Zhou Xun made the first move on Nicholas Tse: Report

HONG KONG - Hong Kong actor Nicholas Tse and Chinese actress Zhou Xun have been secretly dating for a year, recent media reports have alleged.

But although both parties have denied the rumours, saying that they are 'just neighbours', Hong Kong's Next magazine reported that it was Zhou who made the first move.

The love affair has garnered interest because their ex-partners are now married to each other. According to Apple Daily, their romance has been likened to a game of romantic musical chairs.

Tse's ex-girlfriend is singer Faye Wong, 43, who is married to Zhou's ex-boyfriend, actor Li Yapeng, 41.

Next magazine added that since the news broke, Tse has moved out of his apartment which is in the same building as Zhou's, to stop the rumour mill from going into overdrive.

But others say it may also be a decision made by the artistes' management companies to protect their image.

According to reports, Tse was introduced to Zhou six years ago by Chinese actor Chen Kun in Beijing, who is good friends with Zhou.

The trio would regularly meet up whenever Tse was in Beijing.

Next cited sources as saying that since the pair regained their single status in recent years, Zhou decided to 'seize the opportunity'.

Said the insider: "During meal times, Zhou would be extra attentive to Tse, everyone around could see it. But Tse would keep his distance to avoid an awkward situation."

Tse's long-time friend, singer Joey Yung, has also been quizzed on the purported romance.

She would only wryly reveal: "Tse loves Mandarin and the Beijing accent; I've met Zhou."

If GongLi has to use her boobs to where she is today, it is because the men apparently appreciate them more than her acting skills.:D
Sadly, this is the way our Asian societies are now quickly developing towards - it's all more about sex.:rolleyes:

Zhou Xun is a much better actor than Nicolas Tse. From what I read of her, she is somewhat like Faye Wong and do not care what others gossip about her - ie she has characters and much self confidence.
But so what if she made the 1st move towards her man ? Isn't this part of chasing your dream ? Why should a gal wait for her man to make the 1st move & risk losing her dream ?
I would love to have my gal make the 1st move too. :D
