Is Zhang Ziyi Pretty or Not

Zhang Ziyi Catoon
The following poem was written by Tianjin-based poet Li Wei, translated by CDT:

Is Zhang Ziyi pretty or not?
Some say she’s pretty.
Some say she’s not.
Liu Ping in my office says she’s not pretty.
However, Zhang Yimou says she is pretty;
Ang Lee says she is pretty;
Jackie Chan says she is pretty;
Wong Kar-Wai says she is pretty;
Henry Fok Ying-tung’s grandson says she is pretty;
Steven Spielberg says she is pretty;
Now even Feng Xiaogang says she is pretty.
Is Zhang Ziyi pretty or not?
My opinion is
Zhang Ziyi is prettier than Zhang Yimou,
Prettier than Ang Lee,
Prettier than Jackie Chan,
Prettier than Wong Kar-wei,
Prettier than Henry Fok’s grandson,
Prettier than Steven Spielberg,
Even prettier than Feng Xiaogang.
But not as pretty
as Liu Ping in my office.
