    ZIMBABWE – HARARE – Zimbabwean Hollywood actress Thandie Newton is still angry with her first boyfriend, and opened her heart this week to the depressing story of early marriage and abuse.

    The 36-year-old actress has not forgiven director John Duigan for sweeping her into an “unhealthy” relationship when he was 39 and she was just 16.

    The ‘Crash’ star told Bang Media: “I was so young. I was separated from my parents filming ‘Flirting’ in Australia. I didn’t tell my parents about it but really young people who are vulnerable have to be looked out for.

    “How can it possibly be right to start a serious relationship with someone at that age when you are so much older?

    “I don’t forgive him, but I do understand a bit more because I have had therapy. I have moved on and it feels like it happened a long time ago.”

    Thandie – who has two daughters, Ripley, eight, and Nico, four, with director Ol Parker – says her troubled relationship with Duigan drove her to bulimia, something she is now keen to “leave behind”.

    She explained: “When you don’t like yourself or the situation you are in, you do not do very nice things to yourself.

    “I know lots of women suffer from eating disorders, so talking about it and saying there is no shame in it is good. But, on the other hand, I feel I want to leave it behind now. I want to reclaim a bit of me.”

    4. How come Mugabe is Zimbabwean yet his Mother was from Mozambique and father from Malawi? Thandi is Zimbabwean…at least her mother is from Zimbabwe, in fact more Zimbabwean than Mugabe.

    12. kuti Tandi chiBritish here?Munakwana,its Ndebele and Ndebele’s are Zimbabweans!

      Comment by Grace — September 15, 2009 @ 10:37 am

    13. This article is self serving. She slept with the boss of the set and now claims se was a victim. It is right when you do it and wrong after the fact. She should have done a mea culpa and said that it was ambition. She has a history of targeting directors and producers which is a hollywood norm

    14. Thandi uyo ihure, aka ma ma, look now she is engaged to yet another director, to hell hure

      Comment by borangoma — September 15, 2009 @ 3:53 pm

    15. SOME OF YOU PEOPLE MAKE ME MAD. THANDI NEWTON WAS INTERVIEWED BY NEWSWEEK MAGAZINE AND SHE FULLY AND FONDLY ACKNOWLEDGED HER ZIMBABWEAN BACKGROUND. THIS NONSENCE YEKUTI HANZI SHE DOESNT EVEN WANT ANYTHING TO DO WITH ZIM IS NOT RIGHT. WHEN DID SHE SAY THAT? MUCHINYARA MHANI MAZIMBA. KUPERO SPREADA MAKUHWA.

      AND IWE CHRIS YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND KUTI SHE WAS 16 FOR GOODNESS SAKE. DO YOU KNOW HOW EASY IT IS FOR A 39 YEAR OLD IN POWER TO MANIPULATE A 16 YEAR OLD?

      Comment by sajen no nonsence — September 15, 2009 @ 5:11 pm

    16. Kutaurisa zvenhando maZimba thats why country is burning no meaningful debate..

      Comment by Dhobadhoba — September 15, 2009 @ 6:01 pm

    17. sajen no nonsense. What happens is that when you look at subsequent events it is trait that started while she was young in life and it continues. No you do not hear that she is ‘in love’ with an actor. It is a system in hollywood. i do not blame the actor i blame the movie. we have seen it too often.

      Comment by chris — September 15, 2009 @ 9:17 pm

    18. I still repeat, Thandie haasi mu Zimbo. As for Grace, the name Thandi is common ku SA, Botswana, Zambia etc. Murume wa Karabo wemu Generations anonzi Shona Ferguson, does that make him mu Zimbo? Matibiri’s parents may have come from elsewhere, asi his citizenship ngeye Zim, hate him or like him. Ngatikambire zvedu Mr. Editor, musafurire wanhu zvenhema yahwee! Vazukuru vana vaana tete havasi vadyi venhaka yemusha! vane kwavo!

    23. editor wedu, musatizore zvakadaro!

      Comment by editor anonyepa — September 16, 2009 @ 5:28 pm

    24. All you crazies who are saying that Thandie is not Zimbabwean need to stop smoking what ever u r smoking and do some research. There is something called CITIZENSHIP AUTOMATICALLY BESTOWED ON A CHILD. This is the case in most developed countries and am sure in many African states. I have no doubt my child with a white woman here in USA is equally Zimbabwean as any one of u CLOWNS here.

      Thank you Mr Editor
