Anita Yuen Learns to Say Sorry for Her Son

To be a good role model for her son, Anita Yuen (袁詠儀) said she has learned how to humbly acknowledge her mistakes. “I’ve learned how to say sorry for my son. He will see it, and learn it, and he will know what it means to be responsible.”

When the competition for the TVB Best Actor was still running rife last year, Anita and Chilam Cheung (張智霖) made a bet that if he lost the award, he would have to buy her a diamond bracelet worth $500,000 HKD. After Chilam lost the race and Anita flaunted her bracelet to her fans on Weibo, many netizens left negative comments on her blog, criticizing her sarcasm. Chilam’s controversial speech after he received his popularity award also angered many netizens, who claimed Chilam was being disrespectful to the awards ceremony and the other winners.

Anita heatedly defended Chilam on her Weibo, only to get more netizens to flood her blog with further negative remarks. Anita continues to defend her husband, saying, “He doesn’t really know how to make snarky comments, something that I may be better at doing. I had asked him why he said those words, and he told me that he was just speaking what he was thinking at the time. I believe him. What he said was pretty realistic.”

In regards to the netizens criticizing Anita and Chilam for their big egos, Anita said, “Everyone has the freedom of speech, but if you talk about my family, then I will definitely mind. If you are here to cause trouble, I will play along!”

Anita admitted that she knew the Best Actor award would not easily land in Chilam’s hands. She explained, “If [TVB] wanted to give the award [to outsiders], they wouldn’t have given it to Chilam Cheung, but to Francis Ng (吳鎮宇). He didn’t believe me so I had to explain it to him – compared to his screen time, relationship with TVB, the company’s administration and how they operate, [TVB] wouldn’t give the award to someone [like Chilam]. He believed me but he still wanted to bet with me. He fell into my trick.”

Defending Chilam from snide comments, Anita’s defensive nature was also apparent when she actively protected her good friend Christine Ng (伍詠薇), who was on the brink of depression when her drama, Beauty at War <金枝慾孽貳>, performed below expectations in viewership ratings last year. “She suddenly really cared about how others think of her, and she forgot what it means to find joy in acting. I really don’t want my friend to go into a dead end, so I put a damper on her hopes of winning…. I reminded her that if she did well, the audience would know it, not the awards.”

Anita is very well aware that her mouth tends to speak before her brain thinks, and she emphasized this more than once in various interviews in the past. Is Anita not afraid of upsetting others? “I shouldn’t say that I’m afraid, but I really don’t want to upset people. I’m working on it now. But I’m improving. I’ve learned how to say sorry.”

Anita said that it was her son that made her change for the better. “I want him to know what it means to take responsibility for your actions.”

Anita Wants Another Child

Triumph in the Skies 2 <衝上雲霄II> pushed Chilam back into high demand, and Anita is grateful for Chilam’s success. Anita is satisfied with Chilam’s new management company. Anita, who would occasionally appear in films and dramas herself, said, “I’m not being lazy, but I have to take care of our son. If I leave a few months, it really affects him. He once told me that his classmates’ mothers all came to their lunch, but not his own mother. That hurts.”

The couple currently have one 7-year-old son, Morton. Anita confessed that she would like to have another child, but she and Chilam have failed to reach a compromise. “He wants to watch his son grow, and if we have another, he might not be able to do that.”

    Anita doesn’t age well, she was so pretty back then. Now she look older than Chilam . This is why you don’t marry younger guy ( cough cough Tavia) if you do, you have to take good care of your self

      Anita and Chilam are the same age. But yea, she did not age well. However, she did not age too badly since I have seen worse.

      Anita suffers from thyroid problems, so her appearances suffers from it. But guess what, no matter what Anita looks like Chilam still loves her and stands by her.

        Oh really? I did not know that Anita has thyroid problems. If that is the case, then I can understand why. There is more to a person rather than just looks anyways. I am sure Anita has many great traits that are attractive to Julian which is why they are still happily married even after all these years.

        Everyone who grows fat claims they have thyroid problem. Suddenly this disease becomes a celebrity disease LOL.

        First it was Man Chi Leong, then Jet Li, then Christina Kuo and now Anita yuen. Who else, sure more to come.

        Anonymity, idiots like yourself should learn how to use the Internet. Spend 5 minutes of your pathetic life and learn what physical problems the thyroid glands can cause.

        @anonymity: Go do your homework before you speak garbage. Anita has had thyroid issues for many years, so she’s not using that ‘as an excuse for being fat’ now all of a sudden. Chilam even talked about his wife’s condition back in 2011 during his first concert at the HK Coliseum — that’s how most people found out about it.

        It’s actually very common to have thyroid gland issues — tons of ordinary people suffer from it, not just celebrities, so obviously you don’t know what you’re talking about. I suggest you go do some research on the topic before commenting like Nyn suggested so you don’t make yourself look like a fool.

      She is without makeup in tat pic and still not too bad. There are more things in a marriage than just the look.

      She’s playing mom role so her outward appearance marks her as private property – it wouldn’t do if candid shots of her running soccer mom errands were Yes! card caliber.

      She’s just not dolled up. Saw her dolled up on “Telling Maria” and Anita Yuen can seriously give many pageant winners a run for their money.

    I’m sorry for saying this but… Anita should really dress herself up a little more given that she’s a beauty pageant representative, an professional award-winning actress, and the wife of the IT man, Chilam. Yes I understand she’s married now and she has a kid and she’s just being herself… but she’s a celebrity! And we know people these days are gonna want to check out who is this lucky person that is married to the IT man Captain Koo. And if she keeps posting pictures of her not-so-impressive face, people are gonna be like WTF.

    Sorry I know this sounds harsh and what not, but I think I’m being realistic on how this society actually works.

      God forbid a married woman for dressing casually when she’s spending time with her husband and child! Where’s her 20 carat necklace, Givenchy gown and 2 inch worth of makeup?! She should be dressed up like that in her sleep!

      You aren’t harsh just shallow. Huge difference.

    • HeTieShou replied:

      Sorry but one of the traits that I admire about Anita is that she is more laid back in terms of dressing up and her appearance just like Tony Leung Chiu Wai. When they are not going to special events or anything,they dress very casually instead of feeling that they need to always dress up. Who said that celebs always had to dress up?

      I think there’s probably a higher chance of people being like WTF at the superficiality of your comment. If Anita is attending a formal ceremony or taking part in a promotional event for work, then yes, there is a necessity to dress up for the occasion.
      However, she should not have to dress up when she’s not at work, and this has nothing to do with whether or not she is married, has a child, or just being herself.
      Asking her to dress up in her own free time because she’s ‘a beauty pageant rep., a professional award-winning actress, and the wife of (so-called) IT man, Chilam,’ is like asking a police officer to wear a uniform when s/he’s off duty and eating dinner with family, or a business person to wear his/her suit when s/he’s off work and walking the dog, or a nurse to wear scrubs when s/he’s buying groceries at the supermarket, or a baseball player to wear his uniform when he’s grabbing coffee with a friend, or Angelina Jolie to wear a Gucci evening gown when she’s filming and spending time with her family.
      What you have suggested is mainly idiotic, but it’s certainly NOT realistic and NOT how society actually works.

        @Mt: Very well-said.

        @Jestinalee: Did you watch Anita’s interview on Telling Maria 2? She dressed up for that and she looked awesome. Same with the other public events that she attended throughout last year, both with and without Chilam — she still looked great with the light makeup and dressed up but not over-the-top attire.

        Therefore, your comments are unjustified because it’s obvious that Anita DOES do her job as a ‘celebrity’ when she needs to (i.e. formal public events and such) — when she’s off work or vacationing with her family, she has the right to dress however she wants. Besides, Anita has never been the type who likes to go all out with the makeup or attire like other celebrities and instead prefers a more natural look — I don’t see anything wrong with that at all. In fact, I respect her for that.

      Looks doesn’t last forever.
      Props to Anita who is confident enough in her own skin to show herself without make up on public photos, without succumbing to the pressure of the realistic nature of society. More than I can say for some people here, and myself included.

        Public figure is still human. Why does she have to dress up luxuriously, wear makeup and else at home? It isn’t a reality show to watch.

        I wonder if you wears party dress (if you are a she) or suit (if you are a he) at home.

      I dunno… my wife doesn’t wear makeup at all… never has. Doesn’t need it. She’s a natural beauty. She dresses casually and look greats doing it.

      Beauty is in the eye of the beholder… and really, all that matters is how Chilam views her.

      She’s in the wrong body with that boyish face. She said “I’m not being lazy, but I have to take care of our son”. She is lazy because it doesn’t take long to make herself look nice. Do it for your husband if you rather not do it for yourself. From the photo it looks like she got out of bed a lone.LOL

    You guys are so naive… in this world, it’s not about OH JUST BE WHO YOU ARE and blah blah blah, this is how western kids are taught thinking everything is about me, myself, and I.

    That’s not how it works kid. She’s a public figure, and if she’s gonna want to post a picture of herself to the internet, she should at least look neat. Yes she’s not a ‘leng mo’ or Angelababy, but that doesn’t give her an excuse to dress and look so poorly in pictures. I don’t give a damn if she even wear her clothes when the camera is not on her, but how she present herself when the camera is there is important.

    That is why people say you have to dress to impress. You’re not gonna walk in with your pajamas to an interview just because you have years and years of experience and pile of certificates and diploma in your portfolio thinking that’s all it matters. Yes it’s shallow, but that’s how society works kids.

      I didn’t mean that she should put on 2 inches thick of makeup or wearing ball dresses at home (You guys are absolutely ridiculous to say such non-sense), but the very basic of looking neat is not that difficult.

    You guys who put so much attention on Anita’s looks are funny. People grow old and people grow out of their beauty… That’s a fact of life, unless you go against nature to do something bout it. Plus, it’s their choice – just like those who choose to have plastic surgery, it’s their choice.
