RBKD: Toggle盘点10位来自单亲家庭的艺人,看他们如何反转逆境成为今日红星,其中就包括瑞恩。她17岁时,父母协议离婚,而瑞恩就跟随了父亲,继母与奶奶生活。当初踏入演艺圈是希望感受别人对她的关心与重视,但她逐渐改变这个想法,细心钻研演技,因此在历届《红星大奖》与《亚洲电视大奖》中多次荣获 “最佳女主角”的头衔。

另外,瑞恩不受约束与坚持做自己的态度也得到了多人的敬佩与喜爱,让她成为本地演艺圈独树一格的女演员。

INTERVIEW EXCLUSIVE: I pick the beauty brains of the fabulously forthright Singapore actress and new L’Oréal Paris face Rui En, who spills the tea on everything from her ‘auntie’ aspirations and the secret behind a camera-ready complexion to her shall we say, disposition for drag queen diva-dom

“Let’s be real, we’re all drag queens in this business.”

Bam, right off the bat, just like that. This chat is shaping up to be a good one.

Let’s pull back a sec and set the scene for that rip-roaring zinger of a pull quote, shall we. Singapore small screen princess Rui En is holding court at celeb haunt Hairloom Salon, flanked by a flurrying scrum of face painters and stylists; it’s bustle and bedlam everywhere.

Meanwhile, the subject of this story is swathed in a slinky satin halterneck for the occasion, looking regal as hell and cool as a cucumber in the sultry Saturday sun.

And as for yours truly? I’m seriously sweating bullets at meeting my girl crush in the flesh, but more on that later.

If you’re late to the party, here’s a brisk little dossier on the woman of the hour: 33-years-old at time of writing; multiple Best Actress champ at the annual Singapore Star Awards; reigning Queen Regent of Caldecott Hill (given Fann Wong’s burgeoning bun in the oven); and one truly fabulous “drag queen” in the making.

Ah yes, let’s circle back to the cold opening. Rui En’s risque rejoinder comes in response to my rather sly remark on the sooty eyes and sexy scarlet smackers she’s rocking at four in the afternoon – all very lady of the night, if you will, but you’ve got to hand it to the good-natured lass for being able to laugh at herself.

Which brings us very nicely indeed to the whys and wherefores of my crush on the woman. You have her admirable chutzpah, for one – incredibly rare in this age of micro-managed stardom. You also have to factor in the nostalgia. Rui En’s someone most of us early millennials grew up ogling on the boob tube; indeed, she’s pretty much the only local post-Fann actress I have any affinity for, really.

Then there’s the skin situation. Having inspected her mug up close for a good half-hour, I’m happy to report that Rui En’s complexion is well-nigh flawless. Having a mien that’s molded from porcelain comes in very handy indeed when you’re the first Singaporean face for L’Oréal Paris’ Youth Code range of rejuvenating elixirs.

Obligatory sponsors’ plug: Use Youth Code Boosting Serum and look like Rui En! (All jesting aside, the product’s an exquisite entry-level anti-ager that’s great to have on your vanity table.)

Oh, and Rui En has a super stylin’ sense sense of fashion. Noticing my splashy fish-embossed Spring 2014 sweater (not worn with the runway’s white eyeliner, more’s the pity), the actress looks me in the eye and smiles: “You’re big on Kenzo, I see.”

See what I mean when I say she’s the ultimate girl crush? Read on for more beauty bits and bytes from the Best Actress Ever:

1. The camera makes you 10 pounds heavier and 10 facial blotter sheets oilier.

ere’s a nifty selfie-taking tip. Rui En says most filmographers she’s worked with are leery of the dewy K-Beauty finish: “The lens really emphasises everything, so skin that’s perfectly matte in real life will appear as having a sheen on screen.”

Of course, that’s small change when weighed against the apocryphal 10 pounds the camera adds to one’s frame: “I’ve grown used to the aunties, bless them, who always tell me I’m not as fat as I appear on the tellie. Part of the job, I guess!”

In any case, Rui En appears to enjoy getting wet for laughs: “My complexion’s usually a little more ‘wet’ than what most TV people are used to from other artistes, but that’s just the way I like it.”

Rui En credits her longtime partner-in-crime and face painter Sam for shoving her onto the K-Beauty bandwagon: “Thanks to him, I’m quite comfortable with highlighting fluids and illuminating pens; besides, when your face is too matte, it can read as flat and two-dimensional.” Future directors, now you know who to blame for your leading lady’s gorgeous glow!

2. About that “drag queen” business …

No, Rui En is most emphatically not using the epithet in a derogatory way.

Some context is in order. When quizzed on her favourite type of look when swishing down the Star Awards red carpet, this is what the starlet had to say, and I quote verbatim: “Falsies, liner, the whole works. We’re all drag queens in this business.”

Well, colour me surprised. I didn’t know gents like say, George Young were secret burlesque performers, but whatever you say, Rui En.

3. You have L’Oréal Paris foundie to thank for Rui En’s acting accolades. Sort of, maybe.

Get this, for all of her relative youth and socially reticent schtick, Rui En’s a bona fide thespian, a really big fish in a tiny red pond.

To wit: She’s swiped three consecutive biggies from 2011 through 2013 (two Best Actress trophies at the Star Awards and Best Actress in a Leading Role at the Asian Television Awards 2012) and says beauty plays a plum role in prompting her to get into the psyche of a character: “Most people perceive makeup as just a cosmetic prop, but if I were playing say, a go-getting professional, I’ll ask for a really lovely sheer base, something like L’Oréal Paris True Match, for instance, to help me look and feel polished for the part.”

Oh, and Rui En’s one of those touchy-feely types for whom scents mean more than the sum total of its molecules, in a manner of speaking. Let her explain: “Once filming has ended, I find myself unable to use the same perfume from the role again. Once it’s done, it’s done. I want to leave it behind.”

(Somewhat interesting aside: I’ve noticed that creative individuals tend to have the same sort of visceral emotional reaction to scents – just ask Amy Adams, who very politely but pointedly declined to reveal the smells which could conceivably make her weep.)

4. She’s really looking forward to becoming an auntie … and swears she’ll never go under the knife, ever. No kidding.

When asked for her personal style heroine, Rui En says she’s all about the cigarette pants, tailored tuxedos and defiant sense of ease about the First Lady of Cinema: “I’d love to be like Katharine Hepburn in the future – she allowed herself to age with dignity on screen; one might even refer to Kate in her later days as an ‘auntie’ in local-speak, you know.”

Rui En transitioning from bright-eyed ingenue to red-hot star and full-blown national treasure? You best believe it.

Now, while we’re on the topic, I’ll note that catty industry commentators have long murmured about the provenance of Rui En’s eggshell-smooth forehead, but the actress (she’s only 33, for mascara’s sake!) insists she’s a proponent of “natural” beauty.

Indeed, Rui En makes a pretty impassioned and eloquent case against the entertainment industry’s fetishisation of youth. In her own words: “I really, really hate ageism and the pervasive notion in the regional celeb scene that being young and thin are the only barometers of beauty.”

“So no, I don’t think I’ll ever go down that route [of plastic surgery], simply because it’s a neverending cycle. So you might start with a little lipo here and then you’ll start seeing other bits of yourself you’ll want to fix, and then the next … I don’t want to tumble down that rabbithole.”

Now, saying that they have no qualms with aesthetic augmentations has almost become a stock answer for celebs – the more cynical among us might read it as a fallback plan in case they’re ever caught having work done in future – but I can only speak for myself when I say that I do take her at (non-Botoxed) face value.

5. Rui En fans, here’s how to pay lip service to your idol, so to speak.

Favourite shade and brand of lipstick?

Rabid Rui En supporters, drumroll please – she absolutely adores L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Moist Matte in P502 Cherry Crush, although she’ll have you know that she’s still very much an eye girl. “I’m more of an eye person, really; most of my fans will know that my signature look involves lots of liner.”

And she does indeed have a fascinatingly fanatical fanbase, the most fervent of which must surely be the “official” one. RBKD, short for “Ruì Bù Kě Dāng”, is a registered fan club with its punny monicker playing on a popular Chinese proverb to mean – and no groans, now – “Rui En is unstoppable”. I’m counting on your page clicks, RBKD guys and girls!

Wrapping up now. When I compliment Rui En on her choice of lipstick, she smiles and hands it over like a queen bestowing a spare jewel to her jester. That half-used L’Oréal lippie is still squirrelled away in my weekender. Guys, you know what to do. The tube goes to the highest bidder!

不可能的可能

瑞恩.陈罗密欧

塔斯马尼亚 独家直击

《骤变》塔斯马尼亚9日拍摄,他和她奉旨谈情说爱制造浪漫。

回到戏里5年前的邂逅,那个只有他们的世界,一字一句一举一动,暧昧甜蜜滋长中,美好得很动人。

原以为戏外独来独往酷酷的她会秉持一贯”各自精彩”的作风,岂料…两条平行线原来也有交汇的一天,冰山终有被劈开之时。人生,其实没有这么多以为。

文: 黄敏玮

咖啡座避雨取暖,5分钟闲聊。求上镜好看、才穿3层的陈罗密欧,很得意地偷笑身上囊着5、6层冬衣的瑞恩像个肉粽一个,“你看她包到这么圆!哈哈哈。”

-莎拉曼卡市集(Salamanca Market)开工,瑞恩趁几分钟空档发挥口中的“女人本色”,认真逛街,结果越逛越远,陈罗密欧第一时间叫得大大声:“Minion!找你!”

-瑞恩牧羊场上单脚立换靴,陈罗密欧连忙扶着,但不忘调侃一番:“乖,穿鞋!我们去gai gai!”听到难以站稳的瑞恩“啊”声不断,他又调皮假装帮孕妇生产:“啊~加油!”

-摄影师一拍陈罗密欧,就必须花好一段时间对焦,唔,据说是因为他五官太立体,有一定难度。冷不防一旁的瑞恩“酸”他,“有人整容啦!”眼镜简直碎一地。冰山公主被对手开玩笑,亦会开对手玩笑?怎。么。可。能?

诸如此类情景前所未见,就算是去年随瑞恩与戴向宇澳门拍摄《微笑正义》,亦只见一喊卡两人就向左走向右走各忙各的场面。

“我就是这样讲话的,哈,她很习惯了。大概觉得我是个rude kid吧!”陈罗密欧说。

才不信他Day 1就敢如此任意妄为。事前必定老早拟定好“备战策略”吧?

“之前听大家说,她是独来独往的,我也是这么觉得,所以很紧张,每天都在想:怎么做彼此才会更舒服一点?也不敢乱跟她讲话和玩,刚开始会比较小心一点,很客气,客气到不像情侣的感觉。我觉得她也感觉到我很紧绷,不敢做一些东西,所以她会主动帮我。后来,我习惯了她做工的方式,我一习惯一个人,pattern就开始出来了,会跟她讲废话开玩笑,她也会对我翻白眼。一来一往,就比较舒服了。

我们拍戏一overnight就会变很high,她会用印度腔讲话,很好笑。之前‘Despicable Me’的minions她很喜欢,我们就一直笑一直笑,用minions的语言‘banana banana’这样讲话。她ok啦,没有我想象中、也没有别人形容中的那么冷。”

从来没吃闭门羹?

“我也是会看她的肢体语言的啦,从她给的眼神,会知道:不要去烦她!又或者如果我try玩一下,没有反应我就bye!走掉咯!So far so good,她没有怎么样!”

谈她,从头到尾满满感激。

“她真的帮了我很多。有时NG太多次害到她,我会很内疚担心,因为她得重演,但她每次都是:‘不要紧,再来一次’,没有给我压力。如果要的话,她可能给一个脸弄一些声音,我就很可能会更糟更紧张。但她一直很帮我,我的自信也因此慢慢建立起来。”

瑞恩不只一次私下探问:“他跟你说了我什么坏话?”

好奇心不免被挑起,究竟她为何如此在意,到底有什么话可以让他讲…

“哈,不是啦。他说话有时候太直,不过他没有恶意的。他比较不会想:万一得罪她,万一说错话,怎么办?其他人就比较会小心。他是这么天真的一个人,在演艺圈也算难得啦。

有一次,我、怡霏跟他在拍法庭戏,他突然问我:为什么你没有Twitter、Facebook、Instagram?我就说,因为我觉得这些东西让生活很复杂。我不要,我的生活已经够复杂了,我不希望花时间在post这个写那个。因为艺人身份,你必须想:Post这个会不会怎样?必须很小心。他就冒出一句话,而且是很认真的:是不是你的era是没有这些东西的?Era咧!用中文说是‘时代’,意思就是说我很老啦!我跟怡霏就酸了他半个钟头:是咯,我们的era要on course去学怎么上Instagram!他都不敢出声,只是坐在那边一直笑,笑到耳朵都红了,哈哈。他就是一个这样的人,我还真的不知道他会冒出什么东西,有时还蛮担心他会跟记者讲什么。我有劝他,以后跟记者讲话,请不要这样,至少要先想了才讲。”

眼中的他,是个单纯男孩,“跟他,其实有一点点像在哄小孩。”

劝新人?哄小孩?!真的不像她会做的事。

“他是个比较特殊的状况,其实一开始我已经知道这次对他来讲是一个很大的挑战。他也有跟我说,跟我对,他的压力更大,虽然我不是故意的。以前我会觉得,我就拍好我的戏,其他东西不要去管,但人越成熟,就会放下一些自己。以前的我算是比较自我,现在我会把自己放在别人的角度去看,我可以了解他第一次当第一男主角,又是跟我对戏,压力很大,每天看到它,他都一直在瘦。所以我就决定:Ok,我需要帮他,尽量让他舒服一点。能帮就帮,我也没有想要得到什么回报。可以帮到新人,给一些advice,是一件好事。”

是乐在其中的。

手捧热饮料在农场木屋外欣赏风景,古桥上坐着凝望水面…沿途一有时间,瑞恩便“消失”一阵子,享受美景与独处时间。

“太美了,真的。开工的第一天,我就这么觉得,开始哭,他们全都以为是因为我被风刺到眼睛,哈哈。”

下一个目的地,锁定在几年前曾经到访,美得也让她落泪的巴黎。

这几年档期爆满,几乎零缝隙休息,可能吗?

“接下来要等《警徽天职3》开拍,大概有几个月,休息时间应该是有史以来最长的。也是我要求的的啦,因为我也觉得要停下来,重新找一些灵感。是时候充电,我需要让自己进步。我还是给自己那么大的压力,而观众对我的要求跟期望也越来越高。”

三樽视后奖座,有一定重量,“《最火搭档》,已经到了那样的境界,怎样去超越,对我来说是一个挑战。我也跟《最火》的故事人聊过,我们也算是朋友啦,他也会觉得,自己已经写了一个这样的剧本,让很多人印象深刻,怎么去超越,是很大的压力。

从新人到有知名度到比较红,不同阶段会有不同挑战,不是你已经红了、有一个status了,就会没有压力,反而是有更大压力的。很多人都希望可以把你打倒。这是当然的,人都是这样子的。我尽量不要去想,但旁边的人会提醒。”

活得潇洒什么都不care?难啦,当红花旦如她,也有顾虑担忧。

“没有什么是永远的,也没有什么是确定的啦,除了死亡和税务。”

与瑞恩的9日相处,还有这些发现…

~“Sandy,I love you!You must be tired!”她用近乎唱歌的可爱调调,对赶羊后、跑得很喘得牧羊犬说。是爱狗之人,但碍于与怕狗的婆婆住在一起,未能落实养狗梦。

~怕冷的她,这次花了上千元网购冬装。“因为上次拍《未来不是梦》,拍到很痛苦,那是第一次去有下雪的地方,我根本不知道应该买什么,钱也不多,也不怎么舍得花,去到那边可以传达6、7层,还是冷死。所以这次,我决定我不要痛苦了。”闲话家常时会大力推销很保暖的鹅毛大衣,亦会打探我脚上的靴子到底暖不暖耐不耐,哈,很女人咯。

~谈逛街,她的眼睛永远闪闪发光。途经市集某摊位其实没多久,就已买下熏衣草暖暖熊,哇,高手!她笑称shopping不为自己,“几年前年级比较小,我买的东西都是给自己的,一大箱都是我自己的东西,现在大了,会到处看有没有东西可以买给别人。就像刚才买的暖暖熊,就是买给婆婆的,因为她的腰部是很好。”

~开工第一日,已到处换澳币。不会吧,钱这么快就花光?“我都没有买什么东西,虽然我昨天太累不想跟他们出去吃,叫了room service啦。我到现在还搞不懂钱花到哪里去了,哈哈,可能放在房间?”她一脸疑惑。原来她,也有迷糊的时候。

适逢陈罗密欧NG、台词念不好的时候。爱开玩笑的监制对他说:“斌辉来了!” – 剧组最爱跟他开的玩笑,意思是:要换不NG的阿哥当男主角了!

虽然瑞恩事后悄悄透露:“哎呀,酸他,表示剧组已经把他当自己人了。最主要是,大家看到他是认真的,没有在玩。”

By Ilsa Chan

Actors turn down roles for a host of reasons.

Who: Rui En
No to: Kissing & intimate scenes

Call Rui En a prude or unprofessional but the local actress has openly voiced that she does not do kissing or intimate scenes. Oh, and she doesn’t give a rat’s a** about what you think either.

In 2008, the actress reportedly turned down the lead role in TV drama The Defining Moment due to a rape scene in the script.

While her refusal to compromise might limit her opportunities, it does not seem to have hurt her popularity or career.

The 32-year-old has bagged Best Actress trophies every year since 2011 – twice in the Star Awards (2011 and 2013), and once in the Asian Television Awards (2012) – and has made it to the Star Awards Top 10 Most Popular Female Artiste list (decided by public voting) every year since 2005.

You might say she’s got attitude, we prefer character. Stick to your guns, Rui En. Why join them when you can beat them?

张启怀报道

本地演艺圈刮起一阵改名风潮,你是不是也被艺人们的新旧名字搞得有点乱了呢?

事实上,艺人改名已不是什么新鲜事。有些艺人为了增加人气这么做,有些为了健康,也有些纯粹觉得新艺名更好听、更亲切。

不过,改名是否真的就能够改运吗?

xinmsn盘点改过名字的本地艺人,有谁改名后演艺表现突飞猛进,又有谁星途始终不见起色?

芮恩 〉瑞恩

改名几次: 2

改名改运: 3 颗星

瑞恩2002年出道时,公司替她取了艺名芮恩。她曾以芮恩之名发行了一张同名专辑,但在乐坛表现平平,之后却在本地电视圈闯出一片天。其冰冷公主的鲜明形象,让她在一众公主花旦中出位。

2008年,累积了一定演技与人气的她,宣布改用自己的本名瑞恩,并再度发行中文专辑。

瑞恩当时表示,一直以来自己好像穿着不合身的外套,这次改用本名,有着将最真实的瑞恩呈现在观众与粉丝面前的意义。

xinmsn 讲评:

有趣的是,瑞恩的运势似乎随着改名,有了明显的进步。2011年,她凭《我在你左右》夺得“最佳女主角”;2年后,再度以《最火搭档II》拿下此奖。

同时,瑞恩的粉丝团“瑞不可当”也是本地粉丝俱乐部当中规模最庞大的之一,举凡任何投票有关活动,粉丝都会铆足全力为偶像投票,瑞恩也几乎每每都榜上有名!

By Gladys Chung

It comes as a surprise when actress Rui En says some of her favourite bags are brand-less canvas totes, and that she used to be a tomboy who hated dresses.

After all, the 32-year-old was dressed in a flattering and slinky Grecian-style toga dress for this interview and photoshoot.

And who can forget the beautiful plum Christian Dior tulle gown she wore at the Star Awards show in April, where she won her second Best Actress award. She also won that night for Favourite Female Character and Top 10 Most Popular Artistes.

“It was an Academy Awards-ready gown, I chose it just three weeks before the event, and I looked forward to wearing it.”

“It was ‘princessy’ but the dark colour made it classic and ‘me’.”

She admits she could have handled the dress more elegantly that night. She had seemed exasperated at times when she had difficulty moving about in the gown.

“It was lightweight but there were so many layers of fabric and I was kind of wrestling with it,” she says.

“But I promise I will get better at this.”

This disarming honesty and lack of pretension, on top of her pretty girl-next-door looks and acting chops, have won Rui En fans, as well as the attention of marketers.

In May, she was named one of the faces of the L’Oreal Paris Youth Code skincare range. She joins a roll call of A-list international celebrities, such as Gong Li, Li Bingbing and Fan Bingbing, who also front the range of skincare.

The ambassadorship is apt as Rui En is a self-professed beauty junkie. She loves trying new skincare products and make-up and uses a different mask every night on her dry and intolerant skin.

To keep healthy and give her face that extra glow, she works out religiously with home videos. And every morning, she downs green detox drinks made from recipes she found on the Internet.

Rui En started her career in show business when she was 20. But the industry started to take serious notice of her only in 2011 when she won her first Best Actress trophy at the Star Awards that year for her role as a widow in the drama serial With You.

Rui En says the nomination in 2011 made her pay more attention to her clothes.

“It was the first time I had to dress up properly for an event and I had so many choices. I felt very lucky but confused too.”

“My sense of style was not set then, so it was just a whirlwind of trying on all sorts of outfits and just seeing what worked for my image.”

In the end, she picked a steel grey Hermes pantsuit, with a black belt tied stylishly and provocatively around her neck.

These days, she knows instinctively what she likes: “Nothing revealing, but classic, simple, clean and accessorised with diamonds.”

7 things in her bag

1. Soul by Ludacris headphones

This was a Christmas present I received last year. Its sound quality is good and it blocks out noise. I love music, and listen to everything from country to K-pop. When I’m travelling, I’ll plug into this and be in my own world.

2. Museli bars

I eat these when I am shooting and have to be constantly on the go. They are quite sweet and taste good, and they keep me from bingeing on the unhealthy stuff.

3. L’Oreal Youth Code prodigious rejuvenating pre-essence

I apply this essence on my bare skin and it helps everything else that I use later, such as serums and moisturisers, to be more easily absorbed.

4. Insect Repellent

This is an insect repellent soldiers use; I bought it from the army market in Beach Road. It is a must whenever I’m filming outdoors. It does not smell but is so potent that it is not safe to be applied on the skin. I apply it on the hem of my clothing instead and the mosquitoes do not come near me.

5. Memoirs of a radical lawyer by Michael Mansfield

I’m currently reading this for research purposes as I play a lawyer in the upcoming Chinese legal drama Sudden. Whenever I take on a new role, I will read about the character’s occupation as it helps me with my acting.

6. Creative electronic chinese dictionary

A friend gave this to me as a birthday present two or three years ago. It tells me how to pronounce Chinese words I’m unfamiliar with and their meanings.

7. Scripts

I feel naked without my scripts. This is for Sudden, which I am currently working on and which airs in September on MediaCorp Channel 8. I prefer physical copies because I can make notes in the margin.

Her bag

A fan gave this to me. I own about 20 to 30 canvas tote bags. I carry them around when I am filming or not working. For designer bags, my favourite is the Balenciaga Motorcycle bag because it is very versatile.
