Andy Lau was a guest at CCTV-1 variety programme VOICE, where he answered questions from the audience.
Some of the questions were on his “contest” with good friend Tony Leung Chiu Wai for the past 30 years in showbiz.
The questions that were asked included: “If Chow Yun Fat and Tony Leung fall into the sea at the same time, who would you rescue first?”
Andy, who had contested for the Best Actor award with Tony on several occasion, quipped that he would throw a stone at Tony so that he would not be able to come onto the shore.
He said: "Without him, I would be the Best Actor winner in the next 20 years”. Using humour to answer this sensitive question, he had shown off his high EQ.
Andy and Tony are of the same age and have been in showbiz for more than 30 years. Both started off from the TV circle before shifting their focus to the silver screen. Their collaboration in Infernal Affairs in 2002 was a hit.
