Actress Carina Lau Ka-ling says she has no plans to have

a child despite reports in the Chinese press recently. Lau made the comments at the opening of a mobile phone brand's flagship store this week.

Earlier this month, a local Chinese newspaper reported that Lau was visiting a women's clinic, speculating that the actress might be pregnant. Lau (right) did not comment on the reports.

'I think this is the press freedom of Hong Kong.

As artists, this is what we need to sacrifice,' she said. 'I'm just a normal person, doing normal things. It doesn't really matter what they wrote.'

The 40-year-old actress also revealed that

she was not looking for a new house as a means to escape the paparazzi.

She also said that she and boyfriend Tony Leung Chiu-wai would not leave Hong Kong for the mainland even if they were being pursued by the press.
