Zhang Ziyi- Celebrate birthday in Berlin?

Zhang Ziyi- celebrate birthday in Berlin?
Zhang Ziyi
(Chinese: 章子怡, pinyin: Zhāng Zǐyí) (born February 9, 1979) is one of the best-known Chinese film actresses, with a string of Chinese and international hits to her name. Zhang is considered one of the Four Young Dan actresses (四小花旦) in China, along with Zhao Wei, Xu Jinglei, and Zhou Xun. She has worked with renowned directors such as Zhang Yimou, Ang Lee, Wong Kar-Wai, Chen Kaige, Seijun Suzuki and Rob Marshall.

Soon after Zhang's debut in Zhang Yimou's The Road Home, rumors arose regarding a possible affair between the actress and the older director. Zhang Yimou was previously involved in an extramarital affair with actress Gong Li, whom he similarly debuted and with whom Zhang Ziyi was quickly compared. However, a relationship between the two remains unconfirmed.

Hong Kong and Taiwanese media have often pushed at ties between Zhang and co-star Jackie Chan.This was fueled in part by photos that emerged of the pair during celebrations of Chan's birthday on the set of Rush Hour 2.

Zhang for a while was publicly linked with Fok Kai-shan, grandson of Hong Kong business tycoon Henry Fok.

In the July 2006 issue of Interview Magazine, Zhang Ziyi spoke of her movies' contents and being careful about the roles she take on, especially in Hollywood.

Yes. Otherwise I could have done a lot of Hollywood movies. After Crouching Tiger I got a lot of offers, but I turned them down because they were all victim roles--poor girls sold to America to be a wife or whatever. I know I have the ability to go deeper, to take on more original roles than that. That's why I really appreciated Geisha, because it allowed us to show the world what kind of actors we are and what kind of characters we can play--not just action, kick-ass parts.

She stated in an early interview that if she had not become an actress, she would have liked to have been a kindergarten teacher, as she "[s] children!"

In January 2007, Zhang was spotted holding hands and kissing her new partner at a New York basketball game. The man was identified as Israeli multi-millionaire and venture capitalist, Vivi Nevo. The two were again seen together at an Oscar party in Los Angeles. Nevo, who has previously been tied to model Kate Moss, is a major shareholder in Time Warner and an early backer of The Weinstein Company with whom Zhang is purported to have a multi-film deal. Zhang Ziyi and Nevo are currently engaged, and are planning on getting married in March, 2009, according to Nevo.

"Forever Enthralled" actress Zhang Ziyi is scheduled to appear on the red carpet for the film's screening event on February 10, 2009 during the 59th annual Berlin International Film Festival.

Zhang will also celebrate her 30th birthday on Feb. 9 in Berlin.

The art-house film "Forever Enthralled" directed by Chen Kaige is a biopic of Peking Opera master Mei Lanfang. Zhang plays Mei's fellow singer Meng Xiaodong.

"Forever Enthralled" is the only Chinese-language film in competition for the Golden Bear, the Berlin festival's top honor.
