Fan, who is known in the West for playing Blink in X-Men: Days of Future Past and appearing in I Am Not Madame Bovary, has been at the centre of swirling rumours involving a flit to the USA and being placed "under control" by the Chinese authorities due to her unexplained absence. Forbes has listed the actor, singer, and model among the highest-paid Chinese celebrities every year since 2013.
Fan, 36, is one of the biggest stars in China, and in a career spanning more than two decades has become a ubiquitous sight on advertisements hawking luxury brands such as Cartier and Mercedes-Benz.
Her disappearance from the general public look for has ended in rumours about her jam. Issue-lunge Chinese language publication Securities Everyday ran a portion earlier this month that Fan had been "placed under assist an eye fixed on" and could maybe maybe merely "get appropriate judgment".
Other news outlets have for months speculated on Fan's whereabouts, and rumours circulated that she was living under house arrest, according to The Epoch Times, a USA newspaper focusing on China.
Reports are also mentioning a recently released 2017-2018 China Film and Television Star Social Responsibility Report, which, according to the BBC, ranks Chinese celebrities according to "professional work, charitable actions and personal integrity".
A list of the rankings from the report published by state media outlet China Daily showed Bingbing received a score of 0 per cent. "Fan has done so much good work in the past!" one user wrote on the Twitter-like Weibo platform.
The reports do not say whether Fan is forbidden from acting only in China or also overseas.
Her disappearance came after Cui Yongyuan, a former TV host with the state-owned China Central Television, suggested that the actress had signed secret contracts with a Chinese entertainment company to avoid paying taxes.
China's best-paid film star, Fan Bingbing, has been given zero per cent "Social Responsibility" rating by Chinese authorities after she went missing recently. Fan has denied wrongdoing and a representative for her studio could not be reached for comment. Her name was also stripped out of publicity in China for the film Unbreakable Spirit, in which she co-stars with Bruce Willis, due to open next month.
"Yin and Yang contracts mean one contract is submitted to the tax department", Mr Yong said.
Chinese actress Fan Bingbing is set to co-star in the upcoming thriller 355 alongside Jessica Chastain, Penelope Cruz and Lupita Nyong'o, but that's assuming they're able to locate her. A directive from propaganda authorities following the allegations against Fan ordered websites to "hold back" on publishing content on the practice.
