12 Aug – Zhang Ziyi successfully beaten her "Hero" co-star, Maggie Cheung, and recently named the wealthiest actress in the Greater China.

As reported on Hunan TV, a ranking of the 10 wealthiest actresses from Hong Kong, mainland China, and Taiwan based on their income from advertisements, music records, films, and media appearances was published.

According to the ranks, Zhang Ziyi was named the wealthiest actress of them all. The Chinese actress, who rose to stardom through Ang Lee's "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" in 2000, has since starred in various other hit movies that include "House Of Flying Daggers" and "Memoirs Of A Geisha", making her annual income RMB 120 million (app. USD 19.6 million).

Meanwhile, the second place goes to early '90s biggest star, Maggie Cheung (RMB 110 million), who only lost to Ziyi because she has been less active in recent years. The same goes to Ziyi's "Memoirs Of A Geisha" co-star Gong Li (RMB 90 million), who has been less prolific these past few years.

Meanwhile, "Bends" actress Carina Lau claimed the fourth spot with RMB 90 million, not only for her movie works, but also her numerous property investments that include high-end dwellings in Beijing and Chongqing.

Ziyi's "Dangerous Liaisons" co-star, Cecilia Cheung came in fifth with RMB 75 million, while first time director, Vicki Zhao placed sixth with RMB 56 million.

Other actresses in the list include actress-producer Ruby Lin in seventh (RMB 45 million), mainland actress-businesswoman Liu Xiaoqing in eighth (RMB 32 million), "Journey To The West" star Shu Qi in ninth with RMB 30 million and Zhou Xun in 10th with RMB 15 million.
