Leslie Cheung on Off-Guard Tonight. If you can read between the lines, the guys seemed quite aware of Leslie’s orientation. The beginning part was all laughter and jokes. Then, he got a little more serious and talked about his life. He talked about his home. Leslie put a lot of emphasis on his home. He had a 3,000 sq ft home.
He even talked about when he lost his virginity. Interestingly, it’s an athletic girl with long hair.
When he talked about the obstacles he faced in his career, he really spilled the beans here, telling all about the boos, the criticisms and the sabotage he faced. He also related his filming experiences with Anita Mui, Cecilia Yip, Joey Wong and Cherie Chung. Great story-teller. He seemed rather philosophical in this video, but the expression on his face is that of someone who has already seen it all and weary with life. In retrospect, we may be able to see why he would kill himself.
