Rebecca Lim: Will reluctant babe rise again?

This is the 19th edition of TNP's flame awards, where our sharp-tongued team praises local stars to the skies or roasts them with glee.

Today, check out these babes, who made us do double takes


Will reluctant babe rise again?

She bagged Babe of the Year back in 2011.

This year, the 1.67m-tall local actress has been nominated again, in the same category.

The down-to-earth 28-year-old said: "It's always very flattering to be nominated. I won it once and I think I can never get used to people calling me babe."

Looking back on 2014, Lim - who has a leading role in Channel 5 drama Mata Mata 2 - agreed that she has had "a very good year".

At the Star Awards in April, she was named Best Supporting Actress for playing a thrice-divorced senior sales manager in the Channel 8 blockbuster The Dream Makers.

On top of that, she took home her third consecutive Top 10 Most Popular Female Artistes award at the ceremony.

She was also nominated in the Best Actress category for her dual roles in drama series Sudden, where she played both a naive lawyer and her cunning twin sister.

But she lost that to veteran actress Chen Liping.

In June, Lim was named Mercedes-Benz Singapore's first female ambassador. She also scored endorsement deals with Japanese skincare brand SK-II and Japanese fashion label Uniqlo.

She said humbly: "There are many pleasant surprises this year and I am very grateful.

"I have not planned for anything like this to happen, and I never thought I would be in this position."

She added: "I hope I won't get used to this.

"I don't want to be too comfortable with all these achievements, so that I can continue to improve further."

On her Babe Of The Year competition Fann Wong and Stefanie Sun, Lim said: "The other nominees are both hot mamas.

"I am very honoured and I hope to be a hot mama like them some day."

"Both of them have huge fan bases. My chances are not too high. I've won it once and I am already very happy."
