Anita, the highly-anticipated biopic about iconic Cantopop diva Anita Mui, premiered on November 9 in Hongkong. While Anita’s close friend and stylist Eddie Lau was absent from the gala event, the 70-year-old did open up about their friendship in a rare interview.
The fashion designer reminisced about his time with Anita, recalling that he used to tell her off very harshly whenever he felt that she’d done something wrong.
Sometimes, Anita would even walk over to his house for dinner, where she would get scolded by Eddie. He described Anita as an “obedient student”, adding that she never talked back to him.
He also revealed that Anita was a very loyal friend, who would often lend money to friends in need.
However, there were too many people who would approach her for a loan, and Eddie said he would rebuke her for never saying no to them.
But Anita continued lending these friends money without telling Eddie.
