LET THE BULLETS FLY after holding a premiere in Beijing earlier yesterday arrived in Shanghai to promote. Three great Best Actors Jiang Wen, Ge You and Chow Yun Fat's performances were praised, Carina Lau Ka Ling whose role did not have much screen time stole every scene that she was in. The media complimented, "Without taking off any clothes she seduces the entire film". Yesterday was Ka Ling's birthday the promotion brought a birthday cake near the end and also presented a 2011 calendar called Ka Ling of A Generation To her.
Actually two nights ago Ka Ling promoted in Shanghai, her husband Tony Leung Chiu Wai, friends Faye Wong, Li Yapeng, Li Bingbing were all present to celebrate her birthday. This year her birthday coincided with her new film release. With DETECTIVE DEE AND THE MYSTERY OF THE PHANTOM FLAME (DIK YUN KIT ji TUNG TIN DAI GOK) on the National Day, LET THE BULLETS FLY at Christmas and ALL'S WELL ENDS WELL 2011 at the Lunar New Year, Ka Ling has been called "three of a kind". Ka Ling fulfilled her wish to play in three good movies this year. As for birthday wish, she wished for health, happiness and charity.
Director Jiang Wen claimed that Ka Ling's performance in the film was alluring. He asked Ka Ling to take three tricks out of her bag and they would be enough. Ka Ling said that Jiang Wen is a sexy yet sentimental man who especially understands woman. As for little screen time, Ka Ling said that with such a team, such a director, such actors she would come with just one line. She also said that she was a fan of Jiang Wen and Ge You. They are so talented and she has always wanted to work with them. She never thought that they would all be in one movie.
Lau Ka Ling revealed that Jiang Wen roasted a leg of lamb for everyone and it was delicious. She discovered that good directors would not only know about making movies but also about food, like Jiang Wen and Wong Kar Wai. In LET THE BULLETS FLY, Jiang Wen and Lau Ka Ling had a bed scene. Although they were clothed, it was very seductive. Was the shoot tiring? Ka Ling said that she was not tired, Jiang Wen joked, "You still haven't had enough?"
Yesterday was Lau Ka Ling's 46th birthday. She two nights ago booked an entire floor of a new hotel and invited 200 friends including Faye Wong, Li Bingbing, Barbie and Dee Hsu, etc. to celebrate together. Ka Ling reportedly spent 2 million yuan on this birthday party. Her
husband Tony Leung Chiu Wai took time off from THE GRANDMASTERS (YUT DOI JUNG SI) and flew to Shanghai to celebrate with his wife. He even personally presented a label handbag to her as a birthday present.
Ka Ling's party theme was a masquerade. Three days ago she already posted photos of her invitation online, which said "the mask is for the moment of unmasking." Although guests were not permitted to bring their photos, after the event stars posted scenes from the party. The most heart warming was of course Ka Ling's loving embrace of husband Leung Chiu Wai and kissing Faye Wong. Ka Ling made the birthday wishes of being "healthy and carefree" at the party.
