Zhang Ziyi's , though not the prettiest ( I think), definitely one of the best and most famous Asian actresses.

I see her in a lot of Western magazines and she's generally proclaimed as the most famous Asian actress, yet few of my American friends know her. How famous is she, really?

P.S. I'm super excited that she'll be finally starring as "normal (not ancient Asian women)" roles opposite Dennis Quaid and Hugh Grant in her new movies.


Ziyi around the world:




Filmography (she starred in all of them but Rush Hour 2 and TMNT)


Touching Starlight
The Road Home -her best drama ever
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
Rush Hour 2 - Hollywood
The Legend of Zu
Musa -Korea
Hero
Purple Butterfly
2046
House of Flying Daggers
Jasmine Women
Princess Raccoon -Japan
Memoirs of a Geisha - Hollywood
The Banquet
TMNT -Hollywood
The Horsemen -Hollywood
Mei Lanfang
Lost for Words -Hollywood

Yep Hiro Nakamura. I guess I should say Masi Oka. Kind of cliche, but sweet little man in Heroes. Even more cliche is the character Sandra Oh plays though, the aggressive perfectionist Asian.

sure, shes famous outside of asia....in america, shes probably most famous for her supporting actress role in Rush Hour alongside Jackie Chan and for her other roles too. such as in Memoirs Of A Geisha and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon...its just that you dont really see or hear about her much in America unless there's a new film coming out.

famous? i thought she's only famous in the western countries and not in asia.. cos most asian doesn't like her.. i simply think she cannot acts.. if it wasn't for the really popular male lead and other actresses she collaborates with, i wouldn't bother to watch her movie at all... she cannot hold a movie on her own..

gongli is considered china's greatest beauty for a long period of time.. cos she can really acts and she is really beautiful..

i think lucy liu is more popular..

She's pretty famous, I guess. Back before dramas, she was the only Asian actor/actress I knew besides Jackie Chan. I don't know much about her, though. But I don't think she's super famous like Johnny Depp or anything.
