There are few things as thrilling as running into your idol. For a fan of Gong Li, his dream came true on May 23 when he bumped into the actress while she was shopping in a luxury store in Paris.
Though Gong Li, who married 72-year-old French composer Jean-Michel Jarre in 2019, was trying to look incognito, she was still recognised by the fan who summoned up his courage to ask the 55-year-old star for a photo. Sadly, she declined his request, saying that her management company doesn’t allow her to snap pics with fans.
Instead, she would give him her autograph, which he happily accepted. He then went online to gush about his experience meeting the actress, at the same time, raving about how beautiful she is in person.
