A Cambodian actress has been banned from making any new movies for a year because the country's cultural bosses say she is 'too sexy'. Denny Kwan, 24, who has appeared in numerous movies, has had a 're-education' session with the Culture and Fine Arts Ministry after it was decided she had violated a code of conduct.
With 300,000 Facebook followers around the world, Miss Kwan said that the parts she played in movies were nothing like the erotic roles played by other actresses.
'In Cambodia, there are many sexy artists. Some are even more than me when shooting, featuring kissing and being erotic,' she said. 'I know it's my right to dress how I want, but our culture, Cambodian people, cannot accept it,' she told the Phnom Penh Post. 'I will now try not to be sexy as I usually am when I post on Facebook.'
She told the Cambodia Daily that when she was first called before culture ministry officials they 'educated me like a daughter', but she had said she had reserved the right to keep dressing as she wished.
The Ministry's code of conduct aims to promote the 'preservation, maintenance of arts, culture, tradition and the identity of the nation' and 'prevent any negative effects of the arts and tradition of the nation.'
Now, for the next 12 months, Miss Kwan must not step in front of any movie camera - a punishment that has caused outrage among freedom and women's groups in the country.
