Hugh Grant Hearts Ziyi Zhang

Hugh Grant Hearts Ziyi Zhang

Hugh Grant is set to star with Ziyi Zhang in a romantic comedy entitled Lost for Words, reports Variety.

Hugh Grant reportedly first falls for the charms of a director’s translator, but soon recognizes the real object of his affection is the director herself, Ziyi Zhang. However, the translator is the only one able to communicate between the two and she has her own motives and intentions behind her actions.

Lost for Words was written by Jamie Curtis and Dan Mazer (Borat).

DO YOU THINK Hugh Grant and Ziyi Zhang would make a good couple?

This has got to be an false rumour right? Because seriously, although I love him, Hugh is getting a bit old for these cutsie rom-coms now and the girl does look a bit too young and fresh for him.
He should save himself solely for Richard Curtis because he is a guy that can get the very best out of Hugh like no-one else.

If you think Sharon Stone and Tobey Maguire would be a cute couple then there’s nothing wrong with this.

Hugh Grant is over rated, and this pairing would be a total mismatched. Just look at those bags underneath his eyes.

Ziyi must have been 1 day old, when Grant was beginning his career. Way too age-mismatched. As to talents – Ziyi is a critically acclaimed Chinese actress in China. Internationally, all eyes are on her. Grant ‘s allure was his image – none one iota more. Brits are superb breed of actors, Grant, regretfully is an exception.

Grant and Zhang – foul chemistry !

They should replace Hugh Grant with a better actor. I mean, you have a great director and lead actress!

I heart her, too! She is so beautiful and so talented. I loved her in House of Flying Daggers.

Oh pleeeease! Have you seen her boyfriend? He is old and looks like a brown leathery ugly …thing! Ewwwww! She should go for Hugh!

Ughh…this sounds like a movie they made just for her … and her lack of English speaking skills.

Isn’t Hugh Grant a litle long inthe tooth for this kind of thing? Can’t he play anything else? Move On Hugh…play someone’s father (or grandfather).

Ziyi Zhang is so beautiful and is talented….will look forward to seeing her next film.

Don’t think this is the best photo of Hugh Grant! I enjoy his humor and quirkiness in romantic comedies. He and Rene Zellwegger should partner up in real life!

no she is way out of his league

Jilly, you are soooo superficial!

Zhang is not only gorgeous, but extremely talented. Even this movie is a step down for her, let alone having Hugh be the one interested in her. They should have used someone like one of the Ryans, Gosling or Reynolds, or someone like that.

Hugh Grant is too hideous

#15 i don’t think she should be criticized whether this movie was made for her or not just because of her english-speaking skills…

I don’t find Ziyi talented. She has the same expressions on the three movies I saw–Crouching Tiger, Flying Dagger and Geisha. It was a bore watching her and Gong Li (another with same expressions throughout). Personally I like Maggie Cheung and Michelle Yeoh. There are also a host of Chinese stars who started around Maggie and Michelle started that are more talented.

Grant too is over rated.

typical HOLLYWOOD SEXISM. the man is 47 and she’s 29. 18 year age difference.
