Gillian Chung (鍾欣潼) went through ups and downs in her life after her sexually explicit photos with Edison Chen (陳冠希) were exposed in 2008. Fortunately, she met her Mr Right and married a Taiwanese doctor, Michael Lai (賴弘國) in 2018 and discussed about her inner feelings about that scandal during a Chinese reality show, Everybody Stand By (演員請就位) lately.
In the program, Gillian played Ruan Lingyu (阮玲玉) who was famous in 1930s and had a successful career. However because of her failed relationship, Lingyu decided to end her life. Gillian described she could understand Lingyu’s position completely and gossip was a fearful thing: “I understand she fails to ignore the rumours and also cannot face many people when going through ups and downs at the time. Anyway, gossip was a fearful thing and I cannot even accept it, and not to mention about during 1935. It can drive people crazy completely.”
