Zhang said that if given the opportunity she would ask U.S. President George W. Bush how many Chinese films he has watched.
After having stirred some controversy in her home country for her starring role in Memoirs of a Geisha, Zhang told the Chinese press that she was still interested in Chinese films. She's scheduled to make The Banquet, based on an ancient court drama this year under the direction of Feng Xiaogang.
Her film Jasmine Woman, which won the Jury Prix Prize at the Shanghai International Film Festival in 2004 is slated for public release on April 24 in China.
