Actress Gong Li

I'm stoned and watching Gong Li in the movie "The Princess and the Assassin", one of the few movies of hers I have not seen. She makes my heart beat louder, I swear to God.

The feeling she creates in me is somewhat sexual, but so much more than that. It's more like awe.

I will never find her uninteresting.

I've seen her act. Gong Li would have never made it on my show.

by Anonymousreply 111/17/2012

Yes, she's mesmerizing. I could not take my eyes off of her while watching Miami Vice and at the time I found Colin Farrell so hot. Go figure!

Fuck you R1, I'm being serious!

Also, I meant "The Emperor and the Assassin."

She is incredible, but I hate that train movie she made - incomprehensible.

by Anonymousreply 411/17/2012

She is so HOT in the movies 'Memoirs of a Geisha', 'Eros', 'Hannibal Rising' and in 'Shanghai'. She is also a great actress!

Truly sexy Gong Li.

Is she the one on the roof?

Gong Li the Asian beauty

R7...i don't know what you mean. :)

Gong Li as a Geisha. Ravishing!

by Anonymousreply 911/27/2012

Bai Ling is on the roof - Gong Li is probably the greatest film actress ever to emerge from China and stunning to boot.

Geisha Gong Li

by Anonymousreply 1111/27/2012

She was spellbinding in Wong Kar-Wai's "2046," the sequel to "In The Mood For Love."

She (and Zhang Ziyi)spoke Mandarin in the film, whereas Tony Leung spoke Cantonese, so if you were aware that they were speaking different languages to each other, it was very strange effect. But they all made it work, such is their skill as actors.

Yes Gong Li and Joan Chen are the best Chinese actresses in my opinion and both are rare beauties.

by Anonymousreply 1311/27/2012

Thank *god* they made "Memoirs of a Geisha" with her and other divas Chinese cinema. Though it might have looked more authentic with Japanese actresses, I can't imagine it would have been nearly as fun to watch.

by Anonymousreply 1411/27/2012

I enjoyed a lot 'Memoirs of a Geisha'too. It has also an excellent soundtrack.

Yet another "I'm stoned, but..." threads. You 420, "wake and bake" idiots are beyond boring.

R16 you are incomprehensible, phew...

by Anonymousreply 1711/27/2012

I really hated the film Memoirs of a Geisha - but not because of the great Chinese actresses. Rob Marshall made a big freaking mess, imo.

by Anonymousreply 1811/27/2012

Joan Chen is the one who does it for me.

by Anonymousreply 1911/27/2012

Joan is more warm, i can see why she does it for you...:)

I also think that Joan is more moving and gentle that Gong Li, however they are both rare beauties as i said before...

by Anonymousreply 2011/27/2012

A lot of Asian women look like that.

by Anonymousreply 2111/27/2012

Gong Li is a fierce presence - I also love Michelle Yeoh - but sh edoe snot cmpare to Gong Li as an artist. Li is like Jessica Lang.

What train movie? Are you talking about 2046? It was the third movie in a trilogy; had you not seen the other two?

by Anonymousreply 2311/27/2012

Get it on, bang a gong!

by Anonymousreply 2411/27/2012

Joan Chen is powerful, Gong Li is a fierce, passionate presence as you said and Michelle Yeoh a natural earthy beauty. All these women are memorable.

r23 - This film made no sense to me whatsoever - and I see a lot of Asian cinema.

by Anonymousreply 2611/27/2012

Yes R26, i have seen that film too and i got as puzzled as you. I didn't like it especially but Gong Li was very beautiful in that movie as well.

by Anonymousreply 2711/27/2012

R26, have you seen 'Eros'? Gong Li plays a very sexy part in that particular one.

by Anonymousreply 2811/27/2012

The real beauties are the actresses who played Hatsimomo in Memoirs and the other one who played the singing opera wife in Raise The Red Lanterns. Sorry, but Li comes across as a peasant farmer. Sure, she's fine but not breathtaking like those other gals.

by Anonymousreply 2911/27/2012

Oops, sorry, I was thinking of the top star in Memoirs of a Geisha. Gong Li, she's the fucking bomb. So very sorry. Forgive me.

by Anonymousreply 3011/27/2012

She should get a talk show, call it... hmm... THE GONG Show

by Anonymousreply 3111/27/2012

She's a whore, 親愛的

by Anonymousreply 3211/27/2012

If you put her on screen in the same shot as Ryan Gosling fucking Joseph Gordon Levitt's brains out, I think Gong Li would still hold my attention. Good example of having "it".

by Anonymousreply 3311/27/2012

You made me laugh R16, because I don't disagree with you, but I still say Gong Li is special. I don't need to be high to see that, honestly.

by Anonymousreply 3411/27/2012

Julie Chen is a ravishing beauty and a great talent.

by Anonymousreply 3511/27/2012

She was to die for gorgeous in "Raise the Red Lantern" which is also a pretty good flick.

by Anonymousreply 3611/27/2012

who cares op?

by Anonymousreply 3711/27/2012

Yeah that was a good one, R36. I got all Gong Li DVDs from Netflix today, so I 'm going to do a marathon this weekend.

Thanks for that bit of info R12. I never knew that! (It's info like this that makes DL worth coming to.) It'll make 2046 more interesting if ever I get a chance to see the movie again.

Anyway, I always thought Gong Li was at her best in Zhang Yimou's fabulous films - maybe with the exception of the last two. Her performance in To Live is truly sublime.

by Anonymousreply 3911/27/2012

In 'Hannibal Rising' she is also very seductive.

by Anonymousreply 4011/28/2012

I love Gong Li in The Story of Qui Ju .

This is a very unique sort of film. I love the way the story is told visually. Li gives an extraordinary performance - it's not the least bit glamorous - her looks are incidental.

by Anonymousreply 4111/28/2012

Li Gong is the new Gong Li.

by Anonymousreply 4211/28/2012

She was so glamorous and Garbo-esque in "Miami Vice."

by Anonymousreply 4311/28/2012

She has a very sensual presence. And don't forget Farewell my Concubine, great film.

by Anonymousreply 4411/28/2012

In western films she is cast for her beauty and object value. In Chinese films she is cast as an actress telling a story.

I haven't seen yet the ' Curse of the Golden Flower'. Is it good or it lacks a good scenario?

Another East Asian "beauty" created from a plastic surgeon's hands.

R49, stop being mean. I bet you would love it if Gong Li was licking your balls. Hypocrite!

Gong Li or Li Gong

Make a thread for JOAN CHEN bitches. WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

by Anonymousreply 5211/28/2012

Yes, Gong Li is beautiful. You can show gorgeous pictures of her for days though and it wouldn't explain her tremendous appeal to me. It is the force of her personality that makes her so special, not her looks.

by Anonymousreply 5311/28/2012

She reminds me of young Streep in a way. Fierce like in Manhattan - before Meryl wanted us to love her.

by Anonymousreply 5411/28/2012

Why did she leave "The View?" It was better with her than it is with Hassleback.
