邂逅桂綸鎂

Gwei Lun-mei was born in the bustling city of Tai­wan in 1983. At the age of 17, her life took an un­ex­pected turn- she found her­self act­ing in a film called The Blue Gate Cross­ing (2002), where she im­me­di­ately made an im­pres­sion. She hasn’t looked back since, en­joy­ing a stel­lar act­ing ca­reer over the last 15 years, with no signs of slow­ing down in sight. 1983年出生於台灣的桂綸鎂,從小在台灣長大,當人生走過了17年,桂綸鎂漫步在台北西門町街頭的時候,可能從未想到過,在那夢一般的未來世界裡,她忽然像一顆落入夜空的明星,把燦爛渲染的更加精采。

While her beauty is the first thing we no­ticed about her, it is Gwei’s tal­ent and self-con­fi­dence bal­anced with just the right touch of hu­mil­ity that ra­di­ates through and each of her char­ac­ters is in­fused with these lovely in­ner qual­i­ties.

In a re­cent in­ter­view with Marieclaire, the in­ter­viewer com­pared her with the lead char­ac­ter in Vic­tor Mar­gueritte’s La Gar­conne (1922), the story of a tomboy who leaves her fam­ily so that she can con­tinue to live in free­dom. Grow­ing up with the tra­di­tional Tai­wanese ex­pec­ta­tions to be a ‘good girl who gains a good ed­u­ca­tion’ Gwei is very self­dis­ci­plined, yet she hasn’t let this dampen her ad­ven­tur­ous spirit. Rather, she has em­barked on a search for bal­ance.

She wrote a letter to her­self, say­ing, “Even though I do crazy things from time to time, I have learnt to con­trol my spon­tane­ity when called for. It’s not as ex­cit­ing, but I have dis­cov­ered a dif­fer­ent kind of free­dom, one that brings a rare sense of peace…i have learnt to love my­self more. Some­times I like to imag­ine my­self soar­ing like a bird in the sky.”

It has been said of Gwei that while in­se­cu­rity is very com­mon in ac­tresses, she is a rare ex­cep­tion, pos­sess­ing a very dar­ing soul, a love of trav­el­ling solo, and ab­so­lutely no fear. Per­haps it is her ex­tra­or­di­nary act­ing tal­ent that is the foun­da­tion for Gwei’s self­as­sur­ance. “When there are choices, I have free­dom. So how do I en­sure that there are al­ways choices avail­able to me? First I stand firm with self­con­fi­dence, that way I’m not afraid of los­ing any­thing. When­ever you have op­tions in life, al­ways choose the one that is clos­est to who you are.”

人生往往就是這樣,一次邂逅,或就改變了未來。與《藍色大門》副導的相遇,可以說開啟了桂綸鎂影視生涯的旅程。隨著影片的傳播,也把桂綸鎂清純中飽含成熟、甜美卻不失豪爽的形象,從多倫多到美國、巴西、荷蘭、意大利和日本,是的,她紅了!不單是美麗的外表,還有與生俱來詮釋劇情的張力,每時每刻都牽動著觀眾心底最柔軟的神經。

初見桂綸鎂,獨特的清靈氣質加上知性美,讓人有些望塵莫及,開始對話後,在美麗優雅的外表下,不嬌柔、不做作,健談豪爽中表現了極度的自信與極高的自我期許。Marie Claire雜誌對桂綸鎂的專訪中也曾描述到:她像 Vic­tor Mar­gueritte 1922年的小說《La Garçonne》中那位男孩氣的女孩,決定離開家庭,過一段自由自在的生活。或許因為從小接受的是臺灣傳統式「好學生、乖女孩」的教育。這樣的桂綸鎂,可以說有著乖女孩般那種極度自律的內心,卻磨滅不了小男孩心底那股渴望無拘無束的個性。

桂綸鎂曾在寫給自己的信中說道,「我雖然還偶爾瘋癲,卻不再抑遏不住自己的狂燥,雖然少去轟轟烈烈,但卻換來了更是難得的平凡。我有了另一種自在,也懂得了要多愛自己一點。」。外表上,桂綸鎂展現出的是那份破繭而出的美,而更吸引目光的卻是她那股發自內心的自獨立。她說,她常常幻想著自己在天空中自由地飛翔。

媒體曾評價說,「她不像一般女星缺乏安全感,可以玩的很瘋,獨自旅行,無所畏懼」。或許因為異於常人的表演天賦,桂綸鎂對自己非常自信,「有選擇的時候,我就是自由的,那怎麼樣有選擇?我覺得自己的中心要站得穩,你就不會害怕自己失去甚麼。當你有辦法從更多種選擇當中選一個,那個一定是更接近自己的。」

我有了另一種自在,也懂得了要多nd愛自己一點。現在的我和妳一樣,不知道未來自己會變成甚麼樣的人。我呢,其實沒有活的更好或是更壞,只是走的比較慢。桂綸鎂-寫給自己的信
