Zhang's Hong Kong U-Turn In Interview

Chinese movie beauty ZIYI ZHANG caused controversy in a recent magazine interview when she slammed Hong Kong, then quickly changed her mind about the island when her manager stepped in.

The CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON actress was chatting to London publication TIME OUT's reporter CHRISTOPHER HEMBLADE to promote her new film HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS, when she complained about the former British colony.

Ziyi says, "I think Hong Kong - they are just snobbish. I don't know, they live in such a small...'

The actress was then interrupted by the manager LING LUCAS, who interjected, "Oh honey, I don't think you should go there. We live in a little island."

Ziyi quickly altered her opinion about Hong Kong, and said, "I love Hong Kong. The food is so great."
