Nollywood actress Bukola Arugba has spoken amidst her marital challenges with colleague and husband, Damola Olatunji.
Bukola Arugba, on Instagram, shared a caption in which she spoke about how her life as an actress is different from real life.
The mother of twins, a boy and a girl, lamented the struggles she faced daily as an actress, revealing the hurtful words hurled by those who do not understand her profession.
Bukola Arugba also speaks on behalf of her colleagues, stating they have a private life outside their job and they are normal humans too.
She wrote, “One of the most hurtful parts of being an Actor is when your real life tears are interpreted as Acting. When you are told; “I see you do exact same thing in movies”,. Is my life a movie?
“I am human, I laugh, I smile, I love, I hurt, I cry, too, just like you too. As you got your private life outside your job, so do I.
“I feel your real life pains and comfort you with my movies. But u disregard mine, and tag it “unserious pretense” or “ACTING”. Is my life a movie?
“I cry I expect a hug n comfort, but I get a “when you are done acting, let us know” kind of reaction.
Life is more challenging for an interpreter of real life events. Cos when true life events happen to you, they see it as a movie.
‘SPEAKING THE MINDS OF MY FELLOW THESPIANS who are just true, plain and pure in heart.”
