Veteran Hong Kong actor-singer Andy Lau has denied rumours that he is gay.

Asked by an interviewer on Hong Kong's TVB station on whether he is a homosexual, he said: "I'm not, but if you say I am, I don't think it's a bad thing. Maybe my attitude has caused misunderstanding. I've never pronounced loudly I'm not gay, and I don't think there's the need to do so."

Lau, 44, said he has gay friends, in the interview carried in the Ming Pao Weekly magazine on Sunday after it was aired on Saturday.

Asked about experiences with gays showing romantic interest in him, he said: "It's very direct. They're a frank crowd."

He is known as a fierce Chinese nationalist and in the interview, he took issue with people who complain that he performs frequently in the traditional Chinese robe. "Some people say, 'He's singing in cheongsam again?' I think it's very annoying, " he said.

"What's wrong with cheongsam? I don't know if the people who say that are Chinese."
