Bernice Liu and Leo Ku attended the ceremony for the Fourth Sina.com.hk Advertisement Awards, where they both received awards. Bernice won the award for 'My Favourite Network Advertising Goddess' award for her Nike ads and Leo continued his reign as 'My Favourite Network Advertising Stylish Male Award'.

Leo has shot many ads in his time and he says his favourite ads are for 'machines' [Cantonese: 'gei', sounds similar to Leo's Chinese Name], so no matter if it is air conditioning or washing machines, then he is happy to accept. However, there is one type of 'gei' advert that he will not accept and that is for 'muscle' because he is not a muscleman and his 'eyes' (ie his nipples) are not very attractive. As a result, then no matter how attractive the fee is, he will not be moved. Leo indicates he has just turned down a 'muscle' ad that was offered to him by the gym sponsors to his concert in September because he felt he was not 'qualified' to appear semi-naked. He admits that the fee was quite good, but he will not consider it because he would rather keep his body private.

When the reporters said that he would reveal his body when he went swimming or sunbathing, Leo pointed out that when he does these thing, then he will always wear a t-shirt because he is not confident enought. Asked further if he has some kind of disfigurement he is hiding, he laughs that his 'eyes' are very big and they have eyelashes, so he would rather uses his other eyes to see the world. Asked how much money he has lost by turning these ads down, he did not reply directly, just saying: "Because I have problems with my 'eyes', then I daren't accept these ads and the chances of taking them in the future are slim." So he does not have a six-pack either? Leo laughs that in his lifetime, there will never have a six-pack because he is not muscly at all, just a pair of very dusky eyes.

Bernice was very pleased at winning her award and she says that this is the first time she has received such a prestigious advertising contract that really showcased her dance talent. She feels that the ad really reflected her personality in that it was very natural and so she is thankful to her sponsors for their appreciation of her. As well as her interest in dance and sport, Bernice is also interested in Chinese Martial Arts and she would like to take lessons. Asked if she is worried this will make her look more built, she smiles: "Of course not, I feel the most important thing is to be happy." Asked if she will ask Moses Chan to join her, she says that she thinks Moses already knows Kung Fu. She says that he has been losing weight for his series recently and she feels as an artiste, then they often have to learn a new skill for a series. Asked if she will really take Kung Fu classes, she says she does not know yet but if she does take on a martial arts series, then she will need to learn it.

Haha Leo is so funny about his nipple. =P Referring them to eyes. Aww he doesn't have to accept advertisements that requires him to show the upper part of his body if he's not comfortable with it. His cute face can do other ads.

Bernice does deserve that award she has so much commercials and for some strange reason her facial look really fits beauty and slimming advertisements. In fact she works well with almost all types of commercials from food, clothing, and maybe even car commercials :lol?:

I never heard of nipples being called eyes. How strange! Anyway, congratulations to Leo and Bernice! I think Bernice is a good spokesmodel for almost any product.
