“I once had to hide in the trunk of a car like an illegal immigrant. I had no choice but to avoid the reporters… Once, my car was surrounded by 500 policemen and was told the police would arrest me. I also experienced spending 5-6 days in a police station without sleeping… I once hid in the trunk of a cab all the way to the outskirts of Shenzhen so I could leave Hong Kong, the next time I take this kind of car trip, I’ll bring sandwiches and drinks. That was a long and nervous breakdown-inducing ride”
– Edison Chen, ex-sex recording movie star
Said in an interview with Time Out: Hong Kong (man, are they good with getting the candid interviews or what?) when asked about the aftermath of his infamous sex scandal. However, the experience wasn’t all bad. Being a “method actor” of the Stanislavsky school (much like Robert DeNiro), the whole terrible “illegal immigrant”-esque deal has helped him learn how to play roles of fugitives very well.
