Cecilia Cheung claims she was target of sexual harassment in cinema

Hong Kong actress Cecilia Cheung revealed on a radio broadcast that she was recently the victim of sexual harassment.

According to a report on, a foreigner inappropriately touched her chest while they were arguing at a movie theater.

The 33-year-old disclosed that while she was attempting to silence her mobile phone before the movie began, a foreign man who was beside her suddenly grabbed her by the hand and tried to steal her phone.

Cecilia said, "He was trying to steal my phone and was shouting English profanities at me.

"He also kept on rubbing against my chest. I asked him if he was trying to sexually harass me, and that if he immediately apologized, I would let it go.

"He wouldn't budge, so I called the police."

When the police arrived and interrogated the man, he refused to admit to sexual harassment and also claimed that Cecilia was "stuffing" her phone all over his face. Cecilia explained that she was only trying to prove to the man that she was adjusting her phone to silent.

The man finally apologised when the police asked for eyewitnesses. "I forgave him," said Cecilia.

"I decided not to press charges. I think everyone can make mistakes. My life has taught me to forgive others. Being able to forgive others is a great fortune!"

Cecilia professed that she never understood what it meant to genuinely hate someone, saying, "When I was around eight years old and was playing squash with my older sister, I wondered how my sister was able to hit the ball so hard.

"She told me I'd be able to do it if I pictured the ball as someone I really hated. In the end, I stopped, because I couldn't figure out who I hated. I don't know how to hate. I don't have hatred, and I think that's my best gift."

Nonetheless, Cecilia admitted that she was a bit of a rebellious child.

"I was always the kind of person who did whatever I wanted. "When I was 18 years old, I would smoke cigarettes and do press interviews at the same time. I thought I was being my true self! Thinking back, I was indeed really rebellious. I just didn't like the "virginal" image which the company wanted me to project.

"I got popular too fast and I thought money was easy to earn. I was hard to deal with and not likeable." Cecilia added that now she is older and a mother of two, she has mellowed out.

According to MyPaper, Cheung also shared on the radio show that she has not met a man who is "more capable" than her,  which was taken to mean that ex-husband Nicholas Tse also did not make the cut.

She added: "When I like a guy, I will listen to him and do what he says, guys need to maintain their pride!"

I don't think being molested is something will dawn on her, in entertainment circle, this is normal, I think the guai lo also did say things humiliated her, possibly recognise her from the photos saga, I personally think is a despicable act, is good she stand up against such peoples
