During this time, the usually lively anti-fans had all become silent like cicadas in winter, no longer jumping around all over the place at all.
Of course, people didn’t just form hatred for no reason. These sorts of anti-fans were usually just fans of other stars.
In their eyes, this new upcoming star was blocking the rise of their own favorite star.
That being the case, could they not feel sour! ! ?
With this result, although they no longer dared to post slander against Ruan Tian, they still couldn’t help but mock and ridicule her fans where they could.
Thus, even after Ruan Tian won her case, a certain die-hard group of anti-fans were still stirring things up:
【Heh, you all call her Sister Ruan and then really think of yourselves as her sisters. But you should know you’re all just following a little starlet who made a little splash and then immediately disappeared to scratch her feet for three months. 】
1L: OP, you will soon receive a lawyer letter.
2L: How can you look down on our Sister Ruan? People are already saying that she will be the lead role in an upcoming film, and the Movie Queen spot is all but reserved for her. Why are you still not quickly kneeling down to the Movie Queen?
3L: Hahaha, it’s really true that she has been scratching her feet for three months. There has been no news from her, no posts on Weibo, and no itinerary from her manager. I almost thought that she had quit the circle entirely.
4L: What ‘quit the circle’? No need to be so polite, she has obviously been banned from the industry.
5L: Be careful of any upsets. Don’t let her really win the Movie Queen! ! !
In fact, news of Director Cheng’s new movie starring Ruan Tian and that unknown newcomer had been kept tightly under wraps all the way from the official start of filming until Director Cheng called cut for the last time, so it was still secret until now.
Right now the news was still quite tightly covered, probably because there had been no huge stars on the cast for the paparazzi to chase, so no one had dug too deeply.
Moreover, filming had all taken place in some run-down parts of the older sections of the city, which made it even harder for any outsiders to notice what was going on.
It was only once the film had gone though editing and was nearly ready for release that it was finally officially announced on Weibo. Along with the official announcement, there was also an announcement of the cast of stars who would be in the film.
And Ruan Tian’s name was indisputably at the very top of the list.
At first glance, the announcement seemed to be for a very ordinary movie, but as people began to take a closer look they all saw that the director was Cheng Sui’an!
Everyone: ? ? ?
There weren’t many big female stars who had broken through to the film industry in the current era, counting by fingers, the number should only be around three. However, two of those three had already bombed in the industry and won themselves notoriety as “Box office poison” and “Big screen killers”. Ever since then, those two stars had all but publicly declared that they would have nothing to do with the film industry ever again.
The film industry was famous for excluding outsiders and only working with known quantities but now Ruan Tian, who had only just become popular, had unexpectedly eaten such a huge piece of the film industry’s cake!
When the fans of other stars saw this news they felt sour, just too sour.
Why wasn’t it their favorite stars’ turn to receive such a good thing! ?
But after looking further, they saw that the movie was called ‘Motes of Dust’. Looking at the name, it seemed to be some sort of artsy movie that was probably destined to flop. Adding to that perception, even the lead actor was an unknown newcomer.
The subject matter didn’t seem like the kind of thing that could go very far at the box office.
After thinking that far, the angry fans of other stars all calmed down and didn’t feel so bad anymore.
Now they were just eager to see this movie come out in theaters so that they could firmly slap the “Box Office Poison” label on Ruan Tian’s head.
After all, whoever played the leading role was the one responsible for carrying the box office! If Ruan Tian couldn’t bear that weight, then she could just wait to be scolded by them!
And besides, what did she have to depend on to carry a box office? Just her little group of fans who only knew how to scream?
It had been shown time and time again that having fans in the TV industry just didn’t cut it when it came to carrying the box office for a film.
However, according to the official announcement, the film was scheduled for October, so it was still too early to think about it too much now.
Meanwhile, now that Ruan Tian had finished shooting Director Cheng’s film, she didn’t just sit idle. More and more scripts were handed to her, but most of them were basically similar to the idol dramas she had starred in before.
However, one script in particular stood out from the crowd, like a sultry woman winking at her from across the room.
It was a script for a comedy.
Ruan Tian laughed many times while reading through it for the first time. Once she finished, she was still smiling. This script was very interesting!
She picked up her phone and tried to call the person who delivered the script so she could express her interest.
But, unexpectedly, the other party’s number had run out of minutes and couldn’t be called! ! !
Ruan Tian patiently credited 100 yuan to the other party’s phone so that they could receive calls. With great difficulty, she finally managed to get through to that person’s phone.
Once they picked up, Ruan Tian immediately came straight to the point: “Hello, I read your script and, in fact, I would like to…”
The other party interrupted her rudely, “You damn liar, don’t talk nonsense with me. If you call me again I’ll call the police.”
Ruan Tian: ? ? ?
