As a celebrity, you’ll never know how fans will react to you. While you often hope for a respectful interaction, you have to be prepared for anything.
Hong Kong actress Cecilia Cheung (張栢芝) was taken aback when a fan kissed her but she recovered quickly.
Cecilia Cheung has always been popular since her debut in acting. Her popularity in China grew even more after she participated in the variety show “Sister Riding the Wind and Waves 2 (乘风破浪的姐姐)”. When she attended an event in Zhengzhou, in the Henan province, her presence attracted a large number of fans.
The formal event took place on 16th May in a fashion store. The organiser of the event arranged for at least fifty security personnel to be present. They hoped to maintain order and ensure the event was safe to be attended. It was clearly necessary as fans crowded the store. Many were shouting things to Cheung like “Love you, Cecilia,” and “Cecilia, you are so beautiful.”
However, even the fifty guards couldn’t predict a female fan kissing Cheung during a photo shoot. The quick kiss on her cheek startled her, but she recovered quickly and smiled brightly at the camera. It was also a testament to her professionalism that Cheung remained warm and friendly to her fans throughout the event.
Fans were delighted with Cheung as immediately after the event, pictures of her begin circulating on Weibo. Netizens commented on her ever-youthful appearance. One said, “It hasn’t changed (from) 20 years ago (until) now.” Another exclaimed, “(She’s) 40 years old, but still looks beautiful!”
Well, aside from her beauty, Cheung’s ability to remain professional is definitely praiseworthy. However, we do hope that next time, fans will be more respectful of her boundaries.
