Malaysia’s Oscar-winning actress Michelle Yeoh paid Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim a visit earlier today, bringing her prized award with her to Perdana Putra.


In a Facebook post, Anwar said Yeoh recounted the joys and pains she had to go through before reaching the pinnacle envied by all actors and actresses – winning an Oscar.

“She also shared that her success story of winning an Oscar was a meaningful feat, not just for herself, but for her family and Malaysians, too.


“Her achievement has lifted Malaysia’s name to a global stage,” said Anwar. “I wish her all the best. May she continue to achieve success!”

Photos shared by the Prime Minister’s Office showed Yeoh, dressed in smart casual attire, holding the golden Oscar statuette.

A video of the meeting was also shared on Twitter, showing Anwar exchanging pleasantries with Yeoh.


“Thank you for bringing this (Oscar trophy),” Anwar said while admiring the statuette.
