The 38-year-old actress, who was a force to be reckoned with in the movie industry and took many movie roles regardless of how scandalous they were in the early years of her career, said there’s a lot at stake for her now because she is married with kids so she can not afford to play suggestive roles anymore.

Speaking further, Mercy Johnson revealed that her 9-year-old daughter, Purity, is very curious about her past and sometimes google her name to know more about her past.

Her words,

“When I do that, what would the younger girls do? When you grow past a certain level, you try to go ahead and do better. For me, you don’t need people to tell you what’s right or wrong

“Age is telling on me. I’ve grown past that level, I’m answerable to too many people: my husband and my kids. I hate to embarrass them in any way. My daughter is growing.

“She gets hold of my phone sometimes, begins to google, and goes like, ‘Mum, my friends said…’ And they’re very inquisitive.

“I don’t think it’s (playing nude scenes) something I want to do to make my kids question me in any way or have something in their mind that they want to ask and they can’t.

“My sense of maturity is better, my judgments are better. Some of the errors I made in the past are things that I wouldn’t do now. Some choices I made back then I wouldn’t make now.”
