The Star in Malaysia reported that Hong Kong actress Cherie Chung, known as the "Marilyn Monroe" of the Hong Kong entertainment industry, is ready to return to the big screen.
Chung had retired from the entertainment scene after she married businessman Michael Chu in 1991.
Chu died in 2007.
"There were a lot of job offers then. But I'm thinking of getting back since everyone thinks I'm not serious about my career," she joked.
