The latest rumor is that Gong Li, who split with her Singaporean hubby, is now dating her co-star in her most recent movie, Shanghai. That’s right, John Cusack has once again gotten the girl.
From Shanghai Daily comes this juicy tidbit:
Gong and Cusack were spotted holding hands when leaving a Beijing hotel during the movie’s premiere in China, Southern Metropolis Entertainment Weekly reported yesterday. Hotel porters were quoted as saying they returned together very late that night.
Meanwhile, Gong’s manager Christophe Tseng has admitted Gong divorced her husband Ooi Hoe Soeng, a tobacco company executive. Tseng refused to reveal more details and also declined to comment on the actress’ relationship with Cusack.
Cusack once said Gong was beautiful and smart, just like Mona Lisa, and that it was very easy to fall in love with her.
Gong has praised her American counterpart as a wizard full of charms. “I’m fond of him,” she once said.
Mona Lisa? Wizard full of charms? I’ve kind of got this image of John Cusack, standing outside Gong Li’s hotel window, boom box raised over his head, pledging his love to one of China’s most beautiful women. Only it’s not as cute now because he’s now no longer a svelte teen romcom star. *sigh*
