Cecilia Cheung Blasts Wong Jing With Sarcasm, Criticizes Script As Being No Good
The movie that starred the mother and son team which consisted of Cecilia Cheung (張栢芝) and her real life son, Lucas Tse (謝振軒), held it’s premiere in Hong Kong yesterday.
Lucas who had just started school, was unable to attend the premiere. On the other hand, his mother, Cecilia Cheung, was earlier blasted by the Mainland investors of that film for not attending enough promotions. This incurred Cecilia’s manager to retaliate and clarify matters on Weibo.
Yesterday night, Cecilia appeared at the movie premiere of that said film in Hong Kong. It was not known whether she was unwilling to be aggrieved but during the premiere, Cecilia blasted the script and the scriptwriter as being no-good.
This left Wong Jing (王晶), who was both the scriptwriter and the director of the film, with no choice but to act according to circumstances and to play it by ear, transforming Cecilia’s remarks into a joke, in hopes of driving away the unwanted guest.
Attending the premiere of her movie, Treasure Hunt《無價之寶》, Cecilia was donned in a Jean Paul Gaultier floral jumpsuit and had a new explosive zig zag hairstyle.
This also marked Cecilia Cheung’s first public appearance in Hong Kong after agreeing to a divorce with Nicholas Tse (謝霆鋒).
Upon her appearance, Cecilia made known that she wouldn’t be accepting any interviews from the press and only had a verbal exchange with the emcee. After staying to have the toasting ceremony and cutting of mooncake, Cecilia immediately fled the scene, rendering the remaining cast and crew speechless. In fact, Cecilia only stayed at the movie premiere of “Treasure Hunt” for a mere ten minutes!
Wong Jing Take It As It Comes
Earlier on, the Mainland investing company that invested in “Treasure Hunt” blasted Cecilia for accepting a filming remuneration of ten million when she had refused to abide by her side of the contract, which required her to attend promotional events for the film.
Upon learning about this, Cecilia’s manager went on Weibo to clarify matters and defend Cecilia, stirring up a war of words with the investing company.
Last night, when Cecilia was on stage, her every sentence was dripping with sarcasm, even going as far as to rebuke the script for being lousy. When the emcee asked her about any amusing stuff that happened during her time filming with Lucas, Cecilia responded, “Lucas was just being himself. I am usually the one who would help him to bathe every night. Hence, during filming, we were just performing our normal day-to-day activities like sleeping and bathing. Lucas didn’t even know that we were acting in a movie.”
As for whether Lucas had displayed any acting talent, Cecilia replied, “Lucas has my DNA (Deoxyribonucleic acid), he also loves to change dialogues and deliver some lines “off-the-cuff”. Maybe he felt that the scriptwriter was not good, he didn’t even followed one dialogue from it, he just self-invented the dialogues and presented it in a way which surfaced the naiveness of a child.”
Cecilia continued, “Lucas’ scenes took about a day to film in Hong Kong but he still felt very happy and comfortable.” (Emcee: Did Lucas suffer from any acting relapse and requested to shoot another movie again?) “Nope! Maybe there isn’t any good script around lahs!” It could be seen that after trampling on the screenwriter, Cecilia continued to crush the script!
Despite Cecilia’s harsh bashing, Wong Jing, who was the producer, scriptwriter and director of “Treasure Hunt”, did not flinch and continued to be all smiles. Wong Jing responded, “Wait till Lucas is 18 years old and I will give him a movie about courting girls to film lahs!”
After saying her piece, Cecilia didn’t went in with everyone to enjoy the movie but instead, she slipped through the back door of the cinema and left. However, before leaving, Cecilia still stopped to accept flowers from her fans as a form of polite gesture.
About rumors of Cecilia’s refusal to promote the film, Wong Jing professed, “This isn’t Cecilia’s only promotion. The previous time we promoted at Guangxi and the praying ceremony is also considered as another promotion too. But of course, as the producer, I feel that the more promotions done, the better lahs!” (Reporter: Cecilia refused to accept an interview this time?) “Take photographs of her lors! Because she also has nothing to revert to the things you guys ask her!”
(Did you feel that Cecilia has fulfilled enough of the promotions obligations?) “I had already shot over a hundred dramas, I will not force my friends to do something that they are unwilling to do.” (In the future when Cecilia takes up movie offers, will her arrangements be like this too?) “I have not seen her for a long time, you guys should ask her management company instead.” (Will you be collaborating with her again?) “See how the tendency goes lors, will find her again if it’s appropriate and suitable.”
Not planning to collaborate again for the time being
Asked whether it was because Cecilia’s asking price has increased significantly, Wong Jing laughed heartily and said, “Her asking price has never been cheap, even before she had gotten married, it was also not cheap.”
The reporter then asked Wong Jing whether he would take this opportunity to talk to Cecilia about her mood after divorce. Wong Jing responded that this was also the first time he had seen Cecilia ever since she had divorced with Nicholas Tse but he expressed that he rarely talks about personal matters thus he did not ask Cecilia about her private affairs. Wong Jing also continued, “Cecilia is already an adult lahs, I am also considered half an uncle to Cecilia hence I do not need to deliberately bring it up.”
Actually, Cecilia was in high spirits throughout the premiere. Upon reaching the premiere, she had even privately chatted with former rumored squeeze, Ronald Cheng (鄭中基). The duo even erupted into bouts of laughter in between their conversation. It turned out that Ceilia had joked that Ronald looked like “King of Cat” Elvis Presley.
Cecilia later proceeded to cut a giant mooncake with Jacquelin Chong (莊思敏), Phillip Ng (伍允龍) and the rest of the cast and crew. In the midst of cutting it, a piece of the mooncake bounced and shivered, which drew attention from Cecilia and Ronald, who exchanged glances amongst themselves and laughed.
