In the movie Apolitical Romance, Taiwanese actor Chang Shu-hao is often seen getting bullied by a sassy girl from China, who is played by Beijing actress Huang Lu.

Fortunately for him, his Chinese co-star in real life is hardly as aggressive as the one portrayed onscreen.

Speaking to Life! over the telephone from Taipei, Chang says with a laugh: "Huang Lu is not as scary in real life. She is someone you can joke around with and, in many ways, is tomboyish. But when you get to know her, she is actually quite a sweet and gentle girl. We got along really well."

Their film, now showing in cinemas, has been getting positive reviews, mainly for the humorous script and sizzling chemistry between the two leads.
