“I love the story. I love the story of coming back. I love the story of finding yourself again.

It’s not such a happy ending, but then, in life, you don’t always have happy endings. So, I loved that. And then I loved that it had a love twist to it. All of those elements were just very beautiful to me. “

Tiwa discussed the spicy scenes, how she sometimes forgot she and her co-star were not dating, and how it was bizarre when her real-life boyfriend was on set.

“I have a love interest in this movie and sometimes, if we’re like on set, I’d have to remember “that is not your boyfriend Tiwa” [laughs]. You need to calm down. And then my real-life boyfriend at the time would come on set and I would be like “what is he doing here?” [laughs]. We’re not together anymore though, so he can hear this.

The first day on set I had was my kissing scene. I’m glad it was my first day because I just went right into it. I remember in my dressing room, I brushed my teeth like five, six times because I was like I need to represent. But, he was very lovely. All of the cast was. They were really really nice.”
