I like this quote:
"A one-night stand and a lifetime commitment are the same," Ling said. "Because you don't have the control of the destiny of how long a relationship can be, you don't even know how long your life is going to be. So whoever makes you feel this love and this romance, you're lucky, no matter how long --
24 hours, a month, a year, a lifetime. I think there's a lot of beauty in different men; you cannot see just one man, one soul mate. So it's hard to choose. ... Ultimately, there is one. But it's not time for me yet.
When you're in the entertainment business, it's hard to have a serious relationship. Sometimes, when I'm tired and lonely, tough questions come to me, and you feel like you really want someone to hold you. And it's something I really want to have. You need another half to make a whole. But life's fantastic right now. I have freedom. So, before I get married, I should enjoy it!"
I'm sure she's a talented actress and a nice person, but some of the roles she's taken and the persona has really perpetuates many of the "dragon lady exotic Asian female" steroetypes.
I just saw her on the HBO show Entourage playing a kung fu expert who hops in bed (on the gym mat, actually) with the lead character in the show after 10 minutes.
I'm not saying Asian women can't play roles like this, but there's an imbalance with more "normal" roles and, of course, Asian American men are nowhere to be found in any role.
