Being a Nollywood actress 'used to be' a thing of prestige and pride back in the day when the industry was booming but right now, young actress are allegedly asked to kiss a**es just to get roles or continue their reign on screne.

Most actresses say their profession is simply to entertain and make ends meet like any other career person and we do agree - seeing how succesfull their colleagues in Hollywood are doing. They've also continued to insist, such rumours are what they are - RUMOURS!!!  So we ask our MEN if they can marry these 'TV Stars' now that they say they just "do their jobs' nothing else"? Here are some of heir responses:

"Its silly to think actresses are prostitutes. They just do their jobs like any professional out there. If you think they are not worthy to be married then you should be living in the stone age." - Ifanyi, Asaba.

"Its just ridiculous to even hear someone say actresses are not be married to. So what what should happen to them? Why do you watch their movies and even recommend some of your friends to watch too? Dont they have something you want?" -  Musa, Abuja

"What actresses do these days is unbelievable. Most of them just use 'Nollywood' as a face but prostitution is what they really do... trust me!" - Emeka, Port Harcourt

"Nollywood actreses are wost professionals I have ever seen. With the exception of probably Joke Silva, Genevieve Nnaji, Dakora Egbuson and Kate Henshaw... the rest are just talentless. They are just good with men. Never will I marry any!" - Gbenga, Lagos

"It's simple - No I Won't Marry A Nollywood Actress! They are useless and very fake and most of them are now bleaching like their lives depends on it." - Julius, Ibadan

"I can marry a Nollywood actress but on one condition - that she tells me every industry person she's slept with and we do HIV/AIDS test every month untill I decide to marry her." - Sunday, Calabar

"Nollywood actresses are just good as sex mates not wife materials and that's me being honest. They are easily influenced by the society and not the real values of life. That's why they get married today and divorce tomorrow." - Michael, Ogun State

"Men should take it easy with these actresses. Men think they are just meant to be dated which is very disrespectful They are human beings with feelings and needs. They make mistakes which they can correct if they are being told. So yes, I can marry an actres." - Seun, Lagos

"I don't see any reason why men won't marry an actress? Its ridiculous! It means you too shouldnt be married to. Are they not humans or women. Please" - Wale, Lagos

"Genevieve Nnaji I want to marry you please... please... please... That's how much I would marry a Nollywood actress. All hypocrites can die for all I care." - Bassey, Akwa Ibom.
