People keep pushing me to be the center of attention... I would prefer to be on the sidelines, because that's where you see more.— Gong Li
The most lavish Gong Li quotes that are little-known but priceless
Securing food is the basic task for all humans.
It is true that as he film market in China has grown, actors' and actresses' compensation has grown quite a bit. Different actors have different kind of deals. Some take percentages, some sign contracts with a company, some take a simple cash payment. But the growth also means there are many more actors out there. Competition has gotten much stiffer, too.
I don't think of myself as a star. An actress is nothing remarkable.
I have been approached to direct films, but I think everybody has their limits.
For me, I want to focus all my energy and efforts on acting and give the best performance possible. For now, I am focusing on that. Who knows, in the future maybe I will change my mind.
