The Chinese actress is once again spotted getting a bit too cosy with her manager Chen Huihong
Famed Chinese actress Zhou Xun was seen going on dates with her manager Chen Huihong, who is a 50-year-old married man, sparking rumours that he is her new beau. The pair was spotted going for meals and walks together, though Zhou Xun, 39, has declared that they are merely friends.
However, two nights ago at a filmmaker's dinner party in Beijing, the two were seen behaving intimately. As the event was not open for media coverage, they were seated together at the same table, though they arrived separately.
After downing a few drinks, both Zhou Xun and Huihong began to let down their guard. They started to whisper to each other in low voices and were seen sharing the same chair, and even holding hands for two seconds.
When queried about this, Huihong told reporters on the phone that his relationship with his wife Dennie Wong, a renowned composer from Hong Kong, has always been good. He also emphasised that Zhou Xun was also on good terms with her.
He added that he is merely friends with Zhou Xun. 'It was very noisy that night, so we had to be close to hear each other,' he explained. 'I certainly held her hand, because she drank too much and I had to support her. We are just colleagues.'

Everyone praised how well maintained the 49 year old Gong Li was. As for outside claim that the new Mou Girl had shades of Gong Li, Gong Li protected her and said, "I saw shades of me back then." Before Gong Li finished, Chen Daoming already denied that Zhang Huiwen and shades of Gong Li, which made Gong Li add, "I don't know how to dance. Huiwen is a great young actress. Although she didn't have any performance training, she is a great actress with a lot of potential."
Chen Daoming in the film played Zhang Huiwen's father. He praised this new Mou Girl as very spirited but drastically different from Gong Li. He said, "I can see shades of others on anyone. Mou Girl is only a concept and can't be cloned. Generation after generation of actresses can't be cloned either." Zhang Yimou said that he chose the current Beijing Dance Academy student Zhang Huiwen to perform. He said that after half a year of recruitment he finally found something that resembled that era in her eyes. In addition she could dance, so he thought she was suitable.
The film has already been scheduled for a May 16 release. Zhang Yimou even described the performance of Best Actress Gong Li and Actor Chen Daoming ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Taiwanese Mandopop singer Yoga Lin received criticism from Chinese netizens after he spoke up about the China-Taiwan trade pact two weeks ago. A few days back, he posted another message that appeared to contain a political message, raising the ire of Chinese netizens again.
On Saturday, he posted on Facebook a message titled 'The six friends that we must have in life', and wrote: 'Sand is useless, mud is useless, but when they are mixed together, they become concrete, and can be used to build a house. Petrol is a coveted good, and so is rice, but when they are mixed together they lose their use altogether. It doesn't matter if it is originally a useless or useful good; what matters is who you mix with.'
Many netizens felt that his message contained an implied meaning, and again called for him to leave China. Some even added: 'It's a good thing you broke up with (Hong Kong singer) G.E.M Tang, because you don't deserve her.'
On the other hand, his former girlfriend G.E.M's popularity has risen though after clinching second place at the 'I Am a Singer' competition in China. She declared on Weibo: 'In very good spirits'¦ Thank you Khalil Fong (with whom she collaborated with for her finale song 'In Summer'), for bringing such warmth and love to 'In Summer'. When I'm old, today is the 'Summer' that I will hope to return to.'

Mixed heritage model Mandy Lieu recently stepped into the film industry. In the film HORSEPLAY (DOH MA GEI) she played a cool killer. "In the film I keep chasing Brother Ka Fai (Tony Leung), but Wong Cho Nam would throw a lot of obstacles in front of me." She also revealed that Cho Nam added a last minute kiss scene, "I didn't know about it before hand, but I think the result would be pretty funny so it was added in the last minute."
Mandy admitted that the strong cast drew her to the film. "With such a cast, I wouldn't mind being even the background board. (Do you have any pressure?) No, they were very accepting of me." Would she be too busy to date? She said, "I welcome love very much, if I run into the right one I would even fight for it. (Will you get married in a flash?) I wouldn't eliminate the possibility, but I am not in a hurry to wed."
Ma Yili sent a text message to thank the magazine that revealed her husband's infidelity
Chinese actor Wen Zhang's adultery saga has seen new developments as it was revealed that his wife, actress Ma Yili, had sent a thank you message to the tabloid that exposed his two-timing.
Wen Zhang was recently revealed to have committed adultery with former co-star Yao Di. While the latter has completely hidden herself from public scrutiny, Wen Zhang engaged in a fiery verbal match with the editor of SE Weekly.
The night before, the actor took to his Weibo to denounce the magazine: 'If you want to play, I'll play with you, so don't drag other people into this! All I have is this life of mine; I'll go all the way with you guys!'
In retaliation, the editor revealed that Yili had actually sent a text message to thank them for exposing the adultery and saving her home from a broken fate, hinting that she was the mastermind behind the exposure. However, some netizens have questioned the authenticity of the text message.
Yili made no response towards the accusation, but her father unknowingly confirmed the fact that she had sent the message when he stepped up to protect his son-in-law.
Mr Ma asserted that his daughter was not the person behind the big reveal. He added that although this incident has dealt them a huge blow, they are willing to let bygones be bygones since Wen Zhang has expressed his remorse and returned to the family.
He explained that Yili was thankful for the media's attention on her husband, and not a particular publication. Doubting the intentions of the magazine that publicised the text message, he pleaded for ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
