While many may know the name Angelababy, it’s no secret that the actress hasn’t always had the reputation of having the best reviews for her acting. Take her show My True Friend 我的真朋友 for example. The drama had a lot of potential from the get go – a star studded cast and two popular male leads making a name for themselves. Yet it wasn’t enough to entice audiences who were put off by Angelababy’s acting to give the drama a go. Others who did said her co-stars Deng Lunand Zhu Yilong were ultimately the show’s saving graces.
Quite frankly, in Angelababy’s shoes, hearing these kinds of comments is definitely a hard pill to swallow. Appearing in the second season of the travel show Adventures of Life奇遇人生, the actress talks candidly about the difficulties of being an artist whilst out biking in Canada. She said that to do well in the industry, there must be no shortcomings! When you do well, people will applaud you and say well done. But when they criticize you, well, that’s your own business to take care of. She also acknowledged that being a celebrity means being talked about endlessly based on stories about their personal lives. She feels that she didn’t do well in that aspect as people often remember her for being married to Huang Xiaoming.
In the face of her numerous critics, Angelababy is not a big advocate of “running away”. She’d rather stay and boldly face the censure – “I think escaping is merely temporary because you can’t keep running your entire life. So don’t. Just hold tight and stand tall.” That isn’t to say though that she won’t be trying to improve her game. She admits that when people ask her what she wants to do the most, she says she’d dearly love to have a good body of work she can be remembered for and not just for her personal life. “One of the hardest things about being an artiste is that whatever happens in your life big or small, there will always be talk and then things will be blown out of proportion. People will always be interested about the scandalous and outrageous things but rarely do they want to know the truth”.
Leaving a good legacy is indeed a noble cause, and it’s nice to see Angelababy aiming for a higher goal. Hopefully she will be able to translate this aspiration very well into her acting and to the scripts that come her way in the future. Good luck!
She just need to stop acting. So maybe she will be recognised as something else.
Currently, I do remember some of her works. And they are really no good. She has been paired with great lead actors but even they cannot make the drama better. Maybe she will get better one day.
Some people are just not meant for acting. And she falls in that category. She should focus on hosting, variety shows and modelling cause that’s where her strength lies in. She should leave acting behind, I do give people the benefit of doubt of improvement. Charmaine Sheh was a horrible horrible actress but she improved one drama at a time & now she is critically praised for her acting. Angelababy on the other hand.. with her filmography she hasn’t improved at all. She has a fun personality so she should stick with variety projects instead.
Ewwwwww… just keep dreaming girl…your acting is very sucks and you are so overrated..
Than she should stop acting. I tried so hard to like her as an actress but it s not working. I agree that she should do a reality show or hosting stuff
Love her spirit although i only watched general & i and it was good watch for the mainlead guy… He was great actor i didn't mind her she did o. K i hated the writing more…. I hope she do well in the future…. She is humble that she know her shortcomings not like other actress who are shamless & they really bad actress & they get casted for major drama while great talented young actresses waiting just for chance some of them have really evil vibes… I think amfelena has good vibes but i really think she doesn't choose a good drama… I hope she find her rythm soon
These articles made her sound so non-humble. It sounded like she divorce her husband because she "doesn't want to be known being his wife" and she "wants to be known for her work." That made her personality sounds unlikeable and even detestable. She doesn't understand that her acting was not even the problem. Her acting is so much the same like any actress out there. There are even worse ones than her too. Everybody online say they hate her acting (when it's not necessarily bad) because what they actually hate is "her" the person. They need to kick her out of acting because they hate her. They hate her personality, her face and her background. Meaning even if she can improve on her acting it is no use because acting was not even the true problem in the first place. The reason for her divorce this time made it worse.
Hold on what? She’s not divorced though..???
I am sorry for her, but as a viewer I feel cheated everytime she plays a major role not because she can act but just because she has a pretty face whereas other talented actress don't get a chance.
What are you on about? She is not divorced and many people like her personality and beauty which is why she is landing so many lead roles despite her poor acting skills. I for one like her in presenting but must agree acting falls short. I don’t think people hate on her as you imply. Her acting just doesn’t hit the mark.
I really liked her in the Love O2O movie. Perhaps she better should stick to movie where she plays a character she can get into and does have a director who doesn’t okay scenes who really lacking.
Otherwise I don’t understand why it is her that gets so much hate from audiences since there are few Drama A-listers who are as bad or even worse than her. Even her own husband isn’t someone I would put into the talented or hardworking area. The better ones you rather can find in the B-list but their Dramas doesn’t sell that well. As far I learned from Ming Dao incident acting isn’t was count at the end but your market price and in that way she does her job.
I feel like everyone's basically saying Angelababy is bad at acting. While I've only watched one of her dramas – that was aired four years ago – I don't really agree with that. Sure, her acting doesn't live up to big , explosive A-list stars like Yang Mi and such, but it's not actually poor. She could improve, though. I don't think she should give up her career as an actress altogether just because she is not amazing at what she does. This is just my opinion, but I think Dilraba could also improve. That does NOT mean I want her to leave the showbiz. See what I mean? They are both just OKAY. They're not actually bad. Otherwise they wouldn't be getting any roles in dramas or movies.
