Enigmatic, hypnotic actor (The Last Emperor), orphaned and raised at a Beijing Opera school in Hong Kong; 38. Romantic status? "I tend to keep the insignificant day-to-day details of my life to myself." "Thank you for saying I'm beautiful. On a superficial level, beauty has to do with proportion and harmony. It excites you and makes you more curious. But it doesn't last. Real beauty has to do with the humanity in you, how you communicate beyond words."
