Michelle Ye May Not Marry Until 60 Years Old

Acting since 1999, Michelle Ye’s (葉璇) career has expanded to working behind the scenes as a producer and scriptwriter. Her greatest ambition is to have viewers enjoy her creations, which also serves as motivation to continue and learn in the industry. Although her career-oriented attitude makes it hard to find time for love, Michelle is in no rush since she has learned to become independent at a young age.

If Michelle had to choose, acting is actually her least favorite job in comparison to scriptwriting and producing a series. She loves to be creative and appreciates the amount of control a scriptwriter and producer receive. “I can do whatever I want with a production, whereas actors aren’t able to. There’s nothing you can do if you get a bad script and costume when you’re an actor.” However, Michelle is quick to agree that being a producer meant facing a heavy amount of pressure.

No matter how much work Michelle had to do, she preferred completing everything herself to get the desired results. At first, Michelle found other scriptwriters to help out, but their work was unsatisfactory. She expressed, “Of course it’s best to have others do the work while you earn the credit, but I realized that’s not possible. The more you want to glorify, the more you’ll have to suffer. It’s entirely equal.” There was one year when Michelle suffered from the stomach flu for three months, but she never stopped working and wrote the script on her laptop in bed.

Speaking of social pressure from the media, Michelle expressed she only cares about the opinions of those she values and those who value her in return. Although often linked with elite rich men and her male co-stars, Michelle remained unfazed. “Maybe it’s due to the fact that I’m nearsighted since childhood. Those people whom I cannot see, I don’t know how they’re looking at me.” As for strangers, it did not really matter what they thought of her.

Parents’ Divorce Affected Outlook on Love Life

Michelle’s parents’ divorced when she was only nine years old. She recalled, “That day, my mother left the house with a large furniture truck. She left a $3000 check on the bathroom ceiling, and told me to use it when I needed to. I cried and asked her not to leave, but she left anyway.” When Michelle turned 13, she moved to the United States and lived alone. Her father gave her $500 USD each month, but half was paid for rent, school fees, and meals. After being accepted into a university with full scholarship, she never spent her father’s money again.

Since childhood, Michelle has learned not to rely on others. Thus, she is currently not in a hurry to find a boyfriend. “I don’t feel lonely because I’m used to being alone,” Michelle said. Concentrating on work, Michelle added she might follow Liza Wang’s (汪明荃) steps and not consider marriage until the age of 60.

    Ain’t nothing wrong with a woman being too independent. If she doesn’t, don’t. Keep your assets and hardwork to yourself. 🙂

      And, keep her freedom to do whatever she wants without having to stress or serve any man and his family. Just have many friends.

      Independent women (like Michelle Ye) don’t need “useless leeches” in her life to give her stress.

        Well just because a woman is independent or successful does map it mean her husband must be a useless leecher. Just because she is successful does not mean that all men who may date/ end up with her is any less successful. I am sure if she was going to get married then she most likely will marry someone just as successful or even more successful.

    Welp, we live in a different generation now. Women are a lot more independent, and people are having less kids since it is considered a “burden” nowadays. I live close to my elementary school in Canada. I remember looking out at the balcony and seeing very little kids playing in the grass field. In my days (90’s – 00) there were TONES of kids playing. Probably more in the 80’s

    her childhood sounds terrible. she was effectively abandoned by both parents. not a fan of hers but it’s nice to see how successful she is now through her own hard work.

    Some women thought getting married is the key to happiness. As long as we’re comfortable whether single or married it doesn’t matter, most importantly we’re happy. Hopefully Michelle is always happy and healthy, finding fulfilment in whatever she does.

        Hi Vincent,
        Key to a new family? I’m not sure about this. I’ve seen some ppl got married because they’ve been dating for ages. They got married because they felt obliged too, maybe pressure from their family, face or something they think every couple should do after dating for years. Peer pressure? I really dont know, some I’ve seen got married but they decided not to have any children. Some have their own separate lives, living under the same roof but having different things some of them dont even talk and not in good terms.

        I think most women prefer to settle down once they meet the right person. Whether or not to have children, it’s more for companionship. But if living together is not going to make you happier, then it’s better to remain single

    Not the first time I hear her talking about her independent childhood and lack of a relationship with her parents. But does anyone if she is on talking terms with either of her parents?

      I heard that her relationship with her dad is better due to her stepmother. I think she has a good relationship with her stepmother which helped her strengthen her bond with her dad. Not sure about her mom though.

        You are welcome and I hated it was her stepmother that encouraged her to enter the Ms. Chinese pageant which paved the way for her to enter show biz. It is great that her stepmother is so nice.

      Never thought she’s pretty, worse now that her image is forever tarnished by her gold digging (inside her nose I mean).

    It’s 21st century. Not everyone wants to get married. We’re no longer obliged to it. As long as she’s happy with her current life, one day she will meet the right person.

    You could tell from the above picture that her right nostril is bigger than the left one. Guess she picks the left nostril often. I wonder if she eats it too from time to time. Yummy!

      Very slim chance,especially if she left on bad terms. But if she left on good terms she may come back one day as a favor to TVB.
