• This sounds so unhealthy, for body and mind. I hope she stops. Eat normally, continue exercising moderately, avoid "magical" weight loss spa treatments. And hang out with family and friends who will re-enforce that she is already beautiful.
  • @jimmyszeto You're right that he may not have intended to offend her, but he did. Impact is more important than intent. I love subtle interactions and ad-libbing in acting, but he should have cleared it with her first. A simple, "Are you okay if I add in hugs or kisses on your cheek/forehead?" beforehand would have avoided this situation. Also, Tony is not at that level of acting where I believe he was so immersed that he lost himself. His actions were calculated. He just needed to let his partner know first. Especially since surprising her may have the opposite effect where she flinches or recoils. He was unprofessional but also learned a valuable lesson. Left alone, this could have escalated and really ruined his career.
  • @potatochip I agree but we also have to consider the side Tony too. it may have been full unintentional and accidental. Acting has progressed in the last couple of decades. Relationships are portrayed a lot more naturally because because of all this subtle interactions and less scripted between drama couple.
  • @xrc56 Dude, when you can't argue logic, you go with insults. In Hong Kong, marital rape is criminalize. A simple Google search finds that "Section 117(1B) of the Crimes Ordinance, introduced in 2002, states that 'unlawful sexual intercourse (非法性交、非法的性交) does not exclude sexual intercourse that a man has with his wife'" Even if it isn't illegal, it is still not right that a spouse can rape another. Sometimes the law has not caught up with morality. Back to this case, accepting to play a wife in a drama, does not give blanket consent to all forms of touching, no matter how slight it may seem to you. It does not have to escalate to the level of touching the breast, although unwanted kissing is not that far off. Her body is hers, if she says she does not want that type of touching, he needs to respect it. It does not matter if that type of touch is okay to you, or Tony or any other Tom, Duck and Harry or MarySue, it is her consent. And no, publicly cheating like Jacqueline is not the same as wanting your body respected. If a director does not want to hire someone because they expect their colleagues to respect their consent, then that speaks more to the morality of the director. This case does not mean she never wants to do kissing scenes or bed scenes, it just means she wants her acting partner to discuss them and respect her consent.
  • @jimmyszeto And that may have been wrong too. Just because no one publicly complained about Alex Man's actions, does not necessarily make them right. How long did it take for Bill Cosby to be known? Most survivors do not report. And besides, what happens with Alex Man has nothing to do with Rebecca's consent. Consent is individual and is not related to any other person or situation. All that matters is that she feels that her consent was violated. Repeatedly, in this case.
  • @potatochip Please stop showing your ignorance by putting marital rape into the situation. In most Asian countries, there is no such thing as marital rape. I did not say one kiss in one scene= all kiss for all scenes. But that is not sexual harassment because you definitely do not know what are the elements of sexual harassment. Tony hung's intention to kiss her is to create a realistic feeling between viewers and characters in a story as a husband and wife. The moment you accepted the drama to portray as someone’s wife, bodily contact is expectable. Unless it’s too over and severe like touching your breast or slapping ur butt. The judge will analyze whether it's appropriate or not under such circumstances in the field of filming even if you want to bring the case into the court. But rest assure no directors will find you for any projects anymore and you will end up the same fate as Jacqualine.
  • @potatochip How many did Alex Man aggressively kiss or beat up while filming? Not saying that it’s right and each case is different but sometimes it’s when getting immersed in the character rather than always the intentional indecent assault...
  • @xrc56 No, giving consent for one kiss in one scene does not give a blanket consent for all scenes. That's why a professional actor reviews each scene ahead of time and checks his partner's comfort level and how they would like to play it. It's the same reasoning with marital rape. Entering a contract of marriage does not equal a blanket consent of sex anytime a spouse wants.
  • @potatochip It depends on the actor and actress's relationship in the drama. They were acting as husband and wife. So the kissing scene is something logical and needed to create real feelings. Same like football bodily contact is expectable. The consent is within the contract signed by her. Ask her to show you the contract. And his intention is to create a real connection between viewers and characters in a story
  • @jimmyszeto I didn't say you were against women. I was asking about your negative usage of the word "feminist" and trying to have you clarify. Women are taught to not speak up. They are taught to forgive the cheating, abusive husband. They are taught to not make waves. That's why I say they are great at keeping the peace. Remember, all wars are started by men. It's a generalization, there are outliers, but that is the overall reality and culture. Unfortunately, women aren't believed when they come forward in cases like these. See Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby and Larry Nassar. They are discouraged even by law enforcement not to come forward. These aren't stories, they are real personal experiences that I have seen. It sounds like Rebecca did already make her feelings known to Tony. She even had a producer come in to keep him in check. But he continued to do whatever he wanted under the guise of being an actor. There is no point in going to the law with this. She has no proof. It's only her words against his, and 99% of the time, she isn't going to be believed. So she goes public. She has free speech. He has free speech. But she is definitely going to be risking her career more than harming his. She gave him a warning not to do it again. A strong public one since the private one did not help. Nothing is going to happen to him. They both know that. But she might have prevented him from doing this to another actress. The other victims of Harvey Weinstein probably wished someone did that too.
  • @potatochip If looking for equality then should not jump onto everything immediately assuming everyone is against women. Do you know how hard it is to even mention the word ‘female’ in a discussion when people jump all over you unfairly? In your case, you are also trying go further than just looking for equality and suggesting ‘ women are great at keeping the peace’. There is system for everything in society which is why bad people (male or female) should get charged and go to jail to face consequences. If Rebecca feels taken advantage of then she should file complaints or go to the press in a direct manner. She is obviously still on fine terms with Tony because they are attending functions together, there are still taking photos together to market as a couple for the drama. If Tony was intentional in his inappropriate acts then he should be punished, if not and forgiven then the issue should be passed. There shouldn’t be an inbetween when his career gets destroyed through rumours. Lets have fairness for both parties and not just one.....
  • @jimmyszeto You say "feminist" like it's some sort of insult. I think everyone should be a feminist. Everyone should want women to be treated equally as men. Everyone should want women to have their bodies and consent respected. Women are great at and expected to keep the peace. Being at the same function does not mean nothing happened. It just means she is doing her job.
  • @xrc56 No, this is not comparable to sports. In football, you are expected to get hurt. In acting, you are not required to do or have things done with your body without consent. How do you define consent?
  • @potatochip Invalid analogy. I forgot what is the law name, but you cannot be charged for the assault in sports like football or filming.
  • He has the worst style. You can be quirky. You can be bold. But this is downright ugly.
  • @anon Nah. Her greatest talent is being a well-adjusted adult despite living under the shadows of her famous but dysfunctional parents. Her love for her mom is admirable.
  • What a beautiful couple. Loved them both!
  • @potatochip yes, it's simply consent. @xrc56 as i said in my previous comment, I’m pretty sure Rebecca wouldnt complain if she was told beforehand. She said Tony did it without tellin her and that's not OK how do you know she wouldnt complain if it was andy raymond or matthew?
  • So insulting. Tvb treats its pillars like trash. Lau Kong has been in all their golden dramas and part of the reason for its successes.
  • @xrc56 Here is an analogy. What if Tony stole $1000 from her? If she gave Andy Lau or Raymond or Matthew $1000, does it make Tony taking $1000 from her okay? No. Consent. It's not that complicated.
