Zhang Ziyi wants to be wild girl

BEIJING, Oct. 20 -- Zhang Ziyi is one of China's hottest movie stars and right now, could pick and choose any role she wanted in the world.

Hollywood producers are falling over themselves to entice the 27-year-old Beijing-born actress into a major US production.

What really interests Zhang Ziyi is playing a wild American girl.

"I'd like to play an American teen, a very modern, typical American girl with a very rebellious character. I don't smoke, I don't drink, but I want to play someone who is really absurd. I think that would be so cool," she told Time magazine.

After starring in Chinese director Feng Xiaogang's big-budget film "The Banquet," she is looking forward to the next film.

Zhang burst into the international film scene with her role in "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" and is now hot property in Hollywood after a series of blockbuster films.

Zhang, 27, said her ultimate dream was to enjoy a simple family life and was even willing to give up acting for the "right person."
