The realistic performance by both actor Tony Leung and co-star Wei Tang is so sexually explicit that some people have suggested it was really done in front of the set. Because of her explicit role in the movie all her media work was blacklisted in China by State Administration of Radio Film and Television. Ads starring Tang, including skin care commercials for cosmetics brand Pond's, which local media have linked to her sexually explicit and politically sensitive role in Lust Caution, were pulled of the air. She was also withdrawn from the new 2009 epic movie, "The Warrior and the Wolf"
