What do men want from actress Mercy Little Smith? She is convinced that it is her well-endowed backside that attract so much male attention. “I don’t know what my bum does to them”, the 32 year-old actress told Showbiz, “when they see me, they go crazy.
“The other day; a man who was watching me from his car veered off the road and nearly run his car into someone because of my buttocks”, Mercy Little Smith who prefers to be called Little said. Known for movies Will Of The Gods, No Shaking, For Better For War and Power Of The Gods, Little said she is often too shy to step out of her home especially during day time because of her backside. “Sometimes, I wish I were slim but that is how God created me and there is nothing I can do about my figure. “At age 15, I had sugar daddies including married men running after me. My father was very worried and sometimes had to pull a gun to scare them off.
The pressure from men was so much that I had to give in to one of them with whom I became pregnant when I was in the secondary school”, Little revealed.
According to her, even now that she is a mother of two, men still chase her. “Any day that I decide to walk on the streets, I have not less than 15 men wanting to either talk to me or take my phone number and I wonder what I have that other women don’t have. “I know I am beautiful in my own way but another plus that I have been blessed with is the fact that I rarely fall sick.”, she said.
About marriage, the divorcee said she was not in a hurry to find another man. “I have been married before and things were not that smooth for me and now that I am divorced, I really want to take my time before I go into marriage again.” Speaking about how she became an actress, Little who said she had always dreamt of becoming an actress but did not know how to approach it until she had a call from movie producer Nana Nkrumah who tried her in one of his roles and since then, other movie producers have given her roles in their movies.
Little has had the fortune of acting alongside stars in the industry such as Agya Koo, John Dumelo, Jackie Appiah, Martha Ankomah, Mercy Asiedu, Gloria Safo and Wayosi.
She expressed regret that her big figure sometimes disqualify her from playing certain roles which she would have loved to play. After appearing in commercials for Play Boy, Pusher, Atinka Coffee and Capital 02 , it is Little’s wish to become a brand ambassador for a reputable company.
