Happy birthday Ziyi Zhang and Emma Roberts!

Not only is she starring in The Grandmasters, which revolves around the life of Bruce Lee’s martial arts trainer, Ip Man, she’s also set to star in Dangerous Liaisons and Love and Let Love. But Zhang never intended to become an actress. When she was younger she trained as a dancer and from the Beijing Dance Academy. And while she may not have a very large presence in Hollywood, in Asia, the Chinese actress is all over the place. She’s been featured in ads for Maybelline, Pantene, Coca Cola, Tag Heur watches, Lenovo Computers, and Korean mineral water 2%.
Emma Roberts, 21

The rising starlet has starred in films like It’s a Funny Story with Zach Galifianakis, The Art of Getting By and Scream 4. And she’s only getting more credibility as an actress. Roberts’s latest project, indie film Celeste and Jesse Forever, received rave reviews at this year’s Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. She’ll also star in Adult World later this year and untitled Derick Martini film with Craig Roberts. The former Nickelodeon star also recently made headlines after rumors that she and Glee boyfriend Chord Overstreet broke up hit airwaves.
