In a rare interview yesterday, Hong Kong star Cecilia Cheung spoke for the first time about fellow celebrity Edison Chen, with whom she was involved in a sex photo scandal last year.
A Lianhe Wanbao story reported her calling Chen "despicable" and that he was "dishonest, unreliable and caused a lot of hurt to his fellow female celebrities."
The interview, which took place in Hong Kong yesterday evening (26 February), saw Cheung admit for the first time her involvement in the scandal.
Looking directly at the camera, a teary-eyed Cheung said, "I admit that I committed this mistake!"
The Wanbao report also said that Cheung cried a second time when she spoke about her husband, Hong Kong star Nicolas Tse. She thanked Tse for his forgiveness and him staying by her side during this difficult time.
"It is very difficult to find such a good husband." Cheung told the interviewer, before breaking down.
In February last year, a few hundred obscene photos of Edison Chen pictured in various sex acts with some four female celebrities were posted onto the Internet. Chen had since testified in a Canadian court confirming that Cheung was among the four women in the pictures.
Of course she's married with a child now so what else can she say? She can't just say that Edison is a nice guy and she supports him now can she?
But in the end it's her fault. Girls always have to be careful. I have to be careful who I see and what I'm doing. When I go out I have to watch for things like drugs and cameras. Especially now when there are camera phones and video phones!
Edison may be despicable, but she's the only lying there naked posing for pictures. It's not like these pictures were taken in secrecy and she was fooled.
And yes, those pictures still give some people nightmares :P
