Modest Shakira Pulled Out Of Love Story Due To Naked Scene

Subscribe To:

Colombian pop superstar SHAKIRA pulled out of making her movie debut in an adaptation of her "dear friend" GABRIEL GARCIA MARQUEZ's LOVE IN THE TIME OF CHOLERA because the role meant she'd have to appear naked. The modest singer claims scheduling conflicts resulted in her turning down the part in the new film, which was released in America on Friday (16Nov07), but producer Scott Steindorff has another tale to tell. He reveals to the Los Angeles Times that Shakira refused to bare all in her movie debut. And now Shakira states her acting debut will be a carefully considered decision: "The script, the character, the director, it all has to come together to assure me that I'll be protected. "I have a responsibility to my public, so I don't want to get into something that could fail." Shakira didn't completely snub the film adaptation - she wrote and recorded the soundtrack for the movie.
