Fan last in social responsibility ranking

Media chinese has, however, released an indiscretion on what happened to the actress Fan Bingbing.

Per THR, a Hong Kong tabloid alleged the star had been seen at a Los Angeles immigration office while Chinese publication Securities Daily claimed in a since-retracted report that Bingbing had been placed "under control" by authorities in China and would "accept the legal decision".

The "yin-yang contract", however, isn't the only reason for Fan's arrest.

But back in China she's a huge star, known recently for films like I Am Not Madame Bovary and League Of Gods. Strangely the report by Securities Daily was deleted just hours later. If it is hard to know the exact details of the charges against Fan Bingbing, certain "economic crimes" in China remain liable to the death penalty.

When Fan was seen on Chinese TV in 2014 with a tube of Blackmores vitamin cream in her handbag, sales of the Australian cream reportedly leapt from 3000 tubes a month to 500,000 a month.

Fan Bingbing is one of the biggest stars in China and has been in the entertainment business for over two decades. The explanation given was that the office is now going through a cleaning and that the workers will soon return.

Fan has been a household name in China for 20 years and tasted Hollywood success in 2014

Fan, the highest-paid Chinese actress and a darling of global red carpets who has expanded her career to Hollywood film roles, scored a shocking zero and was the last on a list of 100 celebrities. Those rumors, however, have never been substantiated.

Cui posted several images on a social media account and said those were copies of different contracts signed by Fan relating to the same job. The magazine cited an array of possible theories, including a tax evasion scandal in China allegedly involving Bingbing. Fan has done so much good work in the past!' One user wrote on the Twitter-like Weibo platform. In June, five government agencies enforced a cap of film star pay, saying that on-screen performers' salaries should be capped at 40 per cent of the total production costs. According to the new regulations, which went into effect on August 1, the tax rates on celebrities has risen to a considerably high 42 percent.

Following Fan's scandal, the Chinese government announced that they would be clamping down on sky-high pay for celebrities. Censors routinely demand changes to content and have also hosted political indoctrination sessions for celebrities.

Even as the Communist Party steps up its push to create a Chinese cultural juggernaut that competes with the United States in "soft power", it has become increasingly uncomfortable with the mass culture it has spawned. According to the directive, lead actors can not be paid more than 70 percent of the cast's total wages.

If there's anyone who personifies China's celebrity culture, Fan is it.
