Fala Chen Never Hits the Gym

Many artists have to consistently work out and exercise to keep a well-presented figure and healthy figure, but Fala Chen’s (陳法拉) curves are all natural.

Fala is currently filming for TVB legal drama, Will Power <傳愛事務所>, starring alongside Wayne Lai (黎耀祥) and Moses Chan (陳豪). Earlier, Wayne and Fala filmed a boxing scene at a Muay Thai training center. The scene involved Wayne and Fala doing Muay Thai training kicks.

Wayne expressed that he had taken three years of karate lessons before, so the training kicks were not a challenge for him. Fala, however, had difficulty following the instructor’s steps, and in the end suffered bruises all over her legs and arms.

“I do not know how boxing works at all. We did not have an instructor to teach us on set, so I had to rely on watching the instructor who was teaching a class in the same studio. I rarely exercise too, so I really had to depend on my luck for this scene. Wayne and I had discussed how to do the scene thoroughly. Wayne is really smart. He knows how to protect himself from getting hurt, but I don’t know how, so that’s why I am all bruised.”

Fala, a previous beauty pageant titleholder, is often praised for her good looks, healthy skin, and attractive body shape. Fala admitted that a large part of her good figure came from her family genes, rather than through a consistent workout regimen.

“I do not jog nor swim. First off, I don’t have the time to, and second off, it is inconvenient for me to do so at public places. The only things I do are simple stretching exercises at home. I also have to eat a lot before I work!  I would not be able to function properly after a long and hard day of work if I didn’t eat.”

Fala revealed that Wayne and Moses are currently trying to keep a simple, vegetative diet to maintain their lithe figure for the drama. “If they’re not eating fruit then they are eating congee, or boiled foods. It does stress me out a little, because it makes me wonder if I should eat less too! When they see me eat, they would tell me to eat farther way so they wouldn’t be seduced by my food! It is quite hilarious!”

Wayne Lai Wants Abs

Muay Thai boxing scenes are common recurrences in TVB dramas. Wayne’s colleagues, Moses and Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎), have portrayed professional boxing champions before, and went topless for their roles to expose their toned muscles and abs.  Wayne however, chose to stick with a sleeveless top.

“There will only be about two boxing scenes in the drama. I did not train. If you were to ask me, I would not mind filming a drama that is similar to Gloves Come Off <拳王>, a drama with an excuse to show off your muscles! I would like to have the audience see a different side of me! Better off next time!”

      For now but remember that still has not had kids and is not that old yet. However, down the line, she will have to or she will pack on the pounds.

      It is also true that some are blessed like one of my aunts. She is 56, has had 5 kids, eats whatever she wants, rarely exercises yet has a very slim figure… Not sure if she will be lucky like my aunt though..

        Why actresses such as cecelia cheung, michelle reis, gigi lai, brigeditte lin, veronica yip, jamie chik, sandy lam, faye wong, DeeTsu all look so slim, fit and not fat? what are their secrets?

        I think some of them are, they have the money to maintain themselves, a good lifestyle,their don’t eat much,are well taken care of, etc… Some of them are partly due to genetics too.

        In Jamie’s case, she had to exercise hard for many years to get thin again because there was one point in time when she became really fat.

      Genetics is also a major factor in how one’s body is, slim vs round. I try try not to use the word fat. Lol.

    Totally agree that genes play a very important factor. That’s why a groom must look at his mother-in-law to see how his bride will look like in 30-40 years 🙂

    yea.. i think we can guess which artists are blessed with “slim’ genes regardless of eating non-stop..

    shirley yeung, liza wang, dodo cheng, jessica hsuen, fala, natalie tong, aimee, shirley kwan, faye wong, maggie cheung man yuk, linda chung, cecilia…all them always look same all these years

    I’ve seen fala Chen in person and in my opinion, she’s not slim. Rather skinny. Like me. Was hoping she’d talk about putting on weight, then I’d follow her ways lol

    Muscle atrophy will become a bigger issue when people grow older, Fala will have to train harder or risk injuries when filming action scenes.

    I can’t wait to see how she looks like when her metabolism starts slowing down. Her strong checkbones + slow metabolism will make her look very different.

    I hate these type of girls lol Actually, I am so jealous because I must go to the gym in order to eat all of the delicious but unhealthy foods that I love. Lots of naturally skinny girls might struggle to take care of themselves when their metabolism slows down after 30– not saying Fala is one of these girls, but she has a grueling work schedule but most women are desk bound.

    A lot of women don’t go the gym in Asia. They just watch what they eat….like REALLY watch what they eat…every grain of rice.
