It's not every day that one of Hollywood's leading men picks you out from the crowd and proceeds to flirt with you. But that is what happened to stunning TVB Entertainment News anchor Zurine Cheng Wing-sum at Will Smith's press conference for his new film, I Am Legend - and the coverage has since been picked up by jealous bloggers across the world. For the last question, he bounded off the stage and made a beeline straight for Cheng.

'It was flattering, sure,' the former Miss Hong Kong contestant said yesterday. Her question was whether it felt strange making a movie with only a dog as a companion. 'Interviewing Will Smith is the most memorable experience I've had so far. Especially because I've been a big fan of his since the television show, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.'

Once he answered the question, Smith told the presenter she was 'very beautiful' and made pretend 'I'll call you' hand signals as he returned to the stage.

Cheng said the star never called but many of the important types in her company did. 'Everyone was really pleased for me,' she said.

Since many have asked, we felt it was our duty to reveal the girl who caught the superstar's eye.
