In an opening ceremony for Hugo Boss at its Central flagship store last night, Chow Yun fat and his wife Jasmine Tan were invited as guests.
The star, however, looked like a shade of his former self and it was reported that he had lost 40 pounds in a year.
According to an article in Hktopten, this had made his wife very worried and she had asked him to see a doctor.
He joked: "I lost 30 pounds and am down to skin and bones, but when I am thinner, I walk faster."
Some who were at the event said he looked youthful, to which he said: "I went to Wui Chun Tong on Stanley Street and drank some rejuvenation medicine."
He also clarified that he did not lose 40 pounds as reported. He said: "I only lost 30 pounds.
"I started losing weight while working on From Vegas To Macau. Now, it has been nine months.
"Actually I really like to eat, I can really eat,rice, fish, meat and other normal food.
Normally I don't eat at night, only twice during the day.
In the afternoon I have fruits, potatoes, a lighter fare.
However with 30 pounds less I feel very comfortable, I walk faster too. Every week I go hiking, and occasionally I get a back massage."
