Hong Kong actress Joey Meng (万绮雯) is known for many things. Her undisputable beauty, her amazing acting skills, and her gorgeous legs. Joey, who was the runner-up in the 1989 Miss Asia pageant, also won the title for “Hong Kong’s Most Beautiful Legs” then.
Needless to say, the “My Date With A Vampire (我和僵尸有个约会)” actress was quite a catch. It was obviously understandable as to why legendary actor Donnie Yen (甄子丹) would fall head-over-heels for her. Unfortunately, it didn’t last.
Joey made her debut into the entertainment scene with her participation in the Miss Asia pageant. It got her name out and nabbed her several acting jobs after she signed with ATV. This included the famous film, “Fist of Fury (精武门)”. Joey met Donnie during the filming for that movie.
It was love at first sight for the actor. Although he had divorced his still-pregnant ex-wife only half a year ago, Donnie was determined to capture Joey’s heart. Unfortunately, Donnie’s pursuit brought unwanted ire for the actress, with some alleging she was a mistress.
Yet, the duo were determined to be together. During Donnie’s marriage proposal to Joey, the actress supposedly said that she would not marry unless it was to Donnie Yen. Regretfully, they broke apart four years after their marriage citing increasing arguments as the reason for their split.
The 51-year-old actress may have walked away from her relationship with Donnie, but not much else has changed. Joey is still as alluring as ever and has no qualms about showing off her stunning legs. Recently, she’s been reminiscing her iconic roles in previous shows and is frankly amazed that people are still enamoured by her characters.
