Michelle Chong's 'dirty' little secret

The secret is out. Local actress-director Michelle Chong does not like to shower.

The 36-year-old sheepishly admitted to her aversion to bathing at the press conference for her second film, 3 Peas In A Pod.

The film stars Alexander Lee Eusebio, Calvin Chen and newcomer Jae Liew.

Host Pornsak accidentally let the cat out of the bag when introducing the cast of the movie and asking what their weird habits are.

Said Pornsak: "Of course, the whole of Singapore knows Michelle Chong doesn't like to shower."

Chong was left red-faced, exclaiming: "Not everyone knows!"

She added: "I showered today because it's my big day. I washed my hair too, I seldom wash my hair."

What about Taiwanese actor Calvin Chen's weird habit?

"He's an exercise-holic," said co-star Alexander Lee Eusebio, revealing he would hear "strange noises" coming from his room at night.

Chen said he does some exercises in his own room because there was no gym where they were filming.

And what is Singaporean newbie actres Jae Liew's secret habit?

"She eats alot. Even before a kissing scene," Eusebio was quick to point out.

When asked who's the vainest among the three, former Fahrenheit boy-band member Chen was singled out.

"They think I'm vain because of my mirror (referring to his phone with a reflective surface)," said Chen, demonstrating how he would pose and preen in front of it.

"While I was editing the film, he did it during every take," Chong chimed in.

Defending himself, Chen said: "Sometimes I'm not checking my appearance. I'm looking at my acting expressions."
