zaobao : 刘芷绚第6段感情不排除圈内人

May 19, 2010

随着告别作《红白囍事》的落幕,刘芷绚的新传媒生涯也结束了。

即将离开新传媒的刘芷绚谈过五段感情,上一段因为对象是台湾偶像演员范植伟,大受瞩目。

她说,与范植伟自分手后,单身至今,她获得的启发是:“下一次不要太快投入,不过仍不排除圈内人的机会。”

一度风光的新传媒“七公主”之中,记者觉得最美丽的是谢宛谕和刘芷绚。如果谢宛谕的美是耀眼刺目的,有“攻击性”的,那么刘芷绚的美是清淡柔和的,让你在不知不觉间,毫无“抗拒力”。

她们的美貌属于两极,可还是有一点相同,就是在新传媒的生涯都没有长久。

这次是她以全职演员身份所接的最后一个专访。随着告别作《红白囍事》的落幕,她的新传媒生涯也结束了。她微笑说:“我还喜欢演戏,还是会回来的。”

30岁的刘芷绚坦言,未来的合作形式,还在跟新传媒商洽,不过对于合作抱非常乐观的态度。

没有火药味的抗议

“七公主”在后期的评比中,有媒体指她的企图心不强,造成事业上停滞不前。她却不太同意这个说法。“我不知道企图心是指什么,是有公司的人讲过我出席类似记者会的场合时,好像随便穿一件衣服就去,不太尊重场合似的。”

记者想起有一次《未来不是梦》的记者会,刘芷绚穿得还可以,但是跟另一个女主角瑞恩更有星味的装扮比起来,她明显就被比下去。那次的印象一直牢记在记者脑海,思考是否背后的经理人照顾不周的问题。

继续说:“可是对我来说,我不会把打扮想成是企图心。我在同一辈的艺人之中,态度还是比较积极的。我只能承认我没有强烈的时尚感,毕竟我也是入行后才开始喜欢打扮的。”

在马来西亚吉打州浮罗交怡岛长大的她说:“我来自乡下,那是个不注重时尚的地方。我刚到大城市来时,还真有点适应不了。有人批评过我的穿衣品味,但我觉得我是个性务实,不是没有sense。”

她连感觉在抗议的语气,都说得嗅不到火药味。

受伤后不敢期望太多

回顾在新传媒的六年生涯,刘芷绚最喜欢的剧集是,四年前与张耀栋合演,改编自《二分之一缘分》的《情有可缘》。“那时没在意造型,尽管戴着假发,感觉有点邋遢,但演来没有顾虑,也没有包袱。”

四次入选十大最受欢迎女艺人奖的她说,在圈中最开心的不是得奖,因为得奖的喜悦只能维持一两天,而是拍了有突破性的作品,颠覆以往自己的角色,例如《手足》和《情有可缘》。

她说:“我常扮演漂亮的小女人,可是在《情有可缘》就180度转变成男人婆,演完后我真的相信我是男人婆。”

不过,《手足》明显要扶持她上位,可惜剧本惹来恶评,尽管她的演出并非中箭最多,也深受池鱼之殃。身为主角中箭落马,客观分析,这应该是导致她的地位无法再上升,被其他“公主”后来居上的原因。

她释怀地说:“那次的口碑没预期好,确是有点失望,但我对自己的演技还算满意,觉得已尽力就好。形势是很难掌握的,所以心态要调整。那次还蛮受伤的,后来就学会每拍一部戏之后,都不敢期望太多。”

同样的,她最失意的时候,也是角色上无法取得突破时。“我总是事后才懊恼。”她微笑说:“但我刚入行时,谢韶光曾给我们几个新人讲过课,记得他说过分到什么角色不重要,要看你怎么去发挥。”

她也坦言不爱拍通宵戏,像之前拍《美食厨师男》,连熬半个多月的通宵,身心俱疲。“我入行后,也开始有偏头痛。”

与企图心不强艺人为伍

刘芷绚最难舍的好友有郭舒贤、洪乙心、王爱玲、郭蕙雯几个姐妹。

问她是否物以类聚,选择“企图心”不强的艺人为伍?她笑说:“我对人不太设防,所以也希望交这类的朋友。我掏心给你,也希望获得对等的对待。她们的个性都大剌剌的。”

那么“公主”之间因为存在着竞争,是否较难以交心?

她想了想说:“是因为合作的机会不多,总是被分开来拍戏。”像在《红白囍事》,她与欧萱的对手戏就不多过十场。

离开,没有不愉快

刘芷绚谈过五段感情,上一段因为对象是台湾偶像演员范植伟,大受瞩目。这段情最后没有结果,她说:“是距离的问题。分开久了,感觉渐渐有了隔膜,感情慢慢就没有掉了。”

不过对于被传是多情男的他,水瓶座的刘芷绚仍保留好言:“他是比较情绪化些,必须迁就他,但他还是专一的,不会多情。他是双鱼座的嘛,开不开心都会写在脸上。”

她说,自分手后,单身至今,她获得的启发是:“下一次不要太快投入,不过仍不排除圈内人的机会。”她笑说:“以前说过不要交圈内人,但缘分来时……呵呵。”

她表示不急于结婚,离开新传媒后会为创业打拼,把在家乡和妈妈一起经营的spa做好。

她也会继续来往于新马,探索各种工作机会。她说,和本地朋友合作的网上商店(www.rice-day.blogspot.com),虽然每月盈利只有四位数,但仍会继续下去。

她当初是参考日本古董杂货买卖的服务,做起这门生意。她售卖的主要是服装,问她怎么说服别人相信曾被人批评为没有时尚感的人,卖的东西值得光顾?她说,东西在网上陈列,风格简单,大家不妨相信自己的眼睛。

眼前的她瘦了一圈,本来圆圆的脸蛋变尖,原来她刚去柬埔寨当义工,给当地的小孩提供温暖。

还有多余的温暖可以跟别人分享,记者终于相信,她没有带着不愉快离开。

Translation of the article (credits to pearline) :

The reporter feels that the prettiest princesses among the seven are Jesseca and Fiona. If Fiona’s beauty is the seducive type, then Jesseca’s is more to the sweet type. However the fate of these two princesses are the same as they only stay in Mediacorp for a short period of time.

Jesseca mentioned that she still likes acting and will eventually come back to act. The future contract with Mediacorp is still undergoing negotiation but she holds very positive attitude towards the collaboration.

When comparing the 7 princesses, there’s media who pointed out that Jesseca does not have very high expectations on her work, causing her work to be held back. However she doesn’t agree with this statement, as she does not know what high expectations are about, but people from her company told her before that whenever she attends press conference or public events, she seems to just put on any clothes that are not suited for the events.

During The Dream-catchers’ press conference, the reporter recalled that Jesseca wore presentably, however, when compared to her co- partner Rui En, she is sort of being put down because Rui En’s dressing was more fashionable than hers. Jesseca continued saying that she had never associated her dressing as a part of her job. She feels that among the artistes who came into the company with her, her attitude is considered as the more hardworking type.

She admitted that she doesn’t have a strong fashion sense and she only started to dress up well after she entered the industry. This is partly because she comes from Langkawi, a place where they do not place emphasis on fashion. When she first entered the city, she could not really adapt to the environment. Though people have been criticising her fashion sense, she still feels that she has a certain standard towards her dressing and is not like what others who said that she has no sense.

The reporter mentioned that when Jesseca rebuts to all these criticisms, the reporter can’t sense any sarcasm from Jesseca.

Jesseca was asked about her favourite drama, which is Falling In Love. She feels that at that time (while filming that drama), she doesn’t have to care about her image as she’s always wearing a wig and doesn’t have to care about what others think of her.

Jesseca carried on mentioning that though winning Star Awards (Top 10 Most Popular Female Artistes) makes her happy, it only lasts for a short while. However, being able to act a few breakthrough roles such as the one in Falling In Love and Kinship made her very satisfied in this industry.

Mediacorp had tried to promote her in Kinship but it sort of failed due to the script, causing her to lag behind the other princesses. Eventhough Jesseca was disappointed because of this, she was satisfied with her performance in the show. As this situation is uncontrollable, after this show, she dare not put high expectations on future shows. The thing she feels most disappointed with was that her roles often do not get any breakthrough. However, she remembered Xie Shaoguang telling the newcomers (including herself) that the roles they get are not important but rather the importance is placed on the way they deliver the role.

She also mentioned that she doesn’t like to work overnight, recalling the times while filming Romantic Delicacies when she had to work overnight for half a month, causing her to be very exhausted. After she entered this industry, she started experiencing headaches.

Jesseca mentioned that she will miss her good friends in Mediacorp such as Ann Kok, Apple Hong, Ong Ai Leng and Eelyn Kok. When asked whether she chooses her friends who are of the same character of her (does not have very high expectations), she smiled and said that she doesn’t really guard against people and thus hope to make more friends that are of her same character. She hopes that there will be mutual reciprocation within each other – if she treats someone good, she wants the other party to treat her well too.

The reporter then asked whether it is because of the rivalry between the princesses, that hinders the relationship between her and them. Jesseca disagreed as she feels that the collaboration between the princesses in the shows she was involved in is minimal. For example, in New Beginnings, the scenes she had with Jeanette Aw was less than 10.

Jesseca has been in a relationship for 5 times. Her last relationship was with Taiwanese actor, Fan Zhi Wei (Wing Fan). The relationship between Wing Fan and her did not last because of the long distance, and after their relationship was exposed, more problems surfaced and thus causing their breakup. After the breakup, she learned to be more conservative. Last time, she used to say she will not want to date a guy in the entertainment industry, however, she has now changed her mindset and does not reject the possibility of dating an artiste. She also mentioned that she does not feel a need to marry currently.

After she leaves Mediacorp, she will concentrate on her spa business. She will continue to run between Malaysia and Singapore to seek for more job opportunities. Though her rice shop ( http://rice-day.blogspot.com ) only earns a 4-digit amount monthly, she and her friends will still continue to run the biz. When asked how she is going to persuade others to buy the clothes when she herself was  criticised for having no fashion sense, she replied that the clothes sold on the blog are generally simple and they should just visit the website and see for themselves.

The reporter also noticed that Jesseca has slimmed down quite a bit, her initial rounder face has turned sharper. Jesseca then said that she has just went to Cambodia to do voluntary work, helping the children in Cambodia.

The reporter ended by saying that he believes Jesseca did not bring any unhappiness when she leaves Mediacorp.
