It is safe to say that any opinion/discussion about this relationship is purely based on speculations, since no one here really knows ZZY personally. Though, it is truly interesting to see the different opinions/conclusions arising from this situation.
This question is unproductive, because the answer won’t necessary represents the truth. If he was a bum on a street, then I definitely don’t think that she would consider him. Would you? I wouldn’t! But then I would never consider anyone who is not financially stable, so does this make me a gold digger too? Yes, he is filthy rich, but why is she being punished for it? On the record, what has he done for her career? Seriously! Any achievement of fame and fortune thus far, she has accomplished on her own. She is listed #2 on China’s Forbes Celebrity List, only after Yao Ming; she commands $5 million USD per picture (not exactly spare change in my book) and I’m sure her value will further increase in future roles. Again, all these achievements were accomplished sans her current boyfriend. This is just to show that she is a capable and hard working individual, not someone who simply sits around on her *** and waits for prince charming to deliver the crown. Feel free to question her talents and merits, but don’t disrespect and degrade someone’s hard work and achievements just for entertainment values (and I’m pretty sure that this is not your intention, but there are those who like to exploit this situation for entertainment purpose).do you honestly think that if you take away his money, she would even consider him?
What is the Hollywood standard exactly? How many A-listers in Hollywood can command a $15-20 million paycheck? Though, you are absolutely right that she cannot compete with her boyfriend. But how many people in the world can compete with billionaires? So should millionaire only date millionaire? Should people with status, money, and higher education only exclusively date people from similar background and status? Because heaven forbids, if a millionaire marries a billionaire, then she must be a gold-digger as well, because I’m sure a million dollar is just spare change to someone who has a hundred times the wealth.and as i said, she is rich but compared to hollywood standards and compared to how much her bf makes, she really cannot compete. and doctors and lawyers do not make the amount of money that he makes.
Look at Katie Holmes. Before she met Mr. A-lister, Tom Cruise, she was just a C/B-list actress and wasn’t even making nearly the amount of money that ZZY is making right now. Although Tom Cruise is nowhere is as rich as ZZY’s boyfriend, but he is still a bankable star with a network of over $100 million. Yet, I have never heard anyone called Katie Holmes a “gold digger,” and I don’t think anyone will label her that now since despite their strange courtship, their relationship seems to be sincere and legit after the birth of their daughter.
Furthermore, ZZY has been with this guy for almost a year now, and she has never talked, exploited, or flaunted her relationship to the public. Being private and personal simply aren't traits of a "gold digger" IMO.

i wouldn't date a bum on the street for sure, but i would be even less likely to date a bum on the street who looks like he can be my grand papa. zzy's boyfriend is white, and it's generally agreed that whites don't age as well as asians. thus, even if he is 41 and she is in her late 20's, they look generations apart. however, putting the superficial issue aside, i can also say that i find it hard to believe it's love on his part as well. he's known for dating supermodels, stars...zzy could be another number for him. thus, i find it difficult to grasp that it's love. i can be idealistic at times, but other times, i can also be more realistic. and i really don't care about zzy enough to say i wish her the best in life or that i hope it is love for her. (i do care enough to engage in this conversation...it's more fun than watching her act).
also, i still question katie and tom's relationship...it still strikes me as a publicity stunt. nor do i know anyone around me who would define their relationship as sincere. she may not be a gold digger, but i still suspect that she was hoping to boost her career...her acting was never top notch in my opinion nor was her personality outstanding enough to capture my attention, but at least katie holmes and tom cruise understand each other without the aid of a translater.
yes, i've never really liked zzy nor respected her so called acting...but i find her more interesting than katie holmes. and if i'm wrong about the gold digging part then i'm wrong. it was still much fun speculating...but too much work trying to see zzy as being earnest in her relationship with him. =P
If you have a world of beautiful women at the tip of your finger, then it is not surprising that he would fall for only supermodels and movie stars. With his power and status, who in the right mind would expect him to choose a country pumpkin? Though, beautiful people deserve to be loved too, so who is to say that he doesn’t love ZZY or is not capable of loving her?i can also say that i find it hard to believe it's love on his part as well. he's known for dating supermodels, stars...zzy could be another number for him. thus, i find it difficult to grasp that it's love. i can be idealistic at times, but other times, i can also be more realistic.
She strikes me as a very impressionable girl, but not faked. Besides, it is hard to fake something so over the top as their love for this long. I know I couldn't do it.also, i still question katie and tom's relationship...it still strikes me as a publicity stunt. nor do i know anyone around me who would define their relationship as sincere.
I concur! Never watched one episode of "Dawson Creeks."she may not be a gold digger, but i still suspect that she was hoping to boost her career...her acting was never top notch in my opinion nor was her personality outstanding enough to capture my attention.
Hey, I like your signature. I want to steal it!
