Julian Cheung admits he suffers from claustrophobia

HONG KONG - While promoting his new movie Natural Born Lovers in Hong Kong recently, actor Julian Cheung admitted he has been suffering from claustrophobia since lying in a coffin for a scene in his TV series The Legend Of Lu Xiao Feng in 2007.

The 41-year-old said he's fine inside airplanes and lifts, and feels uncomfortable only when he cannot move in a confined space.

He added: "I went to a flower market with my family last year. Although it was at a big open space, there were a lot of people and I couldn't move in the crowd.

"My heartbeat raced and I felt uncomfortable. I grabbed my wife (actress Anita Yuen) and son and searched for an exit to flee."
