Via Channel NewsAsia: “China’s highest paid movie star Fan Bingbing … has not been seen in public since July …. The 36-year-old actress has been a household name in China for years and tasted Hollywood success with a role in the 2014 blockbuster ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’. *** But she has gone quiet in recent months, following allegations of tax evasion.
“In [a] report by Beijing Normal University published earlier this month, 100 Chinese stars including popular actor Jackie Chan and award-winning actress Zhang Ziyi were ranked according to their professional work, charity work, and personal integrity. But with a pass requiring a score of more than 60 per cent, only nine celebrities made the cut, with Chinese actor Xu Zheng topping the list at 78.
“[Ms Bingbing] had a score of zero.” (Hat tip: Tyler Cowen.)
