Chinese international star Zhang Ziyi was (rumored) invited to be a judge at the 59th Cannes Film Festival in May.
If it’s true the 26-year-old Chinese actress will be the youngest Chinese artist to be invited to be a judge at Cannes, probably one of the youngest artist as well.
Also it could be the first time that 2 Chinese were invited to judge the event. Earlier Hong Kong director Wong Kar-Wai was invited to be the president for the board of judges.
They were a few Chinese that were invited to be judges in previous years for Cannes, including famous director John Woo, China actress Gong Li and Malaysian Michelle Yeoh etc.
The actual list of judges for Cannes will only be announced on April 20.
