Celebs get asked very odd questions from time to time.
On a recent episode of new Chinese variety show 50km Tao Hua Wu, where a bunch of celebs work together to build a heritage resort, Shu Qi was asked why she’s “still an actress at 45”.
While other actresses might have taken umbrage at such an ageist question, Shu Qi handled the situation with aplomb, saying, “I can’t help it, I’m too popular”.
Her witty response was a hit among netizens who praised the actress for the way she tackled the question.
This wasn’t the only time Shu Qi put her high EQ to good use in potentially awkward situations on the show.
