You would think for someone who has been on numerous red carpets (hello Star Awards!), taking to the red, sorry, jade carpet at the recent Crazy Rich Asians premiere in Hollywood would be a well, literal walk in the park. Not for Pierre Png, though. Maybe it was the sweltering 35 degrees Celsius heat, or maybe it was just plain ol’ nerves, but when the 44-year-old showed up at the TCL Chinese Theatres, he was, in his own words, “shitting in his pants”. Thankfully, the actor wasn’t being literal ’cos it would have been a disaster as he was in an all-white Hugo Boss suit. He talks to us about the history-making event, what happened on the big day and making new friends in high places.
