There are two Tony Leungs in the movies, Tony Leung Chiu-wai and Tony Leung Ka-Fai. I am trying to find out both their heights; Tony Leung Ka-fai is known as "Big Tony", while Tony Leung Chiu-wai is known as "Little Tony".

Rob, have you seen much of leslie cheung? another great hong kong actor from Days of Being Wild, Farewell my Concubine, and Happy Together. in happy together with tony leung he seemed a strong 5'8, maybe 5'8.5. he died young so there aren't any recent photos of him but I think he deserves a page!
Editor Rob
been a while since I remember seeing anything with leslie in it

Too tall to be 5'7 and too short to be average guess 5'7 3/4. Tony is 5'7 1/2 max.
Junior said on 16/Oct/17
Closer to 171cm.

This is "Fact" from a while ago. I wanna take what I said bout Andy wearing lift back. I just saw them on youtube recently and Andy was wearing normal shoes. So iono anymore haha

Yup, I remember "Duke Of Mount Deer". Old school TVB flashbacks, haha.

But yeah, I'm also thinking 168 cm, as most HK actors were that height back then.

i really think andy and tony have the same height about 167-168 cm. In Hong Kong, there are still many people that height, Esatern aren't Western. I have seen many film Tony and Andy together, they are exactly same height, especially if u have seen "duke of mount deer". If u think about their generation, they r really ok

I have a friend who worked with andy lau(Liu De Hua) in China, he is 170cm and he said andy lau is shorter than him and Tony Leung (Liang Chao Wei) is a little shorter than Lau. I am from North China and People from north is about 4 inches taller than south, In north, it is very easy to find a guy over 6 feet, but in south, 170(5.6) is a big guy.

5'7" is definitely a stretch. 5'6" range, definitely. I've been watching him since I was a kid and he definitely is 5'6"-ish or so in reality. Most HK actors and singers of the 80s were not tall. A lot of their heights are exaggerated, compared to now as the younger actors are definitely taller (when you factor in Taiwanese, Mainland, etc. stars too).

andy lau and tony leung used to have the exact same height in the 1980's back in the old ancient movie where everyone wore the same flat shoes. Therefore, either tony had shrunk or andy had grown taller, which both of these aren't likely to happen. so that put them at the same height without shoes. around 167-170 cm

i will eat my shoes if hes 5' 9"... 5 7s already abit of a stretch... i live in hong kong and my dads seen him in person... now my dads about 5 9 and a half and said tony was raelly short... so im guessing 5' 6" would be the most intelligent guess

andy was taller in infernal affairs due to his higher heel shoes, i think they have same height
Anonymous said on 10/Mar/08
no way Tony is taller than Andy, I've watched so many films of the two together side by side, Andy always appears about 1 to 1.5 inch taller than Tony. Just look at the last scene in Infernal Afairs when the two faced each other, It's apparent Andy looks taller than Tony in that movie.
Felix said on 19/Nov/07
The accurate one is 167.5cm, from physical exam data! I am from China.

5'7. One of the best actors ever. Wong Kar Wai is pretty tall and he TOWERS Tony Leung.
fact said on 26/Dec/06
in tony's old movie "duke of mount deer" most of u probably wont know it. but andy and tony were in the same movie and tony was always the same or a lil taller than andy when they were barefeet o wearing the same shoes. In new movies nowadays andy always appear to be at least 1 inch taller than tony, probably cuz of the shoes andy wears.
anonymous said on 19/Oct/06
met him in person.. 5'5.5" - 5'6" is about right.. andy lau is 5'7.5" and he has a good inch or two on tony
kene said on 16/Sep/06
he is atually a 168ish.. 5ft6.. i mean a barefoot 168ish.. he can't be taller than 169. im 1.9m and im almost a head over him when i met him in H.K. he don't even looks over 5ft7(171cm)with shoes..
Mike said on 15/Sep/06
In the movie Infernal Affairs he was 170 but that included about an inch of hair and an inch of heel from his shoes. If you take away his shoes and flatten his hair he is about 165 or 5'5". That is why some will say he is short and some will say he's not it's just a matter of how you look at height. Some will include hair and shoes, which I think it should, nobody walks around all day barefoot and bald, and some will not.

in the movie infernal affairs there is a part when tony measure standing next to the wall with feet and inches. and he was exactly 170.
truheight said on 13/Aug/06
both Lau and Leung are quite thin w/ slight shoulders. I'd say Leung is 170cm max
ppp said on 7/Aug/06
he appear slightly shorter than Andy Lau, who claims himself 171.5 cm.
I think he is around 5'6 to 5'7
Leung said on 1/Aug/06
Tony Leung is slightly taller than Andy Lau (5'8"), so Tony would be 5'8.5"-5'9"
Mario said on 13/Jul/06
Can look from 170 to 175 in his movie's/ photo's. I would say that 171-172 cm is right.
Leung said on 9/Apr/06
Tony Leung always appeared to be 5'7" in films, however in real life he's taller than expected, he's 5'9" but very slender, still a very good looking guy.
Jack Bean said on 8/Apr/06
5'9 is impossible. 5'7 is fair and accurate.
trueheight said on 16/Mar/06
He's about the same as Andy Lau. I agree he can appear taller. But he was substantially taller than Jet Li in Hero
