Trivia and Quotes

  • What a natural beauty! She is a great addition to the Chinese/American film industries. Born in China, she has been in some great films such as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Hero, Lovers and Rush Hour 2.moreless

    A good actress and her beauty is a natural asset to the roles that she has been cast in. One of the hottest actresses anywhere in the world - defintely deserves more Hollywood films, if she wants them!

    Mostly the roles I have seen her in have been a combination of a damsel in distress and a kick-ass man-eater...haha...

    I think her best acting performance was probably Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon - but she looked great in Rush Hour 2!

    It would be nice to see her land some more serious dramatic types of roles. I think she has leading lady material written all over her. Hopefully someone else agrees and gives her the opportunity she deserves!moreless
  • One of the better actresses ...

    Ziyi is definitely one of the better actresses to come out of Asia in quite some time. She's lovely, talented, and a magnficent dancer.

    I have yet to see a movie featuring her that I did not enjoy.

    I look forward to seeing more of her work in the future.
