A portrait of "The Crossing" star Zhang Ziyi has been painted by Chinese realist painter Yu Hong for the American jeweller Tiffany & Co, Blouin Art Info reported.

As part of a new series of portraits commissioned by the American jeweler that will be shown after a few months, the portrait shows Zhang wearing a delicate Tiffany & Co signature key pendant.

In a YouTube video, Zhang and Yu discussed having a key as a symbol of unlocking possibilities. Watch the video here:

Having previously commissioned Chinese composer Tan Dun to compose a piece inspired by the Tiffany 128-karat yellow diamond, Tiffany & Co has yet to reveal details of the other collaborations.

Prior to this jewelry endorsement, Zhang attended the 67th Cannes Film Festival with her co-stars Takeshi Kaneshiro and Tong Dawei for the debut of their new movie "The Crossing," English CCTV reported.

Directed by John Woo, "The Crossing" is about three couples whose destinies are directly related to the events unfolding in China during the civil war in the 1940s.

"The Crossing" is described as Woo's "passion project," which moves him to tears.

"I saw him crying, and I said 'what happened?' And he said 'I'm speechless and you guys are great'. So at that moment I cried. For him to cry is not that easy because he knows the character, he knows the story, but somehow it's still touching him, which is good and really makes me happy, making John cry," Zhang said.

According to Woo, every actor and actress in "The Crossing" "gave a great performance."

"And very emotional, so very touching. So by watching them beside a camera, they always make me cry," Woo said.

Meanwhile, Zhang recently attended the closing ceremony of the 28th Cabourg Film Festival in Cabourg, France, where she was awarded an honorary Swan . With matching red lipstick, the 35-year-old Chinese actress wore a crimson Elie Saab Resort 2014 on the red carpet, Premiere reported.
