BEIJING, Dec. 19 (Xinhua) — Actress Zhang Ziyi has placed first on a list of the 50 "most beautiful people in China."

The fourth annual event was organized by The Beijing News, which announced the result in its Friday edition.

Zhang, who starred in the films "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" and "Memoirs of a Geisha," was first partly because she organized an overseas fund drive for survivors of the May 12 Sichuan earthquake while attending the Cannes Film Festival, said judge Hai Yan, a playwright and TV producer.

Hong Kong-based Tony Leung Chiu-Wai, a Cannes Film Festival best actor, came in second.

Olympics diving champion Guo Jingjing, martial arts star Jet Li and Li Yuchun, who made her name in a singing contest Super Girl, the Chinese version of American Idol, also made it into the top 50.
