In Dry Tears, Anita addresses challenges of being celebrity
In what seems like a deliberate attempt to address the challenges of being a celebrity, especially in Nigeria, actress Anita Keyss has completed work on her latest movie, Dry Tears.
The movie, which centers on the lives of celebrities, is the third major production from Anita, the first two being Beauty of the Mind and Silver Spoon.
Speaking ahead of the release of Dry Tears, Anita frowned at the rate at which nudity is taking over the movie industry, adding, “For me I think it’s crazy; you don’t have to expose your body for you to be popular; it doesn’t make sense to me. If you believe in yourself you know you have the talent, you don’t have to expose your body just to get fame. Look at the likes of Omotola, the likes of Genevieve, they didn’t open themselves to get fame; they worked hard and it’s paying off. So, I don’t think you need to expose your body when you just feel, ‘oh, I’m not relevant anymore.’ It’s crazy for me, that what’s they call depression. It means you don’t believe in your talent, you believe in your nakedness to make it out there, to give you that fame.”
On the challenges being faced by celebrities, especially with demands from their fans, the actress said, “I don’t think celebrities should live for their fans; it’s all about you doing what you feel you are comfortable with. It’s just about you believing in yourself and you doing what you are comfortable with; in this world, you can’t please everybody. So, it’s about you pleasing yourself and doing what you feel, ‘yes this is good, I am comfortable with this am doing.’ That’s just it. Don’t live your life for anybody, live it for yourself,” she admonished.
