BEIJING, March 26 — Madame Tussauds Hong Kong unveiled actress Barbie Hsu’s wax figure on Wednesday. The look was adapted from her character in her new film, “Future X-Cops “, but Hsu said she wasn’t happy with the result. “I think the wax figure is too fat. I hope Madame Tussauds will do something to make the figure lose weight.”

Hsu said she was dieting when Madame Tussauds took her measurements and has since lost two kilograms. “I suggested they make my face slimmer when they measured it, because I would be on a diet. But they didn’t accept that and said they would follow the real measurements.”

Hsu stars as a time-traveling police officer who warps time to rescue her partner, played by Andy Lau, in “Future X-Cops”. The actress is known for her roles in “Connected” and “Hot Summer Days” as well as the TV drama “Meteor Garden”.
