Hong Kong actress Carina Lau, who is married to hearthrob Tony Leung Chiu Wai, was reportedly jealous after fellow artiste Maggie Cheung said she wanted to squeeze his thigh.
Lau married Leung last year in Bhutan after many years of dating him.
All the major Chinese dailies reported that Leung had initially been invited to be a presenter at the recent Golden Horse Film Awards together with Cheung but he declined to prevent Lau from getting angry.
The dailies speculated that despite the couple getting married, the rumour mill on Leung and Cheung’s relationship was still active.
Leung and Cheung had acted in several films as lovers, the most recent of which was Wong Kar Wai’s In the Mood For Love.
