So when Shu Qi took to the challenge without breaking into a sweat, her photos garnered much attention online.
A photo compilation by photo.china.com.cn showed her posing for these 'ugly selfies'.
As expected, these candid moments of the star were deemed far from ugly, with many labelling the snapshots as being hilariously cute.
