-   Sing more and you get better, Fight more and you get better ... But acting is hard.

-   "In any movie you showed your handsome face, maybe stood there in a smart pose, and that's it, that was enough. The hard part was already done." (on his previous acting roles)

-   "The first time I met him, he just showed me his Rolex. He says 'Look at it' then I look at it. Then he told me 'Work hard, and you are going to have it!" (on meeting his idol, 'Chow Yun-Fat', for the first time)
