On the very first day of 72nd annual Cannes Film Festival, controversies started pouring in!
Chinese famous actress Shi Yanfei, who stars as a palace maid in the hit drama ‘Story Of Yanxi Palace’, slammed for overstaying her welcome at Cannes red carpet.
When an usher intervened to indicate to her that her moment in the spotlight was over, she was still reluctant to move along.
32 year old actress confessed that she was horrified over the reaction to her Cannes’ appearance, after initially feeling happy over what her team told her. They said her name was a trending topic, and her immediate thought was that people were celebrating her presence in a major movie festival.
According to portal ET today, Shi realizing her gaffe, quickly posted on Weibo to ask for understanding from netizens.”I believe every actor/actress who has the opportunity to walk the Cannes red carpet will be extremely nervous and excited; I am not immune to this,” she wrote.
Shi recalling her experience at Cannes, noted that there were many media people at the red carpet, creating a situation that was “extremely loud” and chaotic!
