Actress Bai Ling returns to China, provokes outrage in documentary, Entertainment News & Top Stories

BEIJING (NYTimes) – Nearly 20 years after government officials barred Bai Ling from returning to China, the Chinese-born Hollywood actress has once again found herself at the tense intersection of entertainment and nationalism.

A new television documentary series commemorating the Long March, a pivotal event in Communist Party history, has instead provoked public outrage for featuring Bai, who is seen by some as anti-China, in one episode.

After the uproar last week, CCTV, the state broadcaster that produced the series, removed the offending episode from its websites and reposted a new version without the scenes featuring Bai.

“I am deeply sorry for all those things in my past that friends on the internet have brought up,” Bai, 50, wrote in a lengthy open letter posted last week on Weibo, China’s version of Twitter. “From now on I want all of you to see a brand new Bai Ling, a Bai Ling who is full of positive energy, a Chinese Bai Ling.”

“I will bring the wonderful and beautiful culture of our motherland to Hollywood and to the whole world!” she added.

She is the latest in a growing list of entertainers who have been pilloried in China for holding “incorrect” political views. Many, like Bai, have issued public apologies, fearing the consequences of losing access to one of the world’s biggest markets.

This time around, some online commenters cited Bai’s role in the 1997 movie Red Corner, in which she played a Chinese defence attorney who helps an American framed for murder (played by Richard Gere) navigate China’s corrupt legal system. (Bai has also spoken out about sexual abuse she said she endured as an entertainer for the People’s Liberation Army in Tibet.) Soon after Red Corner was released, it was banned in China, and Bai was prohibited from returning to see her family.

“I was in tears,” she told Paper Magazine in 2004 regarding the ban. “I couldn’t sleep. I requested a meeting with the government, and I wrote an apology letter. I solved my problems.”

Years later, she is apologising again.

“I love China, and I love Chinese culture,” she said last week in her letter, which was written in Chinese. “I always say that every bit of goodness and wisdom in my body comes from Chinese culture and what growing up in the land has given me.”

Her letter came just days after CCTV debuted the eight-part series, called Long March Shakes The World. The documentary is one of many programmes that have been released this year to commemorate what China considers the 80th anniversary of the end of the Long March, the fabled trek across China by embattled Chinese communists as they fled Chiang Kai-shek’s advancing Nationalist troops.

Bai, also known for her work in films like The Crow (1994) and Nixon (1995), was originally featured in the sixth episode of the series.

During the course of filming, she is said to have spent about a month retracing the route of the Long March – a journey that she closely documented on her social media accounts. In photos posted online, she is seen wearing a light-blue Red Army uniform and braids.

Videos on her social media accounts show her singing with schoolchildren in Sichuan province and making traditional sticky rice in the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region.

In one photo, she is dressed in a red-and-white sleeveless jumpsuit, leaning seductively in the doorway of Mao Zedong’s former residence in Yan’an.

“You are not suited to perform in the Long March,” one person wrote on Weibo. “Even though you are not at fault given freedom of speech, good actors have to take positions.” A post by another user said, “Don’t come to my country, you disgusting person. Get out!” The sentiment was echoed by many others.

A commentary published last week in Global Times, a nationalist-leaning newspaper, cited Bai’s “many vulgar nude photographs” and her arrest in 2008 for shoplifting two magazines and a pack of batteries at Los Angeles International Airport as additional reasons Chinese have a “very negative impression” of her.

“The Long March is sacred in everyone’s hearts,” said the commentary, which was written under a pen name usually used by Hu Xijin, the newspaper’s chief editor. “Everyone thinks that to have Bai Ling put on a female Red Army outfit to play a small role is to blaspheme this great historical event.” The commentary sought to tamp down the public uproar, calling CCTV’s decision to cast Bai a “slip-up”. Still, it continued, the overall message was clear: “This incident is yet another warning that mainland Chinese audiences are gradually forming specific political requirements, particularly in regards to ‘problematic’ entertainers. The people now have higher standards for moral behaviour and political positions.”

Actress Julia Ling Stars in New Comedy Webseries Tactical Girl

Julia Ling trains in archery to prepare for her role as “Tactical Girl” on the new comedy web series.

She is as lethal as she is pretty; easy on the eyes, brutal to her enemies, and she can actually field-strip more than a flash light.


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB)
February 17, 2017

Silver Rose Entertainment, Inc. (SREstudios.com) has teamed up with FilmGrouch.com creator Rick Swift to bring the character Tactical Girl to life. She is as lethal as she is pretty; easy on the eyes, brutal to her enemies, and she can actually field-strip more than a flash light.

The comedy series follows Tactical Girl (or TG), played by Julia Ling, as she faces the civilian world from a strategic and calculated perspective. Julia, best known as fan favorite Anna Wu on NBC’s “Chuck,” is more than capable of taking on the physically demanding role.

“Julia does more than just play the part,” says SRE Studios producer Micah Haughey. “She embodies it. She’ll hike with a 100-pound pack in the pouring rain or crawl through the mud – and she stays motivated through it all.”

Everything that Tactical Girl does “has to be tactically correct,” says Ling. This requires her to take the time to study and train for every aspect of the character. It’s a challenge she relishes. According to Ling, “It doesn’t matter how tired you are, how much everything hurts. You get back up, and you never quit.”

She brings the same fierce determination to her work behind the camera as a writer and producer on the series. Haughey notes, “Whether it’s training or producing, she’s not afraid to jump in and get her hands dirty, and she puts her team first.”

Tactical Girl can disassemble and reassemble her 9mm with her eyes closed and build an AR-15 from scratch. But her weapon of choice is her trusty bow. Not one to tackle anything lightly, Ling enlisted NTS Level 3 archery coach Laurence Mo to train her for both the series and competition. Mo noticed how quickly Ling picked up the sport, “Julia is one of the most dedicated and hardworking archers I’ve ever met. Excellent elbow alignment from day one. I can see a bright future in her archery career.”

The series blends comedy from the world of uniformed personnel (police, firefighters, EMTs, military) and normal civilian life. Swift, series co-creator, draws from his time in the United States Marine Corps for some of the funniest material.

“I remember watching Full Metal Jacket with my dad and laughing at the DI. I asked him how you keep from laughing, and he said, ‘easy, it isn’t funny when it’s happening to you.’ I think that’s always stuck with me, how ridiculous some of the situations are and how ripe for comedy military life is. It’s my hope we capture some of that insanity and it gets a few chuckles from those who serve or have served.”

Rather than the standard narrative format, Tactical Girl is modeled after stand-alone sketches like the Digital Shorts from Saturday Night Live. The series currently airs on YouTube at YouTube.com/TacticalGirl.

ABOUT JULIA LING

Most notable for her work on prime time television, Julia Ling starred as the popular “nerd-herder” Anna Wu on Chuck and Kim Tao in Studio 60. She has directed and produced many commercials and independent films. You can see her full list of credits at imdb.me/julialing.

Bai Ling Reveals Dark Memories of Chinese Army – NBC Los Angeles

Actress Bai Ling said she is confronting a dark chapter from her past: sexual abuse she suffered as a teenager at the hands of Chinese army officers.

Bai, 44, who was a soldier in a People’s Liberation Army performance troupe from age 14 to 17, told The Associated Press in a recent interview that she was “opening a wound that was very secret to myself, that even my parents don’t know.”

Therapy she received during a U.S. reality TV series helped her understand what she endured in the 1980s and the psychological marks it left on her, Bai said.

She was pressed to have sex with her superiors, with one encounter leading to pregnancy and an abortion under an assumed name, Bai said, adding that other women serving with her in Tibet were also forced into sex and regularly plied with alcohol.

Bai stressed that she blames individual officers and not the Chinese government for events that have haunted her life and work.

The actress (“The Crow,” ”Red Corner,” TV’s “Entourage”) said she worries about how her revelations on Vh2’s “Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew” will be received. The show, which airs Sunday, is in its fifth season.

“The only comfort is that I’m using this platform to help others. I know that my story is so powerful and honest and so simple,” Bai said. “Even if I can help one child and make them feel they haven’t been forgotten, that’s the only comfort I have.”

Bai “did go through something terrible and was able to access it and deal with it,” said Dr. John Sharp, part of the “Celebrity Rehab” treatment team this season. He is a faculty member at Harvard Medical School and a practicing psychiatrist.

She had deflected memories of “these men who were sexually abusing her” so she wouldn’t fall apart psychologically, Sharp said. “But when she got in to a safe place … she was able to admit to herself what she’d been dealing with.”

Until now, Bai said, she didn’t even perceive her treatment by her army superiors as abuse: “Because of the Chinese culture of obedience, you don’t ask questions. … You follow and obey.”

Her career and life have suffered because of the unaddressed torment of her army experience, she said. The actress has become known for eyebrow-raising remarks (she claims she is from the moon), a 2008 shoplifting allegation and wild, alcohol-fueled behavior — including flashes of nudity — that has made her a paparazzi target.

Anyone who has a drug or alcohol problem “was abused in some way and trying to hide,” said Bai, who is writing a book about her youth, “Naked in Tibet.”

She doesn’t consider herself an alcoholic, instead she contends she is allergic to even small amounts of drink. As she talked, Bai referred to herself with unguarded, sweepingly dramatic descriptions. At times, she was tearful.

“I accidentally or innocently destroyed the beautiful Bai Ling that everybody loved, that beautiful, talented actress. Instead, the media bring me out as this crazy slut showing her nipples everywhere,” she said. “I become this character the pop culture Hollywood machine created. Somehow, I become a victim to that image.”

Bai said she decided to appear on “Celebrity Rehab” because of repeated entreaties by the show’s producers. Others featured in the latest edition include former baseball player Dwight Gooden and actress Sean Young.

Within a three-month period this year, onetime participants “Grease” star Jeff Conaway and ex-Alice in Chains bassist Mike Starr died, putting the show under a cloud. Host Drew Pinsky blamed Conaway’s death on doctors’ overprescription of pain pills.

Bai said she appreciates the help she received through the show yet is “terrified” of public reaction to her candor. She’s not drinking, Bai said, but is still struggling emotionally.

Her solace, she said, is that her story might “touch people’s hearts” and help others.

To Many in China, Bai Ling’s Role in Documentary Is a Step Too Far

BEIJING — Nearly 20 years after government officials barred Bai Ling from returning to China, the Chinese-born Hollywood actress has once again found herself at the tense intersection of entertainment and nationalism.

A new television documentary series commemorating the Long March, a pivotal event in Communist Party history, has instead provoked public outrage for featuring Ms. Bai, who is seen by some as anti-China, in one episode.

Inside Hattie McDaniel’s Rumored Affair with ‘Lesbian’ Actress Even after Her 4 Marriages

Hattie McDaniel lived an eventful life, having been the first woman of color ever to win an Oscar. However, one rumor that plagued her for years was her alleged affair with Tallulah Bankhead. 

For her role in 1939’s “Gone with the Wind,” Hattie McDaniel became the first African American to win an Oscar. She left such a great legacy, opening the doors for her fellow people of color in Hollywood. 

In Ryan Murphy’s “Hollywood,” the lives of the industry’s closeted movie stars are discussed. There, McDaniel, played by Queen Latifah, was in a relationship with Tallulah Bankhead, played by Paget Brewster. 

THEIR LIVES IN “HOLLYWOOD”

Their episode showed the alleged couple all cozied up in McDaniel’s house, chatting about their fling with one of Scotty Bowers’ employees. In the show, their relationship was a fact and not fiction. 

Like what the show portrayed, McDaniel and Bankhead’s relationship was a rumor that lasted for years. The pair never confirmed nor denied it, so it was difficult to pin down just when it all started. 

However, the show did not necessarily portray what happened in reality. In 1940, McDaniel was banned from the premiere of “Gone with the Wind” as it was played at an all-white theater. 

She was rejected by the NAACP because they felt the roles she played were racist stereotypes of people of color.

But in “Hollywood,” Murphy made sure to welcome her into the historical ceremony. Speaking about his decision to do that, he said: 

“It was an emotional thing to give them the happy ending that they had been denied.” 

McDaniel’s career started when she figured out she wanted to become an actress at 6. She was born in Wichita, Kansas, as the 13th child of former slaves. In Denver, where she was raised, she discovered her love for performing, particularly singing and dancing. 

At 15, she dropped out of high school to pursue her dream. She started touring with her brother’s carnival company and created a women’s minstrel show called McDaniel Sisters Company.

Before her big break, she ventured into the radio business before joining George Morrison’s Melody Hounds, a touring jazz orchestra. It was the orchestra that put her under the spotlight, leading her to Hollywood in 1931. 

Like many at the time, McDaniel’s roles would often see her as a maid. In total, she played 74 servant roles throughout her career. She starred with Shirley Temple in “The Little Colonel” and formed a friendship with Clark Gable on “China Seas.”

McDaniel is best known as head servant Mammy on “Gone with the Wind” with Butterfly McQueen. She was suggested for the role by Bing Crosby, and it would end up winning her an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. 

Her win was a historic one for people of color. The Oscars took place at the Coconut Grove nightclub in The Ambassador Hotel, which at the time didn’t allow Black patrons.

However, “Gone with the Wind” producer David O. Selznick made a special request for her to be let into the building. While she had to sit at a table away from her co-stars, it didn’t matter because she was being honored. 

 

Speaking about the win, McDaniel said it made her “own people” happy. At the time, it was as if Hollywood was honoring their entire race. She said: 

“This was too big a moment for my personal back-slapping. I wanted this occasion to prove an inspiration to Negro youth for many years to come.”

Despite her historic place in history, McDaniel was rejected by the NAACP because they felt the roles she played were racist stereotypes of people of color. They especially did so because of “Gone with the Wind,” which featured racial slurs out in the open. 

Ultimately, she defended herself by saying she would persuade directors to omit dialect deemed disrespectful. She added that her critics think the public is “more naive than it is.”

HER PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS

McDaniel was married four times, losing her first husband to pneumonia, while the other three ended in divorce. She did not have children in any of her marriages. 

While she was married, a rumor that once circulated Hollywood for years was her alleged relationship with Bankhead, who was once the most famous actress on London’s West End, the British equivalent of Broadway. 

Bankhead ventured into Hollywood, starring in hits like “Devil and the Deep” in 1932. Her Hollywood career didn’t do any justice to her talent, so she went back to Broadway. 

However, while her Hollywood career was uneventful, she was known for being a socialite. She was a heavy drinker and often chain-smoked in events, even having a habit of taking her clothes off and talking to people in the nude. 

At one point, Bankhead made a public proclamation, saying: “Hattie McDaniel is my best friend!” This started a decades-long rumor that there was an affair between them. 

Although their relationship was never confirmed, it was the subject of several projects, such as the books “The Sewing Circle” and “The Girls: Sappho Goes to Hollywood.” In 2000, a musical was made about them, titled “Tallulah and Hattie: Dead at the Pearly Gates Cafe.” 

In 1952, McDaniel passed away after a battle with breast cancer. She threw a “deathbed party,” which had people drinking and laughing. She also left specific instructions for her funeral, writing:

“I desire a white casket and a white shroud; white gardenias in my hair and in my hands, together with a white gard­enia blanket and a pillow of red roses.”

Although McDaniels wanted to be buried at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, it was at the time, for whites only. She was buried at the Angelus-Rosedale Cemetery instead, but a memorial was built for her in Hollywood Forever in 1999. 

Meanwhile, Bankhead died in 1968 after battling pneumonia. She was best known for using the term “dah-ling,” and it’s something that people continue to remember her by. 

She is remembered as a free-spirited and extremely unpredictable actress, with quite a few rumors following her everywhere when she was alive. She was born in a conservative political family, yet she sought love affairs from women like McDaniel and others like Greta Garbo and Patsy Kelly.

Bai Ling was born on October 10, 1966 in Chengdu, southern China. The Chinese woman had to go a long way to the heights of Hollywood, which began with a choral circle in her native school, where the 14-year-old beauty went, tormented by a thirst for fame and performance. Bai was not at all a quiet chorus, but, on the contrary, was distinguished by her love of freedom and independence. From a young age, she defended her ideas and dreams.

At 18, Bai Ling made her film debut with a small role in the film Hai tan (1984).Then she appeared in several more Chinese tapes. Soon, Bai Ling decided on an outright adventure – the actress enlisted in the Chinese People’s Liberation Army and went to Tibet with it. Of course, Lin did not fight, but entertained the soldiers with scenes and various performances in a detachment specially designed for this. So a young Chinese woman spent three years in Tibet.

Upon returning, Bai Ling entered the local theater in Beijing and resumed her film career. She became famous in her homeland for the role of a mentally ill girl in one of the Chinese dramas.However, a career that was starting to develop at a fast pace was immediately cut short. It so happened that the actress was recorded as a dissident. This is because she became a participant in the protest of the pro-Democratic party, as a result of which, in a tense 1991, she had to emigrate to America. However, forced emigration turned out to be a lucky ticket for her to the great Hollywood future. Bai Ling first settled in New York. There, a 25-year-old Chinese woman successfully graduated from the film school of New York University.After which she moved to Hollywood and soon made her way into high-budget tapes. Her first English-language role was a negative character in The Crow (1994), which drew the attention of directors and producers to the talented and effective Chinese actress. She began to flicker more often in films and TV shows (“The Secrets of Cosby”, “Touched by an Angel”, “Nixon”).

She first became famous for her work in the Hollywood action movie “Red Corner” (1997), where Lin appeared as a court-appointed lawyer defending a hero who was accused of a brutal murder committed during a business trip to China.The actress’s partner in the film and the performer of the role of the accused was Richard Gere himself, which instantly attracted public attention both to the action movie in general and to the person of Bai Ling. The strong acting duo was noticed by both critics and viewers. For Lin, this was a real breakthrough. Interestingly, in 1997, the 31-year-old actress was ranked among the 50 most beautiful people in the world according to People magazine. She then appeared in many famous and not so famous paintings.

So, she played in the historical drama “Anna and the King” (1999), for the role in which, by the way, she had to shave her head.Then there were works in the tapes “Spawn” (2001), “Hacker” (2002), “Flashpoint” (2002), “Paris” (2003), “Young Dads” (2003), “Country of Hope” (2004), Dumplings (2004), Kings of Dogtown (2005), Live or Die (2007), The Girl from Shanghai (2007).

Particularly striking works of the actress were the roles in the box office tapes, for example, in the famous film “Taxi 3” (2003), she played the Parisian mafioso. For this role, the Chinese woman mastered French in three weeks. In the movie “Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow” (2004), Lin played alongside such movie stars as Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie.

In collaboration with 11 Honoré

Retailer

Writer and actress Lina Dunham has launched a plus-size clothing line in collaboration with retailer 11 Honoré.Each of the 5 pieces in the collection is named after a different location in Soho, the part of Manhattan where Dunham spent her childhood in the 1980s and 1990s.

In an interview with The New York Times, Dunham admitted that her main goal was to counter the negative perception of the human body of any size. “There are so many judgments about large bodies, and one of these judgments is that fat women are dumber,” says Lina. – If a thin girl wears sweatpants, it’s pretty cute – something like “I’m having a hard day!”But for a chubby girl, it means: “You gave up and made a choice in favor of your lifestyle.” Therefore, there are no tracksuits in the line. Instead, the actress suggests wearing miniskirts, abstract-print dresses, shirts and blazers.

Lina Dunham’s collection is already available for purchase on the 11 Honoré website. Item prices range from £ 70 to £ 250.

90,000 10 facts you didn’t know about the actress

Did you know that Lina Headey …

British

Born in Hamilton, the capital of Bermuda, Great Britain, into a simple working-class family. When she was five years old, the family moved to Britain, first to Somerset and then to the village of Kirkhiton in Northumberland.Parents sent the girl to public speaking courses so that she could learn to speak “like a lady.” But in dealing with the local punks, the features of etiquette did not come in handy – once some boy, in an attempt to attract attention, even hit little Lina on the head with a cricket bat.

Indifferent to fame

Despite the fact that Lina often plays the role of self-confident, and sometimes tough women, in real life she is quite shy. Lina has said more than once that in the acting profession she is satisfied with everything except publicity.

Sportswoman

At 47, Lina looks like many younger ladies envy. What is her secret? It’s simple: yoga and boxing. She began yoga at age 20 when she read the writings of Pema Chodron, the first Western woman to become a Buddhist monk. The second hobby came in handy when she starred in the series “Terminator: Battle for the Future” – the image of Sarah Connor demanded the role of strong muscles from the performer. By the way, in the classroom she sparred with a partner from Russia named Angelina, who, as Lina recalls, “sprinkled her like a rag.”

Vegetarian

Lina has played cold and even heartless heroines more than once, but in life she is the complete opposite of her characters. Her passion for Buddhism and meditation led to the fact that many years ago she gave up meat and switched to plant foods. Interestingly, by the way, Headey’s Game of Thrones colleagues Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) and Jerome Flynn (Bronn) do not eat animal food. By the way, Lena Headey had an affair with the latter in 2002-2003, but whether they agreed on the basis of vegetarianism or had other motives, history is silent.Cast of the series “Game of Thrones”

Activist

Headey is a member of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and is also an outspoken opponent of the exploitation of animals for entertainment. In 2008, she starred in a video calling for a boycott of circus performances: “No one deserves to be beaten or do anything against their will, but this is what happens to animals in circuses.”

Shy

Of the 82 bed scenes featured in the seven seasons of Game of Thrones, the lion’s share is Headey’s Cersei Lannister.In fact, we have never seen her naked in the frame – instead of Lina, a stunt double named Rebecca Van Cleef worked. In the famous scene of a walk in King’s Landing, Lina’s face was added using CGI. Headey’s reason for refusing explicit scenes is simple: she doesn’t want her son Wylie and daughter Teddy to see their mother naked on screen.

Almost a ballerina

Long ago, Lina Headey planned to become a ballet dancer. In early childhood, she went to art school, but when she was 5 years old, her parents listened to the teacher, who said that the girl was unlikely to make a good ballerina.Then the parents suggested that the girl should choose some other occupation and the choice fell on acting.

Headey and Dinklage

The two Game of Thrones stars met on the set of Pete Smalls is Dead and became close friends. By the way, they share a membership in PETA, and it was Peter who recommended the actress for the role of Cersei. Lena Headey and Peter Dinklage

Psychic

Since childhood, Lina has seen ghosts. According to her, the first time she saw a ghost was in childhood: a certain transparent female figure floated through the wall.The second time the supernatural happened in 2018, in a hotel in France.

Tattoo fan

Headey loves tattoos; there are a dozen drawings on her body. During filming, make-up artists have to make a lot of effort to hide it.
