While attending a NBA basketball game in New York earlier, Zhang Ziyi was spotted kissing her new boyfriend, 53 year-old French actor, Tcheky Karyo. Tcheky is older than Zhang Ziyi by 26 years. Photos of the couple kissing at the NBA game have since circulated widely on the internet, showcasing Ziyi’s public display of passion.
Born in Turkey, but raised in Paris, Tcheky is a French actor who has turned his career to Hollywood in recent years. Although Tcheky starred in “Kiss of the Dragon” and “The Patriot,” his popularity in Hollywood is overshadowed by girlfriend, Zhang Ziyi.
Since “Memoirs of a Geisha,” Ziyi’s popularity has increased dramatically. She will be filming Jonas Akerlund’s new movie, “The Horsemen” with Dennis Quaid. Ziyi’s manager, Ling Lucas, confirmed that Ziyi is currently polishing her English skills at the Julliard School in New York City. She will be flying to Canada to film “The Horsemen” next week.
Ziyi had previously dated , the second son of the wealthy Fok family.
Ziyi’s “older woman, younger man” romance with Kai San had once shaken the entertainment circle. However their long-distance relationship only lasted 2 years.
