Chilam Cheung Says Anita Yuen is a Tiger Mom
Looks like Chilam Cheung (張智霖) might be kneeling on glass tonight!
On the set of his new commercial, the 47-year-old Hong Kong actor said he still has the mindset of a youth, exclaiming that he would love to exchange cars and update his technology whenever he’s given a chance. Asking if his wife, Anita Yuen (袁詠儀), would even allow Chilam to purchase race cars, he laughed and said, “I have no race cars because we have no space to park them!”
Gushing about his love for all types of automobiles, Chilam said he once passed on the opportunity to purchase a classic car. “I regret not buying it at the time, because that car is worth a lot more now. It turns out that classic cars and art pieces all raise in value in a similar way.”
Chilam confesses that he also has a love for art, and has a habit of collecting painting pieces.
At the mention that his son, 11-year-old Morton, is currently in Beijing for an academic exchange, Chilam shared that his son traveled there without the help of his parents. Has Anita been feeling emotional about her son growing older? Chilam said, “It seems so. She has said that it’s time to let go and let our son free. That must be done.” Asking if Chilam felt the same way, he joked, “As in letting me free too?” Laughing, he said, “That can’t happen! It’s dangerous! (Are you jealous of your son?) I won’t be! My future is in his hands!”
Leaving your only child to travel out on his own can be worrisome for parents, but Chilam said he’s been okay about it. “I feel that I am a rather open-minded parent. Let nature take its course. I’m sure the school will take good care of him. You can’t be so worried all the time, but his mother may think differently. (What about Anita?) She’s a tiger mom!” Realizing what he said, Chilam laughed. “You guys are always doing this to me!” He then added that Anita is a strong mom, and is the stricter parent.
