Stephen Chow admires Shu Qi’s sense of humour
Hong Kong's "king of comedy" Stephen Chow finally unveiled his latest project Odyssey, almost six years after his last movie CJ7. Headlined by Taiwanese artistes Show Luo and Shu Qi, the cast attended the movie's press conference in Hong Kong yesterday.
His first time working with Shu Qi, Stephen openly expressed his admiration for the actress at the press conference. "[Shu Qi's] sexy, friendly and modest. She has a great sense of humour and has the potential to become an outstanding comedian in the future," said the 50-year-old.
The Taiwanese screen siren remained secretive when reporters asked if she felt Stephen is pursuing her and replied with a smile, "I won't tell any of you here."
When the spotlight was on Stephen's current love life, he immediately turned to Shu Qi for help. However, a reporter told him, "She's attached. Her rumoured boyfriend [Stephen Fung] shares the same name as you."
The actor-director then turned to Shu Qi and asked, "You already have a boyfriend?"
His question was met with a sweet smile from the tight-lipped actress. Shu Qi's non-reply was seen as an indirect confession to her relationship with Stephen Fung.
