"I will never work with her again"
This "she" refers to Zhang Ziyi, why would Maggie Cheung, who has always been uncompetitive, say such embarrassing words?
At an awards ceremony in 2013, the organizers invited Maggie Cheung and Andy Lau as the presenters.
But when announcing Best Actress, Maggie Cheung looked at the name on the card and refused to speak.
It was Andy Lau who was on the side, and Maggie Cheung reluctantly pronounced Zhang Ziyi's name.
When Zhang Ziyi came on stage to receive the award, Maggie Cheung stepped back one after another, resisting in every way, that is, not giving Zhang Ziyi an award.
In the end, Andy Lau took the trophy and handed it to Zhang Ziyi.
This is not the most faceless, just when Andy Lau presented the award to Zhang Ziyi, Maggie Cheung actually left the award stage directly, without looking at Zhang Ziyi.
This scene cannot be described as embarrassing, not only the smile on Zhang Ziyi's face standing on the stage is difficult to hide the embarrassment, but also the audience present is difficult to understand.
Why did Maggie Cheung "play a big name" in such a grand public place?
Afterwards, when the media asked Maggie Cheung "how to view Zhang Ziyi's behavior".
Maggie Cheung was even more blunt, and said indifferently: "I can't have an opinion to her, she is much smarter than me, everyone is not an era at all!" ”
As an international superstar, how could Maggie Cheung not be qualified to give guidance to Zhang Ziyi, as a junior.
Maggie Cheung's dissatisfaction with Zhang Ziyi can be said to be completely on the surface.
So, what happened between the two? Can make Maggie Cheung so ruthless.
All this also starts with the three confrontations between Maggie Cheung and Zhang Ziyi.
In 1983, Maggie Cheung was only 19 years old, but it was in that year that she debuted with the runner-up of Miss Hong Kong.
With a straightforward and cheerful personality, she answered without scruples when interviewed by the media: she debuted for fame and fortune.
Such a completely unconcealed answer aroused the goodwill of many people at that time and gained a large number of fans.
In the first year of her debut, Maggie Cheung collaborated with many big names on "Drawing a Rainbow".
After that, she was even seen by Wang Jing, and frequently performed the female number one, and she was in the limelight for a while.
Maggie Cheung herself is also extremely dedicated, even Jackie Chan said that she is the most dedicated with the work attitude, and always arrives on time and leaves at the latest.
At first, many people were not optimistic about her and thought that Maggie Cheung was a vase, but Maggie Cheung slapped these people in the face with her actual actions.
Not long after getting the film, he was recognized by the Berlin International Film Festival for his performance in "Ruan Lingyu".
Since then, she has become the first Chinese film queen at the Berlin Film Festival.
When Maggie Cheung was in the limelight, Zhang Ziyi was still in school, and no one could have imagined that these two people would have so much intersection in the future.
In 1998, Zhang Yimou came to Chinese opera with the movie "My Father and Mother" to find suitable actors.
Zhang Ziyi, who was less than 20 years old at the time, won the favor of Zhang Yimou with her pure appearance and got the opportunity to play "Zhaodi".
Zhang Ziyi did not miss this opportunity, her performance was flexible and lively, and she played "Zhaodi" alive.
That year, Zhang Ziyi also won major awards with this role and became a rising star in the entertainment industry.
Just in 2002, in Zhang Yimou's "Heroes", Maggie Cheung and Zhang Ziyi met.
Originally, in this film, Maggie Cheung was the starring actor and Zhang Ziyi was a supporting role.
But after the film was broadcast, Maggie Cheung's plot was cut to pieces, and the scenes were pitiful.
Compared with Zhang Ziyi, who has colorful scenes and a plump image, Maggie Cheung, who has the name of a female one, looks more like a supporting role.
The specific reason was completely revealed when Zhang Ziyi was named a conspiracy girl and was praised by Zhang Yimou and Li Li.
As a result, not long after this incident, the two met again.
The movie this time is Wong Kar-wai's "2046".
Wong Kar-wai's first candidate to play the heroine was Maggie Cheung.
However, just when the audience thought that they could see Maggie Cheung's wonderful performance on the big screen, they found that the heroine scene was less than a minute, and Zhang Ziyi's role ran through the whole process.
The protagonist has become a special actor, and the supporting role has become the protagonist, how can such a thing not make people angry?
It was even more excessive to wait until the third time, and this time Zhang Ziyi directly snatched the heroine position belonging to Maggie Cheung.
This time the movie is called "Memoirs of a Geisha", and the starring role in the movie at the beginning was Maggie Cheung, but in the end, for some reason, it went around in the hands of Zhang Ziyi.
A reporter once interviewed Maggie Cheung about this matter, asking her whether she resigned voluntarily or for another reason.
Maggie Cheung's response was full of irony, saying that she did not want to return to her hometown and be told that she sold her culture in order to make money, and that the film contract of "Memoirs of a Geisha" was pushed off on her own initiative.
In addition, Maggie Cheung also directly said that she would never cooperate with Zhang Ziyi in the future, and she would not be paid less.
It can be seen from here that the intersection between Maggie Cheung and Zhang Ziyi can really be said to be very bad.
Zhang Ziyi was nominated for the National Award for "Memoirs of a Geisha" "Jean" by Maggie Cheung, becoming the first Chinese actress to be nominated.
Since this film, Zhang Ziyi is no longer that newcomer, but has become an internationally renowned international movie star.
Zhang Ziyi's own ambition also seems to be written on her face, and she can give up everything for the sake of fame.
It happened at a birthday party for Jackie Chan, and Zhang Ziyi gave Jackie Chan an unforgettable gift.
She gave herself as a gift to Jackie Chan.
The entire birthday party not only stuck to Jackie Chan, but also fed him grapes with her own hands, and when Jackie Chan finished eating, she even took the grape seeds with both hands.
This fawning behavior made both Zhou Yunfa and Anita Mui unable to stand it.
When Anita Mui asked Zhou Yunfa how to be a good actor, Zhou Yunfa said: It's good to be obedient, teachable, and be able to pick up grapes.
This answer almost scolded Zhang Ziyi by name!
Zhou Yunfa's words can be said to have completely ripped off Zhang Ziyi's fig leaf, and even mainland actors were also humiliated.
However, Zhang Ziyi was ridiculed in public more than once.
At the 2018 Huabiao Award Ceremony, Chen Daoming asked Zhang Ziyi about the difference between the Huabiao Award and the Golden Rooster and Hundred Flowers.
Zhang Ziyi, who won the Huabiao Award three times, couldn't say anything, and tried to coquettish Chen Daoming to expose this topic.
But Chen Daoming would eat her set, insisted on letting Zhang Ziyi answer, and in the end Zhang Ziyi could only hold out a "most powerful award".
If Chen Daoming hadn't said the meaning of the Huabiao Award in the end, I don't know how long this embarrassment would last.
It is this incident that makes Zhang Ziyi often criticized by others, and her reputation plummets.
In this way, Maggie Cheung's disdain for Zhang Ziyi has also been reasonably explained.
After all, regardless of whether the scene robbery was Zhang Ziyi's deliberate behavior back then, it violated Maggie Cheung's personal interests, plus Maggie Cheung's own straightforward personality, she could not forgive such Zhang Ziyi.
Now Zhang Ziyi is still active in the film industry, and Maggie Cheung, who surprised everyone, quit the entertainment industry and lived an indisputable retirement life.
The right and wrong of the year have long passed, and no one can tell who is right and who is wrong, but no matter what happened, the two of them presented us with a great visual feast.
Maggie Cheung, who enjoyed filming without seeking fame and fortune, began to enjoy life, and Zhang Ziyi, who was full of ambition, also found her own path and had her own happiness.
