Lala Anthony got people talking when she went topless for racy sex scenes in Monday night’s episode of the hit series Power.
The actress had nothing at all on top as she and co-star Joseph Sikora got into a steamy sex session. The scenes saw Lala’s character LaKeisha Graham get really intimate with Tommy Egan in what is being seen as the drama’s raunchiest scene.
The scenes raised brows but Lala defended going topless. Speaking on the 105.1 FM’s The Breakfast Club show, Lala said:
“I want to address this once and for all. The problem is people don’t know how to separate Lala from LaKeisha—that’s my character on Power. My character is currently in a relationship with Tommy, and when you’re in a relationship, you have sex and you take your top off. You don’t have sex fully clothed. If I am a true actor, then that’s what I’m going to do.”
She admits she previously warned her estranged husband Carmelo about the scenes but says they haven’t addressed them since.
“I try not to bring it up,” she said when asked if she has addressed the sex scenes with the father of her son.
Lala and Carmelo separated earlier this year after 13 years together, because he allegedly impregnated another woman.
