Referred to as the "never-ageing goddess", 48-years old Kathy Chow (周海媚) is often praised for knowing how to maintain her youth. But she expressed disagreement towards this title and pointed to her face, saying: "There are wrinkles on my face!"
According to an article in Asian E-News Portal, she would also take selfies of herself without makeup, showing her wrinkles to everyone and saying: "Everyone tells me that I am not old, so I will let everyone see my wrinkles. You cannot be too serious and believe everything!"
She says she is not afraid of ageing, remarking: "Women can still be very beautiful at each stage of life, possessing different qualities and beauty. Twenty-year-olds possess the beauty of a twenty-year old, forty-year-olds possess the beauty of a forty-year old, even at 80, you would still be beautiful in your own way!"
She left a deep impression on audience members 20 years ago when she played Zhuo Zhiruo (周芷若) in The Heaven Sword and Dragon Saber (倚天屠龍記).
But she believes there is no meaning in mentioning this again: "At that time, I was around twenty. Now I am already at another stage in life, I will not always be Zhou Zhiruo forever. I have long passed the era and stage of Zhou Zhiruo. Whatever age I am, it will reflect on the roles that I play."
