I won’t spend on any man – Actress Vivian Jill

imagesKumasi-Based movie actress, Vivian Jill Lawrence, is not the kind of woman who is likely to spend a pesewa on her lover man and she makes that very clear when responding to questions about her choice of man.

According to her, she is very stingy when it comes to giving out money to her man.

“I don’t think I can spend my money on any man no matter how much I love him and no matter how broke he may be,” she told Showbiz last Saturday.

“Whatever money I make now is for the upkeep of myself and my son and also for my future. Probably, the most I can do for my man in terms of spending will be providing him with food and drink but not cash,” Vivian said with a laugh.

Popular for a string of movies including Kayayo, Ama Ghana, Sekina, Rebecca, Adom, Asew Red Card and Daakye Asem, Vivian revealed that she is single because she had not yet met the right man she wants to settle down with.

She said many men had come her way and she often sends them away. Vivian who was born to a Scottish father and a Ghanaian mother said that she finds it rather easy breaking up relationship with men.

“Although I am very caring and give all the attention to my man whenever I find myself in a relationship, it is simple for me to say it is over. I often do that through text messages, WhatsApp or on Facebook. Usually, when I tell them it is over, the men think I am joking until I start avoiding them, and then they realize I am serious.”

“My friends tell me I am crazy when it comes to breaking up with boyfriends but the fact is, I am a principle person and never want to be taken for granted. I will not allow a man to kill me before my time. If I feel I don’t find you interesting again, you will go” the mother of 16 year-old son said.

Although Vivian says she is bidding her time until Mr. Right shows up, she says her family and friends continue to mount pressure on her to settle down especially now that she is making money from her acting career.

“They are mounting pressure on me to settle down because they think I have what it takes to marry. I have tried several times to tell them that marriage is a gift from God but they are not convinced.

Because of her stand-off stance, Vivian is sometimes tagged as a lesbian but when she was asked, she denied it.

Vivian Jill who started her acting career five years ago has acted alongside actors Agya Koo, Lil Win, Emelia Brobbey, Bill Asamoah, Kyeiwaa and Nana Ama McBrown.

She said she was grateful to colleague actor, Bill Asamoah, for giving her the encouragement when she went through challenges in the early stages of her acting career.
