Have you heard of 26-year-old Zhang ziyi, who starred in the Crouching Dragon Hidden Tiger, been named as one of the most 100 influential people in 2005 by Time Magazine?
Yes, unbelievable. Who is influnced by her?
That's the typical criticism to Zhang by the media in Hong Kong, also in China. But they have to admit, the young former dancer has been promoted to the internation limelight in the few years, without any famous family background.
She may not be admired by the people, but she shows to people, both like her or not, that a Chinese girl could do the things she wants with her efforts and hard work. That should be called "influnce", isn't it?
