Interview by The 4th Franco-Chinese Month of the Environment
Why have you agreed to become the spokesperson of the Franco- Chinese Month of the Environment?
I have a special bond with France. I have been in the Consulate General of France in Hong Kong almost from the day I was born. By the time I was 3, I was already speaking French fluently!
(Laugh) One of my movies, Chinese Zodiac, was also shot in France. I feel very close to this country and cherish my ties to it. It is a great pleasure to be the guest of the Embassy of France in China as the patron of this year’s edition of the Franco-Chinese Month of the Environment. I have a longstanding commitment to environmental protection, but the energy of one man alone is almost bound to prove insufficient. We need to rally together all the citizens and take charge to tackle the environmental issue. I am glad to be the patron of this 4th edition of the Franco-Chinese Month of the Environment and to be in a position to call on a lot of people to join our cause.
