Rebecca Zhu Complains that Tony Hung is Too Touchyjessie tan
In the drama Wonder Women <多功能老婆>, Rebecca Zhu (朱晨麗) plays a married couple with Tony Hung (洪永城) and the two artistes have several intimate scenes together. Although they seem to have onscreen chemistry together, Rebecca complains that Tony had personally added too many intimate gestures himself and was too touchy during filming.
Appearing in a promotional event, Rebecca ranted about Tony, “In the drama, he is my husband and inevitably there are intimate scenes together. The script is written very clearly, but he added a lot of contents like touching and kissing. You know how in the drama, I would always be telling him how much I love him. It’s all fake! In my mind, I asked ‘Are you done touching me?’”
Sharing her displeasure, Rebecca continued, “I know he is very into character. Once he tried to kiss me when the camera was on. At that point, I didn’t know how to react. I couldn’t just push him away [while filming]. In real life, I would push him away and slap him. I had to keep my professionalism and kept filming. Afterwards, I told him not to add so many things in. He would say it was for the plot and he wanted to create some [intimate] feelings. He didn’t even apologize. Even though I am good friends with him, I am still a little upset.”
Rebecca has sterns words for Tony, “Communication is very important, Tony. Stop doing what you want. Good thing you encountered me, and I am so nice. If it was someone else, look…” Rebecca ended the topic by making scissors movement with her fingers.
Rebecca’s statement made a stir, and Tony later spoke with the press. Admitting that he had added some gestures to make their scenes more lively, Tony said, “I apologize to her if I have done anything that made her feel uncomfortable. I’m a professional actor, so I know what can or can’t be done.”
