Being sexy comes naturally for Hong Kong actress Irene Wan

With her va-va-voom figure and come-hither eyes, Hong Kong actress Irene Wan has landed many sexy roles in her career.

One could easily imagine her taking a seductive role in her new movie May We Chat, which portrays the seedy side of Hong Kong society with juvenile delinquents, drug abuse and prostitution.

But the 47-year-old bombshell is in a different phase of life now. She is all prim and proper as a mother of a troubled teen in the movie, leaving the steamy sex scenes to her younger co-stars, such as Kabby Hui and Rainky Wai.

Over the telephone in Hong Kong last week, she says: "I hope people won't focus on the revealing scenes or the nudity. I want to shoot good movies. I choose roles which are backed by good stories."
