Hong Kong superstar Andy Lau was finally discharged from hospital last week, two months after a horse-riding accident. “I’ve returned home,” Lau announced on his official Web site, Andy World Club. “Trust me!!” he added, “I’ll be able to stand up by myself very soon!”

The 55-year-old Lau is one of Hong Kong’s “four heavenly kings of pop.” He was badly injured in January when he was thrown off a horse during a TV commercial shoot in Thailand. The accident left him with pelvic bone fractures and tendon injuries.

The accident showed fans the difficult side of stardom. Supermodel Lin Chi-ling and actor William Feng were also injured when they were thrown off a horse when working. Action movie star Jacky Chan is no stranger to injuries, either. And Selina Jen of pop group “S.H.E” suffered serious burns during a TV drama shoot.
