During the cover interview with People, Michelle Yeoh talked about friendship with Jamie and its inception. She said, “We fell in love on the first email. She was like, ‘Let’s ditch the directors of the movie, the Daniels, and run away!’ I was like, ‘A woman after my own heart.’ When you meet someone and have that connection, it’s not the length of time you’ve known them. A friendship became a very precious relationship.”
The two text one another first thing in the morning. About the messages, the ‘Shang-chi’ actress said, “She wakes up very early and I’m an early bird as well, so we end up texting each other. She’s rooting for me. Jamie Lee is one of the most generous in spirit that I have ever met. She’s always giving.”
The actress continued, “She’s always sending me something and texting ‘Did you get it, bae?’ She’s always sharing. And yet at the same time, she’s friggin’ Hollywood royalty — but she is nurturing.”
