Celebrity couple ’fesses up to financial woes

Actress Chorn Chanleakena and her husband, actor Yuthara Chhany, have made a shocking confession about their financial troubles after the actress’s mother stated that the couple were unable to afford a house even after 20 years of work.

Chhany humbly accepted the truth. “I’m not upset with what my mother-in-law said. Speaking the truth won’t hurt our reputation or popularity.

It tells the public that my wife and I are truly artists. We don’t use our stardom to do disrespectful things to gain a big house or a luxurious car,” the actor, who met his wife on set in 1996, said.
