Chow Yun-fat was born on 18 May 1955. He first came to prominence as a film star in Hong Kong. He’s also widely known in Asia for his frequent work with director John Woo. Some of his works with the director are the action films A Better Tomorrow, The Killer and Hard Boiled. He soon entered the international radar thanks to his starring role in the film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, which was released in 2000.
He later played Captain Sao Feng in the Hollywood film Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End. In the 2010s, he starred in the films Let the Bullets Fly, The Assassins, The Last Tycoon, and The Monkey King. He also starred in the film From Vegas to Macau II and its sequel From Vegas to Macau III. His latest role on the big screen is the movie Project Gutenberg.
Has Chow Yun-fat had Plastic Surgery?
The actor, mostly known for his action and dramatic roles in Asian films, as well as some notable performances in Hollywood, is not immune to aging. Now in his 60s, he’s even admitted in an interview to have undergone a cosmetic procedure. This is to address his face’s signs of aging. He said: “As I grew older, my eyelids began to droop.”
He went on to reveal: “I began going for cosmetic surgery in Hong Kong when I was filming the God Of Gamblers in 1989.” He later said: “If you go to Hong Kong for cosmetic surgery, I can introduce you to the doctor. He’s cheap and good.”
With this, we learn that the actor started getting some cosmetic enhancements when he was just in his 30s. Now that he’s older, we can assume that the frequency of his visits to his plastic surgeon has increased. On the other hand, it doesn’t seem that the Hong Kong actor has undergone anything invasive. Plus, it really seems that his doctor is really good because the effects of the procedures on his face are very subtle.
