Tanya van Graan upset over nude pics from movie

Model Tanya van Graan said she was unhappy that Heat magazine decided to use naked pictures of her. “I am not a wild girl and I’m not a stripper.” The photographs are from clips of the movie Starship Troopers 3: Marauder.

Van Graan, who was FHM’s sexiest woman in 2007, plays the role of Sergeant Sunday in this Hollywood movie, which also stars American actor Casper van Dien. In the scene, which lasts about one minute, Van Graan was seen naked from a strategically placed panel. The scene shows how the “starship troopers” are being cleansed.

Acting passion

Van Graan told Beeld on Thursday that she had tried to get an interdict to prevent the magazine from printing the photographs, but her legal adviser told her she would not succeed as the movie scenes from which they originated, had already been made public. “The photographs were taken out of context and used where they don’t belong.” She also claimed that the magazine refused to show her the clips. As a result, Van Graan said she told them she would not be able to comment. Van Graan said what made her unhappy, was that she was put in a position where she had to explain herself. “People think I’m not an actress, but acting is my passion. People think if a model does nude scenes, it is because they are desperate for an acting career, but it’s not the case. I chose to play in the film and I stand by my choice.” Melinda Shaw, chief editor of Heat, said their legal team and Van Graan’s legal team had spoken before publication.
