In stark contrast to the great lengths that Heavenly King Andy Lau up until recently has gone to conceal his marriage, fellow Hong Kong celebrity couple Carina Lau and Tony Leung have walked a completely different path. Consistently open about their relationship, the pair, who dated each other for 20 years, publicly announced their marriage plans. Their Bhutan wedding last year was a field day for the press..
Still, Carina expressed sympathy with the media storm brewing over Andy's clandestine Las Vegas marriage. "There is a lot of confusion in this world, the internet makes it very advanced. It is very hard to tell between what is true and what is false. I hope everyone can look upon this matter calmly. He is burdened with a lot of pressure and unspoken worries, beautiful lies can be accepted."
Smilingly, she praised Carol Chu (Andy's Malaysian wife) on her willingness to hide her existence for Andy's sake, and shared that she is unable to match-up to Carol in that aspect. "I am very calm, maybe it is my own character, I am very grateful that Tony does not belong to the pack of idol celebrities," she said.
When asked about her plans to have a family, an unperturbed Carina replied, "The both of us are still queuing up. We will let nature take its own course. The heavens will have something installed for us."
Famous Cantopop singer and actor, Alan Tam, had wise words for his younger junior, Andy. "This matter is a very personal thing. I don't understand why he has to suffer so much. If you do not wish to say, then don't. You don't have to care what a fraction of people are saying. On family matters, just reply and tell them thank you for your concern. You don't have to carry a face, although he has never shown a black face too."Source
