Hello there folks. Yet another post about Bi’s amazing physique. As we all know, it was sculpted and toned to perfection for his first Hollywood movie “Ninja Assassin”. So what did Bi’s leading lady, Naomie Harris have to say about Bi’s bod? She broke it down in a promo interview last year:
“Its shocking. Its amazing. He looks incredible. I mean, its just extraordinary. I had to do, um, a shower scene with him in the movie, and he takes his clothes off, and the first day, I just couldn’t keep it together, I was just, like, I just burst out laughing because I was just like, its amazing, its like its not real. And then James had to tell me, to yeah, I had to get my act together a bit, and keep it together. But its hard working with a body like that.”
See the whole interview here.
Can you imagine being thisclose to the fineness that is Bi? The thought alone is enough to make one faint. Anyway, I thought it was funny how the part in Naomie’s response about filming a shower scene with Bi made the final cut as well. Personally, I think its better NOT to know that there was a shower scene, because now my imagination starts running away with me, lol. In this case, ignorance would’ve been bliss.
But why did they take out the shower scene? One reason I thought of is that Bi has a squeaky clean image, and perhaps his management group could have reasoned that portraying Bi as a hot stud would disappoint or hurt the fans? I mean, I get where they are coming from, but I really would have liked to see his range on camera in that department. Can I get a witness?? Now another reason I could think of is the ugly old stereotype that many Asian actors have to face: being portrayed as sexless, weak, nerdy, etc. I would like to think that we are in a much more advanced society, but I still see things that are just so narrow-minded. I certainly hope that has nothing to do with why the shower scene didn’t make the final cut. I mean, really?? So Raizo can go around and decapitate and slaughter folks with the best of them, but he can’t get it on with a beautiful lady?? Just sayin’….>:(
