HONG Kong Cantopop star Andy Lau (pic), 59, says he is an ordinary guy who cries, reported Kwong Wah Jit Poh.
Lau, who is celebrating his 40th year in showbiz this year, shared his journey as an artiste through video-sharing app Douyin.
Lau said he made his showbiz debut on an average day in 1981.
“I officially made my debut and the rest, as they say, is history,” he said.
Lau said although people address him as a global superstar and say he is handsome, he is still an ordinary person.
“Have you ever thought that I’m just an ordinary person?
“I will cry also. So what? It isn’t a crime for men to shed tears.
“Whatever you see on screen is the result of the hard work of an ordinary man named Andy Lau,” he said.
After being in showbiz for 40 years, Lau said he must celebrate the occasion.
“What I’m celebrating is the hard work I’ve put in for four decades,” he added.
