Oh no, Fan Bingbing (范冰冰) might quit acting in 5 years!
After returning from the Cannes Film Festival recently, the 35-year-old Chinese actress told reporters that she plans to stop acting when she turns 40 as she wants to travel around the world.
Fan said, “I have focused all the time I have before the age of 40 to my career. I think, I should be able to enjoy the fruits of my labour.”
According to a report by Chinese media outlet Tencent via Cinema Online, the starlet admitted that a lot of her friends are skeptical of her retirement plans because she is “a workaholic”. “I’m not sure. It’s (the plan) still unknown,” she added.
Meanwhile, Fan expressed her support for young directors, saying that she will reduce her pay when working with them. “I think having a lot of money is not something that I particularly value,” she explained.
Fan Bingbing is one of the highest-paid actresses in the world and has appeared in many foreign-language films including Hollywood blockbuster “X-Men: Days of Future Past”. She is currently dating Chinese actor Li Chen, whom she met on the set of “The Empress Of China”, a popular Chinese period drama based on the life story of Wu Ze Tian, the only female emperor in Chinese history.
