Charlie Yeung Choi Nei spoke with the TVB Entertainment News program Star Talk about her new film KUNG FU JUNGLE (YUT GOR YUN DIK MO LUM) and her life after marriage.

Charlie said that her new film character was more depressed, so emotionally it was more difficult to work on that role. On the set she rarely spoke, reports HKTOPTEN.

After almost a year since her wedding to a Singaporean she still has not worked on any new film. She clarified, "Back then I retreated because I wanted to try something that I haven't done at age 22, 23.

"I just happened to publicize my boyfriend when my contract just ended, so there was some misunderstandings. In addition after I retreated I didn't get married or retire, I only started a business.

"Yet this time after marriage I won't retreat. I am 40 this year, and only at this stage in life I wanted to get married and it was time to travel the journey of life with my other half, start a family and learn together. Actually after marriage I have received many scripts.

"Family has always been important. My husband knows that I like movies and he encourages me to continue to work." Charlie now lives in Singapore. Every month she would return to Hong Kong to visit her family.

"This year to us finally had the feeling of dating, before we were friends, then dating and starting a business together. We are both workaholics, and we were very busy. Then without the business we were separated in different places and could only encourage each other.

"Looking back we seemed to have missed the dating part. Now we cook, watch movies, dive, travel together, doing what people do when they date." Speaking of cooking, Charlie admitted that lately she constantly cooked.

"I didn't have time to cook before, I rarely wanted to cook when I was by myself. Now with a family I started to become health conscious. I want a healthier diet for me and my husband. Now I really enjoy cooking because it can reduce stress and be quite a pleasure."
