Singaporean director Jack Neo and the cast of his action comedy Killer Not Stupid attended the film’s charity screening in Taipei yesterday (Jan 15).
Taiwanese actress Amber An sports a number of eccentric looks in the movie, including some very unattractive ones. One of her most shocking disguises has her sporting a giant mole - complete with hair sprouting out of it - and fake crooked teeth.
“When I first found out I had to become ‘ugly’ for the role, I didn’t think too much about it, but I never expected it to be this bad!” she said, quipping, “I’ve already been single for so long, but this makes me worried that I will single for life!”
The 34-year-old added that some plots in Killer Not Stupid were so ridiculous that she could not control her laughter, making it difficult to stay in character. “The last scene in particular was so absurd that I just could not act properly,” she said. “I was laughing so hard that my entire body was shaking.”
And it looks like Jack will continue to include comedic elements in his work. “People have asked me if I want to make more serious movies, but even if the script were serious, I would end up finding a way to turn it into a comedy,” he said. “If I see an opportunity to make something funny, I will do it!”
