Tony Leung Trusts Carina Lau Did Not Cheat
Tony Leung Chiu Wai and Carina Lau Ka Ling have been dating for 17 years. Earlier, rumors spread that Carina was involved with wealthy Taiwanese merchant, Guo Taiming.
Holding hands, Carina attended a charity ball and family wedding with Mr. Guo. Afterwards, she flew back to Hong Kong on Mr. Guo's private jet and accompanied him on a tour of Hainan Island as well.
Allegedly, Tony was dissatisfied with Carina's high profile exposure with Mr. Guo. To pacify Tony, Carina booked an early skiing trip with him to Hokkaido earlier.
Appearing at the Hong Kong Film Expo yesterday, Tony was in good spirits and responded to Carina and Mr. Guo's rumors, "Carina has already responded accordingly to the press's questions. But I can tell you with complete confidence that I trust Carina entirely."
Reporters were quite respectful towards Tony and did not press the issue further. However, they asked if Mr. Guo asked Tony to film a movie, would Tony accept? "I will not answer any hypothetical questions raised." Tony requested reporters to change the topic.
Carina's Response to Rumors with Mr. Guo
Carina had explained earlier, "Mr. Guo is my friend. The press printed photos of Mr. Guo's hand on my thigh, but the effect was a result of the camera angle. There is no need to complicate matters further."
"Each time I am spotted with a male friend, everyone thinks there is romantic involvement. But they are just normal networking and social events. There is no need to hide anything. I don't consider them to be anything more. Tony never questioned me about them either."
Tony has been nominated for the Best Actor Award for his role in "Confessions of Pain" in 2007's Hong Kong Film Awards. He is happy that he has been nominated and whether he wins the award will be dependent on luck.
Tony's movie, "Infernal Affairs" was remade by Hollywood into "The Departed," starring Leonardo Di Caprio, and won numerous Oscar Awards.
"Confessions of Pain" has also been picked up by Hollywood for a remake. Tony is proud that Hong Kong movie scripts have international recognition, proving that there is much talent in the Hong Kong film industry.

HONG KONG - Actor Tony Leung Chiu Wai has revealed why he is finally marrying his girlfriend Carina Lau, saying they made the decision because of her father's death.
Hong Kong's most closely watched showbiz couple have been together for 19 years before he surprised everyone in February by saying that they would marry this year.
WAKE-UP CALL: On-off lovers Tony Leung and Carina Lau will finally get married this year after the death of Lau's father last year prompted the couple to want to speed things up.
He finally said why in a recent TV interview in Shanghai, in which he also gave a rare peek at his relationship with Lau.
'Why are we getting married this year? Possibly it's because Carina's father died last year,' Apple Daily quoted him as telling Chinese TV host Cao Kefan. 'She felt that while our families are around, we should let them witness what they ought to witness.'
Leung also revealed what made them tick as a couple. 'I'm more of a loner and quieter, with few friends.
'We're well-balanced as she's cheerful and has many friends. If you're alone for too long, you'd hope for some excitement but not too much.
'But after a while, when there's a meeting with many friends, I will feel happy. And it's fun.'
Asked if Lau regards him as her source of strength, he said: 'She looks strong but is inwardly weak.
'I am both strong outside and inside. We match. So when she feels confused about things and is perplexed, I will tell her not to worry.'
Asked how they sort out any squabbles, he revealed what may be the secret to their long-lasting relationship.
'I will avoid confrontation... calm down a bit and view the issue objectively. Life's too short to fret over things.'

FOR 18 long years, Hong Kong actress Carina Lau kept mum about her humiliating ordeal at the hands of triad members.But now, with her impending marriage to long-time actor boyfriend Tony Leung, Carina, 43, has finally broken her silence.Back in April 1990, the budding actress was bundled off into a car, blindfolded and forcibly photographed nude by triad members.
The incident came to light years later, in 2002, reported The New Paper on Sunday.That was when Hong Kong's East Week magazine published a topless photograph of her being held against her will on its front cover.While her eyes were masked, speculation was rampant that the actress involved was Carina.She kept mum for a few weeks after its publication and later admitted she was indeed the actress in the photographs.
Recounting the nightmare
In her first candid interview since the photos were leaked, she told Hong Kong newspaper Nanfang Doushibao that she had stepped on some triad members' toes by refusing to act in a movie that they were involved with.
At the time, there was a lot of triad involvement and investment in the Hong Kong film industry, she said.'Because I didn't agree to filming the movie, they decide to punish me by doing this', she added.TNP said on the morning of April 25, 1990, she was driving home when she realised that another car was tailing her.After she turned into a carpark, a number of big sized men opened her door and grabbed from the car.
'They dragged me into car and covered both my eyes,' recounted Carina.
'I was terrified - I thought they were going to kill me and dump my body in a deserted field.'
Not hating the men that did this to her
Even though the men made her pose nude, she insisted that they was not taken advantage of.
'I don't hate those four men that held me. They were just following orders. They never molested me, so I'm grateful to them for that.'Carina was released about two hours later. She made a police report, but the culprits were never caught.

HONG KONG - Actors Tony Leung Chiu Wai and Carina Lau have kept the tabloids guessing where and when they will marry: Would it be Hong Kong, Bali or Phuket, this month or in October?
Now Sing Tao Daily, quoting a 'reliable source', reports that the couple will tie the knot in the reclusive Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan next Monday.
They chose Bhutan to keep their big day paparazzi-free, says the report. The kingdom limits tourism and it is not easy to apply for visas.
According to the newspaper, 80 guests, including singers Faye Wong, Stella Chang and Lui Fong and actor Ng Ting Yip, will go on the all-expenses-paid trip that will cost the couple at least HK$3 million (S$521,000).
Lui and Ng are two of about 10 friends invited by Leung, says the report. The rest of the guests are Lau's friends.
Travelling from China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, everyone will gather in Bangkok on Saturday and fly to Bhutan the following day, says the report.
The White Dragon King - the Chinese-Thai soothsayer to stars such as Jackie Chan, Andy Lau and Leung - will attend the wedding too.
Apparently, the couple have kept the wedding location so secret, not even their guests know it. They have just been told the departure date and asked to send photocopies of their passports for their visa applications.
The report says Lau got visas for the guests with the help of billionaire Cheng Yu Tung, who is the honorary consul of Bhutan to Hong Kong.
In an interview published last Friday in China's Nanfang Daily, Lau said she would have a small wedding overseas.
She was quoted as telling writer Eunice Lam: 'We will do it when we are travelling. Wai Chai's mother and my mother haven't requested a wedding banquet. However, we must invite some old friends.'
Wai Chai is Leung's nickname.
Lau said that besides close friend Wong, she would also invite long-time colleagues such as directors Wong Kar Wai and Tony Au and production designer William Chang.

Was Carina Lau's kidnapping by HK triads all a hoax?
IS HONG Kong actress Carina Lau's story about getting kidnapped by triad members a hoax?
That is the buzz in the Chinese entertainment media scene at the moment.
Even though the incident took place 18 years ago, the story is still generating a cauldron of emotions, ranging from sympathy to scepticism.
Lau had told novelist Eunice Lam about her run-in with triad members and that story was published last Friday in Chinese paper Nanfang Daily.
The actress spoke about her traumatic experience in April 1990, when she was kidnapped by triad members and photographed naked after she refused to act in amovie the triad was involved in.
In the interview, Lau, 42, said she was abducted as she was driving to actor Michael Miu Kiu Wai's house. She was forced to strip and was photographed nude before being released several hours later unhurt.
In 2002, pictures taken during the incident were leaked and one was published on the cover of a magazine, causing a sensation in Hong Kong's showbiz scene.
Lau later ended up shooting a film for free for her abductors.
But for detractors, the story seems a little dubious.
First, it came just before her wedding to long-time boyfriend Tony Leung, 46, in October - at a time when one would think Lau would not want any negative press to surround her.
Lau was also reportedly supposed to issue an official statement confirming all the facts in Ms Lam's story. That statement never arrived.
When contacted by the media, Lau's personal assistant confirmed that Lau had indeed been interviewed by Ms Lam, but could not comment as she had not been paying attention to the discussion.
Lau's management company, Project House Artist Management, said that they had not heard from Lau about releasing a statement.
Still, there are many showbiz veterans backing Lau up, applauding her decision to tell her side of the story.
Actress Sandra Ng, who was invited to Miu's house the night of Lau's kidnapping, says that every word is true.
"She is the daring woman of the century," said Ng, applauding Lau's decision to spill the beans.
"The fact that Lau is speaking up about the kidnapping proves she can now let go."
Actor Eric Tsang said: "She chose to reveal all before her wedding. That proves the hurt she suffered from the ordeal has finally been released."
As for news on her wedding, director Wong Kar-Wai is said to be acting as "chief curator" for the event, the Oriental Morning Post reported yesterday.
Leung also reportedly wanted to invite actress Maggie Cheung, but Lau, said to be in charge of most of the wedding details, is rumoured to have struck her off the list.
Leung and Cheung reportedly got very close in 1999 when they were shooting In The Mood For Love and again in 2001 when shooting Hero.

Bhutan’s Prince helps Carina Lau and Tony Leung prepare for their Wedding
Tony Leung and Carina Lau have chosen to have their wedding in Bhutan which is a less well known country. Earlier Eric Tsang had arranged for Bhutan’s prince and the couple to have dinner together. There is a high chance that the royal member will attend their wedding.
The couple have chosen Bhutan as the destination for their wedding, as it is peaceful. The Bhuntan Prince will be helping them prepare for the wedding including the issuing of guests visa’s.
Last night, during an interview with TVB, Nat Chan suddenly exposed that Eric Tsang invited the Bhutan prince for dinner and Carina Lau was a guest of honour. The reporter phoned Eric to ask for more details. He admitted and said “Yes it was me who introduced them because after I knew they decided to get married in Bhutan, I immediately arranged for the Bhutan prince to have dinner with them. The prince often comes to Hong Kong and I have known him for many years. When the prince got married he also invited me to his wedding. “ Asked Eric whether the Bhutan prince will attend the wedding? He did not admit but did not deny “I do not want to say too much about their wedding, yet I shouldn’t say too much. “ It is reported that the Bhutan Prince will be attending their wedding.
Eric Tsang Too Busy cannot attend
The couple’s wedding will be held at Bhutan Uma Paro hotel. Eric says “This hotel belongs to the Bhutan prince. Too bad that I am too busy and cannot attend their wedding or help them prepare. “ ( By introducing them to Bhutan’s prince is their biggest gift) “Haha, yes that’s right.” But Eric stated he will no longer mention about their wedding and quickly hung up.
Having the Bhutan prince help prepare for their wedding, no wonder the couple appeared to be more relaxed. They arrived in Thailand last night. After having a shark fins meal, they headed back to the hotel to rest. Afterwards, at 3am they got the next flight to Bhutan. Not only have they planned to have a low profile wedding but also avoiding the paparazzi’s as much as they can.
False Move to avoid the paparazzi’s
At 3am, the paparazzi’s were waiting outside the hotel. At this time the hotel arranged a large group of Security to guard the hotel. Even the local police were involved and guarded the place by forming a line. They put up ropes to bar the paparazzi’s from crossing the area. But actually all this was a false move, because after the security removed the ropes, the couple had already left the hotel by the back door.
The reporters rushed to the Thailand airport and caught the couple there. The couple who were not able to avoid the paparazzi’s accepted taking pictures and all the questions were handled by Carina. (Asked how the layout of the wedding would be? ) “That will be arranged by Cheung Suk Ping. Most important is that it's beautiful. “ (Why did you choose Bhutan? ) “A Buddhist country, Serious and peaceful. “ (Did you order the Wedding cake in Thailand?) “The cake was chosen by me, it’s very pretty.” (When you arrive at Bhutan, what will you prepare first?) “The furnishings.” (Is the wedding going to be held on the 21st of July?) “Almost”.
Earlier, Carina went to Roger Vivier’s store and brought a pair of high heel shoes, that will be worn on the wedding day. They will be sent by air to them in Bhutan. Roger Vivier was a French fashion designer who's best known creation was for the Stiletto heels.

Not much is known about the outfits that the couple will be wearing on their special day, except that the 46-year-old groom's suit is believed to have been designed by Tom Ford, who is American actor Brad Pitt's favourite designer.
And the wedding shoes for Lau are designed by Frenchman Roger Vivier and cost as much as HK$8,800 (S$1,500).

Tony Leung Hasn't got enough firepower to have children, will put it on hold
Tony Leung and Carina Lau have ended their Bhutan and India journey and returned to Hong Kong. Reporters and passers-by surrounded the couple at the airport. As to whether they will invite Maggie Cheung Man Yuk for dinner, Tony appeared to not want to talk about it. Asked about his plans in having children, he jokes "I haven't had time to think about it recently, I have to concentrate on "Firepower" for the next 6 months to prepare for my next movie."
The couple arrived back in Hong Kong airport yesterday afternoon, they appeared holding hands. Carina wore a pearl bracelet that was presented to her by an Indian monk earlier. She also wore a very loose fitting outfit. Once again making people speculate whether she was pregnant. But a few days ago she appeared to have quite a slim waist in her wedding photos. But Tony had denied the rumors with his response "I haven't had time to think about it" and the "Double Happiness".
Supports Li Yapeng
You could see that the married couple were in a very good mood, while making their way out of the airport they happily discussed with the reporters feelings of their wedding. The Newly married "Mrs Leung" stated that there is not much difference in her life " I am very happy." (Which part of the wedding was most touching?) "Every part had been very touching." (Did you achieve what you wanted in your wedding?) Yes, It was beyond my imagination, it was all perfect, very unforgettable."
Faye Wong sang "Sweet Honey Honey” ( 甜 蜜 蜜) at their wedding, Carina laughs " She wanted to sing in that kind of atmosphere, actually during any celebration or birthday ocassion she will sing for us." (Li Yapeng attacked reporters?) "He only wanted to protect his family, I hope everyone can understand." She also revealed while visiting India she met Trinley Thaye Dorje the 17th Karmapa and took time out to go shopping.
Asked why Tony had left Carina in charge of all the questions from the paparrazi earlier? He replied "It's Trust ". As for why they only invited 100 guests to attend their wedding, he explained "There were many friends who were older that I didn't invite because I wouldn't be able to handle it if something happened to them. (Your mother has Altitude sickness?) "She is seeing a doctor and taking medicine." (Will you invite Maggie Cheung Man Yuk for dinner?) "I don't know, but I will decide later. Even though I was able to invite 100 guests to attend my wedding, will have to see but this month has been very tiring."
Tony expressed that he will continue to rest for a while, with the exception of the promotions for "Red Cliff". He will concentrate on Fire power and use the next 6 months to prepare for his next new movie. Due to the chaos of the paparazzi fighting over a good spot to capture the couple arriving at the airport, a reporter accidently called Tony "Chi Wai". Tony appeared blank for a moment and joked "I am Chi Wai?". The scene suddenly became very funny.
Additional Maggie Cheung Man Yuk Response
There were rumors that Carina Lau did not want to invite Tony Leung’s past rumored girlfriend Maggie Cheung ( Cheung Man Yuk) to their Wedding in Bhutan. Yesterday, Maggie Cheung and her western boyfriend Ole Scheeren appeared at the Beijing Art Exhibition. When Maggie was asked whether she regretted not being invited to Tonys wedding, she didn’t really know how to reply. It wasn’t certain whether she felt the question was awkward or because she had been listening to English for a long time, influencing her Chinese Standard. She replied “Because I didn’t go!”. The reporter requested her to say a few words to congratulate the new married couple. She laughed a few times but couldn’t fully answer the question.
As for her current situation, Maggie immediately answered without any troubled. Although she is living with her boyfriend in Beijing temporarily, She also had homes in Hong Kong and Paris and would often be getting the plane back and forth for work. Therefore she spends very little time in Beijing. She also said she doesn’t have any plans on when she will film a new movie.

HONG KONG - The fuss from Hong Kong celebrity couple's Tony Leung and Carina Lau having died down, Carina was last spotted at Hong Kong's Tin Hau Temple - praying for a baby.
Before their wedding, both had expressed their wish to have a baby before the wedding, and Carina even started cutting down on alcohol and cigarettes to prepare for her new family. But their attempts at parenthood have not borne fruit.
Hong Kong media also reported that Tony Leung's mother has pressured the two for a grandchild, while speculations have been rife that Leung's white hair - seen at a recent press conference - was due to his anxiety to be a dad.
Carina was spotted by residents near the temple at Lei Yue Mun - a popular tourist attraction in Hong Kong. She was seen offering incense and touching the 'dragon bed' reputed to boost fertility. According to residents, the 'dragon bed' is more than 200 years old and a relic from the Qing dynasty. Some say that women who touch the bed would bear sons, and it has attracted many couples who hoped to conceive.
According to residents who saw her, Carina was trying to keep a low profile. She dressed conservatively in jeans and a dark-coloured shirt, wore little make up and hid her face in sunglasses and a hat. She came and left in a hurry with a girl friend with little fanfare, and not many residents witnessed their visit.

Recently, Tony Leung and Carina Lau’s wedding album has been revealed, amongst the photos includes one where Tony is kissing Carina; the 2 newlyweds seem to still be as romantic as ever. Some women will make people disregard their age; people think of her as a symbol, a sign of our era, Carina Lau is one of them. Perhaps many people dislike her, and she has never been regarded as a typical beauty, but noone can deny that she is someone who never bows down to fate and setbacks. She is a woman who has become more and more spectactular, like a touch of red wine, not dazzling, but her warmth will make people drunk.
ELLE: How does it feel to be a newlywed?
Carina: Initially, our wedding was only held to comfort both our mothers, but after receiving so many blessing from friends, I now feel that this wedding was held for ourselves. After getting married, it feels very good, feels that life has entered a new phase. In the past, I liked to party with many people, and drink wine. Now, I still drink wine, but I like to have a glass of red wine at home, read a good book, carefully savouring the taste.
ELLE: Many women will choose to marry in this season, can you share some of your experiences?
Carina: I feel very lucky that the whole process has been so beautiful. Of course, during preparations, there were many trivial details, and constant troubles, but now when I think back, I feel every moment is a worthy memory as an aftertaste to life. I hope that all the new brides will enjoy this time that belongs to her. In the process, she will definitely feel nervous, and skin state will be worse, hence she has to remember to drink lots of water, guarantee sleep, and don’t think too much about something that can’t be resolved in a day, get a good night’s sleep first.

Unkempt Andy meet “empress” Carina Lau
After welcoming “Empress Wu Zhetian” Carina Lau, director Tsui Hark had started to shoot the day scenes for the movie Detective Dee. Reporters rushed to the shooting venue in Hengdian, the crew was shooting the scene of Shang-guan Er (Li Bingbing) bringing out Di Ren Jie (Andy Lau) whom was just released from prison at Qin Emperor Palace. With his hair covering his face, moustache not shaven, he was in a dirty and unkempt state. “This is the image of Di Ren Jie just released from prison” Andy introduces: “Too hot …..”
From what can be seen, Empress Wu took good care of Di Ren Jie as he was asked to sit beside her, but Di Ren Jie think that he would be returning to the prison, thus he did not wash up before meeting Empress Wu. Director Tsui Hark arranged to shoot the scene between Empress Wu and Di Ren Jie. It can be seen that Di Ren Jie said something to Empress Wu softly, Empress Wu turned her head to one side as though she does not wish to listen to what Di Ren Jie is saying. After a while, Empress Wu said: “You guessed wrongly this time.” She then stood up, looking straight ahead and said: “I’ll agree to your request only you managed to break the burning corpse case!” Di Ren Jie then stood up and walked towards the imperial guards and said something to them. Empress Wu then flagged her sleeves, turn around to draw out the imperial sword. That’s the end of the scene.
The shooting venue is very popular. The high tower that Empress Wu seated is built on the ground of Qin Emperor Palace, the staircase had Jet Li and Chen Daoming walked in Hero, the execution ground of Sanada Hiroyuki in The Promise, also the Heavenly Palace in Forbidden Kingdom. For the shooting of Detective Dee, Tsui Hark did not make much changes to the palace, he just added a “ming tang” board at the grand hall.
At this current stage, the story and character image are in the “secret” status. Carina refused to be interviewed due to her complicated head gear, Andy and Li Bingbing expressed their view on the image of Carina. Li Bingbing whom also was wearing multiple layer of clothing said: “It’s tough for Carina.” Meanwhile, Andy quipped: “Initially my wig is not so unkempt, but after several different images for Carina, lastly this is decided …..” Andy describe his huge wig and said: “In order to make the scene more accommodating, my hair was also being styled to be so unkempt…”
Among the three actors, Andy’s “prisoner look” seems to be the most relaxing, but he still complain of shooting period movie in hot weather, he said: “When you see that this outfit is the most thin, there are still several other costumes which is thicker than this.” Andy did joked and complained: “In future, I would not be involved in period shooting between April and August!”

Japanese men raped her??? Where did you hear that? That sounds like it might be some rumor started by a Chinese person, you know, because of the rivalry between us Chinese and Japanese.
her rape stuff was just seen by my friend , it was downloaded fron the web didn't actually seen it myself but according from somewhere she did admit the she got kidnapped and raped by three japanese man. i really admire her before i heard about this news she's a good actress.after i heard about this news i admired her even more....her courage to admit to it and still stand tall. it's like the incident didn't affected her at all. im starting to hate japanese men now...........
Anyway, I read it was the Triad that did this, and the Triad are Chinese. So, in fact, it was Chinese that were the mastermind of this horrible act. I hate to admit this, since I am Chinese. But we should not make up rumors about Japanese just because of some racist attitude.
And, Carina Lau said they kidnapped her and only took nude pictures of her. She claimed that she was not raped. But, I heard there is video proof that she was definitely raped, and MANY MANY people have downloaded that video through Bittorrent and it is still available today because so many people have it, and nobody can prevent it from spreading on Bittorrent.
She only admitted to being in those pictures because everybody saw them in that magazine and she could not deny that it was her. But she never admitted to being raped. Actually, she lied about that. So, we can like her for being pretty for her age, and maybe respect her for her acting, but we can't respect her for admitting the truth, because she never did.
