The marriage of Malaysian actress Angelica Lee and Hong Kong director Oxide Pang was nearly derailed earlier this year after Pang was caught cheating with starlet Liddy Li.
However, Lee has since indicated she has forgiven Pang for the transgression, which to many, showed super-human strength and wisdom, reported Hong Kong news and entertainment site, On.cc.
In a recorded interview with the Hong Kong publication, Lee explained why she forgave him. She said:"In acting, you have to learn to step out of the character. In life it's the same, you must learn how to let go."
She revealed that she has been studying Buddhism for the past six years, and it has broadened her mind and calmed her.
Said Lee: "I feel blessed because at whichever point in my life, I know there are many people who love me, like my family and friends. Life has its ups and downs, trials and tribulations, but if you can view obstacles as opportunities, you will appreciate every moment. Everything is good, I have been fortunate in life, whatever I want to do I have done."
She says she is not stubborn when it comes to love, and does not follow pre-defined notions on how to express love. "I will use all my heart to love and to forgive," said Lee.
When asked if it hurts more to be betrayed by someone she loves, she replied: "You feel hurt because you have expectations, but loving someone means you shouldn't have any expectations. If you have a generosity of heart you won't feel like you have been hurt."
"I think I am quite a strong person, I am someone who will usually find a way out of any situation quickly, and try to understand the issue on a deeper level."
"I believe everyone around me are my personal 'Buddhas', helping me become a better person. So no matter what someone does to me, I see it as a test, and for me to do my homework."
"A couple will definitely encounter obstacles, but to stay together, we need to use our love to grow, to support each other through thick and thin."
