I'm a passive lover, says Zhang Ziyi

SINGAPORE - Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi is passive when it comes to love.

"I've never taken the first step when it comes to chasing guys. It's always the guys who woo me," she said.

"Maybe that's why I am still not married yet," she said in Mandarin.

The 34-year-old was in town to promote her new film My Lucky Star, which opens in cinemas here on Thursday.

Zhang had reportedly been in a relationship with popular Chinese CCTV host Sa Bei Ning since September 2011, but they split up recently, allegedly because her mum disapproved.

The relationship came to light after the pair were photographed by paparazzi when Sa visited her on the set of her movie, The Grandmaster, last year.

He subsequently admitted to dating Zhang on a TV show early this year even though she declined to talk about it.

Before Sa, Zhang was in a long-term relationship and engaged to Israeli billionaire Vivi Nevo until they split in late 2010. They reportedly broke up due to cultural differences.
