Despite having broken into show business by flaunting her 32E-cup assets, buxom Taiwanese starlet Yao Yao says being sexy for the camera is a challenge for her.

On her latest film role as a bar hostess in Taiwanese movie Escapee, the 23-year-old says: "It's a breakthrough for me. I used to think that crying scenes would be the toughest for me when it comes to acting. Then I realised it's even harder to act sexy.

"You have to be sexy with ease and I find that difficult," adds the performer, in her signature saccharine sweet voice.

She was in town on Tuesday to promote her upcoming performance at music festival Spring Wave in Singapore on June 7.
