Tony Leung and Carina Lau’s relationship perseveres despite the actor’s long record of extramarital relationships.
Recently, social media has been buzzing with rumors about Tony Leung’s extramarital relationship with a star 36 years younger than him. They allegedly have a child together.
Throughout Tony Leung’s years of work, the actor has had many controversial relationships with his co-stars, one of which is Maggie Cheung, who starred “In the Mood for Love.” The two stars reportedly fell in love during the filming and did not deny the rumors.
Nonetheless, despite their fondness for each other, Tony Leung got married to Carina Lau. Rumors about his lingering feelings toward Maggie Cheung took full force in an interview where he was asked at which age he wanted his life to stop. In response, he replied 38 years old – the year he worked with Maggie Cheung for “In the Mood for Love.”
At their reunion at Cannes, Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung were seen holding hands while Carina Lau was beside Tony.
During the filming for “Lust, Caution,” Tony Leung was wrapped up another relationship rumor with Tang Wei. Director Ang Lee revealed that the explicit scenes in the movie were not scripted and were only included in the final movie because of the actors’ chemistry. When asked about the sex scenes, the actors revealed they only became immersed in their characters and their wishes to have a child.
Two major rumors led the public to question the relationship between Carina Lau and Tony Leung and what bound them together.
In response, many netizens point out that Tony often showed his expressions in away from the public eye.
In 1990, aware of his girlfriend’s kidnap, he dropped his filming schedule to take care of her. When leaked photos of the actress from the assault came out in East Weekly magazine, Tony Leung was firmly by her side.
Carina Lau and Tony Leung got married in 2008 and stayed together without having a child. Through many ups and downs, viewers are feeling a sense of resemblance between Tony’s relationship and that of his character in “Happy Together.”
Many viewers consider the movie to be a premonition of the actor’s relationship with Carina Lau. As the characters in “Happy Together” break up in the end, Tony and Carina will go on their separate ways one day.
Nonetheless, after many shocking scandals, the couple stays together. Hence, Chinese netizens believe, whatever happens, Tony Leung and Carina Lau will persevere as always.
