Hong Kong former-actress Joey Wong said recent reports that claim she had injured her face in a car accident last year are "untrue", in a video clip she released on Friday.
HONG KONG: Hong Kong former-actress Joey Wong released a video clip Friday to address tabloid reports that claim she had injured her face in a car accident last year, reported Hong Kong media.
Hong Kong tabloids had cited photos in which Wong appeared to have distorted facial features and looked vastly different from the way she did in the past, as evidence to back their claims.
However, Wong insists that these tabloid reports are "untrue".
“I have been away from showbiz for over ten years. I don’t understand why these rumours, and not just rumours, but also grossly untrue things like photos, video clips, and articles … keep following me.
“I have left it to my lawyers to deal with it all,” said Wong, who had sued a number of Hong Kong publications earlier this month, for allegedly defaming her by suggesting that she had gone under the knife after injuring her face in a car accident.
“I want to tell everyone that I am healthy, and have no problems. My fans don’t need to worry.”
“I will continue to live a normal life. I feel that being normal and free is the happiest thing,” said the 46-year-old.
This is the first time in years that Wong, who currently lives in Canada, has stepped forward to formally address her fans and the public.
Wong shot to fame playing a beautiful female ghost in Hong Kong director Tsui Hark’s 1987 film “A Chinese Ghost Story”, and had gone on to appear in films like 1993’s “Green Snake” as well as “City Hunter”, alongside Jackie Chan.
She retired from showbiz after working on “Shanghai Story”, a 2004 Chinese movie about a wealthy Shanghai family that sees its fortunes change drastically in the wake of the Cultural Revolution.
