I can respect a difference of opinion. I can even respect being actively disliked. What I cannot begin to understand is why, if Chow Yun-Fat hates us so much, this DUMB@$$ keeps coming back?
Chow seems to hate the American lifestyle, but he seems to have no problem with American money. Hmm…are you sure he’s not French??
HONG KONG — Chow Yun-Fat says he can’t stand the American way of life and has no plans to pursue U.S. permanent resident status. “I can’t stand talking English every day or the lifestyle there … not to mention the food,” the Hong Kong-born film star was quoted as saying in Friday’s editions of Chinese-language newspaper The Sun.
“I only go to America for work,” he said. “When I finish work, I leave immediately. I won’t stay one day longer.”
Chow rose to fame in Hong Kong with gangster movies before moving on to Hollywood films such as “The Replacement Killers” and “Anna and the King.” He became an instant star with the 2000 release of “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” the Ang Lee-directed epic that was nominated for 10 Oscars, including Best Picture.
How long before we see a Republican-organized boycott of Chow’s films? C’mon now; Chow may be successful, but it’s not like the guy is the Chinese incarnation of Laurence Olivier….
Of course, if Cat Stevens/Yusuf Islam can be denied entry to the US because he’s on a terrorist watch list, couldn’t we just do the same thing to Chow and be done with it??
Generally speaking, it’s never a good idea to bite the hand that feeds you or pads your bank account. Then again, this is what makes Chow the perfect DUMB@$$.
