HKCinemagic: You worked with a lot of actor, Chow Yun Fat, Andy Lau, Tony Leung Ka Fai... Which one did you get on well the most and work the best with on a comedy?
Wing Jing: Actually, I worked with everyone. Stephen Chow understands me the most. We know each others too well. So at the end of the day, we cannot work together.

[Ed.: Wong and Chow collaborated on 14 films, such as: God of Gamblers 2, Fight back to School, Royal Tramp, Sixty Million Dollar Man, Forbidden City Cop]

Kung Fu Hustle
HKCinemagic: What do you think of Chow’s latest films?
Wong Jing : I liked Shaolin Soccer better. For Kung Fu Hustle, up to the first sixty minutes and the last 10 minutes were lousy.
HKCinemagic: Before Chow was used to release a film a month, now it is one every three years.
Wong Jing : Pressure. That’s why I gave up climbing higher and higher. That is what Chow is doing, he wants to go higher and higher, but I gave up already. It is torture; you cannot get any pleasure or happiness from the movie. Maybe you can make some money but I can make 10 films in three years. And he can only do one.
HKCinemagic: Do you think he has another plan, like going to Hollywood or being internationally recognized?

Wong Jing: I think it is meaningless. I prefer to do things happily; I don’t want to get too much pressure on me. I am so happy everyday. I don’t want to mess with my brain. I don’t want to stress. Actually Chow is so much younger than me and he got so much more grey hair. I think I am seven or eight years older than him and he looks as old as me! [Ed.: Wong is 52 and Chow is 45]

Simon Yam in Future Cops
HKCinemagic: Actor Simon Yam said he really loves working with you as it is always relaxed on the set.
Wong Jing: I never give any pressure to the actors and the crew. I just want everyone to enjoy the working period. And be happy everyday. No matter how the film scores, we all have some good time.
HKCinemagic: You are in the industry for like three decades now. How can you assess your career?
Wong Jing: 33 years. There were a lot of things that I didn’t like, but I tried not to touch those things. I just try to stay in things I like. That’s what I am doing. I think of the negative sides, but never pay too much attention to them.
