She said, “Everybody I met when I was a young person was useless, and I regret meeting them. That might be because I am too real. I cannot stand a lot of them, and I don’t care how they see me.

“Women should keep striving hard. Nobody should tell you what to do with your money. Things are changing gradually, even though we are not fully there yet. I am proud of the females currently making waves in the industry.”

According to Halima, many men in the entertainment industry viewed women as mere sex objects, rather than capable professionals.

She said, “Men have a bad notion about women in the industry. They downgrade women, especially the young ones that are trying to make it. They see women as sex objects. Many of them feel that women are not capable of doing good jobs.”

The thespian also stated that cabals were destroying the industry, “If a lady decides to do a movie, she will hear things like, ‘She thinks she has grown’. A friend could even be the one to throw one under the bus, spilling secrets one does not want people to know.”
