“Hollywood told me that in order for you to be an actor, you have to do partial body nudity, and I had to choose career or Christ,” said 58-year-old Arnett in a Facebook Live interview with Miami pastor, Diego Calderon.
“I chose Christ, but when I did, I lost everything,” the Haitian-born actor said.
Arnett, who acted in productions like Meet the Browns (2009), Stand Your Ground(2013), and Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987), eventually was asked to do partial nudity in a film role, which he refused, even when they offered to use a body double.
“All hell broke loose. I lost everything,” Arnett said. “Agents left. Everybody left. Friends left. I was left behind by the world and by everything that I had.”
