Ziyi's Giant Pay Hike

Chinese actress ZHANG ZIYI's movie fee has multiplied ten times over the past three years - thanks to roles in blockbusters MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA and HERO. Film-maker HOU YONG, who directed the star in JASMIN FLOWER three years ago (03) for which she was paid $500,000 (GBP280,000), is amazed by the actress' sudden rise to the Hollywood A-list. Yong says, "When Zhang Ziyi made this movie her salary was $500,000. "Now, her salary is $5 million. It's a tenfold jump. It's really amazing."
