11th September 2023 – (Hong Kong) Amy Yip, the renowned Hong Kong film star known for her voluptuous figure, has made a surprising comeback after disappearing from the entertainment scene for nearly 30 years. The 57-year-old actress, often referred to as the “Busty Beauty,” attended a public event recently, capturing everyone’s attention once again.
Yip, famous for her roles in Category III films such as “Sex and Zen” and “Erotic Ghost Story,” had been dating spinal neurosurgeon Dr. Sammy Sek Chiu Lui before gradually fading out of the spotlight. She rarely made public appearances during her hiatus, making her recent presence all the more remarkable.
At a recent dinner hosted by Miss Hong Kong 1982 2nd runner-up Isabella Kau Hung Ping, Yip stole the limelight with her stunning physique. Wearing a one-shoulder flesh-toned top, her slender arms were a stark contrast to her previous appearances. Although she seemed to have shed some pounds since her last public outing, her ample bosom remained as prominent as ever. Netizens couldn’t help but marvel at how Yip defied the principles of “ergonomics” with her body, maintaining a flawless figure even at the age of 60.
Amy Yip, born on July 10, 1966, rose to fame as one of the leading sex symbols of Hong Kong cinema in the late 1980s and early 1990s. She gained popularity for her roles in various television series before achieving a breakthrough with the 1990 film “Erotic Ghost Story.” Her iconic large breasts made her highly sought after for nude scenes, although she never appeared fully naked on screen. Yip’s clever use of camera angles, revealing only the side of her breast, became known as the “Yip tease.” However, she did expose her buttocks in some scenes, such as in “Erotic Ghost Story.”
Yip retired from acting in 1997, expressing regret that her filmography lacked memorable roles despite the success of her movies. One notable exception was her performance in the 1991 film “Queen of the Underworld,” where she portrayed Sister Har, a woman who rose from the depths of society to become a celebrated figure in the nightlife of 1960s and 1970s Hong Kong.
In her personal life, Yip had a long-term relationship with orthopedic surgeon Dr. Sammy Sek Chiu Lui, whom she met in 1992. Over the years, rumors circulated about their marriage and Yip being pregnant. However, in a 2006 interview, Yip clarified that they were in a stable relationship of over 15 years and had no plans for marriage or children. She focused on her food and beverage businesses in Hong Kong and Macau, enjoying her carefree lifestyle.
Although Yip’s return to the film industry has been speculated upon, she firmly rejected the idea, stating that she was content with her current life and had no desire to return to the demanding schedules and extensive travel associated with filming. She emphasized her satisfaction with not relying on exposing her breasts to earn a living.
In May 2018, a book detailing Yip’s career in movies and television was released in English. Tragically, her boyfriend, Dr. Lui, passed away from a heart attack during a flight to the United States in November 2018.
