At the premiere for romantic comedy The Last Women Standing <剩者為王>,Shu Qi (舒淇) shared her views on love.
In her romantic interactions with men, she was often the more pro-active party who would pursue the man rather than the other way round, reports Jayne Stars.
On how she goes about pursuing a man she likes, Shu Qi joked, “Like Nie Yin Niang [Shu Qi’s character in the film The Assassin <刺客聶隱娘>), I will keep silently appearing before the man.”
On a more serious note, Shu Qi admitted that confessing to a man and telling him, “I like you” takes a lot of courage. When she is rejected by a man, she sometimes wished that she could “throw him into a river”.
Shu Qi added that, however, on her own end, she has rejected quite a number of suitors.
Since she is 39 years old, Shu Qi was asked if she is looking forward to the day when she could finally get married.
She said in a raw moment of honesty, “As a celebrity, I have worn all kinds of beautiful clothing, but every single time I put on a wedding gown and stand before the mirror, I still have a moment where a little voice inside me will say, ‘Hey Mr. Right, please come and marry me. I’m a good catch!’ I believe every woman inherently has such desires. No matter how carefree a woman is, she will always have moments where she pines for marriage.”
