Chow Yun Fat, Huang Xiao Ming, Francis Ng, Sammo Hung, Lau Wai Keung and Wong Jing attended the press conference of new film The Last Tycoon (大上海). Chow appeared dressed like the King of Gambler, and Huang later asked for his apprenticeship live on the spot. Chow joked it should be him asking Huang for apprenticeship, "He's been teaching me the correct Mandarin pronunciations. The director told him not to learn acting from me, rather he should learn from Andy Lau, that's how we get good movies. If he learns from me, it won't be good." Chow gave the seat to Huang: "He's the big brother, I'm the little brother." But Huang didn't dare to take the seat.
Huang was happy to have Chow as his mentor, he said: "There will be someone watching over me from now on." Chow joked: "You're a huge superstar and an adult, how can I look after you? I can only take care of Baby. But, I like handsome men too, you're my Handsome Baby and that is AngelaBaby!" Chow joked he and Huang are sharing a role, so he'll give half of his salary to Huang. Initially he wanted to give him an additional 30%, but Mrs. Chow took it back. He said: "I pointed out to Huang that he can relax a little in his performance, no need to be so Chok. Too handsome. His acting is especially good this time, this year the Best Actor award is his."
Chow expressed Sammo produced Hong Kong 1984 (等待黎明) in the 80s, and it was him that give him the first opportunity. That year, the film brought him the honor of becoming the Golden Horse Film King. Sammo laughed: "This collaboration with Chow wasn't enough, I hope we'll collaborate again, but no bed scenes." Chow joked: "If there are any bed scenes, you'll crush me! Brother, I'm really skinny now!" Then Chow indirectly bashed Francis: "I have to see what moves Francis is using, but facing an actor of this type, I'm feel joy and excitement because I can't predict the next step he'll take in his acting." Francis said timidly: "I'm frequently late, thank you Fat Gor for your toleration."
