The two left separately after 30 minutes, following which Bosco visited a high-end supermarket to buy wine, gummy bears and ham before returning to the hotel where he is believed to have met up with Qi Wei again.

Hong Kong martial arts superstar Jackie Chan believes that his action days are numbered and would not be appearing in any more action titles.
According to Asian Bite, Chan said that he would be retiring from action movies after “Chinese Zodiac” because all the high kicks and vigorous tumbles have taken its toll on the 58-year-old, despite many who believe that he could still go on.
“It hurts, it really hurts. The shoulder, the ankle, it really hurts. You don’t know because I still look healthy,” he said while launching “Chinese Zodiac” at the Cannes.
Chan, who plays as a fortune-teller in “Chinese Zodiac”, added that the movie was a fulfillment of his most important film, after he had spent seven years writing, producing, directing and choreographing the fight scenes in the movie on his own.
“For the last ten years I’ve been choosing the director to direct me. This one I direct myself,” he said.
However instead of spending his quiet days gardening, cooking or bowling, Chan is not ready to step out of the limelight just yet, but is practicing his acting chops.
“When I look at Hollywood, at Robert De Niro, he can do anything – comedy, drama. Clint Eastwood who is 60-70 years old, he can still move. I said yes, that’s my goal.”
“Because action stars’ life is so short and an actor’s life is very long, I want to show audiences that I can act,” he said.

As one of the most popular performers in Asia, Cheung’s death shocked the Asian entertainment industry and Chinese community worldwide.The day after Leslie’s death, his family confirmed that Cheung suffered from (clinical) depression and had been seeing psychiatrists for treatment for almost a year. They also revealed that Cheung had attempted suicide in 2002. Later at his funeral, Cheung’s niece disclosed that her uncle had severe clinical depression and suffered much over the past year (2003).
Despite the risk of infection from SARS and the Who’s warning on travels to Hong Kong, tens of thousands attended Cheung’s memorial service, which was held for the public, on 7 April 2003, including celebrities and other fans, many from other parts of the world such as mainland China, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, Southeast Asia, the United States and Canada. Cheung’s funeral was on 8 April 2003. For almost one month, Cheung’s death dominated newspaper headlines in Hong Kong and his songs were constantly on the air.
Cheung’s last album Everything Follows the Wind (一切隨風) was released three months after his death.
Cheung’s suicide note (translation): “Depression! Many thanks to all my friends. Many thanks to Professor Felice Lieh-Mak (Cheung’s last psychiatrist, 麥列菲菲). This year has been so tough. I can’t stand it anymore. Many thanks to Mr. Tong. Many thanks to my family. Many thanks to Fei-Fei (Lydia Shum Din-ha). In my life I did nothing bad. Why does it have to be like this?”
Following the unveiling of Shu Qi’s scandalous past as a porn actress before her rise to fame, the media is determined to dig up more skeletons in the closet, and Hong Kong actor and martial artist extraordinaire, Donnie Yen, is the latest victim as an online post in several Chinese forums alleged that the star used to be in porn films, according to Daily Chilli.
Titled “Don Yen acted in porn film, surrounded by 10 naked women”, the post has aroused much discussion and debate among netizens. It was made in response to Shu Qi’s withdrawal from the Chinese microblogging site, Weibo, after her scandal.
The story goes that before his breakthrough role in “Ip Man”, Yen had appeared in several porn films during the 90’s in order to eke his way in the industry, and one of these films was “The Holy Virgin Versus The Evil Dead”.
“You think only Shu Qi acted in porn? Donnie didn’t? You are wrong! See you all complained that Shu Qi acted in this and that every day, you think Donnie only innocently shot kung fu movies?” wrote the user.
The user added, “I have seen three porn films of Donnie. He has four all together, three of which were horror movies.”
The user also posted a few clips of the film to prove the statements.
Needless to say, this latest controversy reached Yen’s ears, and he responded by posting two lines of lyrics from Sam Hui and the late Leslie Cheung’s song “Silence is Golden”, which was, “Let people laugh and scold as they like, be a carefree person.”
Yen is set to appear in “The Monkey King” next, which will be released in China on 7 July, but is currently undated in Malaysia and Singapore.
