ALL'S WELL ENDS WELL 2011 (JUI KEUNG HEI SI)'s cast including Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi, Louis Koo Tin Lok, Lynn Xiong (Hung Doi Lam), Chapman To Man Jat, Yan Ni and boss Raymond Wong Pak Ming yesterday went to Macau Venetian Hotel for the film finale. In the story Cheung Pak Chi and To Man Jat were about to get married when Koo Tin Lok interrupted the wedding while Hung Doi Lam swore to marry To Man Jat with a gun in her hand.

After a long rest, Pak Chi recently came back and chose Wong Pak Ming's Lunar New Year film as the first film of her return. Pak Chi explained, "After giving birth I want to make a light and happy comedy, to work on it comfortably. After years without making a movie, at first I was a little nervous but I didn't have any pressure." As for disappointing directors who she turned down, Pak Chi said, "Everyone is busy, I have still many good scripts and movies." In a wedding gown Pak Chi said, "Wearing a wedding gown has no special feeling, since I have been married for years." As for rumors of dispute between Pak Chi, Donnie Yen Chi Tan, Carina Lau Ka Ling and others, Pak Chi explained that they were just rumors. When asked about Ka Ling's salary being higher than hers, Pak Chi said that she would only answer about film work. Wong Pak Ming stressed that the entire team worked harmoniously.

To Man Jat uploaded photos of Pak Chi and her son's visit on the set, Pak Chi did not mind at all. When she was free she would upload to her microblog. Pak Chi also revealed that three days ago her husband Nicholas Tse Ting Fung and father in law Patrick Tse Yin also came to visit. Pak Chi said, "He doesn't like to talk, he only stayed for 15 minutes and left, but I sensed that he cared."

Koo Tin Lok said that he could tell Pak Chi was much more mature than before. He saw her constantly with her son and was a living and breathing good mother. Speaking of Koo Tin Lok having two films in release at the same time, ALL'S WELL ENDS WELL 2010 and MR. AND MRS. INCREDIBLE, Goo Jai said, "Two movies against each other of course aren't awkward. Boss Wong is here, I of course said this film is a little better." In the film Hung Doi Lam was arranged to steal the groom and finally become a pair of To Man Jat. Speaking of the director arranging for her and To Man Jat to have a romance of long and short legs, Lynn said, "I am used to most guys being shorter than me when I go out." Lynn in the film pursued the multi-billionaire To Man Jat, would she take the initiative in reality? Lynn said, "I never fought over anyone."

Juno Mak Chun Lung and Japanese adult video queen Sora Aoi starred film REVENGE A LOVE STORY (FOOK SAU JEH JI SEI) two nights ago held its premiere, but Sora Aoi cancelled due to illness. Juno could only support the film with the all male team of Chin Siu Ho, Anthony Lau Wing, boss and producer Conroy Chan Chi Chung. Chan Chi Chung represented his wife Josie Ho Chiu Yi who was working on a film in the U.S. presented a card to Juno as encouragement, but when he heard being called the boss he pretended to be mad and said, "Don't call me boss again, I will beat you! Haha!" The host was stunned, later he explained that he had a little to drink.

Two nights ago industry guests included Kelvin Kwan Chor Yiu, Endy Chow Kwok Yin and Grasshoppers' Remus Choi Yat Kit and So Chi Wai. Choi Yat Kit was very passionate and chased Juno with a peck on the cheek. Later Juno joked that he did not mind Choi Yat Kit taking advantage of him. He even said that seeing so many friends who came in support, not to mention one kiss, he could take ten kisses. As for Sora Aoi's earlier online comment that she hated Hong Kong, Juno believed that she was not upset at the film company. However the last time she had to do over a dozen interviews daily and she got sick, indeed it was very tough. He guessed that she was just "relieving stress".

Ada Choi Siu Fun and Mainland actor Max Zhang Jin have been married for over two years. Yesterday Zhang Jin attended a press conference and suddenly announced good news that his wife Ada was pregnant.

Zhang Jin, Eric Suen Yiu Wai yesterday attended the gospel film TEAM OF MIRACLE: WE WILL ROCK YOU (LAU LONG HONG SAI GAI BUI) celebration to announce the film winning the Chinese American Film Festival Golden Angel Award. Zhang Jin also announced another piece of good news. His wife Ada was pregnant. Everyone was happy for Zhang Jin as Suen Yiu Wai and others congratulated him. He accepted his good friends' well wishes.

The soon to be father Zhang Jin could not be happier. He said that he just learned from his wife so he was not at liberty to discuss any detail. He also said that he was not afraid the baby being petty because they were Christians and did not believe in such superstition. Ultimately he had something joyous to share with everyone.

When Ada just took a Mainland series role, she still had to work on it in the Mainland. Yet because she did not have to work over these few days so she returned to Hong Kong to rest. As a husband Zhang Jin felt very helpless. Since the job was taken long ago she could not turn it down, otherwise she would have to compensate the production. Zhang Jin said that the series will be completed by the Lunar New Year. Then Ada will be able to return to Hong Kong. Zhang Jin has always spoiled Ada. Before she was pregnant he already hired three to four assistants to help her. Now he would hire several more assistants to take care of his wife's everyday life. Zhang Jin asked Ada to be careful and has been very attentive.

As for changes, Zhang Jin said that Ada's temper has always been lacking. Now with the pregnancy it is even worse. Luckily he understood that pregnant women were emotional. His wife has begun to feel nauseous. Has Ada become the queen at home? Zhang Jin joked, "Actually she also plays a queen in the series. Now she wants me to wait on her all the time, but I am very glad to!" Zhang Jin now has to work hard for milk money. How did he reward his wife? He said, "Normally I constantly give her gifts, so I don't have any special reward." Zhang Jin said that the baby will be born in Hong Kong.

Suen Yiu Wai was interested in investing in a several million dollar religious film. He has already come up with three stories. He hoped that the actors will take a pay cut to perform, a friendship price would be the best. Will he ask girlfriend Macy Chen Mei Si to help? Eric joked that if she did not take a salary he would consider reserving a character for her.

Director Chen Kaige two days ago with actors Ge You, Wang Xueqi, Fan Bingbing and Huang Xiaoming attended the SACRIFICE media event in Shanghai. Chen Kaige praised veteran actors Ge You and Wang Xueqi. Ge You was calm about the title of the "holiday emperor".

Chen Kaige revealed that he has seen the film long ago. At the time he believed in the sincerity of the script. Yet after becoming a father he began to suspect that type of "loyalty" and considered for years before choosing a simple way to tell this story. He even praised Ge You and Wang Xueqi's acting. "Their acting seems like making soup, with a lot of ingredients that finally melt in the soup. The soup is very delicious but the original ingredients can't be seen. It is near perfection."

Ge You has three films during the holiday season and thus was called the "holiday emperor". He calmly said, "Three films appearing together has nothing to do with me at all. Actors after acting are done. Production, distribution and release are all investor's work. As for comparisons they will be definite, but in front of the public I don't know what to say, luckily all three characters are completely different." As for box office expectation, Ge You said, "1 billion is not too much, 5
billion is not too little." In the film Ge You and Huang Xiaoming had some exchanges that were accused of being homosexual. Huang Xiaoming honestly said that he did not know how to perform to achieve such a result.

New film LOVER's DISCOURSE (LUEN YUN SHUI YU) directors and writers Derek Tsang Kwok Cheung and Jimmy Wan Chi Man yesterday appeared on a RoadShow program and shared their experience as their new film competed in the 15th Pusan Film Festival for the New Wave award.

The cast included Karena Lam Ka Yun, Eason Chan Yik Shun, Mavis Fan Hiu Huen, Kay Tse On Kay, Eric Tsang Chi Wai and others. Tsang Kwok Cheung said that before the production started, actors already asked him to save a role for them. Chan Yik Shun was one of those who raised his hand and asked. He also revealed that Lam Ka Yun and Chan Yik Shun were very excited about the chance to work with each other. After years in the business, they have never worked together.

As for Tse On Kay and Chan Yik Shun being in the same film, Tsang Kwok Cheung said, "Before they were linked in gossip we have already asked Tse On Kay to perform. After our impression and text message strategy, we also worked on her husband Louis Cheung Kai Chung who had a stage background. After Cheung Kai Chung read the script, our sincerity finally enabled the collaboration. Later Tse On Kay indeed considered it for awhile due to the gossip. Because their parts were different they did not meet in the film."

Chow Yun Fat, Ge You and Jiang Wen starred new film LET THE BULLETS FLY yesterday held a press conference in North Point. Fat Gor took time to attend. An avid television viewer, Fat Gor said that two nights ago he watched the NO REGRETS finale. As for his choice for TVB Best Actor award, he abandoned the favorites and picked Kent Cheng Juk Si. When asked about Raymond Lam Fung, he joked that he looked like Mak Bau.

Fat Gor's appearance attracted media coverage. The event arranged for his partners of many years Carol Cheng Yui Ling to host. The entire event only had 15 minutes for questions and also showed his new film highlight. Fat Gor who has not seen his good friend in years flirted and praised Dodo as young and pretty. In the event he was asked about his home TVB and its Best Actor and Best Actress awards. Reporters first asked whether he watched the NO REGRETS finale. He not only praised that it was good but also watched Dodo win the big laisee at the TVB Anniversary. He joked that luck was with his good friend.

Felix Wong Yat Wa earlier blasted TVB for playing favorites, Fat Gor said that he did not read the related reports. He also said, "I of course would praise and not scold TVB!" Has he thought about returning home to make a series, he said to Dodo, "If you are willing then I am!" Dodo responded, "Really? If you do I would no matter how tough it is!" As for his choice for this year's TVB Best Actor, he said, "I like Cheng Juk Si. As for Actresses it's Man Nui (Sheren Tang Shui Man), Ah Sheh (Charmaine Sheh Si Man)." As for TVB's own Lam Fung, he joked, "He looks like Mak Bau!" If he could only choose on Best Actor, he would only choose Cheng Juk Si. As for new comers, he took his time and joked that they were all very old. Did he feel that both film and television lacked successors? He joked, "Nothing much is new! Everyone is very old, I am the newest! Does Mak Bau count as a new comer? This new comer is pretty good. Lam Fung is already a veteran!"

As for his new film box office, Fat Gor felt that the most important was for him to keep getting film offers. Later he will work on THE MONKEY KING (DAI LAU TIN GUNG). If he was invited to promote in Taiwan would he be afraid of the bullets? Fat Gor responded, "No! I have
Jiang Wen!) Lee Tim Sing earlier thanked the off screen talent and supporting cast. Fat Gor also said, "From the beginning to the end the off screen talent must be complimented. All television and movies have to have the support of the off screen talent!" As for the passing of Wong Jing's father Wong Tin Lam, he said, "We had a lot of happy on the job memories! I will call Ah To (Johnnie To Kei Fung). People ultimately have to go, 80 year old is considered a smiling death!"

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."
