Fan Bingbing (X-men) disappears from sight.

Does China still send people to work on the Communes? I guess that would be better than a jail cell.

It's dangerous being a celebrity in a Communist country.

Hopefully Bingbing will eventually reappear after her run in with authorities.

Across the country, her face once adorned thousands of advertisements, her star power used to sell a galaxy of luxury brands, from Cartier to Louis Vuitton. She was a regular sight at major award shows and fashion ceremonies. In 2015, Time Magazine named her China's "most famous actress."

But the film star hasn't been seen in public since early June, when, according to a post on her verified social-media account, she went to visit a children's hospital in Tibet.

In an article by state media Securities Daily on September 6, which was later deleted, the publication said Fan had been brought "under control and about to receive legal judgment."

Wikipedia. She's had quite a successful career singing and acting.

Bingbing may be banned from acting for 3 years.

Added parentheses to the title, as it was difficult to parse.

Thank you.

Her role in X-Men: Days of Future Past (playing Blink) is probably the film most people here are familiar with.

I only recognize her name because she'a a fashionista wearing the most stunning gorgeous gowns ever run up in a designer showroom. Funny, all that fame and money isn't doing her much good at the moment, but in China, meat is meat. Money is involved.
