Rania Youssef has caused controversy left right and center this year but according to the sexy starlet she's simply misunderstood.
Rania's choice of seductive film roles has earned her a scandalous reputation. But the diva claims it's not the makeup or skimpy clothing that attracts her to these parts, but the opportunity to show off her acting skills.
While the star might regularly raise the shock-meter with risque roles, she claims she has 'strict red lines' that she will never cross.
But this year Rania's real-life dramas have proved more shocking than her on-screen antics.
After accusations of drug smuggling and a messy divorce  from her bad boy ex-husband  hit the headlines, the Egyptian actress' image was left far from clean. But according to Rania, she is just an ordinary girl unlucky in love.
Her recent comments have left skeptics across the region wondering how much more personal and public drama Rania can serve up before hitting her 'strict red lines'.
