Fake Donations-Gate Updates, a very complicated affair: The promised deadline for a full accounting of Zhang Ziyi's foundation account have come and passed. Zhang's agent, normally responsive, has not been returning text messages inquiring about an explanation...Reportedly, initial donations of US$2M to Zhang Ziyi's foundation were funnelled to her private account..Other celebrity names have been drawn into the fake donations net, Zhou Xun and Zhao Wei, etc...An online Chinese Red Cross search of contributions show Zhou Xun contributed only 300 yuan. This was attributed to being a contribution made by a similar name.. In Zhang's favor, a citizen reported to anewspaper hotline that he knew where the individual contributions went. Several stars among them Chen Kun, Zhang Ziyi and Zhao Wei helped rebuild a collapsed school for the deaf, but after a records search the total donated by Zhang Ziyi only accounted for 840,000 yuan. Today, Zhou Xun's agent announced that Zhou Xun as UN Goodwill Ambassador had made an undisclosed contribution to a UN designated account for Haitian disaster relief. This has been dubbed a 'fraud tax'. (Xinhua) (2)

Hmmm... cigarettes are conspicuously absent from the posters for Love in a Puff. Hopefully, there will be lots of glamorized smoking in the film. ;p

Looking forward to seeing it!

This one totally flew under my radar. I hadn't seen anything on this before. I hope it stays a Cat.III film. :D

Miriam and Shawn seem to be a good pairing, too
