After receiving the biggest Grouch Award for his reaction to missing out on the Best Actor Award at Cannes to 14-year-old Yuuya Yagira, Tony Leung Chiu-wai is finally getting some respect. From fan John Powers of LA Weekly anyway, who voted him one of the world's best actors. He says that 2046 by director Wong Kar-wai (below, posing for CitySeen) 'provided the sheer pleasure of watching Tony Leung, who moves with perfect grace, uses the camera to capture the most delicate effects, and (take note, Sean Penn) understands that the most powerful gestures are often the quietest: He turns [the] tiniest smile into a lethal weapon. Not only does Leung have the chameleon genius of a great character actor - you should race online to get a DVD of his dazzling work in Infernal Affairs - he's one of the world's greatest movie stars'. But he blasted Cannes for naming Maggie Cheung as Best Actress for Clean, 'though she wasn't nearly as good as Zhang Ziyi'. CitySeen spoke to Cheung at Cannes (left) and was happy to find her every bit as sweet as she is on the big screen. When asked if she has officially defected from Hong Kong, she replied: 'I need Hong Kong as much as it needs me. I try to go back as often as I can. I hope people do not forget me.' She then went on to say that she is planning a move to London, telling my friend Divya Gopalan, who is based there: 'If you see me walking on Oxford Street, please say hi. It would be nice to see a familiar face.' Sweet, indeed.
