Miera Liyana might only be 20 years old, but she had already made a name for herself for having a preference for the bold and daring, at least to the Malaysian point of view.
Previously, Miera, who was only 18 at the time, became the subject of animosity when she wore a revealing gown which exposed her sideboobs to an awards show. She later apologized to the public, then put the blame on the designer.
Now, reports are making rounds that the often-scantily clad actress did a sexy bikini scene in a scene of her latest movie, Dendam Orang Mati.
The horror film,starring Fizz Fairuz and Lisa Surihani, is set to be released in cinemas on Oct. 23.
Commenting on the controversial scene, Miera admitted she has no regrets.
“I can’t stop people from talking about me, and I was still ‘new’ at the time.”
“They gave me the task and I took it as a challenge. It will be a shame to say ‘no’ without making an effort to try.”
Miera also described her experience as ‘a breeze’ and she does not feel the slightest embarrassed parading her hardware to her co-stars, especially Fizz Fairuz, whom she regarded as an older sibling.
“He’s like a brother to me, so it won’t be awkward for him to see me in a bikini. I don’t think he minds too much,” she said.
Being an actress may have its luxuries but it also comes with a share of struggle, sacrifice and compromises. From a distance, a celebrity’s life may look glamorous and fun, but only they know what they go through to get there.
Whether or not Miera realized that she was being exploited, she has all theÂ potential and qualities to become an even bigger star without having to resort to unnecessary sexual roles. It is high time she strive in the game with her talent and beauty, so that she gets the appreciation and respect she deserves.MYNEWSHUB/Text: Sara Khalid
