Adrienne Bailon says playing the character of Vanessa Leon, a devout Christian in the faith-based film “I’m in Love with a Church Girl,” was similar to her own life and hopes the film will spark interest in moviegoers to pursue a relationship with God.
“I’m in Love with a Church Girl” was released earlier this month and tells the true story of a drug dealer who falls in love with a woman in church after living a tumultuous life as a drug trafficker. Rapper Ja Rule plays the character who chases after Leon only to find that she is no easy win because of her religious background. TobyMac, Stephen Baldwin and Vincent Pastore also co-star in the movie.
“I think I have a really similar experience to her, because yes I am a church girl, I grew up in the church,” says Bailon in an interview with Latina Magazine. “But at the same time, even with my current boyfriend, we had a lot of conversations that we have in this movie.”
