Sexy Taiwanese actress Vivian Hsu strips down to her lingerie for a love scene in her new movie Rhythm Of The Rain.
Considering that she is no stranger to sex scenes, having acted in soft-porn flicks before, it is surprising that Hsu still finds it difficult to nail each take. Her biggest challenge - laughing during the shoot.
In Rhythm Of The Rain, the 38-yearold beauty said that the hardest part of shooting the intimate scene with Taiwanese actor Alan Kuo was not laughing after the director yelled "Action!".
Hsu, who was in town to promote the show, which opens here today, told The New Paper: "As I knew Alan beforehand, I almost broke into laughter when shooting the bed scene with him.
"Once I started laughing, I won't stop and I would NG for 10 to 20 times." NG, which stands for "no good", refers to scenes that need to be shot again. She added: "Even if I felt shy or awkward while filming the bed scene, I did not show it.
"I had to conceal it so that my co-actor would not feel uncomfortable or insecure." The music-themed movie, directed by famed Taiwanese lyricist Vincent Fang,
features Kuo as Allen, the leader of an indie band who falls in love with a demure undergraduate Yu Jie (newcomer Ginnie Han) .
After a night of drinking with his rock musician ex-girlfriend Sharon (Hsu), Allen hooks up with her.
