As those words left her mouth, she rushed to a few production assistants nearby and tapped one of their shoulders to inquire about the location of the main leads' makeup rooms.
The production assistants were currently plagued with work. The one she had approached realized that she was just a newbie assistant the moment he looked and sized her up. She was an unfamiliar face to him, so he inferred that she was an assistant to a recently debuted actor rather than a bigshot. Thus, he did not concern himself with her and dismissed her in an extremely uncaring and intolerant manner. "Can't you find it yourself? I'm busy here! Stand aside!"
Mu Xi was unexpectedly left out in the cold.
When she was with Qin Zhou as his assistant, even famous directors would greet her with a passionate smile on sight.
Therefore, being looked down on by this lowly production assistant, she turned livid with rage. Just as she returned to her side, she went on a resentful rant. "A bunch of snobs!"
Amidst her ranting, she spotted Yan Bingqing gracefully making her way over to them.
At present, Yan Bingqing was the current 'it' girl in the entertainment industry. Every move she made attracted attention.
She was a fashionista, the 'it' girl, the advertising queen, and the queen of scandals… She was the most popular first-tier actress of Huanyu Entertainment.
However, she did not have any works worth mentioning. Her acting skills were often criticized by the media. Movies with her as the main lead largely had average reviews and terrible receptions – she was known to be a box-office flop.
However, she was absolutely a paragon of beauty and a femme fatale. Her other traits seemed to be of lesser importance when talking about her stunning physical appearance.
While the production assistants dispassionately chased Mu Xi away, at the sight of Yan Bingqing, they did a one-eighty change in attitude and went to her fawningly. They were full of flatteries and waited on her properly.
This time, Mu Xi flared up.
"Who are these people?! Clearly, they're buttering up to her and bullying us!"
She could only complain in subtlety, however. Having followed Qin Zhou long enough, she all along believed in speaking and acting with prudence; the more words one spouted, the more errors one could make.
Moreover, Yan Bingqing had a complicated background. It was best not to offend her.
She might be enraged, but she reminded herself to hold in her temper. She must not get her artiste into any trouble.
Yun Shishi was also a witness to their contrasting attitudes but remained mum.
This was all part of human nature.
"Xiao Mu, cool down. This isn't anything much."
"Ah, Shishi, I'm angry for you!" she raged. She was truly defending her against this injustice.
The two explored the massive studio and soon found the designated makeup room.
"Your makeup room is here!"
Mu Xi pushed the door open and walked in as she declared this. Unfortunately and incidentally, Yan Bingqing was also in the room.
Yun Shishi was a little stunned.
She remembered that her makeup room should be shared with Gu Xingze.
Why was she here, too?
Mu Xi thought that it was also somewhat strange. Pulling a production assistant to the side, she softly inquired, "Handsome, let me ask you; isn't this the makeup room for the main leads?"
Lin Fengtian had specially requested for the main leads to have their own makeup room. For this movie, Yan Bingqing simply had a minor role – making a cameo – so why was she using the main leads' makeup room?
"It is." The assistant scratched his head and explained awkwardly, "This is the makeup room for the two main leads, but Yan Bingqing said that she wants to use this one, too. I suppose superstar Gu Xingze won't be arriving anytime soon, and I'm not really in the capacity to reject her…"
