    They're a match made in film

    ANDY Lau and Sammi Cheng have starred alongside each other as lovers in countless movies.

    Here's our pick of some of the movies where they've been cast together.


    Director: Johnnie To

    Before Mr and Mrs Smith, there were Mr and Mrs Thief. Cheng and Lau played a husband-and-wife team of super-thieves who split up after a diamond heist.

    LOVE ON A DIET (2001)

    Director: Johnnie To

    Both actors donned fat suits with prosthetic make-up to take on the roles of obese characters in this romantic comedy.

    NEEDING YOU (2000)

    Director: Johnnie To

    Cheng and Lau played colleagues who become lovers while helping each other deal with their problems.

    INFERNAL AFFAIRS I and III (2002-2003)

    Director: Andrew Lau and Alan Mak

    Cheng played Lau's wife in this hit, which starred Lau as a mafia member who infiltrates the police force alongside Tony Leung, who played an undercover cop in the local mafia.

    This collaboration was unlike their romcoms, as the focus was on Lau's and Leung's characters.
