Legendary Liu Xiaoqing is the first guest star of talk show Telling Maria.
In the interview, not only does she talk about her plastic surgery, marriage and tax evasion prison sentence, but also the unfair treatment of mainland China and Hong Kong actors back then, reports hktopten.
She revealed that when she filmed Burning of the Imperial Palace, she once stole Tony Leung Ka Fai's meal ticket!
When Liu Xiaoqing first started acting, she received 50 yuan monthly. Now, she is a multimillionaire.
When she made movies she suffered a lot. In the early 80's when she and Leung ka Fai made Burning of the Imperial Palace, she was already a star but Ka Fai was just making his film debut.
At the time they even had communication problems.
Liu Xiaoqing pointed out that back then Hong Kong and mainland China actors were treated unfairly.
Every meal, she only had a bun while Hong Kong's Leung Ka Fai had catered food.
Once, she finally broke down and cried, since she was still little.
Everyone was frightened and asked her what happened; she said that she wanted to eat some meat and rice.
She also revealed that Leung Ka Fai stayed at a hotel.
He had an endless amount of meal tickets, so many that some were ripped up and tossed into the toilet.
Once, she stole some meal tickets while Leung Ka Fai did not notice and shared them with three other actors.
Leung Ka Fai never found out until she told him later.
