VETERAN Hong Kong actor Tony Leung is said to have regretted filming the sex scene in the 2007 espionage film Lust, Caution, reported China Press.
According to Hong Kong entertainment columnist Bai Lumei, Leung had originally declined to film the scene as it was not in the script he received.
However, he gave in to the director Ang Lee’s request after being reassured that the scene would not make the audience uncomfortable.
When the movie premiered on the big screen, Leung, who was watching the film for the first time, was said to have felt betrayed as it contained sex scenes with full frontal nudity.
The columnist claimed that Leung, who was upset, had requested Ang to remove the scenes after the film premiered but to no avail.
Set during the Second Sino-Japanese War, Lust, Caution tells the story of a group of Chinese university students who plot to assassinate a high-ranking special agent working for the Imperial Japanese Army.
Leung played Mr Yee, the main antagonist of the film.
