Nollywood stars scared of being poisoned on set – Actress Ruth Eze spills

Nigerian actress, Ruth Eze has revealed that there is an apprehension that usually grips Nollywood actors on set which is why they do not eat their colleagues’ food.

She said most movie stars buy or come along with their own food whenever they are shooting a film because they are apparently scared of being poisoned by someone.

Eze made the shocking revelation during a recent interview with The Punch as she noted that a lot of people in Nollywood don’t like themselves.

She said; “A lot of people don’t like to see others, especially in Nollywood in the eastern part of the country. We don’t like one another. I cannot expose my relationship, or who I am in love with.

“There is no actor in Nollywood, especially in Asaba (Delta State), that one would buy food for on set and they would eat. Everybody is scared, because of how dangerous that side is. When one goes for any production, one is usually scared. So, in order to be careful, one has to buy one’s food.”

The thespian further said that she cannot marry a male colleague because of the disreputable way they behave on set.

According to Eze, actors usually get visits from female fans, and they do inappropriate things with them on set including the ones that are married.

She said; “I can never marry a colleague. I can marry a filmmaker, but not an actor. If you see the things they do on set while filming, even the married ones, you wouldn’t want to have anything to do with them. Other girls come to look for them, and some even bring food.

“Imagine filming in Enugu and your family is in Asaba; you would see girls bringing food to them on set. Imagine being in love with such an actor and witnessing that. The only colleague I would have loved to get married to is already married”.
