One of the most celebrated Chinese celebrity couples, Tony Leung (pic) and Carina Lau, is rumored to be getting married soon.
The couple has been in relationship for almost 2 decades, and rumours about their marriage (and sometimes breakup) have appeared every now and then.
Their marriage could be a reality this round though, as both of them have shared the same thoughts with the press that they might be getting married soon… they normally denied the rumours in the past.
Chinese kung fu actor Jet Li made the most money in 2007 among China’s entertainment elite, totaling some 465 million yuan, or around 62 million US dollars, as listed by Shanghai-based Oriental Morning Post on Wednesday.
The top ten earners are as follows…
1 Jet Li 465 million yuan
2 Jackie Chan 428 million yuan
3 Jackie Cheung 300 million yuan
4 Tony Leung 290 million yuan
5 Andy Lau 230 million yuan
6 Chow Yun-fat 100 million yuan
7 Michelle Yeoh 80 million yuan
8 Zhang Ziyi 65 million yuan
9 S.H.E. 62.5 million yuan
10 Jay Chow 60 million yuan
Hong Kong actor Tony Leung quits from movie Red Cliff, which is scheduled to start filming by end of March 2007.
The movie producer stated that Tony couldn’t fit into the schedule after the filming period is extended to 6 months, but they are other rumours.
Rumour #1 – Tony is seeking a pay rise because of the extended filming period; and also because of the movie will be made into part 1 & 2, and his agency felt that the actors should be paid higher.
Rumour #2 – Tony’s relationship with girlfriend Carina Lau is in jeopardy, and he couldn’t take the risk to film a movie for 6 months in China and not being around Carina.
Takeshi Kaneshiro is the most likely replacement for Tony at the moment.
Takeshi Kaneshiro is voted most wanted bachelor in a Taiwan poll.
2nd and 3rd on the list are singer/composer Wang Lee Hom and Jay Chou; while 4th and 5th are Hong Kong artists Tony Leung and Andy Lau.
