NAUGHTY OR NICE: Celebs spill the beans on their co-stars

Sure, Santa Claus may know if local celebrities have been naughty or nice this year, but isn’t it a lot more fun to hear about their deeds – both friendly and fiendish – from other stars? We got artistes to pick names out of a box and tell us how the person has been bad and good in 2016, as they have observed.

Read through, and decide if they deserve a coal or a cool gift in their stocking on Christmas morning.

Andie Chen (as told by Jesseca Liu)

How he has been naughty
“One time, he texted me, ‘Jesseca, I think you got fined’ and sent me a picture of my car with a parking ticket. I was so scared and rushed over to my car, and sure enough, there was a ticket there. But when I looked closer I realised that it was a receipt disguised as a parking ticket. What a terrible prank!”

How he has been nice
“Actually, he’s a great person. When I was filming charity programme Hearts and Hugs, he came to support me and bought $200 worth of items (from the charity bazaar). As a father with a young family to support, that was very generous of him.”

How he has been naughty
“Bryan Wong has never been nice. He’s always very naughty, so I hope that next year, he will become a nicer guy. (laughs) No lah, I’m happy to know Bryan better this year. I was shifting house and I bought two sofa sets from him, but he didn’t give me a very big discount, so that’s why I’m saying bad things about him. (laughs)”

How he has been nice
“I’m glad to have known him better as a friend. Previously we were only colleagues, but now I would say that he’s a friend.”

Chen Hanwei (as told by Shaun Chen)

How he has been naughty
“He can be a bit long-winded. (Laughs) He also has a very anxious side, for example, if we have planned a dinner gathering next week, he’ll already start asking all kinds of questions today, like have we decided where we’re eating, what we’re going to do, who we’ve invited, if they can make it and if we’ve made all the necessary arrangements. But it’s also kind of cute.”

How he has been nice
“The times he has been good to me far outweigh the bad. He’s like a big brother to me – whenever I’m not happy, he’ll ask if I’m okay and I’ll share my problems with him. I also admire his filial side; he’s someone who loves his mother very much.”

How he has been naughty

“He’s always very naughty. He always laughs at me, makes fun of me, and compares me to other girls who have better bodies, such as Hong Ling. But my figure is not bad either, right?”

How he has been nice
“During the Pokémon GO craze, he bought me a portable phone charger that’s shaped like a Poké Ball. (Did it make up for all the times he teased you?) Uhhh, not bad lah. (laughs) Dennis, please stop making fun of me!”

How he has been naughty
“I was at a manicure parlour and I saw one of his old dramas being played on the TV, so I took a Snapchat and sent it to him. He replied to me, ‘Eh, you think very cute is it’. Okay…”

How he has been nice
“He often gave me a lot of guidance and tips on how to improve my acting on the set of Hero. In fact, before filming even began, he texted me to tell me, ‘Hey, if you have any questions, just let me know and I will do my best to help you’. That was very helpful of him.”

How she has been naughty
“She’s always so pretty. Did you see her at the press conference for Hero today? She’s stunning. I don’t like! Naughty!”

How she has been nice
“When we bumped into each other in Bangkok she treated me to a meal. Yay!”

How he has been naughty
“He used to try smoking behind my back when we were young, and even when I threw his cigarettes away, he would go and buy a new pack! Look at him now, he still smokes so much. I’ve asked him to quit but he insists that he can’t. Aiyah, just let his children tell him off. It works! When they asked him to stop smoking, he actually started to smoke less, so we hope he will completely cut it out one day.

Paige Chua (as told by Andie Chen)

How she has been naughty
“I can’t think of a moment where she hasn’t been nice, you know! It’s scary. I’ve never even heard her say a vulgarity – never, ever, ever, it’s impossible. I think she puts Santa to shame.”

How she has been nice
“She’s always nice. I think everybody knows that by now. We call her “the goddess” for a reason. She’s always punctual, always polite, always serious about her work, and I’m lucky enough to have had long conversations with her because they’re always interesting and I learn a lot. She’s a gem in the industry for her ethics alone.”

How she has been naughty
“When she’s had a bit too much red wine, she talks very loudly. (Laughs)”

How she has been nice
“She’s like a mother to me, very funny and very nice. Sometimes she will nag at me, and then suddenly turn around and gently encourage me to do well at work. I’m very touched whenever she’s serious. This year, I ran into problems while filming and she really comforted me.”

How he has been naughty
“(He’s naughty) all the time. (laughs) He can be quite a funny guy, but when he says something lame I’ll just be like, ‘Oh, whatever’. But it’s enjoyable to have him around.”

How he has been nice
“He’s very professional. There was once we were filming a scene where I had to seduce him and I got a bit uncomfortable at one point, but he was very patient about it. That was very nice and gentlemanly of him.”

How she has been naughty
“She only treats me badly when we’re filming 118 Season 2. In the show, her character can lash out at me and hit me anytime, so sometimes I wonder if she holds it all in when we’re not filming, but takes out all her anger on me when the camera is rolling. If you have the chance, please ask her this for me.”

How she has been nice
“She’s like a little sister who takes good care of me. Whenever I run into problems, she will do her best to help me. I always turn to her when I’m having trouble with technology, or for fashion advice.”
