A Cambodian actress has been banned from making movies for a year because the country’s culture bosses say she is too sexy.

Denny Kwan, who does not agree with the claim, insists that her roles are not erotic but promised to be less sexy when posting on social media.

“I will now try not to be sexy as I usually am when I post on Facebook,” Kwan said.

The 24-year-old, 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, Kwan said that her movie roles were nothing like the erotic roles played by other actresses.

Chamroeun Vantha, chief of the disciplinary council, said Kwan was punished because she failed to respect a written promise she made with the ministry not to dress in a sexy way.

Pon Putborei, a spokesperson for the ministry of women’s affairs, said that as a public figure, Kwan does not have the right to wear whatever she wants.

“She needs to be careful with our culture,” he said.

The council members also barred Kwan from participating in any activity in the entertainment industry for the duration of her ban.
