Top Actress Lydia Forson recently had a strange experience with a movie producer. The actress revealed she was rejected from a movie role because of her size – She also slammed those who criticize people based on their body type Popular Ghanaian actress Lydia Forson took to her Instagram page to share how she was rejected from a movie role because the producer did not like her size.

 

She further revealed that the role did not require the actress to have a particular body type; she lost it even after they had concluded negotiations and were just about filming. Read her full post below: “I was rejected NOT because I wasn’t good enough for the role, but because I didn’t fit into the producers idea of what a ‘beautiful’ woman looks like. (mind you I know I’m fcking ) But guess what?  This big a*s and t*ts won me an AFRICA MOVIE ACADEMY AWARD, AFRICA INT. FILM FESTIVAL AWARD, GHANA MOVIE AWARD, SUPER WOMAN AWARD, CITY PEOPLE AWARD, FASHION ICON AWARD and a Your Father is drooling over me MEGA AWARD. . It’s ok if I’m not your cup of tea; just know you’re not my kettle of hot water for my tea either. ☕️ . I don’t have a problem with my body, you do; so go and FIX your problem. I see a lot of people trying to tell me how to feel and react to a situation they’ve never been a part of, first of all I ONLY posted a part of a correspondence, and not what had transpired prior.

As a professional actress I’m well aware that I have to look a part for certain movies which is why we sometimes audition. So it’s really ok if I’m rejected because I’m not what the producer is looking for. But this role didn’t require any of that, also I was already given the role without auditioning because of my body of work; so negotiations were made, and we were ready to start filming. Last minute someone decided to go against everyone because he didn’t think my body size was going to be attractive enough for how se*y, beautiful and romantic the movie was going to be. And please don’t cry for me, I’m really ok. Life and God have been so good to me.”
