“I’ve grown passed that level” – Mercy Johnson on why she stopped kissing in movies

Nollywood actress has reiterated in an interview the reason she has stopped playing romantic roles in movies.

Speaking to Goldmyne TV in an interview, Mercy Johnson said she is not a mature person who is answerable to a lot of people.

“When I do that, what would the younger girls do? When you grow past a certain level, you try to go ahead and do better. For me, you don’t need people to tell you what’s right or wrong,” she said.

“Age is telling on me. I’ve grown past that level, I’m answerable to too many people: my husband and my kids. I hate to embarrass them in any way. My daughter is growing.

“She gets hold of my phone sometimes, begins to google, and goes like, ‘Mum, my friends said…’ And they’re very inquisitive.

“I don’t think it’s (playing nude scenes) something I want to do to make my kids question me in any way or have something in their mind that they want to ask and they can’t.

“My sense of maturity is better, my judgments are better. Some of the errors I made in the past are things that I wouldn’t do now. Some choices I made back then I wouldn’t make now.”

Mercy Johnson is known for roles in movies like ‘Heart of a Fighter’, ‘The Maid’, ‘Weeping Soul’, ‘Royal Tears’, among others.
