Early life and career
Born in Xindian District, Taipei County (now New Taipei City), Shu Qi moved to Hong Kong at the age of 17. She eventually came under the management of Hong Kong film producer Manfred Wong, who signed her to several Hong Kong films such as Sex & Zen II (1996). Qi also appeared in the Chinese edition of Playboy magazine and was a soft-porn actress.
Shu Qi starred in Derek Yee's 1996 film, Viva Erotica, which was about the erotic film industry in Hong Kong, together with Karen Mok and Leslie Cheung. She received the Best Supporting Actress award for her performance in Viva Erotica at the 16th Hong Kong Film Awards in 1997. Since then, she has appeared in mainstream Hong Kong films such as Gorgeous (1998), Stanley Kwan's The Island Tales (1999) and Hou Hsiao-Hsien's critically acclaimed Millennium Mambo (2000).
In 2002, Shu Qi appeared in the French action film The Transporter and Corey Yuen's So Close. In 2004, she played the lead character in the Hong Kong horror film The Eye 2. In 2005, she won the Best Actress Award at the 2005 Golden Horse Awards for her three roles in Hou Hsiao-Hsien's Three Times.
Shu Qi was a member of the jury of the Berlin International Film Festival in 2008. In the same year, she starred in a romantic comedy film, If You Are the One, directed by Feng Xiaogang. The film grossed over ¥364 million (US$53.7 million) at the Chinese box office. In 2009, she was a member of the jury at the Cannes Film Festival.
Shu Qi has been representing Frederique Constant in Asia as a brand ambassador since 2008. In 2009, she, along with Frederique Constant and Paint-a-Smile Foundation, repainted the murals on the walls of the cardiology department at the Beijing Children's Hospital.
Shu Qi has also been Emporio Armani's Asian ambassador since its Fall/Winter 2010 collection.
