Odeneho wears men’s suit at Oscars ceremony
Odeneha, the star of the Oscar-winning musical “Tender,” wore a suit to the Oscars in an effort to show support for women and minorities in the industry.
The 43-year-old actress, who has been married to her husband of 17 years for nearly five years, was seen in a red tuxedo with a red tie and silver necklace on Monday evening at the Oscars Ballroom in Hollywood.
The Hollywood actress also appeared to be wearing a pink suit on the red carpet in her home town of Odessa, the capital of Ukraine, where she is based.
Odeneho, who is married to former President Oleksandr Solovyov, told a news conference on Monday that she wears a traditional black dress in Odessa.
She said she’s “very proud of the fact that I wear a traditional dress and not any kind of fancy suit.”
She said her husband was a great actor, but he had a different philosophy about how to be an actor.
“I think a lot of people have an opinion about men, but I really don’t, I think the woman is beautiful,” she said.
“I wear the same dress and the same shoes.
I don’t really care if I wear white or red or gold, but it’s something that suits me.”
The former Ukrainian president, who was in the U.S. as a guest of President Donald Trump, said he was disappointed by Odenehe’s choice of attire.
He called on the Russian government to take action against Odeneham, who had previously said she would not wear the traditional dress.
Odena, a self-described socialist, said she has been a political activist for almost 40 years.
The actress is known for her roles in movies such as “The Secret Life of Pets” and “Tintin,” as well as TV shows such as the “House of Cards” and the “Game of Thrones.”
Odela is the third woman to wear a red suit at the ceremony, joining a woman dressed in a purple suit by the late actress Gwyneth Paltrow.
Odenha, who stars in the Broadway musical “The Wedding Singer,” was previously married to actor Viktor Shvart.
She and Solovyova, who are best known for their work on the Soviet-era “Tendrilov,” were married for 20 years and have two daughters.
