During her promotional event of the upcoming movie Forever Young, superstar Zhang Ziyi replied to the questions raised by her fans.

Speaking about the so-called "streaming stars", referring to pop idols pursuing internet fame instead of focusing on quality performance, Zhang said it's a matter of personal choice.

But she suggested stars should choose scripts that suit them, instead for merely listening to their agents, if money is not the top priority.

As one of the most famous Chinese stars in the West, Zhang has recently starred in two Hollywood blockbusters, God Particle, and Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

But she said, "I've never thought I belong to Hollywood." Zhang added she considers shooting for Hollywood commercial movies comparatively easier, thus giving her more time to be with her daughter nicknamed Xingxing.
