Christopher Lee and Fann Wong's son Zed once wrote 'My mum is very famous' in school essay
Do you have famous parents? Better to keep it on the down-low, says celebrity pair Fann Wong and Christopher Lee.
At least that’s what they told their eight-year-old son Zed when they learnt that he wrote about them in a composition for school.
In an interview with Taiwanese media outlet ET Today, Lee said their son had known his parents were celebrities from a young age, and revealed that he once wrote in an essay: “My mum is Fann Wong and she is very famous.”
Lee, 51, and Wong, 52, who have been married since 2009, were highly amused by it, but reminded their son: “You actually wrote ‘very famous’? Can you be more low profile about things?”
During the interview, Lee was also asked about his upcoming movie Workers, in which he plays a father who has issues with his son, but reconciles with him in the end.
Drawing a parallel between fiction and reality, Lee said Zed wasn’t yet old enough to develop conflicts with his parents yet.
In reference to a scene where his character’s son accidentally catches his parents being intimate, Lee was asked what he would do in such a situation.
He laughed and said it would likely not happen.
Nonetheless, he added calmly: “(My son would understand that) it is a natural interaction, so it won't be a problem.”
Workers is currently showing in cinemas in Taiwan.
