Tony Leung Surprised Carina Lau for 5th Wedding Anniversary

Because of their busy work schedules, celebrity couple, Carina Lau (劉嘉玲) and Tony Leung (梁朝偉) had to celebrate their 5th wedding anniversary separately. But the romantic Tony surprised Carina with a surprise gift even though he could not be with her physically.

After going through a relationship spanning approximately 20 years, being in two separate countries is only a minor obstacle for Carina and Tony. While Carina was in Greece filming, Tony was in the United States to promote his movie, The Grandmaster <一代宗師>. For the A-list couple, they are frequently separated due to work.

In July 2008, Carina and Tony got married with a wedding reception in Bhutan. Aside from their vacation two years ago, the couple had little time for each other on their wedding anniversaries. Because work took away most of their time, they ended up having low-profiled celebrations instead.

This year was not much different. Asked how she was going to celebrate their anniversary, Carina did not see the possibility of Tony making a surprise appearance in Greece because of his work commitments. It was reported that he had secretly arranged to send her a large bouquet of flowers to be delivered to Carina at her hotel on the special day.

    you know I read the header I was like Tony so sweet and thoughtful because I never see him as someone romantic. Then I read the entire content and I kinda feel a little cheated in the sense that’s not romantic. That’s minimal! But perhaps there are more we may not know, such as a limitless credit card, freedom to pursue own interest, etc etc

      Funn,
      Carina and Tony are opposite personalities. Carina loves to socialize and drink, often the life of a party. She frequently attends parties without Tony by her side because he is not interested in such functions.

      Both allow each other plenty of freedom for their own interests and friends. Carina comes across as a very independent person who hasn’t “shackled” Tony since their marriage, understanding that he needs plenty of space and alone time.

      But I admire them for making their relationship work.

        I do wonder, is she capable of shackling him? I don’t think Tony has a temper but he doesn’t seem like a yes man either. Sometimes I forget they are like old couple you know. But I thought do so little and yet romantic? I mean this is like overblown news but then different couple, different way of showing love.

        I last read Carina wanted a child? Maybe she has stopped her partying?

        Agree! Nicely said, Jayne! I always thought Tony was the main reason they both remained together for this long, but it seems Carina’s tolerance and understanding has a great deal to do with it too.

        Shrimpboat,
        Tony seemed that he didn’t want marriage, which was why they dated for so long. But Carina patiently waited and never forced him to adopt her more flamboyant lifestyle.

        Carina is well loved by elite circles and often attends international parties. She recently met Prince Charles in London. In the last two years, since she has filmed less movies, Carina appears to travel more internationally and make more friends, while Tony comes across as living the life of a recluse.

        But they love each other, so they work around each other’s lifestyle preferences.

        Jayne,
        That is how I always felt about Tony and Carina.Although they are opposites, they accommodate and complement each other. They did not even like each other when they first met and did not like each other for years. I remember Carina(or was it Tony??) mentioning that they did not bond until they met again years later(like around 1989 or so, but I think they first met in the early 80s when they filmed that one series). I guess fate worked out for them and it is great they finally ended up together. Their love story is not the typical meet, fall in love, date and then marry… They went a fuller circle that seemed to work out better than the typical pattern.

      Omg! That’s exactly how I felt too…but you had put it into words very nicely, thank you!

      My sentiment exactly the same. So bare minimum. My French boss bought a De Beers ‘Talisman’ necklace for his wife a few weeks ago. When I found out I asked what was the occasion? He said, no occasion, just because she is special! That to me is romantic!!!

    Is it true I heard that Carina was dating some rich guy when things had cooled off with Tony?

    They seem like opposites and speaking from someone with experience, opposites do not attract in the long run.

      “They seem like opposites and speaking from someone with experience, opposites do not attract in the long run.”

      They have been together for many many many years aka long run. I think now at their age, they just want companionship and some understanding.

        Alright, but can you tell me if she did date some millionaire rich dude at one point (who was either divorcing his wife or still married at the time) while dating Tony or have they always been together (never seen other people)?

      Opposite personalities actually often function well together in marriage. But opposite values don’t bide quite as well. I salute them for making their marriage work well.

      I do not think that opposites do not work/attract in the long run. It really depends on the couple and how much effort and compromise they are willing to put out. Sometimes when you are too alike that is not good either.

    At least he made the effort to send her flowers. Tony seems like those traditional macho man, where these romantic stuff are considered useless. My dad never gave a single rose/flower to my mom..

    The best gift Tony can give Carina is to make her preggers…ahaha. I wish for them a beautiful bouncing baby! 😀

    I think they’ve actually given up on the baby thing, as numerous treatments given by the fertility specialists have been unsuccessful for them.

    The major handicap for Carina in conceiving is her age. Then it comes down to the stress of a busy work schedule and her party girl and highly social lifestyle; all of which impede her chances of conceiving a baby.
