Actor Michael Ealy turned down the opportunity to appear in a Beyonce video, because he didn’t want to be associated with a cheating character. The “Drunk in Love” star first approached the actor to appear in her “Irreplaceable” video, but he didn’t want to portray a “jerk” who was kicked out of his home for messing up his relationship with Beyonce, reported Contactmusic.
“The first time I was asked to do the Beyonce video it was for a song called Irreplaceable and my first instinct was like, ‘Absolutely, just play the song’, and so they played the song and I was like, Could you play that one more time please?'” he told “Live with Kelly”.
“I was like, ‘No, I can’t do it. I’m not available’. It was a song about a woman kicking her man out of her house and he was a jerk… and he deserved it. On top of that (the hook) ‘to the left, to the left’ was so catchy I was like, ‘I don’t want to be associated with that for the rest of my career’. You know, that I’m like the ‘to the left guy’.”
