Kanye West is full of respect for model Selita Ebanks after working with the beauty on his new film RUNAWAY - because she believed in his vision when everyone else was abandoning the project.
The Gold Digger hitmaker shot the 35-minute movie over the summer (10) in Prague, Czech Republic - but admits he struggled to get the picture into production because of a lack of funding.
And he's thankful for Ebanks for waiting around until he was ready to shoot.
He tells MTV show The Seven, "What I admire so much about her is she stuck with me when producers were pulling out. We didn't have money, we had a problem without the money, (but) she stuck there and said, 'Well, I believe in you.'"
However, Ebanks confesses she almost didn't sign up to star in the film, which chronicles West's fictitious relationship with a girl who becomes a phoenix from outer space - because she wasn't prepared to go naked.
She says, "I must say I was a little hesitant, only because originally the phoenix was meant to be nude, and as a woman we all have our insecurities and I was like, 'No sir, that's not gonna happen!'"
But the model is happy she took on the role - and the filming experience was a relaxed one: "It was super easy, there was no director's chair, no yelling."
Runaway premieres on MTV on Saturday night (23Oct10).
