We were happy, young people in love but we really didn’t get a chance to really know ourselves. . . somewhere along the line, family members kept coming in saying “oh no, she’s an actress…” I will be there and people will be saying all kinds of stuff and sending him messages saying I am in another man’s car even though I was right there with him…” – Juliet Ibrahim
