Remember that story a few weeks ago, in which it was reported Stacy Keibler asked to do a nude scene in an independent movie? Well apparently, it’s not true. Stacy told her side of the story in a recent interview:
Stacy Keibler shot down a recent story on tmz.com that said she lobbied to do a nude scene in the upcoming film Mercy, but then turned down the role after director Patrick Hoelck acquiesced.
â€œI got an offer for the movie Mercy, and then they asked if I was comfortable with nudity, and I said no, Iâ€™m actually not,â€ Keibler, calling from Vancouver, British Columbia, told me earlier this week. â€œSo I just politely declined because they really were adamant about the nudity part of that, and I was just like, â€˜Iâ€™m sorry. Thatâ€™s just not something Iâ€™m interested in exploring at this time.â€™
â€œIâ€™ve been offered to do Playboy and things over and over again. Why would I do something like that for this small little movie? It was basically just a simple phone call, and I was like, â€˜Thank you, but no thank you.â€™ The other thing is that I have a deal with ABC and Disney, and I have to go to them and get approval on everything I do. Thatâ€™s just not even something that we would take to them.â€
Keibler said she laughed when she found out about the story on TMZâ€™s web site.
â€œAnyone that knows me or knows my personality should have laughed at that just as I did,â€ the actress and former WWE diva said. â€œI donâ€™t know if it was just a small little movie that wanted to get some publicity so they threw something out there or what. I think itâ€™s just a clear example that you canâ€™t believe everything you read.â€
Unless, of course, you read it on Ring Posts. â€œExactly,â€ Keibler said with a laugh. â€œAnything thatâ€™s coming from me, it will be true if itâ€™s coming from you.â€
Meanwhile Stacy has lined up her next gig – a series on ABC Family. The Keib, who has a talent holding deal with ABC will be playing a supporting role in the series Samurai Girl premiering this fall. Given ABC Family’s track record for hit shows in recent years (Kyle XY, Greek to name a couple) , this really could be Stacy’s breakout role as an actress. Whether she rises to the challenge with her acting chops remains to be seen.
