Zhang Shuns The City

Stunning actress ZIYI ZHANG refuses to lead a life of celebrity debauchery in Los Angeles or New York, opting instead for a cosy family life. The Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon star has shunned the more corruptive influences of fame and fortune, and she cites her "ordinary" upbringing as the reason the fact-paced Hollywood scene holds no appeal. She says, "I grew up in the most ordinary way in Beijing. My parents are devoted to my brother and me and we take care of each other." The Asian beauty snubs other cities in favour of her homeland, which she deems to be the most serene place in the world. She adds, "I am Chinese and Beijing is my home. I can't imagine living anywhere else. I love to travel but there is nothing like coming home. The familiar way of life with its smells and sounds and patterns are far too nourishing and important to me to uproot myself from."
