- A lot of my friends asked, 'What's it like working with Jude Law? He's so handsome!' I said, 'Well, I'm lucky; I got to kick his butt.'

- I had heard about how people struggle and how hard it is to get into acting. But I did not care because it's something I love.

- But somehow I feel like still it's a gift, and I wonder, how can I give this gift to others? Just work hard, and do whatever I can do, to be that, and to return the love to the fans. I like to give them joy and smiles to them. Give back to them.

- English is my second language, but in Hong Kong, they don't know that I'm from China. They think I'm from Hollywood because all the films they see are from here. China and Hong Kong are very different places, but they're starting to merge. Still the culture is very different.

- I also like to follow nature's rhythm. In times or places, they have their own rhythm. So you cannot push it. So we must accept that as well. Wherever we're born at this time, we just live it.

- I came from the air. I came from the moon. I just landed. Traveling, it's a constant in my life. Sometimes I feel like I'm naturally high because of this lifestyle. Sometimes I really feel like I'm the air or on the moon, and that's that. Of course, I originally came from China.

- I don't really judge what should be or what shouldn't be. I'm very much against that, because in China we had all the rules. As a child you have your grandparents, your parents, your teachers... I was in the army. I was in the Tibet army for three years when I was 14... Therefore, I'm very much against those rules in society... I think they limit you.

- I often feel like I have this spirit living inside of me, always dressing in like short mini skirts... but then I start to discover myself. So there are eight spirits, mischievous ones, sad ones, handsome ones, wise ones, and crazy ones.

- I think sometimes I'm more fond of doing the research for the character because you learn so much. Sometimes shooting is really difficult because you wake up early and you're always hurrying. And sometimes I don't know what I'm doing. I'm here and there.

- I was in Asia and people asked me about being considered sex symbol. I don't know if that's good or not, because where I come from, sex isn't something you're allowed to talk about.

- I worked with a wild leopard, who bit me. But I kept on working with him, because I have a wild side. I think I was an animal in a previous life.

- I'm a person that doesn't have that many goals or plans. I feel like I'm the wind and I blow through life; it's whatever comes to me. I very much respect nature. Whatever happens to me, I'm happy and I embrace it.

- I'm very private in person. I'm very sensitive and shy with men individually. But when I'm talking, maybe there's this other channel or this other side and other way of working in my mind, and I convert and become carefree.

- If I don't make movies, I'm okay too. I'll write books. I'll just sit here and watch the world go by. I'll feel comfortable.

- Spike Lee always keeps a distance with actors. He's not always joking around; a lot of directors joke around to get close to the actor. He has a different style. You never know what he's thinking, and you're kind of nervous. When you're nervous, you're more devoted because you want to be good.

- We're all sisters and brothers. So like color and those issues now, if we dealt with it much, much less, the world would be much more beautiful.

- Yeah, well my name is Bai Ling. That means white spirit, and I really feel like sometimes I'm not existing.
