Edison Chen not ready for lead roles after scandal

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - Hong Kong actor-singer Edison Chen says he is not yet ready for a high profile return to show business after a sex scandal last year that shocked the Chinese entertainment industry.

"I still don't know if I am comfortable with that. Honestly, I don't know if people are comfortable with me doing that," The Sunday Star quoted him as saying during a visit to Kuala Lumpur on Saturday.

Last year, photos of Chen having sex with female Hong Kong stars were widely circulated on the Internet. A Hong Kong computer technician was sentenced to more than eight months in jail in May for stealing the photos from Chen's laptop during repairs.

Chen said he's still producing some films and albums for some artists.

"I'm there but not really there. Maybe I'm there in the background instead of being in the front now ... but at this point I love my job," the 28-year-old Chinese-Canadian said at the launch of his first Juice streetwear store, which he co-owns, outside of Hong Kong.

Chen appeared in the 2002 hit Hong Kong police thriller "Infernal Affairs" and in the 2006 horror movie "The Grudge 2." He had a cameo in the Hollywood blockbuster "The Dark Knight" and plays a young police officer in "The Sniper," filmed before the scandal but released this year.

I thought he said he would never step into the entertainment industry ever again.
