“It’s too much; it’s just too much…”
Her face flushed in anger. Her hands balled up into fists with the knuckles turning white.
Her assistant hurriedly helped her to the couch. Sitting her down, she comforted, “Shishi, don’t be mad. You are about to start production; it won’t be easy to apply makeup on an angry, wrinkled face, you know?”
Mu Xi tried to humor her to no avail. She sat rigidly on the couch; her fists lay stiffly on her knees.
Her face was pale and white as a sheet of paper.
The assistant sighed sympathetically. After pouring some warm water, she passed the glass to her hands and said thoughtfully, “As an artist and a public figure, such things will continue to happen in the future! You must be prepared psychologically. You’ll face malicious words, slander, gossip, and even threats every day or even every minute while in this industry! Not everyone in this world is kind. Besides, humans are selfish by nature, aren’t we? Gu Xingze has such a huge fanbase. His official following is a billion, breaking the Guinness world record! That’s still not counting those unregistered fans. With such a big fanbase, there are bound to be a few spiteful ones around.”
She consoled her coherently.
The actress listened and her body gradually relaxed.
The junior continued. “Shishi, you face so many malicious speculations and slander because you are outstanding! Sometimes, an exceptional person will give off a glare that turns some people off, so you need not take this matter to heart! I’ll get someone to check on the sender.”
“It’s not necessary.” She forced herself to smile. “There’s no need for that.”
Just as what her assistant had said, there was no need to pay attention to the work of a malicious person.
There was no point in stupidly returning a bite from a mad dog, was there?
Composing herself again, she said neutrally, “Get Ding Ning to apply makeup on me now.”
“Okay.” Her aide smiled in return.
After consoling the actress for the last time, she quickly went out to find the stylist.
For this production, the director emphasized on the need for an innocent and pure look for her. She was to be the nation’s campus belle in ‘The Love Diary’.
Since this coincided with the release of ‘The Green Apple’ in the theaters, the program could tap on the movie’s popularity.
Once her makeup was in place, she changed into a dress for a clean-cut look and got ready for the recording.
Along the corridor, she bumped into the superstar.
He wore a pure white shirt for this episode, which fit the image of a nation’s prince charming.
She recalled his character design in the script as the SNAG and could not help smiling to herself.
His dressing was very fitting for the character design.
When he saw her, there was an instant look of captivation, which was immediately replaced by a calm demeanor.
“Have you memorized the script yet?” he asked brashly, his eyes looking gentle.
She nodded but then continued with a look of misery. “I thought that live reality shows are spontaneous but it turns out that there’s a script to follow and even the dialogue is pre-written.”
“Well, you can be spontaneous if the situation requires it,” he explained.
She was surprised. “Really?”
