Zhang Ziyi 'enraged' by paparazzi photos
Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi has expressed her resentment over a series of paparazzi photos that show intimate scenes of her and her fiance.
A series of 81 photos were released last weekend on an English-language Website, and quickly spread to Chinese Websites. Some sites will temporarily shut down due to the overwhelming number of hits, according to a report on Sina.com.cn.
The photos show scantily-clad Zhang Ziyi and Vivi Nevo sunbathing on a beach. In some of the photos Zhang is topless. Clearly unaware of the paparazzi, the pictures show the two caressing each other. Sources say the beach was the private property of Zhang's millionaire fianc Nevo.
"It is a matter of personal privacy," Zhang's publicist Ji Lingling said in a statement. "Ziyi and her fianc were vacationing on a private beach enjoying a normal part of life." Ji added that the photos were a serious infringement of the couple's privacy.
The actress is now working to have these photos removed from the Internet, but has not yet indicated whether she will file a lawsuit.
