Hugh Jackman, who was recently in Singapore to promote his upcoming movie X-Men: Days of Future Past, filmed a car commercial with Taiwanese actress Shu Qi, and later celebrated her birthday for her at a restaurant yesterday.
At the launch of the Toyota automobile Levin in Guangzhou, a 15-minute commercial (which resembled a Hollywood action movie) was shown, in which brand ambassador Shu Qi and the X-Men star shared a romantic kiss.
In April, Shu Qi also secretly flew to Los Angeles to film a micro-movie for the commercial, which was directed by Transporter 3 director Olivier Megaton.
A crew member revealed that at that time, when Hugh Jackman realised it was Shu Qi’s birthday, he researched for a restaurant immediately and asked the crew to bring her there. Not only was he attentive at the filming site, but he also mimicked her ‘peace’ sign as they took selfies together.
Although Hugh was busy with X-Men promotional activities and was unable to turn up yesterday, Shu Qi said that she was delighted to be able to work with him.
As the date was May 20, which can be read as ‘I love you’ in Mandarin, Shu Qi wished everyone a good day. She even post online: “2014520, on this memorable day, pluck up your courage and confess your love. Love you forever, I love you.”
Netizens then speculated that she was declaring her love for rumoured boyfriend Stephen Fung, but her good friend said that Shu Qi is actually waiting for someone to confess.
