HK Magazine’s memorable interview quotes over the years

  • “Hong Kong is like a hotel to most people, not a home. Everyone fled with their cash before 1997, came back again when Hong Kong looked fine and fled with their cash again when SARS broke out.” - Jackie Chan, martial arts star.
  • “I used to love Hong Kong. I had hopes for it, and that’s why I was constantly critical. Now I just hate it. I look at the younger generation, young couples hugging teddy bears in the street—what hope do we have?” - Anthony Wong, actor.
  • “One day when I was skateboarding, a fat man in short pants asked me if I wanted to be an actor. I refused. It was a time when a lot of ‘model scouts’ were trying to rip off wannabes. This guy looked worst than most. It was Fruit Chan.” - Sam Lee, actor.

The big gripe doing the rounds is that it does not live up to the promise of the title. That’s the grumble from hard-porn- hardened youngsters who paid the HK$100 ticket price to gaze at it on one of 73 screens in Hong Kong.

“Why would a porn flick show more piercing cries rather than moans of ecstasy? Why would a porn flick turn into a horror movie? Why would it contain head explosions, disembowelment and dismemberment? I watch porn because I want to see people having sex, not murdering each other.”

“Asking them to pay a hundred bucks was unfair to them,” he [Stephen Shiu] says. “I’ve just realized that.”

Andrew Lau - Guangzhou

A Beautiful Life played to a preview audience and the sad film left many audience members in tears. Already, Shu Qi’s performance has been anticipated for a Best Actress award next year according to Shu Qi’s former manager Manfred Wong. Lau said that because of her life experiences, Shu Qi was able to reveal the emotional truth in the film and depict the wandering and loneliness of her character. One scene in the alley required her to cry for 6 minutes. It has to be shot 3 times, so Shu Qi had to cry for 18 minutes. Lau revealed that Sun Honglei was originally planned for Liu Ye’s role but he was unavailable due to working on The Warring States. Liu Ye was selected because his personality was the closest to matching. Hu Jun was tender enough but too tall, Huang Xiaoming was deemed too small and like a brother. Anthony Wong was responsible for maintaining comedy in the film. The viewing press thought the ending too abrupt. (Sina)2

But marriage is a serious matter and must consider many things.  She said she often secretly came to Chengdu to stroll, eat and play. Asked whether she would make another film, Rosamund said she had no impulse at the moment so she’s taken a short break but had not quit. But if old boyfriend Andy Lau invited her, she would certainly consider it. (Xinhua)(Sina)
