It’s possible to have male best bestie without sex, says Arike Gold

Nollywood actress, Folorunsho Adeola, popularly known as Arike Gold, is not in support with the widely held notion that male and female best friends usually end up having sex with each other.

She made this known while speaking in an interview with Journalists, she said, “Yes, it is possible to have a male best friend and not get intimate. I have plenty male friends and we are close, yet there is nothing intimate between us. Not all male and female ‘besties’ have sex with one another. However, I only trust my friendship with my male friends.”

On how she handles romantic advances from her male fans, Gold said, “I cannot date all of them. I see it as a normal thing. Most of them don’t even want to date one. They just like one and want to be one’s friends.”

The fashionable role interpreter also noted that actors should not be judged based on the roles they play. She said, “Does that mean any actor that plays the role of a doctor in a movie can treat people in real life? If an actor plays the role of a thief in a movie, that does not mean the person is a thief in real life. It doesn’t work that way. Most actors are the opposite of the roles they play in movies.”

The actress also stated that every movie role comes with its own challenges. She said, “I feel every role is tough. It is only God that can make it easy for one. It is not easy trying to be who one is not.”
