4 Sep – Hiromi Wada continues to defend boyfriend Joe Lam, who sparked anger among netizens recently for saying that the actress is prettier than his ex-girlfriend and beloved beauty queen Louisa Mak.
As reported on Mingpao, the actress who spoke to the media following her recent Instagram post defending Joe, laughed when asked about the whole issue, saying that Joe often tells her that she is the most beautiful compared to his previous girlfriends.
"I think he said that to every girlfriend," she added light-heartedly.
Said Hiromi, it was natural for her boyfriend to stand up and fight back for her to give her a sense of security and confidence, after tabloids compared her to Louisa when they made an appearance at the Miss Hong Kong 2020 pageant - Louisa as a guest judge and Hiromi as a member of the audience - last weekend.
"In the beginning, they compared my education [to Louisa's], and of course, I could never compete with that," she said, referring to Louisa's Cambridge University education. "But this time, they called me plain and compared our looks. It was outrageous."
The actress said that she didn't dress up too much during the pageant as she was not involved at all except as an audience, and that there was no reason for her to dress glamorously for it.
Asked if she has any concerns over Joe's tendency to create negative news for himself and for her, Hiromi stated that the former lawyer is a smart person who understands full well the reaction of the outside world.
"Sometimes he would say to me, 'I'm so happy that a lot of people reacted!'. He is playing this game better than me even though I am the one working in showbiz," she said.
