Posing For ‘Playboy’ A Psychological Challenge For Bai Ling

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Posing nude for Playboy wasn’t easy for Asian actress Bai Ling – in more ways than one.

Ling appears in the latest issue and says the photo shoot was a “psychological challenge” because she comes from “China – the most primitive, conservative country in the world” so she had to get over the idea of being “naked to the world.”

The photo shoot also presented another challenge: The photographer kept offering her sweets and she finally had to say, “I don’t think you want me eating all these desserts if I’m posing nude.”

She considers the spread an important opportunity, even though it may have cost her a role in the new Star Wars film. Although she’s disappointed her scenes have been cut from the theatrical version, she’s thrilled by the support she has gotten from fans.

But Ling isn’t letting her lack of “Force” keep her down. Her latest movie, The Beautiful Country, just opened in New York and Los Angeles.
