Nollywood actress Ini Edo has denied news making the rounds that she is a hater of men- a report which has been making the rounds of late.
According to the actress who said she has absolute respect for men, she was quoted out of context during an interview where she was merely emphasising the role of a character in the movie – a man who had turned relationship and marriage into business.
The actress who issued an official press statement over the matter said; “It has come to my attention a news report on SUN Newspapers which was further promoted by Instablog9ja where I was alleged to have bashed men. I wish to categorically state that I have no hate whatsoever for men.
“The said interview was a response to the theme of my joint movie with Uche Jombo, Heaven On My Mind. I was merely emphasising the role of a character in the movie – a man who had turned relationship and marriage into business.
“I do not know how the part where I mentioned the movie was removed or edited and this is why I am setting the record straight. I was only referencing the theme of my new movie, #HeavenOnMyMind which will be released at the cinemas from December 7,” she added.
