Bored interviewer with boring interviewee...what a good dose of YAWN. Raking so much in and not able to say just one charity you align with? You give back by recommendation? Yeah, very intelligent she is... NOT!!!

Didn't she know of this interview before hand? Wasn't she prepped?? Who handles her PR???

If you wanna play among the big boiz and gurlz like she's indicated then she needs to start doing some serious brushing up 'cause this is a disaster!

You take a shine to Angelina and you are not really big on charity? She was clearly chatting porkies, there.

Inasmuch as I adore Genny, there is a word or two to learn here.

thx!

she looked so pretty. you coould tell she was nervous. awww....missed some of her answers cos she spoke too fast. its the nerves. i think she doesnt like to talk much cos she is always very straight forward with her answers.
She did speak a little too fast. There are a few things she needs to learn about interviewing. Thats why I have insisted that she open up more. Am an introvert myself and you will not know your flaws until others point them out. They can't point them out when you are closed up. Obviously she is not as perfect as some of her fans want us to believe. But this is a start. She should watch herself and learn something. I hope. And why does she frown in the forehead like that?? Does not look good. It makes the viewer uncomfortable. You wonder if there is something she is not sayin.

see the poster's Angelina and charity (giving back) arguement.

Ruddy, i also have reservations about her responses and understand what Irinajoeda was saying up there! Genny was a bit panicky and i wonder why "claiming" one charity could not flash in her mind especially if she is a dyed in the wool fan of Angelina who is known to be busy with Charity services. It happens anyway!!!

She was panicky because she was a little nervous. So what? Come on you guys! Who wouldn't be? Even I was nervous watching the interview hoping she doesn't make any mistake. It's a lot of pressure to be on the world stage, trust me on that. It's like going in for the biggest job interview of your life, and millions of people are peeping at you thru the keyhole........its not easy y'all.
...I mean, a little bit of criticism or advice is in order, but to come out and call her unintelligent?...like Irinajoeda did is totally uncalled for.

She did say somethingu abt giving her honest contribution. And she does give to charity. She just chooses not to braodcast it in the interview. Hence the statement. She wasn't boring to me. I loved dt tyat she smiled a lot without killing it. The interviewer chose general questions hence the replies. The only thing is dt she rushed some of her replies so u had to catch somethings she said. I wonder if the interview ws timed cos even the interviewer ws rushing too.

@least we kno she doesn't get botox. Lol..no really, its just her facial expression and it didn't make me uncomfortable. Rather, it made her look more human. I loved her accent and the way she carried herself. And how she laughed at certain things altho the interviewer didn't return the gesture often if ever. I think he was boring which affected her answers and added to her nerves. Either tht or he too was nervous in her presence. I mean, she is beautiful.

Well, first of all... The Bible says that if you give to charity, you should do it in secret and not try to get kudos for it. Personally, I am very skeptical of these Hollywood philanthropists who feel the need to broadcast all the good work they do so we can all praise them for being wonderful people.

Secondly, can I say I have always HATED when interviewers pose that "how are you giving back" question to celebrities as if it's some sort of obligation? If someone has worked hard to achieve something, it's their own accomplishment and not something that everybody has to share in.

It reminds me of when I go home and all kinds of distant relatives I don't even know and random people come looking for a handout, demanding in so many words that I "give back" to the community because I've supposedly done so well in obodo onyibo. But I can't "give BACK" to someone who didn't give me anything in the first place! What did these people give me? If anything, a lot of these folks were the ones who tried to discourage me when I had certain ambitions, so I don't think I owe them jack. The people I *might* owe are my parents, maybe one of my uncles and two or three of my teachers... Anybody else, if I feel like giving them something, I will. But it's not mandatory.

It would be admirable if Genevieve decided to use all her fame and money to build orphanages and tar the roads of her hometown, but she doesn't HAVE to. The only thing she OWES her fans is

a) to continue to make entertaining movies that will be worth their money
b) to be courteous and respectful of them

Anything else is extra.

All that said, I don't think the interview was that great. As already mentioned, she came off a bit nervous and uncomfortable, and she didn't say too much that was particularly enlightening. But the fact that she was called to do the interview at all remains an achievement in itself.

She said that she admires Angelina Jolie as an ACTRESS, not that she is interested in emulating every aspect of Angelina's life.

Do you also expect her to wear a vial of blood around her neck, steal another actress's husband, adopt gazillion kids, not talk to her father for years and announce that she is bisexual if she is truly going to live up to the title of "the Angelina Jolie of Nigeria"? :)
