Andy Lau (刘德华) made headlines when he recently joined Douyin (the Chinese equivalent of TikTok) and garnered 45 million followers in just 2 days.
He overtook popular celebrities like Zhang Ziyi and singers Eason Chan and JJ Lin – proving that his superstardom hasn’t deemed at all.
During a Q&A livestream with his fans earlier this week, the Hong Kong superstar boomer opened up about his personal life. A netizen had probed him about not having any guests during his wedding to Malaysian former model Carol Chu in 2008.
“I was worried that I would leave out good friends from the banquet guest list,” said the 59-year-old actor-singer. “That would hurt the feelings of those whom I didn’t invite, so I decided to forgo the dinner and not have any guests.”
When asked about why he wasn’t following anyone on Douyin, Andy also gave a similar – commonsensical – explanation. He explained that he regards everyone as his friend. But in the event if he leaves out someone, a fellow celebrity might get offended. So the best way is just not follow anyone.
Just last December, many people were worried for Andy after it was reported that his 8-year-old daughter, Hanna, was admitted to a hospital while he was filming in China. More on that here.
