Why He’s a Babe: Because even when playing a mama’s boy, as he did in Zhang Yimou’s Curse of the Golden Flower, Liu still steams up the screen. And with those sad eyes, pouty lips, and that deep aura of melancholy, he reminds us of a young Tony Leung.
Liu Ye stars next with Meryl Streep and Aidan Quinn in Dark Matter, opening this Friday.
