LOS ANGELES — Adult star Vicky Vette has landed a starring role in an upcoming campy mainstream Indonesian horror movie set for release July 7.
Vette will appear in a “clothed non-sex role” in "Pacu Hantar Periwan," loosely translated as “Virgin Ghost's Girlfriend” and works alongside FHM model Misa Campo and Dewi Persik, an Indonesian actress making headlines for reportedly undergoing hymen restoration to restore her virginity.
"Yes, the role is the typical scantily clad busty chick in a horror flick, but to the Indonesian people it means a lot more. While I am not going to be bringing home any Oscars for Best Performance in a Foreign Film, I like to think I am doing something towards promoting healthy attitudes towards sexuality and adult material in other parts of the world that restrict adult entertainment,” Vette said.
The adult star is the third performer to star in an Indonesian adult movie along with Tera Patrick and Sasha Grey. She said the role is likely to cause a controversial buzz considering Indonesia’s ban on porn that includes blocked websites and Blackberry users.
Vette noted that a well-known Indonesian singer, Ariel Irham, aka “Peterporn,” was recently imprisoned for more than three years after his private sex video surfaced on the Internet. And that the editor of Playboy’s Indonesian magazine was just released from a two-year prison term for distributing a non-nude version of the magazine.
Vette said she has regularly made headlines in the Indonesian mainstream media for her outspoken Twitter opinions about freedom of speech and expression.
“The producer is taking real risks in making movies like this," she said. "I understand his home was recently pelted with eggs and he was threatened with physical harm. For some strange but cool reason I have a lot of fans in Indonesia. By doing the movie, I am able to do something that they can watch even though everything else I do is blocked by the government. Honestly, it was kind of strange doing a movie where I had to keep my clothes on. I asked for the role of the virgin in the movie but the producers it was too much of a stretch … he he."
The film's trailer can be seen on Vette's YouTube page.
