenge. I got a lot of scripts and none of them filled that gap. I could have taken up some of them for the sake of money. But I have gone past that point.’
