    $5m

    Tony Leung and Donnie Yen are worth $5m each

    With the booming China film and television industry, Hong Kong actors are getting paid double


    Tony Leung and Donnie Yen

    Hong Kong's top grossing actors are really not cheap to hire.

    The most expensive actors would be Tony Leung and Donnie Yen, who are able to command more than $5 million each for a single movie.

    Tony's latest project with director Jingle Ma is expected to bring the veteran actor a whopping HKD30 million ($5 million), which is double of what he earned per movie last year at HKD15 million ($2.5 million).

    Since Ip Man, Donnie Yen has been one of the most sought after actors in China, with film makers raising his remuneration from RMB15 million ($3 million) last year to RMB30million ($6 million).

    The recent film market boom in China has also allowed other stars to make quite a comeback, such as Hong Kong actress Cecilia Cheung. She is expected to take home HKD10 million ($5 million) for her Lunar New Year flick All's Well, Ends Well.

    But the top grossing actor has got to be actor Jet Li, banking in a total of RMB66 million ($12 million) this year.
    Jet is worth both of them. Go figure.

    What do you guys think Donnie's favorite kung fu styles are to practice? I know he is an actor and his mother does baguazhang. Also he trained with the Beijing wushu team but I would think both him and Jet Li have to have favorite systems they practice.

    Donnie knows a lot of stuff, but movie fu is his favorite style.

    Back in the late '80s or early '90s, I read an interview of Donnie Yen, and he mentioned something like his favorite style(s) are whatever worked. When he was in Boston, he said, he learned a lot of different MA's besides just from his mother, Bow Sim-Mark. He also did TKD, kickboxing, some kung fu (I think), and karate under a Sensei Mattson, who was an early karate pioneer and teacher of Uechi-ryu style. I think he was getting into trouble, so he was sent to China for a while to train wushu. I remember him saying something like he never really felt too comfortable with the performance wushu, though he seemed good at it.

    Years before he was in movies, he appeared in a book written by his mother, I think it's called Wushu Basics (or something like that). He demo'd a lot of the jumps and kicks in the photos.

    When asked what his regime was at the time of the interview, Donnie said "Just my kicking. That's it." I'm sure his training has become more extensive since then.

    Of course, he's surely learned a lot more since then, too. How deeply he's gone into any one art, though, who knows.
