Sandra Dewi on quickies, spying, faith, naked photos, and Keanu Reeves.

Lovely actress Sandra Dewi, who says her idol is the Hollywood star Keanu Reeves, plays a secret agent in a new sinetron production "Elang".

She says the role is a big challenge for her, and that she had to learn self-defence moves, because there are fight scenes in the soap opera. [1]

"Elang" also features Rianti Cartwright.

There are apparently a number of photos of Sandra on the internet, purportedly showing her naked. On March 18th 2008 Sandra held a press conference and produced Roy Suryo, technology expert extraordinaire, to say that the photos were faked.

At the press conference Sandra cried and said maybe it was just a horrible test for her, and remembered that Jesus was whipped and crucified because people had said false things about him too.

Sandra said her faith was very important to her and that God favoured her, when she wanted to get a role in a new soap opera, a script arrived at her home, when she wanted to buy a new car, God permitted her to do so. [2]

    It’s always good to know God is into favoritism. Some people are allowed to buy cars, some people are struck with diseases, hunger, violence, war and natural disasters.

    Who are you to question Sandra Dewi? She is the only angel ever reincarnate on this cursed archipelago. Even the Bible sing praises for her: your lips are like a scarlet thread, your mouth is lovely and your temples are like a slice of pomegranate…
    She cured us from our decade of decadent infatuation with Dian Sastro. Whatever words come from those lips, the teardrops fall from those eyes are truth, sweet truth.

    Repent.

    “She cured us from our decade of decadent infatuation with Dian Sastro. Whatever words come from those lips, the teardrops fall from those eyes are truth, sweet truth.”

    ….. and the holy liquid coming out from Murphy in his ugly bathroom is his offering for her, sweet offering….

    it’s funny when we discuss about what god wants and what god does not want. our pretense in knowing about god is so excessive that we do not know anymore whether or not we really know what we talk about.

    sandra dewi does not either know what brings her luck, but physically (and perhaps personally) she is so adorable and likeable that people are attracted to her (beauty).
    this natural attraction is but a commercial opportunity to the entrepreneurs and therefore convertible to business. as time matures, this beauty depreciates like other commodities. people will start finding new stars and forget her…

    It’s called the Prosperity Theology. Not just one of those inferior (and yet self gratifying) tones most religious people tend to use.
    Prosperity Theology have greatly shaped what is now seemed to be the mainstream Christianity in Indonesia for around 10 years or more now. Televangelists, gospel-like choirs, supernatural healings, etc, which makes some of us somewhat a minority inside a minority, because we do not participate or believe in it. Or any other kind of religious fundamentalism.

    I’ve done an article on Prosperity Theology in Indonesia, questioning the situation between these new church establishments and their financial legitimacy. Haven’t had the guts to publish it though.

    Marisa, I know you’re a fan of famous quotes, going by your Twitter page, so, George Orwell:

    “In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act.”

    If you’re into revolutionary acts that is.

    Peace.

    Prosperity Theology have greatly shaped what is now seemed to be the mainstream Christianity in Indonesia for around 10 years or more now.

    I always thought the reward for Christians was to go to heaven in the afterlife if they’re willing to sacrifice in the present life.

    “You lack one thing; go, sell what you own, and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.” ( Mark 10:21)

    Is the situation in Indonesia the same as in the US where ministers have houses like castles with loads of cars in front of them? But I understand this theology is attractive.

    - It addresses the human nature of materialism and justifies it because it’s divine.
    - It’s OK not to feel burdened because isn’t it God who rewarded you with your 4th car?
    - To see all these rich people around you in Church you start thinking Christianity is the one true religion.

    These guys need to be honest to themselves and admit the only thing they believe in is money and business instinct, hard work, luck, inheritance or corruption and stealing are the reasons for being prosperous, not God.

    Argh.

    I need to stare at Sandra Dewi for like five minutes to refresh my eyes from seeing the sight of the man below her.

    Why must you ruin the fun by putting *his* photo anyway. There are more than six billion other people dwelling in the planet of God’s sake.

    Ah, a typo. I meant ‘for God’s sake’. There’s Sandra Dewi. Lost focus. Sorry.

    She said “Favoured”, not favourite. Even though it comes from the same word, but its meaning is different.

    Marissa,

    Publish or perish! Hold on a second, or is that “publish and perish!”… :D

    Not everything that we write we intend to publish…I am sure that if I root around in the boxes that litter the room in my house that I call a study / library I will find numerous “articles” that were at one time destined for publication — I am a writer waiting to happen!

    Revolution! But preferrably without bloodshed (is there such a thing?)!

    Who cares if she thinks that God makes her one of her favourites when it comes to dishing out the sinetron roles. If you want a sinetron or film role or whatever you gotta go out there and audition so that God can see you in line and doing the hard yards.

    In any event, it is clear that Sandra Dewi was not hiding under the ugly rock when God was handing out the beauty genes! Let’s face it if you are going to doctor a picture then you are probably going to put a celebs head on a good looking body. There is not a big industry for photoshopping ugly people’s mugs (like mine) onto the bodies of good looking or beautiful people (although this might be a novel concept to pursue)…

    God is on a no winner anyway! If our lives are good then we thank God and if our lives are bad then we blame God! Being God must really suck!

    actually, i kind of relate to what she says. Sometimes in our lives, obstacles can be hard to handle, and we are hurt when people accuse us for things we did not do. Jesus Christ is a role model she looks up to because he manage to tolerate all sorts on injustice in the name of love and truth. That is why she saw it as a test to improve herself, every obstacle in life has a hidden lesson in it, and you will only come out stronger after that. Even if you do not believe in a higher power, you should at least get this point?

    I Know sandra dewi is not a cheaper girl, she is a girl with a commited with a Jesus God. She is a good girl. I like to meet her one day. I always watch her movie on TV like “Cinta Indah, Elang “recently most of artist in the world only want a popularity with easy way, sometimes they are not thinking about a honourable in terms as human being. God create us as a perfect creation compare with other His creation but we have to think about our self which is like our body, because our body is a God temple so we should to maintance our body with holy spirit on us. Keep on faith, Sandra.
