Scandal always seems more powerful than praise and repute. As long as an individual is embroiled in an embarrassing scandal, their reputation will be tarnished regardless of their previous behavior.
However, many entertainers and singers now fabricate their own scandals to raise their level of recognition and media.
The following ten entertainers have all been involved in nude photo scandals. Attitudes and reactions from the public have differed in each case, bringing disparate results.
Carina Lau (刘嘉玲)
Carina Lau, born on December 8th, 1965, is a famous Hong Kong actress from the 1980s. In 2002, Hong Kong-based East Week magazine ran a picture in its Oct. 30th issue of a female Hong Kong actress in an obvious state of distress and undress. Later, Carina Lau admitted that the female actress was her, and the photo was taken 12 years ago when Lau was kidnapped. After the scandal, outraged celebrities like Jackie Chan staged a public protest about the photo, with Lau bravely posing in front of the group. Eventually the magazine was shut down and the nude photo incident won Lau tremendous support. In July 2008, Carina Lau and actor Tony Leung got married after 19 years of love of support.
