Golden Horse Best Actor Ethan Ruan (阮經天) boldly revealed in an interview that he had lost his virginity when he was 18 years old.
Currently promoting his latest film Paradise in Service <軍中樂園>, a story set in the 1960s, Ethan disclosed some interesting tidbits that occurred while filming an intimate scene with costar Regina Wan (萬茜), who portrays an army camp prostitute.
In the scene, Ethan, who portrays a virgin, is supposed to act confused but aroused when Regina kisses him. Regina also puts her hand into his pants.
To prepare for this scene, Ethan added extra protection in the front of his pants. He said the scene was very difficult for him to film as he was supposed to act more submissive and shy.
Naturally, a biological reaction occurred when Regina touched him inside his pants and Ethan felt embarrassed afterwards, reports Jayne Stars.
Ethan revealed in an interview that he lost his virginity when he was 18 years old, so filming the intimate scene with Regina felt a bit unnatural for him. He said his girlfriend at the time was also a virgin, and that they both felt excitement and fear before going to bed together.
Currently dating Tiffany Hsu (許瑋甯), Ethan laughed and said he does not plan on sharing his filming experience with Tiffany. He said he avoids watching his girlfriend’s intimate scenes in dramas, as it makes him uncomfortable.
Ethan revealed that they are planning to get married in early 2015. Ethan stated that it will be a low-profile wedding and they will only invite close friends. He will not announce the wedding date, but will make sure to announce the good news to everyone after they get married.
“Tiffany is the best animal trainer,” Ethan said with a laugh. “I’m a professional at washing dishes now!”
Paradise in Service, a drama film about young boys in the Taiwanese army during the 1960s, will be released on September 5, 2014.
