Taiwan’s number one model, Lin Chi-ling has been striving hard for five years in the filming industry, but her effort does not seem to pay off.
She has always been negatively labelled as a “good looking vase” in the movies and recently, viewers even harshly criticized her as a “flowerpot” in her latest movie with Andy Lau, Switch <天機─富春山居圖>.
Chi-ling made her acting debut in John Woo’s Red Cliff <赤壁> in 2008. Although her acting was still raw at that time, the blockbuster movie helped her to gain a foothold in the Chinese films industry.
However, her subsequent movies The Treasure Hunter <刺陵> in 2009, Welcome to Sha-ma Town <決戰剎馬鎮> in 2010 and Love on Credit <幸福額度> in 2011 all met with disappointing box office results and poor reviews.
Although her movie with Huang Bo 101 Marriage Proposals <101次求婚> did garner positive reviews at the beginning of 2013, her effort has gone down the drain with Switch. Audience blasted her acting in the movie and even negatively labelled her a “flowerpot”.
Responding to the harsh criticisms lately, Chi-ling said, “I believe the team is reviewing the story and structure of the movie. However, we can’t wipe off the effort of the team. I think instead of looking back, we should urge ourselves to look forward and improve the next time.”
