Andy Lau spends hefty sum on wife

By Lester Gan Wai Lun | From Cinema Online Exclusively for Yahoo! Newsroom – Mon, Dec 5, 2011

Singer-actor Andy Lau who is believed to be expecting a child with his currently pregnant wife Carol Chu, has hired six bodyguards to protect her and spent millions on a new home just so the pregnancy goes smoothly, according to the May Daily website.

The due date for the baby is believed to be in May 2012.

Carol will be staying in her hometown in Malaysia during the duration of her pregnancy in order to avoid being overwhelmed by paparazzi.

For her comfort, Andy has bought a NT $110 million (SG$ 4.6 million) luxurious residence in Kuala Lumpur for her to live in.

Andy is believed to be even more cautious about Carol's pregnancy this time around because she had suffered a miscarriage back in 2008.

Back then, when the couple learned that Carol was expecting, they were so overjoyed that they headed to Las Vegas to register their marriage. Unfortunately, they lost the baby upon their return to Hong Kong.

Hong Kong's 'A Simple Life' sweeps 'Chinese Oscars'

Hong Kong drama "A Simple Life" swept the board Saturday at the Golden Horse Film Awards -- known as the Chinese-language Oscars -- with gongs for best picture, director, actor and actress.

"I want to thank director Ann Hui and Andy Lau for giving me this opportunity to play so I can be so lucky in my old days," Hong Kong actress Deanie Ip, who took the Best Actress award, told the crowd at a gala ceremony in Hsinchu, northern Taiwan.

Ip, 64, played a servant who wants to move into a nursing home after suffering a stroke in "A Simple Life", a role that also won her the best actress award at September's Venice film festival.

Hui was crowned best director and Lau best actor for the film, based on the true story of veteran Hong Kong film producer Roger Lee.

"I am very happy to win -- I hope I won't have a stroke," joked Hui, who saw off popular Taiwanese director Wei Te-sheng and Chinese veteran Jiang Wen.

However, as Lau collected his award he said Hong Kong's film industry was at a low point and he hoped it would pick up to emulate Taiwan.

Wei, whose aboriginal war epic "Seediq Bale" led the race with 11 nominations, walked away with the best picture and two technical awards as well as best supporting actor for Bokeh Kosang.

"I am really grateful to my co-workers and I am sorry to have kept you in the mountains for so long. I also want to thank all the 'angels' who financed the film," Wei said.

"Seediq Bale" was based on the true story of a mountain headhunting tribe fighting against Japanese colonial forces in the 1930s, and became Taiwan's most expensive production with a cost of US $23 million.

Wei told AFP in an earlier interview that shooting the film in the mountains was challenging, while securing enough funding to keep the production rolling was a constant struggle.

The best new performer prize went to 20-year-old Ko Chen-tung for playing writer Giddens Ko in the teen romance "You are the Apple of My Eye," which has topped box offices in Taiwan and Hong Kong.

Mainland Chinese films notably missed out in the major categories this year, although acclaimed director Jiang Wen's black comedy "Let the Bullets Fly" took best adapted screenplay and best cinematography.

Nearly 30 films from Taiwan, China, and Hong Kong were nominated in the 48th edition of the Golden Horse Awards, styled after the US Academy Awards but decided by a jury along the lines of the Cannes film festival.
