It's human to make oneself appear superior over  others by downgrading or making fun of them.

I believe that is only for the inferior people but not everyone is like that.  I will not defend a person simply because she is pretty or she is clever at endearing herself to the powerful and people who are useful to her.

Even actors and actresses can be respected but first they must prove their worth through their acting skills and commitment to the profession.  As public figures, their conduct will reflect the public image they get.  They will be subject to criticisms; some justified and some may be not.  Some have made use of the media or others' fame to propel their popularity and fame.  I think that is quite unscrupulous.  To do so, they are no different from those (the media or paparazzi) who choose to degrade them just as they would promote them.

We cannot defend a person/actress unless we know that falsehood or unfairness is made.  But based on what is given and what a forumite had posted her half-naked pictures earlier, I have nothing to say except that it is probably her own doing.  Anyway, why should we care about an actress who strips for men rather than proves her ability to act.  Is that what getting popularity is about?  Do you want that as ambassadress for your country?

It is not FAME to pose for Playboy Magazines.  But of course she has earned BIG BUCKS from it and that's what matters to some and she probably.  That, I suppose, you had not seen!

In any case, as the article has it, it did seem that she does personally feel denigrating about her own Chinese mainlander's status.  

Again, why speak English at the award-giving ceremony when she can't speak the language well?  She could speak Chinese and use a translator for the non-Chinese speaking audience.  She made a fool of herself and the media simply picked that up.  Hmmmm .... seems she's not that popular even with the Chinese audience.

I suppose she doesn't care much.  What matters to her is the BIG BUCKS she's made.  With the big Chinese audience that the Hollywood filmmakers think they can bank on her ... it works both ways.

Don't feel too sad for her or actresses like her.  They are here to stay, unfortunately.

You are not asking me for help, are you?

Of course, you know Playboy is a pornographic magazine.  Women who appear in it are .... well, don't think I need to say it out.

Anyway, I can't and I won't.

I don't want to kill this thread not with our moderators being ever so vigilant nowadays.  We had already lost 2 threads earlier on, it seems.

You are not suggesting that the mods are going to kill this thread just because I post a CHINA DAILY picture below?

Seems like she is just on the cover, fully dressed. Good girl. Too bad for the rest of us, missing out on the goodies.

Oh surely, she's a good girl.

All women who appear on Playboy are good and obedient girls.

and very compliant too.

Who isn't?
