5 June 2013 / 3 years 4 months ago

In the recent series Slow Boat Home, Selena plays the second female lead -- gold digger HK girl Heidi. Selina Li said in an interview: "My role is very different from myself. She will put her relationships aside, her career is priority no matter what."As for me personally, I am a person who really, really, really value my relationships. I will contribute and sacrifice a lot for my partner. I am also a loyal person, such as a friend who is down, I wouldn't leave him or perhaps when many people are bashing him, I would come out and speak justice for him."This "him" Selena that refers to is the only boyfriend she had admitted to dating since her debut, Patrick Tang. The two dated for 5 years and broke up in 2010.After her break up, Selena had been surrounded by many rumours and gossip.Her rumoured partners included the nightclub boss (Mo Yik Ming), finance expert (Phil) and most recently Fiona Sit's ex-rumored boyfriend Reggie Martin, the executive of The Macao Venetian.Selena said: "The press made me sound like a sl*t, so miserable. Actually I'm just a normal girl. If you are single in this industry, you go out for a drink, then you're trying to hook up with a guy; if you go to a dimmer place, then you're partying at a nightclub."The pen is in the hand of other people, they can, write whatever they want about you, I can't do anything about it. This is the reality, you have to accept it and the only thing you can do is to just try to avoid it as much as possible. Nowadays, once it gets dark outside, I don't go out. Hahaha."As for her other half, Selena said she won't choose someone wealthy. "I'm not saying they aren't good people, just we all have different experiences. Also, they have too many girls around them and may not know how to cherish you."I don't need a man with money, too much money is hard to satisfy. For example, when I was young I would be happy with just a cup of cola, but now its not the same. Perhaps riding on a cruise would make me happier."Photos in the gallery show snapshots of Selina Li 'manhunting' at nightclubs after ending her four-year relationship.
