One of the many great things about Fan Bingbing’s career is that she never complains about a job until the day she gets to do it. She never expresses how bored she is with her job and says how much she misses it when she is given the chance to quit again. Aside from that, her favorite things to do are shopping and hanging out with friends. She is fond of collecting different types of Chinese ceramic dolls. Among her favorite things to watch on the television are the late night shows because she likes to watch people’s misunderstandings on the screen and try to help them overcome their conflicts.
Fan Bingbing actually grew up in Fujian province in southern China. Her parents were teachers. She attended the local YMCA in town and did bodybuilding exercises for fun. Later on, she decided to become a dancer in an amateur drama company. She trained at the same place as some of the best dancers of her time.
Fan Bingbing studied abroad in Japan for about a year in 2000. She fell in love with the Japanese culture during this time and wanted to spend her remaining days there, living and working amongst the Japanese people. So when she was given the chance by a production company to act in a film about the Nirvana song “Chinese Proverb”, she jumped at the chance. And since then, she has been busy in lots of Asian entertainment, playing the role of both an intelligent and amorous fair princess.
Fan Bingbing’s favorite things to do are shopping, taking long car rides and eating fresh fruit. She loves all types of food and drinks. She adores shopping sprees because she gets to shop for different types of goods. The variety of products fascinates Bingbing and leads to her developing an eye for beauty that is rare among Chinese actresses.
Fan Bingbing went to school studying acting. She liked the idea of a thriving acting career. So whenever she had the chance, she would study different kinds of scripts to hone her acting skills. She spent almost ten years at Tieyang University studying acupuncture and Chinese herbs. After graduating, she finally decided to pursue a Chinese medicine doctorate degree. This gave her a better understanding of the medical side of being a fair princess.
After completing her studies, Fan Bingbing wanted to become an actress in Hollywood. But first, she had to gain international recognition in the Chinese industry before she could succeed as a Chinese actress in Hollywood. After becoming a producer with a Beijing-based production company, she realized that she still has a long way to go as a working actor in Hollywood. She was devastated that there were no opportunities for Chinese actors in Hollywood. This made her want to pursue an acting career in Beijing.
She found an old friend in the production company named Yang Keping. Yang had been an assistant to Fan Bingbing before she became a producer with a Beijing-based production company. Fan Bingbing was impressed by Yang’s knowledge on Chinese culture and his enthusiasm for the Chinese industry. Yang introduced Fan Bingbing to fang Shui expert Su Yonghun. Together they created their own personal style of Feng Shui and soon Fan Bingbing was living the dream in Hollywood – being an actress in the greatest film of all time.
Fan Bingbing studied under Su Yonghun. Su taught her all that she needed to know about the Chinese culture, including how to handle Chinese language, work inside the Chinese set, and even act in Chinese films. This experience truly transformed Fan Bingbing into a true Chinese Hollywood star. She is currently married to Ngoc Loan, who is also an experienced Chinese film industry producer.
All this is very interesting but let me bring it down to one simple scene. Fan Bingbing’s character in American Dream is played by Ngoc Loan, who is Chinese. But the interesting part is that he plays a white American, which makes you think that the American Dream is actually made in China. It could very well be, considering the Chinese film industry’s tremendous growth over the past few decades. However, the most important thing that I got from watching American Dream with my daughter is the message that American values are bad. Not only did I learn that Fan Bingbing went through and struggled with identity issues, but I also got to learn that American culture itself is a victim of its own success.
