Brother Sharp still a nervous wreck

Brother Sharp reportedly hid in the toilet for two hours prior to the production launch of the movie 'Legend of Brother Sharp' in Nanchang. Dressed in a white shirt and bow tie, he was accompanied by family members but was struck by stage fright and had to be helped to a seat. The SARFT has not yet approved the movie and Brother Sharp is not expected to participate in the filming itself. (Xinhua)

Zhang Ziyi reached a court settlement in the case with the publication that alleged she was having an affair with a wealthy, married business man. This is the case that led to the 'ink splash-gate' incident where her advert poster in front of a hotel in Beijing was defaced by mystery men. The incident was caught on film when reporters staked out the Park Hyatt waiting for Maggie Cheung. The publication and Ziyi settled upon a court issued mediation agreement. Ziyi did not attend the proceedings. (Xinhua)

Well, you know, I make up all my stories to go with the photos!

Seriously, that's exactly my problem. The photos that accompany the tabloid story that I've seen don't make it clear (to me) who the woman is. She's ID'd as TB Chris but I'm not sure if she's actually in the photos or not. :{
