Shahkrit in tears over My Ex publicity
In the upcoming horror-romance My Ex (Fan Kao, แฟนเก่า), star Shahkrit Yamnarm portrays a womanizing actor named Ken whose ruthless disregard for one woman's feelings causes him to have a vengeful ghost making his life hell.
But for Shahkrit, publicity for the film by RS Film's Avant production company has been an ordeal. He and his mother called a press conference yesterday to state once and for all that he's not like the Casanova actor portrayed in the film. Also, he's upset with rumors that he'd groped co-star actress "Bowie" Attama Chiwanitchapan in a love scene or had become aroused at the sight of "Gybzy" Wanida Termthanaporn in a bikini during filming of a beach romp for the movie.
Shahkrit was in tears by the end of the press conference.
A veteran film and television actor, whose roles include playing the sidekick to Nicolas Cage in Hollywood's Bangkok Dangerous remake and as a gay playwright in A Moment in June, says he might leave show business and go to live anonymously in the U.S.
Bangkok of the Mind and Lyn's Lakorns have more on Shahkrit's saga.
Directed by Piyapan Choopetch and also starring "Aom" Navadee Mokkhavesa, My Ex opens in Thai cinemas on Thursday. Great PR for the movie, eh?
Update: Dirtii Laundry has RS Film's side of the story.
