We wish happy birthday to our favorite actress ! She celebrates her 34th years.

The state-backed web portal China.org.cn also reported at the time that the actor was being investigated by the authorities and had been banned from leaving the country.

Zhang denies both sets of allegations and yesterday filed a lawsuit at the high court of Hong Kong seeking unspecified libel damages from Next Media over stories in its publications Apple Daily and Next Magazine.
