yes, shes pretty famous for an asian, i think. but not as famous as western hollywood actresses. she seems to be in many asian films well known in the west... like "hero," "memoirs of a geisha," "2046", "crouching tiger, hidden dragon" etc.

I saw her on E! channel on a programme called "Top 100 Hollywood Action Stars" and she got number 1! lol which was pretty crazy since she was up against the likes of Arnie, Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner ( from Alias) Jet Li and Jackie Chan.

im srry but who the eff is she i dunoo who she is ive never even heard of her before o_____o is it a joke or some sort o-o


I'm guessing you don't live in the west? (america)
from what i have seen, (i've lived in japan, china, and america) I think she's one of the most famous asian actresses in the world...I've seen her on japanese, american, and of course chinese tv and magazines.
but i guess she's not as popular in asia because she is hollywood based.

btw, i'm curious, where are you from?

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..


are you serious? she cant hold a film on her own? you have to be kidding the banquet was a great film and she was the main and most famous person in that film! shes a great actress if she couldnt act then they wouldnt have broadend her career to hollywood! yes gong li is a great actress to but ziyi zhang i think is a natural beauty with great acting abilities and great skills, honestly i dont think gong li would have been able to act in crouching tiger hidden dragon or house of flying daggers as well as ziyi zhang did. they never put crap actors to work with great ones it will hurt great actors careers and she has worked alongside GREAT actors! i respect your opinion but i think that you just generally dislike her and favour gong li more but then your not giving ziyi zhang her props where they are due!

About her not being so famous in china... i dont know but i do know that shes well known over here it just depends on what kind of films you like, to those that hate foreign films then they probably wouldnt know her but to fans like MEEEEE she is one of my favourites!

jackie chan and jet li have been around in hollywood for years and they became famous in western countries when western countries took an interest in asian movies so they have had more experience and more time to build up a reputation than ziyi zhang but now she is doing more hollywood based roles and following in the footsteps of jackie chan and jet li!! she has a few films in production at the moment and soon i think she will be just as popular!!!

people say that she has an attitude problem...guess it comes with the fame and beauty....


i heard that but i think the bad publicity came from the fact that she was seeing a jewish male so that kind of made people see her in a different light... i dont know why? shes an adult she can see who ever she likes but i have watched interviews and she seems really sweet

She's not really popular here at all. If you named a movie she was in, people would probably recollect her, but not well. She sort of flies under the radar here in the States. Like one poster already said, unless she's in an upcoming film, we don't hear much of anythihng about her. When it comes to Asian actresses in the States, Lucy Liu really gets more of the attention, though she doesn't even get that much either anymore.


i dont think thats true, maybe in your town shes not that heard of considering shes on billboards, magazine and movies in the states when i was in the states she was very popular! i think the difference between her and lucy lui is that lucy lui has played more american type roles so even though she is asian everyone sees her as a typical american even when she did that film shanghai nights (i think that was what it was called) with jackie chan she played a chinese emporers daughter and the role didnt suit her because it didnt seem authentic and the film was not that successful. Thats why she sticks to the american slapstick films such as charlies angels and other gurlie comedies
