It was only a five-minute interview, but Huang Xiaoming (黄晓明) already told all that we needed to know about what he thinks about relationships. While the actor did not explicitly share his thoughts on his allegedly failing marriage with Angelababy—he sure did hint at it.
Since last summer, Huang and Angelababy—dubbed as the century’s couple by many media outlets—were rumored to have been going through some relationship troubles. The couple have been married since 2015 when they held their lavish multi-million dollar wedding in Shanghai, which led western media outlets to call them the “Kardashians of China.” They have one son, nicknamed Little Sponge.
Ever since rumors of their separation surfaced, Huang and Angelababy made little to no effort in denying the reports. Recently, Angelababy shared on social media that she went snowboarding with Little Sponge—Huang was not present, further fueling the rumors.
At a charity event in Mainland China which Huang attended recently, he opened up about his thoughts on relationships after hearing the story of an elderly father who sacrificed everything to care for his disabled daughter. Feeling emotional, Huang said, “I do feel that, in the end, only family relationships remain. You’ll realize that this world is filled with change. Whether it’s relationships with friends, work relationships, or anything else, they can all change with time, and slowly dwindle. The only relationship that remains strong till the end is with your family. He is selfless, and he has sacrificed. Your parents will always sacrifice for you.”
As for his thoughts on how to “counter age”, which was another topic that was brought up in the interview, Huang said, “I don’t want to think about it. There’s no point to it. I believe that your life is a gift from the heavens, but the heavens have every right to take it back from you. This gift won’t last forever in your hands, so you have to cherish every moment you have it. To me, it’s more important to live in the present. I am telling myself to not be obsessed with the past and stubborn about the future. Live in the now, and live it well. Cherish every single moment and person. That’s the most important thing.”
