Chinese actress comes out of closet

Chinese actress Lan Yen has announced on Friday that she is a lesbian, according to Chinese news reports.

The 26-year-old Lan said that she "would not choose men in reality" during a press conference introducing her new movie.

The bold announcement caught many by surprise.

She also told the reporters that her "eternal idol" was late Leslie Cheung, a world-renown Chinese actor who was also known to be homosexual.

Lan Yen is an emerging actress who recently gained fame by starring in the Hong Kong erotic film 3D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy.

Being a lesbo is quite trendy in the acting world, one day U would find her declaring her marriage to a real man .. saying she has converted.

What a waste ... she could have been a happily married mummy of few kids if she is here in Sg with a Sg guy .... :p :D

If she really wants to cure her lesbian problem .... come Sg now ... and date with our local Sg guys ... sure will make her want to be a man's wife and her man's baby-maker ... :)

Lesbian? Okay what. Both ways win in the entertainment industry but despicable to quote Leslie. He gained fame with his talent of writing, singing, acting and a compassionate heart. You gained by stripping.
