Fresh out of the oven Best Actor Ethan Juan (Yuen King Tin), Carina Lau Ka Ling, Asia Pacific Best Actress Sandrine Pinna (Cheung Yung Yung), Gaile Lok, Linda Chung Ka Yun, Ella Koon Yun Na and others two nights ago attended the second night of the Cartier Asia flagship store
opening party. The event even invited English singer V.V. Brown and famous Paris DJ and sound designer Beatrice Ardisson to perform.
Siu Tin celebrated with friends after winning his Best Actor award and was caught kissing and hugging his girlfriend Tiffany Hsu. "It wasn't very intimate, normally we are like this." After the award gossips ensued, reportedly he turned down Stephen Chow Sing Chi's new CHINESE
ODYSSEY for Peter Chan Ho Sun's new film. Siu Tin helplessly explained that before he was in contact with Sing Yeh, he already took Chan Ho Sun's new film. He said that he respected film and he would only make one film at all time. He was that way with MONGA. He also said that Sing Yeh was not upset and they even had a very pleasant talk. He even said that he grew up enjoying Sing Yeh's films and hoped to have a chance to work with him next time.
Did he get a raise after the award? He said that he did not need to increase his price after the award. Doing his part well was the most important. Instead he would give up his salary to make the production better. He also said, "I know excessively high actor salary is not good for film. We also shouldn't make movies just for money." Reportedly he turned down 41 films in one breath. He said that he did not know the actual number. Did he make less money? He said that money was minor. If he wanted money when he made MONGA he would not have today's reward. The Golden Horse Award results were accused of Taiwan biased and lacked credibility, Siu Tin said that the award had a long history, many winners in the past were not big productions and someone would not win just because they were famous. In addition the jury had people from Hong Kong and other places, thus he thought the event was fair and just. He even
stressed that he did not just say that because he won. He said, "Whether happy, sad, angry it should just happen for a day. I will keep working hard to make more good movies."
Lau Ka Ling honestly said that after completing ALL'S WELL ENDS WELL 2011 (JUI KEUNG HEI SI) her acting bug was still not satisfied, because everyday in the film she tried on different characters like young model, flight attendant, Eileen Chang, she thought it was very refreshing.
When Christmas on the way, Ka Ling hoped to be able to take time off. Although her husband Tony Leung Chiu Wai will have to work on THE GRANDMASTERS (YUT DOI JUNG SI) and not be able to keep her company, she will visit him on the set. Wai Jai said that he was not resistant to having a child, Ka Ling said that having a child depended on fate. They have taken an open approach and let it take its natural course. She said, "I will improve myself first before considering having a child."
