    Actress Michelle Yeoh said Tuesday that she was aware of Harvey Weinstein’s reputation and would have unleashed “years of martial arts training” on the fallen Hollywood mogul had he ever tried to sexually harass her. 

    In a statement to The Associated Press, the Malaysian star added to the chorus of female voices speaking out about the sexual harassment scandal surrounding Weinstein, who produced or distributed many of Yeoh’s films and TV shows. “Any man who treats women with such disrespect and contempt should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law,” said Yeoh, who stars in the new TV series “Star Trek: Discovery.” “I knew he was a bully and not always honorable. I wasn’t exposed to this side of him, otherwise he would have experienced the full effect of years of martial arts training,” she said, without elaborating.

    The Weinstein Co. was one of the producers of last year’s “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny,” a sequel in which Yeoh reprised her role from the original blockbuster martial arts film. The company also produced the Netflix series “Marco Polo,” a period epic in which Yeoh had a role. Weinstein’s previous company, Miramax, distributed Yeoh’s earlier films. He was also a big donor to amfAR, an AIDS charity for which Yeoh, 55, is an ambassador.

    Since allegations of Weinstein sexually harassing women over decades emerged in reports by The New York Times and The New Yorker, more than three dozen women have publicly accused him of abuse. Weinstein has also been fired by his movie company and been expelled from prestigious Hollywood groups, including the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences — the home of the Oscars.

     Ziyi Zhang, who also starred in “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” said Weinstein often tried to work with her, but she refused. Weinstein tried to recruit her for the “Crouching Tiger” sequel by promising her an Oscar, she said. The fallen mogul never sexually harassed her, her representative confirmed to AP. “I feel lucky to have escaped working with Harvey Weinstein, even though it wasn’t from lack of trying on his part,” Zhang said in a statement. “The deals he offered were always balanced in his favor and I couldn’t accept them. “Even though an Oscar is what every actor dream of but, I didn’t feel right that it should become something to be used in a trade,” the actress said.

    , defendants Lai Man-hon, 30, and Chan Tsz-ming, 28, forced the victim – a 25 year-old woman – to strip down and take a bath while they filmed her, saying that complying would reduce the amount she owed. Both Lai and Chan had pleaded guilty to the crimes in District Court earlier.

     reported that the victim borrowed a casino loan of about HK$37,000 (US$4,740) when she went to the gambling hub of Macau last year. She continued to gamble, and had 20 days to repay HK$60,000 (US$7,683). The website reported that when she returned to Hong Kong the following day, the two defendants were waiting for her at the pier and told her she owed HK$180,000 (about US$23,000). The woman insisted she only owed HK$60,000, but this was ignored by the two men, who took her to a hotel room where they filmed and took the nude photographs of her.

    Ada Choi finally turned up to promote "Oh My Grad" series on 10 October but the male lead, Roger Kwok was absent due to sickness and Wong Cho Lam was away for another job. Ada hopes Roger will have a speedy recovery and all cast team members have good results. Asking about her repeated absence in recent promotion events, Ada said:  This is because I need to work in overseas a lot, and perhaps they know I am around and they can take a rest today. Besides, I did my best to promote it before airing and definitely give my full efforts as I am the female lead."

    When mentioning about her having a hoarse voice in the series, Ada expressed her gratitude towards her good friend, Jonathan Chik. She  needed to undergo a throat surgery when filming "The Gem of Life"  series at that time and her voice becomes sore due to insufficient rest. She admitted that she had some reflections after filming the series: "The kids are mature nowadays, a male kid has already shown his love for my elder daughter when studying primary 1. He said he likes her very much and wants to kiss her lips. I only encounter this when studying in primary 3. I told my daughter to put a cross sign and kick the opposite party if it happens again. No one is allowed to touch any of her body part, not even her shoulder except from her own family. She needs to know how to protect herself . Anyway, it is dangerous that she is as pretty as me."

    Ada added that her husband, Max Zhang is more paranoid than her. He tells my daughter to reject the opposite sex even on video cam. He is the only man who is allowed to dote on her.

    After breaking the news, Etta, who lives in Hong Kong, admitted she was 'speechless' at how much support she has received after growing up with a lot of 'negativity and close mindedness' throughout her life. She wrote: 'I am in awe at the amount of support and love poured my way. I am speechless at how followers went to my Girlfriend @andiautumn and my account to show us both so much positivity. People all over the world have been rooting us on as Hong Kong media continues to mock. I've grown up in a world of negativity and close mindedness but I am at that point where I realise that I can use my experience to tell my truths and help others just like me. Thankfully I've grown since the days I was powerless and uncertain what the world has for me. Thank you for the enormous outpour of love and acceptance (sic)'

    Andi publicly declared her love for Etta and claimed the pair have suffered 'discrimination' from their family and friends about their relationship. She wrote: 'I've never met anyone like @stolenmilktea . She has given me a chance to fully express the running thoughts in my head. No judgements, just understanding. 'Everything was against us. We've been pushed down again and again but its worth it knowing we will get through it together, side by side. skip past all of the difficulties we've had this year, we are finally heading in the right direction, we have a path. We've encountered a lot of discrimination from family, friends, and the Hong Kong society. 

    'We are living in such an international city and yet so many people have their minds closed off. But none of it matters when I know every morning your going to be next to me. I love you. (sic)'

    Etta's mother is Elaine Ng Yi-Lei, a former Miss Asia who had a brief fling with martial arts expert Jackie in the late 90s. In 2015, the teenager confirmed she is estranged from the movie star and doesn't feel as though he is her father. She said: 'He is not my dad. I have no feelings for him. He is my biological father but he is not in my life. 'He never existed in my life. I will never regard him as a father. 'I would not say that he is my dad. I would say, 'Oh, Jackie Chan, an actor'.' Jackie also has a son, Jaycee, 34, with wife Joan Lin, who he married in 1982.
