Chen Hanwei Celebrates His Record-Breaking Sixth Star Awards Best Actor Win By Cooking Instant Noodles
Maggi mee is good enough for a starving man who also happens to be the most awarded leading man in Mediacorp.
Just two years after winning Best Actor in 2017, the same year Zoe Tay also coupled him for Best Acting honours, Chen Hanwei has yet again bagged the Best Actor trophy, at the Star Awards 2019, but he’s distracted from his win by… hunger pangs. “Wah, I’m going home to cook Maggi mee. I’m so hungryyy! I just want something to eat,” he groans to 8days.sg at the show’s afterparty, which took place last night (April 14) at Mediacorp’s MES Theatre.
Just then, a minder hands Hanwei a small plate, on which rests a single tempura prawn, one piece of fried chicken and a square of chocolate cake. Hanwei clutches the plate gratefully, but he can barely lift his fork before he’s bombarded by excited strangers eager for a photo with the Best Actor.
