Donnie Yen Chi Tan two nights ago attended a Jacob & Co. press conference with his wife Cissy Wang. Chi Tan attended as its global spokesperson. He received one of 88 global limited edition watches. On the face of his was the Chinese character Tan. Chi Tan this time returned to Hong Kong for the event. Later he will return to the Mainland to continue work on THE MONKEY KING (DAI LAU TIN GUNG). This time he not only played Sun Wukong but also served as the film's action director. This time due to the character's 72 transformations, each time make up took up 5 hours already to put on and a hour to remove. He said that in order to prevent skin irritation, he could not wear make up everyday.
The film had many superstars. Chi Tan honestly said that actor schedule was hard to accommodate, but in this business no one would approach anyone who was not popular. That has always been the way during his decades in the business. Earlier when he attended the MONKEY press conference in Beijing, he was called "the shortest in the universe" due to the actor height difference. Chi Tan did not mind. He felt that the height of a man was in his heart. Having grace, depth and forgiving are the most important. He said that his wife has always been taller than him. He only thought the report was funny as it claimed that he wore height enhancing shoes. He said that if such shoes existed he would like a recommendation so he could wear them next time.
