Andy Lau Once Turned Down A Hollywood Role ‘Cos He Didn’t Want To Lick A Foreigner’s Toes
He also auditioned for a part in a Spider-Man film but did not get it in the end, much to his regret.
Over the years, there have been several Hongkong acting legends who ventured out of Asia to dip their toes into the world of Hollywood, such as Jet Li, Jackie Chan, Chow Yun Fat, and most recently, Tony Leung.
However, one showbiz icon who has yet to cross this venture off his list is Andy Lau, 59.
Last month, a fanclub for the Heavenly King posted an old video of his 2010 appearance on a Taiwanese variety show, where host Mickey Huang asked Andy why he hasn’t gone on to develop his career in Hollywood like Jay Chou and other Asian stars.
