Legendary actor from Hong Kong’s golden era in cinema, , with a of S$981 million, has promised to donate his whole fortune to charity when he passes away. He is known to live a very simple and frugal life despite his vast wealth.

Chow Yun Fat is well-recognized for his roles in , , Tiger on Beat, and more recently, The Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End plus so many more.

Amidst his highly successful scenes that have played in international cinemas and televisions, the multimillionaire can also be seen riding public transportation and lining up in a ticket booth to purchase his own tickets for a movie. According to his Singaporean wife, Jasmine Tan, he loves eating at street stalls, wearing simple clothes and replacing his phone only when it dies without the need to stay up to date with the latest technological advancements.

The actor has recently told South Korea’s Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) in an interview that “money isn’t something you possess forever. When you’re gone one day, you have to leave it to others to use it.” He also said, “You can’t bring the money in your bank account with you after you die.” The actor has never forgotten his roots coming from a poor family in Lamma Island and he still finds savoury Chinese turnips with rice to be very enjoyable. He does not even know just how much his is.

Meanwhile, other netizens are also urging more rich people to follow suit. Maybe more Hollywood and Asian actors should sign up to The Giving Pledge which was originally started by Bill Gates and Warren Buffet as a medium for the donations of the world’s richest people.
