Qi Shu Bio – Smartasses Magazine – Lin Li-hui 林立慧 (born April 16, 1976) is a Taiwanese actress and model, born in Xindian District, Taipei County, now New Taipei City. She is best known by her stage name, Shu Qi, and has also been credited as Hsu Chi and Shu Kei. Shu started working part-time as a model while in high school to help her family’s finances, and eventually dropped out of school and moved to Hong Kong at the age of 17 to seek a film career. In 2008 E! named Shu Qi as having the World’s Sexiest Lips.
Shu began her film career in 1996, appearing in the film Han Fu Gang. Later that year, she starred in Derek Yee’s 1996 film, Viva Erotica, for which she received a Best Supporting Actress award at the 16th Hong Kong Film Awards in 1997. In 1999, she appeared with Jackie Chan in the romantic comedy Gorgeous. Since then, she has appeared in mainstream Hong Kong films such as Stanley Kwan’s The Island Tales and Hou Hsiao-Hsien’s critically acclaimed Millennium Mambo for which she received the 2001 Golden Horse Award in Taiwan. In 2002, she appeared in the French action film The Transporter opposite Jason Statham, and Corey Yuen’s So Close, which many consider her breakout role. In 2004, Shu played the lead character in the Hong Kong horror film The Eye 2. In 2005, she won the Best Actress Award at the 2005 Golden Horse Awards for her three roles in Hou Hsiao-Hsien’s Three Times. In 2008, Shu starred in the romantic comedy film, If You Are the One, directed by Feng Xiaogang, which grossed over 364 million yen at the Chinese box office. In 2015, she played the legendary female martial artist Nie Yinniang in The Assassin, which won the Best Director award at Cannes for Taiwanese director Hou Hsiang-Hsien. The martial arts masterpiece was praised for the directorial vision, and it contained only 9 lines of dialogue. In 2016, Shu starred in the Chinese remake of the Julia Roberts romantic comedy, My Best Friend’s Wedding.
From 2006 to 2009, Shu was selected by Kenzo Takada to be part of the advertising campaign for its successful fragrance, Flower by Kenzo. She also worked as a spokesperson for Shiatzy Chen. Shu has been representing Frederique Constant in Asia as a brand ambassador since 2008, and was Emporio Armani’s Asian ambassador for its Fall-Winter 2010 collection.
In 2006, Shu posed for renowned Singaporean photographer Leslie Kee for Kee’s 2006 charity photo-book Super Stars, dedicated to the victims of the 2004 Asian tsunami disaster, which consist of photographs of 300 Asian celebrities by Kee. In 2008, she was a member of the jury of the Berlinale, the Berlin International Film Festival, and a member of the jury at the Cannes Film Festival in 2009. Also in 2009, along with Frederique Constant and the Paint-a-Smile Foundation, Shu repainted the murals on the walls of the cardiology department at the Beijing Children’s Hospital.
Why we think she’s hot:
Meet the female Eric Roberts, as, in only a mere fifteen year span, Shu Qi was so in demand that she did well over sixty-four movies. Though, Eric does that in a week. Either way, you probably recall her best for co-starring alongside Jason Statham in The Transporter, though if things had been just a tad different, you’d probably be remembering her for much more than a few low-rent action flicks. It seems her one time manager, felt it was so important for her to star in a certain TV commercial, that he pulled her from a little project called Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. But hey, at least she has Seoul Raiders under her belt. Regardless of hiring poor career managers, with her iconic pucker, timeless beauty and ability to whoop-ass, we’ll gladly watch Shu Qi’s next sixty B movies.
