Ziyi in one sentence – Zhang is a beautiful Chinese actress and one of the most captivating Chinese women alive however the most attractive thing about her is not her exotic beauty but her wit.
In China, we don't consider someone truly beautiful until we have known them for a long time, and we know what's underneath the skin.
I never thought I could become an actress; but it happened. Not because I dreamed about it, but because it just happened.
Chinese women are much more modest than American women when it comes to clothes. We tend to show less skin.
Zhang Ziyi won many national and international film awards including: Most Promising Actress (2001 Chicago Film Critics Association Awards); Best Supporting Actress for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2001 Golden Rooster Awards); Best Actress for House of Flying Daggers (2005 Huabiao Film Awards); and many other.
