Guys, start sending your resume now. Gillian Chung, post-Edison Chen, says she still believes in love (and men).
“Not every guy is bad (like Edison),” the stunningly beautiful Hong Kong star told Daily Chilli in an exclusive interview in Johor Baru, where she officiated at the launch for Jaz Beer, a made-in-Malaysia liquor brand that she’s currently endorsing. “I have never given up on love. And I’m not afraid to love again.”
For the record, the 28-year-old singer/actress was embroiled in a high-profile sex scandal with Edison, her co-star in the blockbuster hit, The Twins Effect, that almost destroyed her career last year.
Both actors, who were friends before they became part-time lovers (bad boy Edison already had a steady girlfriend when he had an affair with Gillian), have not been on talking terms since.
Well, he has issued a public apology and told that the press that he would still like to say hi to her. But she didn’t even want his name to be mentioned during this interview!
Nevertheless, judging from her cheerful disposition and mega-watt smile last night, Gillian has clearly moved on in her life. “I’m staying positive. My friends have advised me to stay positive even when I’m feeling down.”
Down is definitely not the word to describe her career at the moment.
With a new movie project, a new TV series and a new EP in the pipeline, Gillian is staging a strong comeback.
“I never really left the entertainment industry after my personal tragedy,” she explained. “What I did was just to take a long break. I did what I had wanted to do; I learned what I had wanted to learn and filled my time with a lot of charity work, which made me feel personally fulfilled.”
To all her haters, Gillian wants to say this out loud: “To hell with you.”
“I must admit that there are people who are doubtful of me. Some even give me the dirty look. But I don’t care what they think. I don’t expect everyone to like me or support me.”she said.
