Speculations over whether Gong Li had a secret wedding with her boyfriend, Jean-Michel Jarre, have proven to be true.
According to AsiaOne, insiders have confirmed that the 53-year-old superstar Chinese actress and 70-year-old French composer held a secret wedding. Beijing News reported that the couple were spotted holding hands and looking happy as the actress welcomed Jarre at the airport for the Cannes Film Festival on the night of May 14.

Li attended the Cannes Film Festival to receive the Women in Motion honor. She is the first Chinese actress to receive such a prestigious award, as the report noted. Jarre, meanwhile, was invited by the festival president himself, Pierre Lescure.
The actress, who is set to appear in Disney’s live-action version of “Mulan,” was spotted with her beau in a shopping mall during her filming of the Chinese movie “Saturday Fiction” which is set in the 1940’s.
It is unclear, though, what the actual date was when they tied the knot as insiders did not divulge that piece of information.
