Andy Lau Reveals Secret to Eternal Youth

Hong Kong actor/singer Andy Lau (劉德華) recently revealed that the secret behind his youthful good looks is maintaining healthy eating habits.

A few days ago, a netizen put together a collage of 54-year-old Andy, starting from his debut until now – a span of more than 30 years. Many were stunned to see that although Andy did become more mature-looking over the years, his handsome face and tight skin did not seem to change at all.

While on the radio program Hit 99.7 <勁爆樂勢力>, Andy was asked by show host William Lam (林柏希) about how he preserves his youthful features, despite his busy work schedule. In response, Andy said that his secret to eternal youth is making sure he does not overeat. For instance, when he eats meat, he will only eat until he is 70 percent full.

However, Andy stressed that eating in general is still very important. Because he and his wife, Carol Chu (朱麗倩), are currently vegetarian, they always make sure to eat more rice. Occasionally, they will also choose to eat ten-grain rice in order to ensure that their diets are nutritionally balanced.

In addition, Andy reminded listeners not to eat too many sweets, since “eating too much sweet food will make you look old more easily.”

The birth of Andy’s daughter, Hanna Lau (劉向蕙), four years ago does not seem to have had too much of a physical toll on the actor’s features either. Nevertheless, Andy did have to change some of his lifestyle habits to accommodate his daughter. Although he previously liked to go to sleep late, he now goes to bed at 10 p.m. so that he can wake up by 8 a.m. and send Hanna to school.

      I love your Jang Hyuk icon pic ;0) but I don’t agree about Andy Lau. haha lol… I never thought of him as young looking for his age. Michael Miu is the only guy I feel still GOT IT out that generation.

    Andy is like fine wine… he looks better as he gets older.. at least that’s how I feel. He’s still so good looking. Just hope he don’t work too hard as he is looking mighty skinny these days.

    I wonder if their daughter Hanna is a vegetarian too?

      When getting to that age, it only takes a quick couple of years age rapidly. Just like everyone else Andy will show his age eventually.

    lol what a load…

    the secret to his eternal youth is…botox! and god-knows-what sort of medical procedures he also utilizes.

    maybe he doesn’t know but grains are a source of carbs/sugar as well. it’s true that eating less sugar leads to less degradation of skin collagen among other skin-rejuvenating elements, but i highly doubt it’s entirely due to diet. some i’m sure is related to his genes, his environment, his diet and his overall maintenance regime.

    me thinks he oversimplifies much about his “youth.”

      @coralie Lol! First thing came to my mind when I read the title: botox xD And then there’s plastic surgery where they can tighten/pulled back your skin and such. Agree that eating healthy definitely helps but it’s not the end all be all thing.

      maybe yes, maybe no. He still has lots of wrinkle when he smiles, if he use botox he wouldn’t even be able to have facial expression. HK actors aren’t well known for plastic surgeries. You can see Michael Miu face full of wrinkle as well but those guys kept their body fits. Don’t eat too much and avoid sweets. If you are healthy then you look healthy.

        @sammie1988 there’s also micro botox that isn’t as affecting as regular botox. HK actors do do plastic, just that the general populace are either unaware or don’t care. I wouldn’t be surprised if Michael Miu also has some sort of beauty regimen.

      @coralie your comment about rice is quite interesting. I also feel quite strange when stopping at his “rice” word. When talking “rice” ppl refer to common rice that’s popular for everyone, this kind of rice goes through processing like rubbing and whitening which make them to lose nutrients, eating too much this rice is not good for health. Here’s the secret: the kind of good rice is the one not going through much processing, no rubbing, no whitening, but this kind of rice is hard, needs more time to cook so it’s difficult to eat.Seems I’m a more honest person, hehehe.

        @cuckoo any carbs or starch will convert to base sugar, glucose in the blood. the effect may be stifled with other nutrients in whole grains or the elements in the grains, but the starch will still turn into sugar if not used up immediately. what this means is, the sugar content in any food you eat, can cause collagen degradation regardless of where it’s sourced or what it contains. i think the only exception is fiber, which is sort of a starch, but an indigestible one.

    i thought he doesn’t eat rice since he doesn’t eat carbs to maintain his physique. perhaps he eats complex carbs but avoids the simple ones like white rice? he does have good skin for his age.

    After Andy’s look matured, he resembles Liu Wai Hung more and more. I’ve noticed this long time ago. Every time, I look at him, I was reminded of Liu Wai Hung. They have the same kind of eyes and mouth.

    Compared to Anthony Wong, who is the same age as him (difference by 25 days only, if wikipedia info is correct), he does look young.

    Andy still look handsome for his age. He does not use botox. He can still smile with wrinkles.. Aaron Kwok is the one who can’t smile well. He look frozen when smiling. Though Andy may not be into botox, he has sheep cells injected into his face and body to maintain his looks.
