It used to be something your mum and your grandmother would deal with in silence alone. But times are a-changing and stars like Xiang Yun are now opening up about the effects of aging, namely menopause.
“I hate seeing myself and my skin in the mirror. I can't accept my appearance anymore,” the 58-year-old sighs to us while she's getting her hair and make-up done at the imaging session for upcoming Ch 8 drama, A World of Difference, where she plays a gynaecologist. “You know, I’ve never really cared about being glamorous but this time round, I look really terrible. I cringe when I see myself on TV, because it’s so obvious that my face doesn’t look normal.”
We quickly give Xiang Yun-jie a quick scan and we tell her that she still looks as good as ever, but she waves us off with her usual gentle smile.
