Zoe Tay brings sexy back
Veteran actress attempts many "first-time" in new local film
"My back should still be okay for the eyes!" jokes Zoe Tay.

Speaking at the press conference of her new film Love Cuts on Monday, the heavily pregnant actress chats openly with reporters about her "nude" scene in the movie.

"I did consider getting a substitute as I thought the scene was too much for me," she explains.

In the movie, the actress plays a 40-year-old mother stricken with terminal breast cancer. Zoe had to bare her back to the cameras in one scene, while her on-screen husband, co-star Kenny Ho, bathes her.

But alas, after much persuasion by the director, Zoe gave the approval to film the scene on her own, refusing a substitute.

"The bathroom scene is necessary to bring out the physical struggles of a breast cancer patient," said director Gerald Lee.

Hong Kong actor Kenny Ho agrees, explaining that the film would portray the feeling of a patient's helplessness better if more skin were shown.



"It's not revealing enough!" quipped the 51 year old.

But for our Caldecott Ah-Jie, the filming of Love Cuts had been no easy feat, having to give many of her virgin attempts for the movie.

Over a span of 20 plus years in acting, this would be - surprisingly - Zoe's first portrayal as a cancer patient.

The actress also had Cantonese dialogues in the film. Not only that, to convincingly depict a terminally ill woman, Zoe had to wear special effects make-up (bald head and thin eyebrows) for the first time.

The experience proved to be an unforgettable one for the 42-year-old.

"I've attempted many types of make-up throughout all these years. I only found out now that special effects make-up can be so tiring! The worst part comes when you remove them; it's so painful that I teared!"


Having won the local audiences over with her seasoned acting chops, it is difficult to imagine that Zoe has her fair share of critics too.

She revealed that she was upset over negative comments made by the film's producer, Lin De, when he visited the crew on site halfway through filming of Love Cuts.

"He told me, 'I'm a little disappointed after seeing the tapes. It wasn't as good as I had imagined. What happened? I had higher expectations from you.' I was sad when I heard that." says Zoe.

But the perfectionist did not give up. "Perhaps I was distracted. I later re-read the script and made myself more focused. Thankfully, there was no need for a re-shoot, and Zhu Hou Ren (executive producer of Love Cuts) was happy after seeing the rough cuts of the film. I only felt relieved then."

The professional star was so involved in the movie that she felt compelled to hide her pregnancy, which she found out mid-way during filming, from the crew, for fear that her situation would affect the production.



Love Cuts, which tells a poignant story of a family on the brim of losing their mother to cancer, also boasts of child actress Regene Lim, who received an award for her acting in this year's Star Award, and Edwin Goh from popular Channel 5 drama, Fighting Spiders.

The two young budding actors play Zoe's son and daughter in the film. And both their acting won rave comments from their on-screen parents, who sang their praises for being able to cry on cue.

How did Regene manage to cry so effortlessly?

"I'm naturally rich in emotions!" said Regene without missing a beat, causing laughter to break out amongst the media present at the press conference.

"Didn't your teacher teach you humility?" on-screen mum Zoe asked her on-screen daughter jokingly.

Thanks Ona for posting the article on the 'Love Cuts' interview. Sad to say, the 8days movie critic only awarded 1 and a half stars for the movie preview. Hope that all of Zoe's fans will not be detered by this rating and still support this movie as Zoe's acting is really good.

Wow Ona, Lucky you. If I were so close to Zoe, I would also stop breathing, she just hv that effect on people who luv her. I remember I was so nervous when I went once to get her autograph at Bugis. Is it true that the box office is not so good as compared to Alamak's Old cow eat green grass? I tot I saw something in the wan pao or something? I guess this type of genre dont attract many audience, students and young people will not want to watch such movies, action pack movies, comedies etc. I hvent catch it yet, my hubby promised to watch it this friday with me.

ohhh so I am not the only one who gets so nervous seeing Zoe? hehe

you know ah... I was so useless. There were so many things I wanna say about the movie. But I was just too cold feet. I cannot imagine, at work, i am the head of two depts. But in front of Zoe, I became a mouse. *self slap*


About what the papers say... well, comedies always attract ppl one. But do ppl think about the movie or talk about it after they step out of the cinema? Well, Love Cuts does have this effect. My hubby and I walked out of the cinema not talking at all cuz we were pondering.. very much pondering. After some time, the very first thing that my hubby talked about was to ask me whether I have gone for any mammogram. After that, I called polyclinics and hospitals to find out and now have booked for a mammogram next week.

Yes, the old cow movie, I believe, makes ppl laugh, make ppl happy. It's a good movie to watch with friends. But Love Cuts is a movie that educates people in a very tasteful way. And probably saves lives, if ppl heed the message and start to go for checkups. I must say it is the best local movie ever. Yes, initially I went to watch it's just because of Zoe. But what I got out of it was abundant.

We can't force ppl to watch this movie, if they are not into this kind of serious storyline or sad story. But we know for sure that everyone who watched this have complemented the movie and Zoe's acting. We can google this movie and see for ourselves how many bloggers have already sung praises.

Yes Ona, Zoe does hv that effect on her fans, we are not afraid of her, but in awe of her and get speechless. True what you said, many people go watch 'Haunted Changi' but so far most of the comments I see are not so gd, while those who watched 'Love Cuts' hv better comments. I kn we cant force people to watch, e.g my hubby who is not a fan, it is so diff to get him to promise to go with me, duno whether this friday he will back out or not. And the thing is, he refuse to let me go with other people. Now there is a workshop organised by Guardian on 25th Sept, and there will be a free screening at 2pm for registered participants ($5/-) registration fees, those who want to listen to the healthtalk and then watch the movie, can register online at guardian.com.sg. I just sad that the movie not doing so well, otherwise it would be a good anniversary gift for Zoe (her wedding anniversary 22th sept). Well as long as she gets all the good feedback on her acting, I suppose that is enuf.

my hubby also not a fan.
on the day that I wanted to go watch, he teased me "Cheyyyyy, you everytime want to support your Zoe Tay!" I said to him "If you don't wan to watch, I will go alone lor". Then he quickly made arrangements and made time to go with me.

my hubby also! Somemore he sometimes disturbs me by telling me that he supports Fann (he likes to joke about the Zoe-Fann rivalry thing). But then that time when I saw Zoe at the First Parent Congress, he encouraged me to take picture with Zoe. Just that me cold feet.

Everytime we pump petrol, if he sees me happily grab a magazine and put at the cashier for him to pay for it together with the petrol, he will sure say "Must be got Zoe Tay again!"

Haha Ona, at least your hubby better, he go watch 'Love cuts' with you, last friday my hubby got meeting so we didnt go to c Zoe's movie yet. Anyway he said he signed up for the Guardian workshop this sat, where there is talk on breast cancer, and other anti aging beauty talks, which later has the screening of 'Love cuts' in the afternoon. Looks like I hv to wait till this sat. He said like that more meaningful, than for him to watch this movie only, he likes action movies with Jet Lee, Donnie Yen, etc.
