Happy birthday to our favorite actress!
Yesterday Ziyi celbrated her birthday with many guests. But more important, Ziyi said “yes” to a marriage proposal from her boyfriend, Wang Feng…
After months of anticipation by fans, Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi’s boyfriend has proposed.
And he did it in a high-tech yet romantic way, reported website NetEase.
At Zhang’s birthday party yesterday, Chinese rocker Wang Feng sent a white drone carrying a diamond ring flying in, accompanied by romantic music.
As friends such as singers Wang Lee Hom and Na Ying looked on, he went down on one knee and proposed.
Amid cheers and applause, Zhang’s surprise turned to tears as she answered firmly, “Yes”. She turns 36 years old tomorrow.
This morning, on her Weibo, she wrote “Yes, I wil (marry you),” and posted a picture of a fireworks scene at the party.
“We have experienced happy times and bitter times. I hope Ziyi will always have happy times. If we grow old, I will still be able to look after you,” Wang had tearfully proposed.
They then embraced and enjoyed the fireworks display.
Reports said he gave her a 9.15-carat flawless diamond ring from London’s Moussaieff Jewellery and a ruby-diamond bracelet.
Zhang was born in the Chinese Year of the Goat and the party’s theme was, as translated from Chinese, “Goat Year Wins Ziyi”. The Goat Year starts on Feb 19.
Wang, 43, also decorated the venue, which was unidentified in the NetEase report, filling a backdrop wall with flowers.
The Wang-Zhang romance came to light as early as July 2013 when they were seen in Los Angeles where she was promoting The Grandmaster (2013).
Three months later, they were seen sharing a blanket on a plane. Gossips then criticised her for picking a lesser beau, saying she earned 20 times more than him.
A month later, at a Shanghai concert, Wang pledged publicly to make her “the happiest woman in the world“.
Pictures of the party are in the gallery!
On January 22nd, Ziyi was in Florence, Italy to attend the launch of a special capsule collection of the Italian children’s clothing brand I Pinco Pallino.
The new 3D cut of “The Grandmaster” was released on Monday 5th january and the cast of the film attended various promotional events in Beijing. Wong Kar-wai, Tony Leung Chiu-wai, Chang Chen, Zhang Jin and Wang Qingxiang were all there to promote the film. During a press conference, “the director and cast members were asked to express the unique flavour of each other” and Wong Kar-wai compared Ziyi to an onion :
As to his leading lady Zhang Ziyi, Wong said, “She is like an onion. She is spicy and crunchy, a northern specialty. The flavour is sweeter when it’s more mature.”
Yesterday the cast attended a press conference with martial artists.
Wong Kar Wai is promoting “The Grandmaster 3D” and we know more about this new version…
the 3D edit was put together with shorter U.S. cut as a loose guide, however, previously unseen material was also incorporated. The final result? A movie that now runs 111-minutes-long (versus 122 in the original international cut) and apparently has a new structure and more streamlined storytelling.
The most mysterious martial art style of Zhang Ziyi’s character Gong Er, the “64 palms” might possibly show its true face again. In The Grandmaster, Ip Man and Gong Er only had two duels but was so deeply impressed by the “64 palms” that he found it hard to forget. He only wanted to see such great kung fu again, unfortunately due to various reasons Gong Er’s special abilities finally vanished from the world, without any “echo”. Yet in the end of The Grandmaster 3D‘s trailer, Gong Er’s line “If you want to see the 64 palms, you only have the time it takes to open a fan” was added. Seemingly there was room for something more.
A beautiful music video of the film has been unveiled. Take a look.
Enjoy this new and very exciting trailer with a new fight between Ziyi and Tony Leung…
