HK Top Ten Central:
(3/25/2009) Previously worked with Stephen Chow Sing Chi, both Manfred Wong (Man Jun) and Wong Jing recently criticized Sing Yeh’s personality and professionalism. Danny Lee Sau Yin who single-handedly gave Sing Yeh his start in film yesterday attended the Two Decades of Hong Kong Police Film forum and could not resist criticizing Sing Yeh, citing that one day he would fall and would no longer have any friend.
Yesterday at the forum were Lee Sau Yin, Gordon Chan Ka Seung,
Andrew Lau Wai Keung, Alan Mak Siu Fai, Felix Chong Man Keung and others.
Lee Sau Yin was asked about criticism of Sing Yeh. He said, “I knew about
that a long time ago! That’s why I don’t work with him. After signing
him, I haven’t worked with him for years.” Did he think that he found out
too late? He said that they had to be around each other to know, like in
a marriage. He believed that perhaps he had more and more pressure and
his ideas changed. Reporter claimed that Sing Yeh should listen to him
as his elder. Brother Sau said, “He is Sing Yeh, what does he have to be
afraid of? (As an elder don’t you think you should ask him to take a look
at himself?) So what if I am an elder, he doesn’t know me from a rat.”
Has he given up on Chow Sing Chi? He said, “A long time ago.” He
expressed that earlier he signed Shing Fui On and gave him his start,
everyone are still friends now and could meet for dinner except this “Sing
Yeh”. When asked what he was upset at Sing Yeh for, he said, “The grace
of friendship, when people ask him to meet and talk, behind the doors you
were thinking about something else. (Do you feel he is very calculating?)
He calculates too much.” Are they still friends now? Brother Sau said
that he had no enemy.
Brother Sau revealed that back then 14 mobsters came to him with
guns to look for Chow Sing Chi to make a movie, but he did not tell him
and only warned him to be careful in the streets. Did he protect Sing Yeh
that time? He said, “Many times! They are in the past so it’s just good
for a laugh. (Will you protect him this time?) What is there to protect?
Do I have to be so blatant?” he pointed out that back then after Sing Yeh
made FINAL JUSTICE (PIK LIK SIN FUNG) and won the Golden Horse award, he
demanded a salary increase. Over the years he has accepted so many offers
for him but he did not receive even a cup of tea. He said, “However, I
don’t even want one that badly.”
Has Sing Yeh called him? He said, “No, I don’t know if he still
knows me. I haven’t changed my number in such a long time. (Are you
disappointed?) No, this is human nature, he doesn’t owe me anything.”
Yet Brother Sau advised him to be honest, money was not omnipotent and
friends was more valuable. He expressed that after working on two movies
with Sing Yeh he no longer wanted to work with him again. He said, “I
covered him from 14 mobsters, I never even mentioned it to him to scare
him. I am very reasonable. Should I have told him, be careful of getting
chopped outside?” How much space did he feel Chow Sing Chi had to
survive? He said, “He is smart, he can hold his own; but for how long?
Nothing lasts forever. When he falls, I am not talking about fame or
fortune, he just won’t have any friend.”
Brother Sau also said that if they had the chance to run into each
other again, he still would greet him. Although he was not an enemy, he
was not a friend either. Would Chow Sing Chi take the initiative to greet
him? Brother Sau said, “He would, even if it’s just an act.” Would they
have a chance to work together again? He joked, “Maybe he would tell him
he would work for free and help me with this movie? You never know.”
In an interview yesterday, Chow said he was unfazed by the idle talk about him. When the reporter noted Chow’s tired look, he said it was due to working late on his new film and meeting with his screenwriter.

Daniel Wu willing to sacrifice privacy for movies
Daniel Wu seems to have plans for marriage already. The actor, who has been cohabiting with girlfriend Lisa S. for several years, faced constant pestering by the media about their wedding plans. Though their past responses have always been negative, Wu revealed otherwise recently in a TV interview with Taiwan media.
In Taiwan to promote new movie “Shinjuku Incident”, Wu revealed in the interview that he dreams of having a family of his own. When asked if he has plans for marriage and children, Wu said he does not have a definite schedule or time frame but will get married when he feels like it and has a child when he wants to, revealing wishes to have a family with Lisa S.
Last year, Wu was seen secretly meeting Taiwanese actress Kelly Lin and dating Shu Qi. However, he later appeared in public with Lisa S. on a high note, crushing rumors of their relationship crisis.
In the movie, Wu had a scene where he bared his buttocks to the public. When asked if he would be willing to bare it all like Tony Leung in “Lust Caution”, Wu said he would need to pick the script and the director; he laughed and added that he will be most willing if the director is Yee Tung-Shing.
