The Nigerian entertainment scene has experienced various types of relationships—some good, some bad, and some ugly.
Fans admire celebrities in relationships and marriages, hoping for their lasting happiness. However, we’ve observed that things often turn sour for many celebrities, especially when they struggle to find common ground.
As we continue to witness increasing numbers of celebrities falling in love with one another, actress, Ruth Eze reveals the reason she is reluctant to marry a fellow male actor in the industry.
In an interview with PUNCH Saturday Beats captured by Glamsquad, Ruth Eze stated that she is open to marrying a filmmaker but has ruled out the idea of marrying a fellow actor.
Explaining her reasons, she revealed that actresses, whether single or married, frequently bring food to actors on set, a gesture she considers disrespectful.
Ruth stressed that if the public knew about the off-screen lifestyle of some Nollywood actors during movie shoots, they might reconsider associating with them. She said
“I can never marry a colleague. I can marry a filmmaker, but not an actor. If you see the things they do on set while filming, even the married ones, you wouldn’t want to have anything to do with them. Other girls come to look for them, and some even bring food.
“Imagine filming in Enugu and your family is in Asaba; you would see girls bringing food to them on set. Imagine being in love with such an actor and witnessing that. The only colleague I would have loved to get married to is already married”.
Addressing the importance of privacy in a relationship or marriage, Ruth Eze emphasized the need for a low-key lifestyle, away from social media.
“A lot of people don’t like to see others, especially in Nollywood in the eastern part of the country. We don’t like one another. I cannot expose my relationship, or who I am in love with.
“There is no actor in Nollywood, especially in Asaba (Delta State), that one would buy food for on set and they would eat. Everybody is scared, because of how dangerous that side is. When one goes for any production, one is usually scared. So, in order to be careful, one has to buy one’s food”.
