【看英文中國郵報學英文】臺灣導演李安新電影《雙子殺手》中領銜出演的美國演員威爾史密斯,在週一的記者會上說道台北讓他美夢成真。

Will Smith, the leading actor of acclaimed Taiwan director Ang Lee’s (李安) new film “Gemini Man,” said on Monday that visiting Taipei makes his dream come true.

原來史密斯六年前曾來過臺灣,當時他就透露跟李安導演合作是他的夢想,「沒想到那次來台北真的讓我美夢成真。」

Speaking at a press conference for the release of “Gemini Man” (雙子殺手) in Taipei, Smith unveiled that playing in a film directed by Lee was “his dream” — something he first said during his visit to Taiwan six years ago. He said: “I didn’t expect that the Taipei trip really made my dream come true!”

Showing his Chinese speaking skills to the audience, he added: “My Chinese is good now! Hello Taipei, it’s nice to be here” in Chinese. (Lin Po-nien)

監製傑瑞也到了現場,李安感動說道很感謝這兩位朋友來到自己的家鄉,並表示這種友情讓他感到很窩心。

In addition to Smith and Lee, film producer Jerry Bruckheimer attended the event. Lee said he was grateful to them for coming to his hometown, adding that this kind of friendship is heartwarming.

李安攜威爾史密斯與其他劇組成員在10月18日晚間抵達臺灣,史密斯與李安更在週日驚喜現身寧夏夜市大啖臺灣美食。

Smith and Lee arrived in Taiwan on Oct. 18. They visited the Ningxia night market (寧夏夜市) in Taipei on Sunday for a local-cuisine tour, which surprised many people.

記者會上史密斯也說了一些他與李安之間有趣的故事,比如說他第一次到李安的辦公室,發現李安將辦公室貼滿了他的照片,「就像是我的一個小博物館」史密斯笑道。事實上李安是為了研究史密斯的複製人,才把自己的辦公室弄得像史密斯實驗室。

Smith also unveiled some interesting stories about him and Lee at the press conference. For instance, Lee placed Smith’s photos all over his office in order to better research how the clone of Smith should look. “It’s like a museum of me!” Smith said.

《雙子殺手》故事敘述由威爾史密斯飾演的一名頂尖殺手亨利布洛根,被一位年輕殺手追殺,後來發現這位殺手是年輕的亨利自己,而且能事先預測亨利的一舉一動。 電影10月23日在臺灣各大戲院上映。

“Gemini Man” is about an assassin named Henry Brogan (played by Will Smith), who is chased by a young clone of himself that can predict his every move. The movie will be released in a theater near you on Oct.23.
