Cheung's Glad She Waited 21 Years For Hollywood

Hong Kong actress MAGGIE CHEUNG is glad Hollywood discovered her 21 years into her movie career - because she would never have approached American studio bosses herself.

The HERO star, 40, prefers being approached by US film moguls than travelling to America and begging them for work - so was thrilled when she was asked to make her US debut in 1999 movie AUGUSTIN, KING OF KUNG-FU.

She says, "It doesn't bother me. I'm glad I waited for them to know who I am, rather than me coming to them.

"Ten years ago, if I'd really, really tried here, and come and met everybody and been really aggressive and not shy, I think I could have landed one or two American films.

"But now people are knocking on my door. I prefer it that way."
