Angelababy Shows Off Sexy Figure in “Rise of the Legend”

Many of the previously released trailers of director Roy Chow’s (周顯揚) upcoming kung fu flick, Rise of the Legend <黃飛鴻之英雄有夢>, showed a brief glimpse of a mysterious woman baring her back. Only recently was it revealed that the woman is actress Angelababy (楊穎), who plays a prostitute that falls in love with Eddie Peng’s (彭于晏) Wong Fei Hung.

Though the story of Wong Fei Hung has been adapted many times, Rise of the Legend marks the first time that the protagonist will be pursued by two females at the same time – Angelababy’s Xinlan and Wang Luodan’s (王珞丹) Ah Chun. Director Roy Chow explained that he and his wife, screenwriter Christine To (杜致朗), deliberately added in more romance scenes to appeal to modern audiences and make the story more interesting.

However, Angelababy’s purpose in the movie is not only to propel the romantic storyline along or simply provide eye candy for viewers. In Rise of the Legend, her character is involved in an important fight scene with the main antagonist, played by actor Feng Jiayi (馮嘉儀).

Because the fight takes place in the public baths, the scene was extremely difficult to film. Moreover, during the fight, Angelababy is wearing a dudou undergarment, which covers only her chest and abdomen, so the crew had to be extra careful in order to avoid a wardrobe malfunction.

Despite the difficulties, Angelababy insisted on not using a double. The scene ended up taking 15 hours to shoot, mostly because Angelababy kept telling the director, “It’s okay. I can do it. Let’s do a retake so it will be better.”

“I really like the character of Xinlan,” said Angelababy when asked why she went all-out to portray this character. “She is persistent in love, even to the point of not caring about consequences.”

Rise of the Legend opens in theaters in November. The cast also features Sammo Hung (洪金寶), Jing Boran (井柏然), and Max Zhang (張晉).

    Agree, she has no figure. She’s thin as a stick, and her boobs are fake, so obvious. Also, why is she always paired with Eddie Peng? This is their third collaboration …

    I thought she was going to play 13th Aunt.

      Terminator,
      There is no 13th Aunt character in “Rise of the Legend”, perhaps to leave room for another actress to join a possible sequel. Wang Luodan will portray Wong Fei Hung’s childhood friend in love with Eddie Peng in “Rise of the Legend”.

        Angelababy’s role is small, is it not? I remember it seemed like she was going to play the female lead, but then they added Wang Luodan and Angelababy only had a “guest role” or something.

      When you said 13th Aunt I thought you were talking about the “bao zhou po” from Kung Fu Hustle.

      13th aunt wad a fictitious character created for Tsui Hark’s WFH film series. She doesnt exist in real history so not sure if this film might have to pay royalties to Tsui Hark if the character is usrd.

    What do you guys mean, ‘what figure’?? What did this Angelababy girl do to piss you guys off?? She looks about as thin as the likes of Maggie Cheung, Gigi Leung, Myolie Wu, Ada Choi, Fala Chen, Charmaine Sheh, Christine Ng, Kenix Kwok, Sammi Cheng, etc etc etc. But this is what the HK public encourages: pubescent-looking, severely underweight, frail-looking adult women without an inch of fat on them, with no bust or butt. Otherwise, they’ll be called fat. Think of the criticism from the likes of Alan Tam, Eric Tsang, Hacken Lee, Dodo Cheng, Liza Wang, etc. They’ve all called people fat, on national television, at one time or another. Notice the cruelty of the media when it comes to actresses weight and size. Look what happened to Cutie Miu and Christine Kuo. To all the people who criticized, you guys are the reason why women in HK have body image issues and eating disorders.

      Right… To me, a woman can be sexy, fat or thin, but they need to know how to strike that sexy pose, how to do that sexy face and eye and look, angelababy has been failing so far, and her pose in the first picture is more dr. Evil (that’s what my partner thinks of it) . Just because we criticize angelababy’s so called sexy figure, doesn’t mean we think thin people is sexy (as a matter of fact, a lot here think her thin figure is not sexy). Don’t clump people up into stupid category for your defense of your idol >_>

      I can’t watch the Chinese version. I’ve seen a few episodes, and the name tag battles seem a little bit too “intense” for my tastes.

      She’ll be mocked for being fat if she had more curves and meat to her bones. There must other reasons for the unbridled animosity toward AB. Sammi Cheng is a lot skinnier but there’s not much nastiness directed toward her.
