Angelababy Stopped Depending On Family for Money Since She Was 15

The actress earned her own keep since she was around 15 or 16 years old.

Angelababy (楊穎) recently shared about her pay on her first job on a Chinese reality program, surprising co-star Kris Wu (吳亦凡) when she revealed she was only 15 years old at the time.

In a recent episode of FourTry <潮流合夥人>, Angelababy revealed that she earned $600 HKD for a shoot on her very first job as a magazine model. Not long after, she became a host for a Disney program in Hong Kong, for which she started earning a stable income of $4,000 RMB each month for a period of two years.

Kris Wu then asked curiously how old she was then, Angelababy replied, “Around 15 or 16,” which prompted a doubtful Kris to re-confirm her answer again. When she replied in the affirmative, Kris complimented her, “Then you are quite capable,” Angelababy then shared that she stopped receiving any allowance from her family since she started earning a stable income at that time, which earned the praise of numerous netizens.

  1. sorry to burst her bubbles but i only knew of a couple of girls with allowances while growing up. not having an allowance is just a way of life in a not so-well-off family. while her family didn’t give her allowance, they did provide shelter and food which is the highest expenses. it’s not like she was living on her own and had to pay her own rent, food and have to cook for herself. i don’t see anything impressive here.

    1. @m0m0 i totally agree with you. Being an immigrant family, i had to help for free in my parents shops since i was 8 the moment i came back from school. Didnt even know what allowance was. It wasnt until i went to high school that my mind got “sulled” by my white friends who get allowance for doing housework. After a long argument, I got paid 50 a month (had never get a raise because never won an argument against my asian parents).

      1. @dreamer Ive seen many examples of this growing up in the typical chinese takeaway scene too and its unfortunate foe the children of these families. It doesnt sound like they paid you anywhere enough.

      2. @megamiaow actually, it isnt that bad. I saw it as volunteer work lol. As for the pay, it was low. Everytime i brought this up, my parents would say who is paying for the house and household things blablabla. Couldnt argue with that. However, I’m thankful that I still get to stay at home at 26 cause im finishing my college and dont have work now and my parents also stopped with their shop. My parents didnt ask a penny from me for rent etc.

      3. @dreamer
        I can totally relate as I did everything in terms of housework for my parents and got pretty much nothing. There is no such thing as allowance in my family. My brothers all took on part time jobs while attending schoolto help out my parents which is more impressive instead of what Angelababy is doing but yet she has the nerve to brag about it. How sad…

    2. @m0m0
      I agree and Angelababy is so BS and is nothing impressive at all. I bet she just pocketed all of her money and you truly wonder if she even helped out her family? She makes it seem like she is the main breadwinner and is supporting her family. How pathetic that she brags about the smallest things.

  2. Good for her that she was financially sufficient at such a young age. However how long can she depend on her.. fame? I mean not to be mean but what’s her talent?

    1. @funnlim
      it’s not about her talents but her looks. As long as she could stay pretty, she’s get jobs. i think she’s got about 5-6 years max.

      1. @m0m0
        I do not think her looks are impressive either. She has a plastic face that is fake and needs a lot of maintenance. Let’s see how much longer she can last without any real talent.

  3. Uhhh, not getting allowance from your parents is deemed capable? lol I guess she lives in a different world than the rest of us.

  4. Maybe in their friends circle (rich ppl) it’s normal to receive money from parents. I don’t think the point is her not taking an allowance from her parents per se, but that she is a go-getter and can depend on herself to some extent.

    I belong in the same camp as those who have been working as soon as we mastered hand-eye coordination lol but I don’t share or understand the hostility being directed towards AB. Perhaps, what we’re all really saying is: “good for AB, but i’m better than/worked harder than AB.” Okay, good for you. Tbh, how I’d love to have lived a life where I didn’t have to work for everything!! Which, it seems, is what AB’s life could’ve been. I’m jealous!
