Actress Shao Xiaoshan (邵小珊), known as Zhang Ziyi‘s stand-in in some bathing and sex scenes in Feng Xiaogang’s 2006 blockbuster “The Banquet“, recently revealed on her Sina Blog that the ugly casting couch is dominant in China’s entertainment circle, and an A-list actress once pocketed 10 million yuan for trading a one night sex favor to a businessman.
In an interview later, Shao also out-spoke that Chinese female celebs have clear price tags for their dinner services and sex services. And mostly, their agents help pimp them out for any kind of payoffs. Interestingly now, there are even actors who prostitute themselves too.
“Casting couch is prevailing (in the entertainment circle). From little known new comers to A-list celebs, they all experienced various sex services requests.” Shao Xiaoshan assured the public that the sex scandal allegations of celebs aren’t groundless.
But when asked who the A-list actress involved in the 10 million yuan sex service is, she refused to disclose more details, though there already were speculations among the public that she could refer to Zhang Ziyi who was ever rumored to have made 700 million yuan from sleeping with the rich and powerful figures, particularly with the deposed former Chongqing boss Bo Xilai, over the last decade.
Shao only said that when the actress was once asked why she made money that way as a famous actress, she replied, she had to earn as much money as possible while still young as one day she’ll be old and unpopular.
In Shao’s blog post, she also exposed that many models prostitute themselves for quick cash too, because they live in a luxury life style, renting expensive houses and hiring nannies.
Then Shao recounted her own experience, telling that she was once asked at a hotel room whether she was willing to trade sex to a businessman from Macau, who offered 1 million yuan for a week long rumpy bumpy in the boss’s luxury yacht. But she angrily refused it, throwing an ashtray to the disgusting pimp.
By the end of the blog post, Shao also said she was confused one time on a news that a female singer was put to jail because of having sexual relationship with a government official. But later she learned that the singer has another title as a military personnel. So when the official was deposed, she was investigated too.
The blog entity has received much attention on the Internet, with many criticizing it is a tasteless stunt to gab publicity for herself though.
