House Of Flying Daggers director ZHANG ZIYOU has warned his ex-lover and muse Gong Li not to work full time in Hollywood, because it is "too limited" for Chinese actors.
Zhang, who has reunited with Gong for his latest film CURSE OF THE GOLDEN FLOWER, acknowledges the Memoirs Of A Geisha star's significant success in Hollywood, but claims it might not offer her enough challenging roles in the future.
Zhang says, "For sure, Hollywood can give Gong a bigger range of characters.
"But I'm not sure she can play to her best in Hollywood. It's too limited."
