Misbehaving guests can be quite a pain when hosting a party. Carina Lau Ka-ling learned that the hard way when she threw a party with her actor husband on Christmas Eve, and photos of some of her guests allegedly taking drugs at the bash later made it onto the cover of a local magazine.

Lau (below) said recently she was still looking into the matter. 'I invited many of my friends to the party and they invited many of their friends, who in turn brought more people along,' she said. 'As the party went on late into the night, there were so many people there that it would have been impossible for me to keep an eye on every guest,' the 43-year-old award-winning actress said.

A recent edition of East Weekly featured several pictures of a man and a woman who appear to be snorting a white powder in Lau's study. Lau said both she and her husband were busy greeting guests and didn't notice anything amiss.

Lau said the incident would not stop her from having friends over.

Zhang Ziyi is another recent paparazzi victim, with some 80 pictures of the mainland star and her fiance Vivi Nevo at a private beach in the Caribbean having surfaced online, some of which featured a half-naked Zhang frolicking with Nevo.

Lau said it was not a crime to sunbathe topless, although she said she would not do so. 'If I were to go to a beach, I would pick a prettier swimsuit,' she said with a laugh.
