A young Chinese actress has complained in a forum post that she was forced by a music video director to go stark naked when shooting a music video for singer Liu Jialiang (刘嘉亮).
The actress in question, who used the alias Ai Mei Xiao Mao Mi (暧昧小猫眯), said the director first asked them to wear just underpants for a bed scene.
But he was not satisfied with the results.
He then demanded they removed their knickers too.
Even though Jialiang opposed the idea, the director was insistent and kept telling them to respect his “artistic vision,” she said in the post.
The actress said she regretted shooting the MV and hoped the director would respect her modesty and delete the nude scenes.
Jialiang’s agent confirmed what the actress said was correct.
She added, however, the director had clearly told them beforehand the MV might require nude scenes and no opposition was raised at that time.
The agent said maybe the actress regretted her actions but went into filming in full knowledge of what was expected.
“Of course, we do not rule out the possibility that she has done this to attract attention.”
This would seem to ignore the fact that she doesn’t want to use her real name.
“Ai Mei Xiao Mao Mi” reiterated to reporters the director did not tell her he required FULL nudity.
“On the day of shooting the MV, the male director did not leave the set. That made me feel under a lot of pressure. I felt very uncomfortable!” she said.
