Tony Leung and wife are billionaires -- so this might seem strange

24 June 2015 / 1 year 4 months ago

As one of the top celebrity investors in the industry, Tony Leung Chiu Wai (梁朝偉) and wife Carina Lau (劉嘉玲) are two of Asia’s richest stars.

Over the years, the couple have invested on various businesses and real estate. It is said that the couple has a combined wealth of over $1.2 billion HKD.

With their fortune, both Tony and Carina have semi-retired from acting. Tony has not filmed a movie project in two years, his last work being Wong Kar Wai’s(王家衛) 2013 kung fu film, The Grandmaster <一代宗師>.

Carina, on the other, would occasionally make supporting appearances in various big-budget films, reports Jayne Stars.

Nonetheless, the couple are grounded and humble. They spend modestly and do not show off their wealth. Tony, in particular, leads a very private life.

The actor, who prefers traveling alone, was recently spotted in Jordan’s Temple Street, doing some light shopping. He then boarded an MTR train to Admiralty, where he went to a supermarket. He was dressed in all black, and wore a face mask and a cap.

Tony ate dinner alone, spending no less than $200 HKD for the meal. He then went to a nearby HMV store to look at some CD’s and DVD’s, but did not purchase anything.

The 53-year-old award-winning actor has been spending his life comfortably and freely in the last few years. In the beginning of the year, he traveled to India to meet with His Holiness, the 17th Karma Ogyen Trinley Dorje.

After returning to Hong Kong, he attended to several public events, but has since retired from the public eye.
