Pretty boy performer Fei Xiang grows up


It is hard to be an ageing heartthrob, but Taiwanese-American performer Fei Xiang is not clinging desperately to his glory days by going under the knife.

In a telephone interview with Life! from Shanghai, the 52-year-old bachelor says in American-accented English: "I am a first-hand witness to people ageing, and some are not ageing so gracefully. You can do one or two procedures, but the problem is, some people don't know when to stop.

"I look at it this way: You can either look your age or look weird. But looking young is not an option."

Asked if he has had any help, such some nip and tuck or Botox injections, he says: "Well, a little bit of this and that. But to me, that's like putting on a nice suit."
