Movies of Wednesday, 6 April 2011
Sensational actress Baby Blanch, who is playing a lead role in new movie titled “What Sex Can Do” has threatened to take action against controversial movie producer, Socrate Safo, over a scene in the new movie where she was made to shave her pubic hair in front of the camera and to the full glare of the cast and crew present on set, as part of the movie.
According to Baby, she had an opportunity to watch the movie at the editing stage and she didn’t like what she saw as to how her private part has been exposed in the yet to be released movie. The “Hot Fork” actress is therefore insisting that Socrate should take the whole shaving scene from the movie before it is released on the market. “I went to Socrate’s office in New Town to watch some parts of the movie while they were editing, and how I saw me is not good at all for myself and the public. The editing has really changed what we shot on set. It is too much. I told Socrate I don’t agree and I can’t allow this to come out, so he should take that scene out because, I mean, it will tarnish my image”.
Asked whether she was not aware when they shooting, Baby said “Yes I was aware but what we shot is not what I saw and I knew that the movie will go through editing so that if there is any scene the producer or the artiste is not comfortable with it will be taken off, and I am not happy at all with what I saw so I want Socrate to take it off”. As to how far her private part was exposed Blanch said she cannot give a vivid description but “If you ask me to describe it in one word I will say it is very serious. I can’t say which particular part of my body was showing but all I can say is that I am not comfortable with what I saw, and it is not good for the eyes of the public.”
She said Socrate is being reluctant about taking out the scene from the movie because he thinks she is being difficult and is over- dragging issues probably because she was when injured on set Socrate refused to take care of her. But Baby, who twisted her leg on location in the course shooting, said it is not because of that, “I just don’t want to see that shaving scene in the movie”.
Asked what action she would take should Socrate refuse to take out the scene and subsequently releases the movie onto the market, she said “Well I don’t know but I have told him my mind and hope that he will listen and respect my rights. So I am just waiting to see what he will do, whether he will still go ahead and release the movie with all those scenes. Then I will know what to do next”.
