Wow, what a difference nine months and the biggest tax fine ever makes to the entire aura of a person. Formerly China’s top actress (by far and totally unchallenged) Fan Bing Bing made her first public post on her Weibo account this week, on Monday right before lunar new year to wish everyone a happy and healthy new year. The post was accompanied with two selfies of a very lightly made up face, looks like lip gloss only, and with her hair simply parted. Anyone who has followed Fan Bing Bing can see that she looks thinner and also very very wan, but who can blame her after paying nearly $70 million US dollars equivalent in RMB tax fine for evasion and being banned by the Chinese authorities from her entertainment career. Of all the crimes that typically befall a star, from drunk driving to domestic violence to sexual assault and even involuntary manslaughter, Fan Bing Bing’s entire tax evasion scandal shows that she owned up to it and paid full restitution. At this point if she wants to come up I don’t see why not but it’s clear she’ll never regain her top goddess spot again. But new year new beginnings, hopefully she’s got her future mapped out.
