Looking at Allan Wu, you would not have thought that he appeared on the first issue of Men’s Health Singapore back in 2003. The US-born Chinese actor-host flaunts the same youthful energy and charm as before, not to mention a better physique and full head of hair.
As he turns 46 this year, many things have changed over the years for Wu, but many have also stayed the same. Previously a model with Ford Models in the US, he reveals that it was always an aspiration of his to one day appear on the cover of Men’s Health.
“For me, honestly, I was over the moon. I was so excited, so proud and so honoured,” he recalled about the opportunity. “I knew the odds of doing that in the US would be low, because one, I was Asian, and also it was just very, very difficult.
“It is fantastic to be able to be on the cover again now, and as honoured, and as touched, and as privileged as I felt 15 years ago, I feel even more honoured now to be back on the cover for Men’s Health in Singapore.”
