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.”
