Yes, there are still 987 more years in this particular millennium. But we’ve already made up our minds. We’re saying right now: This is one of the top three hottest millennia ever. And we’ve already decided who the all-stars are. Yes, we’re talking about Beyoncé, but we’re not just talking about Beyoncé. We’re talking the century of Mila Kunis, the historically significant period of the Ladies of Friday Night Lights, the era when Marisa Tomei showed us how hot 44 was and Megan Fox showed us how hot talking-robot alien cars were. Just think, in the 1900s we didn’t even know what a sext was (thanks, Scarlett!), we’d never heard of Kate Upton or the Dougie, or the beautiful music they could make together. So, sure, it’s still early, but it’s not too early to obsessively catalogue GQ’s hottest women of the 2000s.
Zhang Ziyi (章子怡) is listed among the “100 Hottest Women of the 21st Century” by GQ magazine.
The 33-year-old actress is the only Chinese celebrity on the list.
She shares the honor with the United States’ First Lady Michelle Obama, the newly crowned Golden Globe best actress Jennifer Lawrence, Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, Megan Fox and other A-listers.
In China, Ziyi is not so highly regarded, partly because she’s seen as of average looks, partly because she’s seen as a controversial and unpleasant person.
She’s been linked with many billionaires, often at the same time; has fallen out with former friends; and was accused of keeping charity money for herself.
Zhang Ziyi, sometimes credited as Ziyi Zhang, is a Chinese film actress and model. Chinese media have called her one of the Four Young Dan Actresses in China’s film industry, along with Zhao Wei, Xu Jinglei and Zhou Xun. Wikipedia

Zhang Ziyi started acting at the age of 19 years when she was offered her first role in a movie. She gained worldwide recognition when she won several awards for her role in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. With her popularity she starred in a few Hollywood movies such as Rush Hour 2, House of Flying Daggers, and Memoirs of a Geisha.
Zhang Ziyi is perhaps one of the most famous Asian actress to have such amazing success in Hollywood. With such talent and beauty, her stardom is not that much of a shock. Even with though with the language barrier, I think her transition to Hollywood was pretty good. She also ages very, very well.
