Kodjoe plays the cheated-on husband who can’t keep up with the demands of his wife, who is the one struggling with sex addiction.
“Who would have thought that Boris Kodjoe would be getting cheated on?” Smith says.
Smith says that aside from enjoying the “tasteful” sex scenes, movie viewers will come away with a better understanding of sex addiction and may be motivated to get the help they need.
“You guys are going to enjoy the movie. It’s entertaining, it’s sexy, but it has a heart. My character helps Zoe, played by Sharon Leal, deal with the sex addiction, and I think it’s going to help people get over the stigma over therapy and mental health.”
Addicted is in theaters on Friday.
