Bobby Au-yeung Supports Moses Chan Leaving TVB: “You Earn 3 Years in 10 Months”

Yesterday, My Ages Apart <誇世代> actor Bobby Au-yeung (歐陽震華) attended an abalone-eating promotional event, where he tried different cooking styles of the brand he endorses. The actor, a self-professed foodie, said he eats everything without discrimination, and doesn’t really care about the difference between “good food” and “cheap food.”

“If it tastes good, it’s good food,” said the 57-year-old actor. “In the past, it was a big deal to eat abalone, but for this style, you can do it casually,” he added with a smile.

Asking if Bobby also eats abalone for breakfast, he said, “I’ll only eat it when I crave it. After all, it’s now free for me!”

In regards to his My Ages Apart costar Moses Chan (陳豪), who intends to leave TVB when his contract is up this year, Bobby said, “You just don’t feel at peace when you haven’t tried what’s out there. We are all naturally curious.” Has Moses consulted Bobby for some advice? “He doesn’t need to! It’s not like I’m very familiar with what’s out there either! He’s an honest guy. He can’t be bullied.”

Pointing out that ten months of salary in outside agencies equated to three years of salary at TVB, Bobby exclaimed, “Not even! (Then why did you come back to TVB?) I like it here, because of the people.”

      Celebrities are way too greedy, shallow and materialistic. Honestly the amount of money that they earn, is more than enough to settle for life. Instead of being happy and content with their life, they will still crave for more and more money and wealth.

        @killer02 Bobby and Moses calibre make enough money. They don’t need it but its so much easier and high pay up North. Imagine yourself choosing between a low paying, hard work job or easily finding a high paying, easy work job, no doubt most people will choose the later.
        The top tvb stars have that option to choose. The low to mid tvb stars still struggle to make ends meet at tvb so they must try their luck to head to China or risk staying their whole life at a low pay, hard work job.

          @mike @lyu310 @happybi @ The one who you’re referring to that is being low paid are those green leaf artists and 3rd line/4th line artists. Anyone with leading status at TVB are millionaires. All A-listers at Tvb such as Bobby, Moses, Wayne lai, Kenneth ma ,Ruco, and Vincent wong are earning 6 to 7 figure sum per series. They obviously aren’t being low paid. Not to mention, they can even make more money from attending events, appearance fees, and product endorsements.

          People who says celebrities never have enough money to settle for life is bullshit! If they could afford to spend several million dollars on luxury cars, brand names watches, expensive designer clothes, then they obviously have more than enough money to settle for life. The reason why they never have enough money are due to their lavish lifestyle. If they could stop wasting their millions buying all those expensive useless crap, then they will have more enough money to retire and settle for life.

          This just goes to show how unfair life can be for ordinary people compared to celebrities and the richest. Ordinary citizens who work hard all their lives, yet still struggle to make ends meet and feed their families, while the rich people who not only have enough money they do not need, but there not using it to help the poor instead they are spending it on mansions, multiple luxury cars, yachts, designer clothes , shoes and high end watches which they don’t need. All these celebrities are just greedy, materialistic and shallow people!

          @killer02 Why so sour?

          It’s not like any of those A-listers you named became A-lister the moment they stepped into the showbiz world. Most of them worked their asses off for years before they became popular. Right now, they are merely reaping the fruits of their labor and opting new opportunities that their fame has given them.

          If you are gonna keep harping that life is unfair, yes, that is true. Life is never fair. So, what’s the big deal? Everyone faces some kind of unfairness every single day. People who get laughed for being physically less appealing than others. People who get discriminated for their skin color. People who get paid less because they are considered to be the weaker gender. We all face some kind of unfairness in our daily lives but instead of complaining about it, we accept that life is never going to be fair and make the best with whatever we can everyday. So, let me ask you again. Why are you so sour about it?

          @rika Celebrities, entertainers as well as athletes are extremely overpaid and overrated. Many people would argue that celebrities work hard for their money, so they deserve what they have. I won’t deny the fact that celebrities do had a stressful life and worked very hard everyday, their job can be tough sometimes, but their jobs sure as hell aren’t hard enough to justify of having muti-millions of dollars a year. The amount of money paid to most of them is just ridiculous.

          Celebrities/entertainers are just normal human being like the rest of us. What makes them deserve so much more than ordinary people? The majority of the working class and middle class people who also worked extremely hard throughout their entire life and still struggle to make ends meet, receive injuries from their jobs that are way worse than any celebrity faces, and get paid only pennies in comparison. There are professional people who help others, save lives and contribute to the society and are of greater value, such as doctors, heart surgeons, physician, teachers, firefighters, they also had a lot of stress in their life. They worked extremely hard for years, spending countless hours a day at work with little sleep, but they still don’t get paid half as much as celebrities and entertainers do. There is no way this is fair by any means for a celebrity to get paid muti-millions of dollars.

          @killer02 It all boils down to risk reward tradeoff. You may think celebrities, entertainers and athletes do not deserve that kind of money but the reality is they are overpaid for the risk that they are bearing. One big scandal can wipe out the future jobs for a celebrity for years (or even decades) or a severe injury may render an athlete completely immobile or unable to play again. When you compare that to ordinary people who earn fixed income each month; regardless of anything, they still get paid. Most importantly, for normal employees, they do not have to bear the same risk like entrepreneurs, salespeople, celebrities, athletes etc. do. Of course, you can say normal employees may get retrenched during corporate restructurings. Yet, most of the time, these people could still rebound and find another company hiring them for parallel roles because they have transferable skills. The same cannot be said for people who are working careers which require them to stake their reputations out there and mainly rely on their looks or acting skills.

          Not to forget, there’s also the supply demand which drives their remuneration up north. The more popular the celebrity is, the more the corporations are willing to pay for their endorsements as part of their branding strategy. These marketing and branding costs are then passed back to the consumers when the products are purchased. Thus, if you don’t want these celebrities to get so much money, it’s simple really. Stop buying Pepsi, Nike, SK II, Puma, Chanel, Shiseido, Samsung etc. etc. etc. There’s a reason why there are so many budding Youtubers. Showbiz is a higher barrier to entry but Youtube, well, anyone with an account can talk crap in a vlog and upload it. Michelle Phan, a well known Youtuber raised millions of funding and got endorsements from big brands simply because she is popular in Youtube. If you really want to blame, don’t blame the celebrities. Blame the people who support these celebrities because they are the ones who are inadvertently feeding their popularity and contributing to their deep pockets.

          @killer02 Whether people in the entertainment make too much has nothing to do with your original statement about how these people should be happy where they are.

          It is NOT their fault that they’re in a field where people get overpaid! Maybe blame yourself for watching their shows and paying to see their movies. I guess if you want to demonstrate the power of a consumer, stop supporting them.

          Forreal – we can be powerful. Look at crap movies like Aloha. People stood their ground and the movie flopped.

          Maybe think about that before you blame celebrities for being terrible people because a better paid company wants to recruit them. Why so butt-hurt? Maybe you should become a celebrity so you can make more than us and we can judge you for it like you have to them.

          @lyu310 @rika Regardless of what you say, celebrities don’t deserve all their fame and wealth. They’re making way to much money than they deserve. The society must be truly crazy to pay these celebrities such a huge salary. We should stop worshipping them and lining their pockets with millions for nothing. Don’t the people who work their butts off everyday just to get a meal at the end of the day deserve money too?

          Why should a person who works in the entertainment industry get paid 10 times more than any other profession? Although Celebrities/entertainers do entertain us, but they don’t contribute much to the overall productivity of a society. Therefore, they don’t deserve to be paid millions upon millions of dollars every year. People such as doctors, nurse, physician, heart surgeons, teachers, firefighters, who save the lives of other, help people and contribute to the society. They should be the one who deserves the big bucks instead of celebrities. They worked just as hard as them, but they do not earn anywhere near as a celebrity who earns millions upon millions just for acting or singing. Celebrities don’t risk their lives to save people instead they are gaining fame and fortune.

          There are many people around the world who are starving, working their @ss off everyday just to make a decent living, struggling to pay bills and do not have enough money to support their families yet, billions of dollars are being wasted on celebrities who not only have enough money they do not need, but there not using it to help people instead they are spending it on mansions, fancy cars, yachts, designer clothes and branded watches which the don’t need.

          @killer02 Regardless of what you say and think, this IS the capitalist society we are all living in. Unless you are capable of bringing change to the society mindset or have sufficient military power to push the whole world into a socialism structure, there’s no point ranting here no matter how “valid” you think your points may be. I, for one, wouldn’t want to live in a society where all my resources are being dictated and allocated by some stupid central government.

          Some ordinary folks struggle with money because they are terrible at handling it. The equation of wealth is simple. You either save money or you find ways to create more income. If people have no money to support their families, the first question they gotta ask themselves is: “why did i not have proper family planning?”. Breeding like rabbits is not going to help if the family does not even have the financial ability to raise the children. Nobody is obliged to degrade their lifestyle to help you feed your kids.

          @rika @lyu310 Celebrities are paid way TOO MUCH money, more than they can handle. Period. Entertainment is not a necessity like a heart transplant or escaping from a burning building or having a criminal arrested. Without celebrities our world might be boring, (for some people, I have never watched their movies or listened to their songs) but we would survive. But lets say you needed to be taken to a hospital immediately. Without the paramedics, God knows what will happen to you. Okay, so some people say they are stressed due to standing in bright lights in front of a camera with makeup rivaling the size of the Atlantic Ocean . Well, guess what. Not only are they paid millions per song or something to buy off a mansion, diamonds, jewellery, custom color sports cars, and fancy things for their stuff before saying their poor, but their little stress is NOTHING compared to knowing that an innocent person’s life is in your hands and YOU are the only one that can help. Imagine saving lives and helping other people’s lives every day and barely being paid enough to support your self. Then you know that Celebrities, singers and athletes are being paid way too much money like spoiled children and less than half of them use for a good cause, knowing the homeless, starving people out there. They are a bad influence to the nations children! I lost count of celebrities dying from overdosing on their drugs or something. Anyone else wonder why the economy is so bad?

          Working hard isn’t enough. How can you expect high pay just because someone is trying hard to support family. The money has to come from somewhere. Just because someone is working hard in physical labouring for 10+ hours a day does not mean they deserve lots of money. Money is generated from the service offered or products sold. Farmers work hard but products are cheap.

          @killer02 DO NOT put words in my mouth.

          What I was trying to say is it is fair game if an already high paying actor wants to move on. If they can earn more elsewhere AND get more rest, they’d be an idiot not to go. That has nothing to do with whether someone is materialistic or not.

          Are you some monk who owns no possessions?? If not, you are just like us mere mortals.

          Ever heard of living within your means? Guess what? When you earn more, you can spend more?? And a random troll is not going to make them change that. Why should they have to? Oh so, I’m a millionaire. I should only eat ramen so I can save this money. Rofl gtfo. Rich people just do not have the lifestyle you and I lead. That’s fine. They’ve earned it. But you want them to stay miserable at a place like TVB making 6-7 figures WHEN they can definitely make more in China?

          @lyu310 Reads my words carefully, all A-listers at Tvb are earning 6-7 figures sum PER SERIES! They film more than one series every year. Plus they can make even more money from stage performance, attending events, appearance fees, and product endorsements. The A-listers are earning at least 400k to 500k every year even if they stay at tvb. They obviously aren’t being low paid!

          @killer02
          The pay isn’t low for sure. Just low comparative to what’s on offer since the development of the mainland market. It extremely tough for TVB contracted artists to see others earning buckets of easy money in China when themselves are earning less for more work. In every industry, it is similar which is why many leave their jobs to go to a higher paid company. Loyalty can only go so far. However, I feel badmouthing TVB after leaving is betrayal because however harsh the conditions were, if it wasn’t for TVB then these artists would not even have a platform to make themselves known to the audience.

          @jimmyszeto All these celebrities are multi-millionaires or billionaires. Seriously how much money is consider enough for them? Despite being a millionaire, they are still not satisfied and continually strive for more wealth, status and fame. It really makes me wonder how much money do celebrities spend on a daily basic? If a ordinary citizen had a million dollars, they would’ve retired already and settle for life. All these celebrities are just greedy money hungry, materialistic and shallow people!

          I guess the biggest reason why celebrities never have enough money are due to their lavish lifestyle. For these people, it isn’t enough to have $1 million; they want $2 million, and those individuals with $2 million want $4 million and so forth. They have so much, yet it’s not enough because lifestyles expectations increase as their net worths soar.

          I think I can be happy but not fully satisfied. Just look at the Chinese businessmen earning much more than they can spend. Sending their children overseas on enormous pocket money that exceed our salaries. Also throwing money overseas to invest. You never hear them stopping and saying ‘I’ve earned enough’. Instead they seek to earn even more. That is human nature. Only the lowly educated, unambitious, waste of space people are happy to buy the lottery and hope to win a million and retire.

          It looked at one point that Moses and Bobby would not make it in the entertainment industry (Especially Bobby) so only a small percentage actually get to make these millions. Just like every industry there are ones who rise to the top and ones who fail or just about earn enough to live. In TVB there are the leads that earn millions and move on to make multimillions but you also get the ones who move on to HKTV crying their eyes out. It’s a cruel world where timing is key and battle of the finest/fittest. If someone has earning power why would they suddenly stop? I’m really concerned about your state of mind since a lack of skills or lack of success has affected your mindset and confidence in yourself. Better to work hard to overcome this than raging with jealousy.

          Working hard doesn’t mean anything! Some field allow you to make more money.. and some field doesn’t. If someone want to make a lot of money, they need to go into one of those field. Not all celebrities are famous and makes millions but hey they love what they do and it’s their own choice. Same for people who does job that they love but doesn’t necessary have a big paycheck. Where I used to work, some people get millions in bonuses… do I get jealous.. hell yeah.. but those people also work 10 plus hours a days and require a master degree and are put on plan to get other certification.. can I do that? Nope.. that’s why I don’t mind not making those millions.. that is just how life is… These celebrities have fans on their side but it doesn’t mean those fans will be there forever.. one day they can be famous.. one day, not.. so if they have the ability to make lots of money now, why shouldn’t they?

For these people, it isn’t enough to have $10million; they want $50 million, and those individuals with $50 million want $1 billion and is still not enough for them? How much more do they need? Every day people are not earning enough money and are suffering because they cannot support their family. Instead of money being spread around fairly to help the poor extremely high amounts of money are being given to celebrities to spend on these expensive useless crap, like mansions, fancy cars, yachts, designer clothes and brand name watches which they don’t need. Thus, celebrities are earning way too much, more than they can handle!

          @killer02 you are obviously missing the point. it doesn’t matter if they make 10 millions now.. it doesn’t mean they will make that much in the future. their incomes are not stable unlike a regular job where you know how much you make each month.

          for people who doesn’t make enough to support their family.. that itself is their problem. regular people are no different then celebrities.. they spend money on useless crap also! they can be worst as they can’t afford those items and live beyond their means! if they can’t afford things.. don’t buy it.. don’t have kids until they are ready.. stop complaining and get a degree or a certificate to earn more money!

          anyway, i’m done replying to your post as nothing will get through to you.. life will never be fair.. .. you control your own destiny so stop whining and go out and make more money!

          @happybi Lmfao their income is not stable? They are the richest person ever. Most of these celebrities had already reached the muti-millionaire or the billionaire status. They already have more than enough money to feed 10 familes and settle for life! Seriously how much more money is consider enough for them?

          @killer02 With all due respect to your arguments about how unfair life is and how undeserving these celebs are of their enormous paychecks, how much money they have or how they choose to spend it is none of your farking business. If you had the chance or ability to earn so much i doubt you would turn down those opportunities. You’re only sour cos you don’t have the looks or talents to make mega bucks like them. I will be expecting you to @ me with your standard cut and paste rebuttal. Don’t disappoint me.

          @killer02 right on cue buddy! If nothing else at least you’re consistent lmao. Have you ever looked in the mirror and seen the ugly face of jealousy staring back at you? Ok I will stop giving you the attention you crave. There’s just no use arguing with a troll/idiot.

          @passingby They earned more money than 99% of HKers, and it still wasn’t enough. Why are you so fXcking blind? If ordinary folks who work hard doesn’t justify high pay well then, why should celebrities deserve to be paid millions upon millions just for acting or singing? There is no way this is fair by any means for a celebrity to get paid muti-millions of dollars every year. Celebrities/entertainers are just normal human being like the rest of us. What makes them deserve so much more than ordinary people? Why should a person who works in the entertainment industry get paid 10 times more than any other profession? What makes celebrities different than those who actually have degrees, or are working a simple job? They’re recognized by the nation and we aren’t. They get paid immense amounts of money and even with how much they donate or pay in taxes, it’s ridiculous. In this society, it’s a high end or low end of society, and it’s not equal. Some people actually go to school to do what they love doing but the pay is NOTHING compared to what celebrities/athletes get. They’re treated as if they’ve done something noble for this world. Many people in this world actually need the money and deserve it, and its sad because they get majority of it while we just watch; deprived. What a great world.

        @killer02 Wouldn’t you want to be paid fairly in your field? It’s no secret TVB overworks their artist, and the pay is low. I don’t see what’s so wrong about venturing out, especially when you get to rest more and make more. It’s not about being materialistic. Moses is older now with a big family to raise. I don’t like the guy, but he should think about his future.

        It really is not more than enough to settle for life when the cost of living is also more for them. It’s not like they can all retire and continue to live lavishly.

        @killer02 your post is just too funny. This is not called shallow or materialistic..It’s call finally being able to break free from very bad working condition. If TVB was fair, artists won’t be leaving 1 after another. And Moses has 3 kids, money is never enough!! Even if they are paid a lot now doesn’t mean when they get older, they will make the same so of course they need to dig the gold now!!! If you work at a company for over 10 years and they only give you a measly raise but a new company recruit you and give you 10x as much but with better working condition, you will jump bump too!

      i think it’s a great thing for having different opportunities outside of hk or any opportunities. before china being a prominent market like it is today, hk celebs only had the choice to go to hk or go into film. it’s great to be able to go out, see what’s out there and then decide whether you like or not. this gives way to new stars to be born. besides, tvb is really stingy w/ pay.

      Anyone with ambition should target to work for the biggest companies in the industry and strive to earn the maximum money they can achieve. I understand there an older lead, less educated lead actors such as Bobby would put health and be satisfied with staying at TVB. The slightly younger generation should definitely try and venture further. 20-30 years ago, the ‘five tigers’ were tied heavily to long TVB contracts and from the success and money they have gained after leaving, it proves that it is a no brainer to venture elsewhere. However, there are a few examples of personalities who aren’t money and fame orientated such as Kwong Wah, Wong He and Sunny Chan but I expect them to be a rare breed. We can’t criticise actors/actresses to leave for easy money and small workload because we would make the same move in our own professions if the opportunity arrives.

        To be fair, Bobby does not need the money. From what I read, his wife’s family is fairly wealthy. That is also another reason why he only films like one series per year. If money was an issue, you can bet that he would be filming a lot more.

      I think it is healthy to have a change in work environment. Things can get boring when working with the same people under the same format for decades. Venturing out for a while is not a bad thing, especially as they are in their middle years. They need some stimulation in life and yet the time to rest.

      I believe that you can learn new things from meeting new people. China and HK operate under a different working culture. Maybe they can pick up new skills along the way, whether for their career or for their personal life.

      And if they do fail up north, they can still return to TVB after a few years. Maybe by then, TVB will learn to cherish them more.

      It’s a matter of personal choice and also advancement of own acting skills which is only possible if you work at different environment and with different people. In TVB you act with the same group. Can’t improve much. Some times it isn;t just about money but yes, we all know although they are paid well, they are still underpaid. But look at ratings and see the worth like how hollywood is with box office and all?

      Anyway Bobby doesn’t strike me as particularly ambitious. But I had such fun watching him and hos co stars in My Ages Apart. He wasn’t the best but all those NG scenes, you can see he puts everyone at ease with his jolly demeanour.

      When is money ever enough? Money is even more important if you have a family with kids and are the main breadwinner. Those who do not carry the financial burden will not understand how hard it is.

        @hetieshou Exactly! When you have a family, money is never enough!! Especially in HK when you have to pay so much for good healthcare.
