So what would say our newly married guest in this exclusive interview? Our Turkish guest who abandoned fashion design to devote herself to her real passion acting, found a new love from a flesh and blood this time, in the person of the actor Onur Saylak with whom she get married last July.
Tuba who is known as very reserved with reference to her private life, did not use, as usual, the right of veto against our questions; but she talked about her love and her husband even if she did it in a succinct way. First of all, we tried to know the secret of her popularity in Arab world, so we asked her: What does it mean to you that you have become a symbol in the Arab world, where the public does not even know your language? What is the secret in your opinion? I think that what is offered by those projects catch the interest and the feelings of people in the Middle East, especially the Arabs.
In the end, we live in the same area and we have the same feelings and the same problems and we experience similar living conditions; and therefore, the stories and the emotions we present in our series are universal themes and feelings.
As for me, it is a great honour to be loved by Arab people and to benefit from this considerable support out of my country. This is a blessing for me, Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I am Turkish and I know very well the specificity of the audience in my country and how it deals with the projects presented. But I do not know the Arabs, how they deal with our series and their habits in watching TV, so I do not know whether it will succeed without dubbing or not.
In a previous interview with Snob Magazine, you have said that you would like to learn Arabic, where is that wish now? But I know a few words and short sentences and phrases. On the other hand, there is no need to become a singer since there are so many talented and professional singers who have wonderful voices.
And the chemistry between the actors is very important for any acting project since without it, the public will not believe us and the project will not succeed. Also, both actors differ from each other in their character and their way of performing. Personally, I love and get attached to each character I perform and every role I play.
Is the dispute still ongoing? And why, in your opinion, he said what he said? We heard about a joint Arab - Turkish movie in which you are the leading actress. How true is that? It has also been said there is series project which brings you together with the most prominent Arabs and Turkish stars?
But as a matter of principle, I do not mind at all participating in a project of this kind. The most important thing for me has been always the quality of what I present and the story it deals with. Is it true you're considering buying a house in an Arab country, is likely to be Lebanon? Also, the idea has not been raised for me so far. But this is not true at all. He is, in my opinion, one of the best actors in Turkey and the most important of them currently. There is nothing else but love.
I have my own way that I am taking. We were good and very close friends for nearly five years. Does he have the characteristics that you were wishing for your life partner? It is just love, and nothing else. Why did you decide to marry in total secrecy in France, which has disappointed your fans who were expecting a public celebration? The number of guests in the wedding has not extended twenty people.
Is it true that you are pregnant with twin girls, and that you have been obliged to cancel many projects because of pregnancy? You have previously stated to Snob Magazine that you are absolutely against plastic surgery? Do you still have the same opinion? I cannot find any justification for those who resort to it. I still consider that the greatest grace is that I am at peace with my body and my soul. I repeat my advice to everyone that they also have to be at peace with their bodies and their souls.
What added to your fame and stardom, the fact that you are Pantene ambassador for two years respectively? Personally I used Pantene and I am very satisfied with its products and the technology it adopts; both of us are enjoying working with each other because both of us understand the other one and because we share the same values.
As the ambassador of Pantene, how did you take care of your hair to preserve your image? So, after washing it with shampoo I always put the conditioner and the special care cream. Through these steps, I get the best result from each product. But there are a lot of beautiful women; and I have enough intelligence to realize that beauty alone is nothing at all, and it has no value! My advice to women is to ascertain this.
If I rely solely on my beauty without intelligence and talent, my charm will fade and disappear when I start speaking. What hobbies are still dreams for you? And, I still wish to act on stage, as well as to design the stage and its decoration.
