文:玲子

这篇文章是为了林慧玲才想写的。因为她得奖时,我感受不到她的喜悦。她的反应让我想起了白薇秀。

2009年的红星大奖《小娘惹》势如破竹,各方看好欧萱首封视后,怎知当晚大爆冷,类似配角的白薇秀却赢了。时隔三年,白薇秀凭借让人印象不深刻的《乐在双城》再度爆冷封后。观众骂声不停,白薇秀随之而来的压力可想而之。去年白薇秀获颁“超级红星奖”前夕,在早报的专栏写了这么一句:“好像全新加坡都没有人为我开心,都觉得我不应该得奖。”

其实,白薇秀是会演戏的。我甚至觉得继李锦梅之后,白薇秀与瑞恩是8频道演得最出色的两人。但瑞恩两次封后均以大热之姿胜出,可谓众望所归。反观白薇秀两次封后的时机都不对,犹如揠苗助长。

现在的林慧玲也是如此。2015年的视后大热门是《逆潮》演反派的瑞恩。谁知她闹出“黑脸风波”,新传媒顺势把奖颁给亲生女林慧玲,玩个大爆冷,填补白薇秀结婚生子后留下的空缺。

这三年来,林慧玲成功取代白薇秀在新传媒的位置,成了新一代的广告新宠。今年,亲生女蔡琦慧看似天时地利人和,稳赢“最佳女主角”,谁知到嘴的肥肉又让林慧玲抢去。

或许是林慧玲比蔡琦慧年轻五岁,演艺事业的潜力更高。而且林慧玲的《第一主角》台庆剧,蔡琦慧的《最强岳母》是小制作,只是收视突围成功。

林慧玲虽是阿姐接班人,人气却远远不及欧萱和瑞恩,凡是有欧萱和瑞恩参与的人气奖项,林慧玲都是靠边站。可见就算拥有靠山也并不能改变民心。

今年我钟意的最佳女主角是陈莉萍,坊间热门则是蔡琦慧。想必林慧玲也心知肚明,所以她上台时多了一分不好意思,少了一分得奖者的喜悦。

电视台与其靠奖项来拉高自家艺人的身价,不如痛定思痛,创造更多更好的剧本与角色,让艺人能发挥所长,凭自己的能耐赢得青睐。届时,即便不是视帝视后,得民心者得天下。

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!
