Romance has the beautiful chance of being both conventional and unconventional. While most of us have met our partners through the usual means, a few have had the fortune of meeting their partners in ways most can only dream about.
Hong Kong-American actor, director and producer Daniel Wu (吴彦祖) can attest to that. The star recently shared the incident which sparked the meeting between him and his wife, former model Lisa Selesner.
On Sunday (12th December), Daniel posted an eye-catching photo on his Instagram. It was a photo of a younger him posing on a magazine cover. Aside from his good looks, it also showed off his hot bod, including a barely covered groin area which left little to the imagination.
According to Daniel, this was from an October 2000 City Magazine cover issue. “It made a lot of waves with this “nude” cover,” the 47-year-old actor admitted. However, he shared that he had actually been wearing a G-string for the shoot, they just airbrushed it out. “But this cover was especially significant because it was the first time my wife (Lisa) saw me,” he shared.
Apparently, Lisa had been coming off the Star Ferry in Hong Kong when she saw the magazine cover. “It stopped her dead in her tracks,” Daniel said. The two met in person a year later. Now, they have officially been together for 19 years with their beautiful daughter Raven. “This is proof that something can set off a chain of events that can change your life forever,” the actor said fondly.
Daniel married Lisa in 2010 when they were in South Africa. Two years after their marriage, Raven was born into the family. They are currently staying in Los Angeles while living out their dreams. Daniel has been working towards his goal of becoming a professional race car driver while Lisa has been heavily invested in horse riding (equestrianism) competitions.
Who would’ve known that Lisa would in fact meet the magazine model who stopped her in her tracks? And that 19 years later, they’d still be in love? The actor even spilled some deets about their sex life here.
