Shu Qi Opens Up About Tough Childhood; Says Her Mum Scolded Her When She Got Into A Car Accident
But life didn’t necessarily become easier for the actress after she found fame.
Taiwanese screen siren Shu Qi may have found fame, fortune, and love as an adult, but did you know that she had a tough time growing up ‘cos of her very strict parents? In fact, it was so bad that she goes as far as to say that she “didn’t have a childhood”.
“I had to be very observant of my parents’ reactions so I could keep a distance when they were in a bad mood, otherwise I would get scolded,” she recalled in a recent interview in Tencent documentary My Legacy.
“Whenever I heard my father’s motorcycle coming home and the metal gate opening downstairs, I would be terrified and run away as far as I could to hide, even if it was the middle of the night. So I think growing up in that kind of environment with those experiences made me into an extremely sensitive person.”
