Actor Kunle Remi has bragged about getting paid to kiss people’s girlfriends and crushes.
The move star said this on the recent episode of the African Time Podcast where he discussed how he handles intimate movie scenes.
According to Kunle, people often tease him about kissing women they fancied.
He said, “People often say to me, ‘You are enjoying o. See how you kissed Sharon, my crush’. First, I get paid to do that (to kiss people’s crushes). Second, the crush is beautiful. Third, there were like 30 people in the room (while shooting the scene).”
Recollecting an awkward kissing scene he was once involved in, the 35-year-old said, “I once shot a romantic scene with a sweet actress, and we already had good chemistry. But, after such a nice kiss, she received a phone call and said, ‘Hey baby, we are done’ (presumably to her boyfriend).
“I was not really expecting anything but (I felt) she should have given us a moment to appreciate the kiss. (To enact that scene), we mentally zoned out all the people that were in the room, and it was so nice.”
