‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Star Michelle Yeoh Reveals That She Will Wear A Significant Piece From The Film To The Golden Globes

With all the talk surrounding the Golden Globe Awards, many are wondering what all the celebrities will be wearing. In case you were wondering, Michelle Yeoh will not only be at the Golden Globes but she will be wearing ‘the ring’ from the movie Crazy Rich Asians.

Yes, she will be sporting the exceptional diamond and emerald ring her character Eleanor wore in the movie.

The ring is a symbol of everything Eleanor has worked for, as well as her pride. It is the unattainable status the main character, Rachel strives for in pleasing her boyfriend’s family.

And it is perfectly suited to the elegant Michelle Yeoh.

Speaking on wearing the ring to the awards event, Yeoh said,

“I think I have to, because the ring is so much a character in the film. What a perfect thing! I must. I will absolutely do that.”

While it might seem like pure promotion for Yeoh to wear the ring to the premiere of the movie, it actually belongs to her. She wasn’t a fan of the original prop ring and offered one from her collection instead.

And how could you say no to Michelle Yeoh?

Others online are more surprised that she wasn’t nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance. While her character fulfills an antagonistic role, it is one filled with nuance and power, brought by Yeoh’s acting.

Who in their right mind wouldn’t nominate her?


Crazy Rich Asians was released earlier this year and tells the story of Rachel, played by Constance Wu learning her boyfriend comes from a rich family. Throughout the film, she tries to win the approval of his mother, Eleanor played by Michelle Yeoh. The film itself is up for a Golden Globe in Best Motion Picture-Musical or Comedy category, and Wu is nominated for Best Actress in a Motion Picture-Comedy or Musical.
