In an interview monitored by gistmaster.com , Genevieve declared her waist as the best part of her body. ” I like my waist because it’s small and neat and gives me my hourglass figure” Genevieve told New African woman magazine.
Genevieve who started acting at the age of 8,when she starred in ripples , a soap running on TV in the late 80s/early 90s, says she did not set out to be famous she just wanted to act and exhibit her creative talent but mother luck smiled on her
How she tells the fake friends from the real ones, Genevieve said, “At first it was difficult but now I have developed automatic radar to detect fakers and get rid of them before they can even say my name”
“The industry is full of fake people, which is why it’s so important for me to have true people around me and my family and friends. I can count my friends on one hand with Vicky being my oldest friend. We share everything together and she comes everywhere with me” Genevieve poured out her mind confidently
“When the camera stops rolling I go back to whom I really am. I am a different person when there are no cameras, when I am by myself I am very reserved and so are my friends.
The 32 year old actress and single mother of one says she would love to star in a movie alongside Johnny Depp and also have a man like him in her life.
“I find him a very deep actor, mostly because he represents what I represent, he acts for himself and he picks out roles that he enjoys. It’s not about the movie being commercial”.
On her ideal man, Genevieve answered, “Well, we all want a handsome man, but ultimately we want one that is good inside. But I would love to meet someone with a Johnny Depp personality and with Boris Kodjo’s lips.Perhaps, Dbanj who is being speculated to be in a relationship with Genevieve is still somewhere near this.
Though many feels, Genevieve didn’t make much impact with her St. Genevieve clothing line, which she launched in 2008, she says she still want to do more in fashion. At the moment, she is setting off her Denim Jeans line.
” I design simple clothes using African prints and I design for the confident woman who loves to look beautiful. But I am also a bit of a tomboy and I have loads of jeans, which inspired me to design my own collection. I just love jeans and how it can make you look relaxed yet elegant if you know how to pull it off” Genevieve said.
She mentioned that she had been designing since primary school and she would definitely love to do more in the fashion world.
Genny says despite all her achievements, she is yet to be satisfied. According to her she won’t stop until she gets the Oscar.
