Angelababy is known for many things, but acting is not one of them. Since her first acting role in 2006, the 31-year-old has been labeled as a “terrible actress” and has been criticised for being someone "who can’t seem to improve even after countless opportunities”. Yikes.

Her performance in her latest drama, A Murderous Affair In Horizon Tower, however, has earned praise from an unlikely source: Zhang Ziyi.

Angelababy in A Murderous Affair In Horizon Tower


On September 1, Ziyi, 41, uploaded a Weibo post, which read: “Whatever doubts you had towards Angelababy’s acting should be cast aside. Her performance is sincere and natural (…) She deserves to be recognised for being so immersed in her role and for expressing it so well.”

Netizens responded to her post with incredulity, and wondered why Ziyi would praise Angelababy out of the blue. “How many times has she ended up as a trending topic because of her bad acting? Isn’t being able to act the basic requirement of an actor?” one such netizen wrote.

Whatever Zhang Ziyi's reasons were, netizens were unimpressed


Another added, “Is Zhang Ziyi trying to become as unlikeable as possible? She wasn’t like this in [talent show] I Am The Actor. She didn’t hold back criticism even in the front of actors who could act so much better than Angelababy.”

One comment, which read, “You’ve actually praised her acting. Have you been kidnapped?”, actually got a response from Ziyi, who told the netizen to “believe [their] own eyes”.

As for Angelababy, she responded to Ziyi’s praise by saying that she has “a lot to improve on”. Her reply incurred even more wrath from netizens, who told her to “go take acting classes if you have any shame”. No surprises then that one of the most-liked comments was this cheap shot: “Angelababy has been acting for more than 10 years. Is she bragging about how she’s still lacking in acting skills after all these years? I have no words.”

imagine living in a world where saying you liked someone's acting would make you unlikeable
