Throughout Hong Kong actress-singer Cecilia Cheung’s career, the 36-year-old has been embroiled in a number of controversies, ranging from getting fired from her movies, to falling out with her manager.
While she has always remained taciturn when it comes to the media, the actress-singer uncharacteristically struck back during an interview yesterday, when she was asked about her ex-husband, Hong Kong actor-singer Nicholas Tse.
When asked about the reports of her spitting at one of her hairstylists, Cecilia said, “The workers at the salon [that day] were actually part of the team that goes with me for overseas schedules, we’re all friends. We were just chatting normally that day, and yet the reports spun it negatively, it’s really unfair to my team.”
Similarly, when asked about being criticised for acting like a “nouveau riche” for buying a luxury car, the actress-singer rebutted, “I like cars, so it’s not unusual for me to be driving a good car. I‘m not too sure how the term ‘nouveau riche’ started to be used to describe me. I also don’t understand why is there so much attention placed on me, isn’t this too unfair?”
The actress-singer also shared that she was not worried that the bad publicity surrounding her will affect her sons, as they are “very obedient”.
During the interview, Cecilia was very composed and calm, however, when the subject turned to Nicholas Tse’s businesses, which are doing very well, the 36-year-old said, “Don’t talk to me about the father of my two children, whether that guy’s doing badly or well has nothing to do with me!”
She then exclaimed, “I hope that those who are against me, or wish for me to unhappy, can delete me from their minds, just like a computer. Wouldn’t that be good? I’m really very busy, [if the people who dislike me sees me], can you just pretend that you didn’t see me!”
Cecilia has raised Lucas and Quintus singlehandedly since her high-profile divorce with Hong Kong actor Nicholas Tse in 2011. The family of three also moved to Singapore for a period of time to allow Lucas and Quintus to grow up in a more conducive environment before moving back to Hong Kong last year.
