Hong Kong actor Charlie Cho, known for his supporting roles in multiple films from the 1980s and 1990s, recently said that he’s disappointed at the current appearance of former screen goddess Amy Yip.

During a press conference for his upcoming movie, Business Proposal, Cho spoke about his initial desire to collaborate with Yip on a comedy film. However, he was taken aback by her appearance upon meeting up with the 57-year-old after so many years.

“She looks the same from the neck down but completely different from the neck up. I’m so disappointed, but I still want to film with her,” the 73-year-old said.

Cho added that he had spoken with Yip on the phone about the comedy movie recently, and she sent a video of herself.

“I was really shocked when I saw (her). Why does she look so much like my niece?” he lamented.

Cho and Yip have shared the screen in films like My Neighbours Are Phantoms (1990) and Queen Of The Underworld (1991) and China Dolls (1992).

Yip is known for her roles in multiple Category III Hong Kong films. Yip is known for her roles in multiple Category III Hong Kong films.
