According to Beijing News, an insider confirms that Gong Li has indeed tied the knot with her French electronic music composer boyfriend Jean-Michel Jarre. With that, the good news has been relayed across various media outlets. A staple at the Cannes Festival, Gong Li is due to receive the Women In Motion awards for her contributions to the film industry.
The actress who is highly regarded for her work seems quite private about her personal life in general though she was previously spotted on a date at a shopping mall with her then-boyfriend, now-husband back when she was filming the movie Saturday Fiction. They also recently attended a state dinner in honor of China’s President Xi Jinping at Elysee Palace as a couple.
Gong Li went to meet Jean-Michel Jarre at the airport when he arrived in Cannes early this week. Although they didn’t confirm the news themselves, the two were all smiles and holding hands when they faced the media. Gong Li is 53 while her hubby is 70. I’m not really familiar with her beau, but happy for them just the same. He does not look 70 at all!
