I was the class clown. The teachers’ comment in my handbook was always “talkative.” Not “best sense of humor,” but talkative. My dad left when I was very young. He was a gambling addict. I also became a professional gambler when I was 17. I lost a shitload of money, and to escape the loansharks, I went to Taiwan. I was 22 when I came back and I got into construction. I was doing the house of some TV station producer, he thought I was talkative too and he asked me to audition. I went to work drunk everyday, then lovesick. I did like acting. But I was acting on the station that nobody watched, the pay was shit, and the girls kept leaving me. I became a producer when Kent Cheng Juk-si, the veteran actor, told me, “Hey you need a goal.” And I had none. He suggested that I produce. He told me to watch a movie 50 times - watch my own part, then the other actors, then the supporting cast. Then the camera work, then lighting, then costumes, artwork. And then listen to the soundtrack. If you’re busy, you’ll feel fulfilled. I’m more into producing now because as an actor you’re forced to be passive - you stay at home waiting for agents to call, and end up playing Wii all day. The film industry is the worst it’s been in 100 years. Investors always want to use the mega-star actors and directors of old, whether they have produced any new blockbusters or not. New directors and new talents really don’t get much opportunity. I'm trying to give everyone a chance to shine in my movies. I fall in love all the time. It’s just like getting a cold. You feel peculiar at first, and then it’s a full-blown fever. I guess my immune system isn’t strong enough. But if I don’t take action, it’ll go away in four to six days. I took action with my wife during those four to six days. Young people are so dumb. If someone finds you irritating, just let them be. There are so many people in this city. Just find someone else. Once you turn 25, you’ll know who likes you and who doesn’t. If you don't find a person irritating, chances are that you’re probably not irritating to them. It’s that simple. In the past, I tried to do too much, so I ended up doing less. Now, I aim to do less, and I realize that I’ve still got so much more to do. Most important thing in my life - money. No wait, money is secondary. The main thing is to avoid hassle. Money can be a way to avoid hassle. I’d like to have a private jet so I can smoke on the plane. My opinion is that, if you own a plane, you’re rich. I don’t regret a fucking thing in my life. Not my gambling problem, nothing. The only thing I regret is the damn album i released this year. That album’s more fucked up than the fucked up things that happen at Homebase.
