Actor Feng Li embroiled in ‘Adding Fat Gate’.
For his health and career development, Feng writes in his blog that he does not want to be always the fat actor. After graduating from university, Feng Li gained 70 catties (1 catty= .6kg, so 80lbs?) for his debut in Peacock. After completing the film, he tried to lose weight for a year and a half. During this time, he suffered hypoglycemia and dizzy spells. Feng’s doctor has advised him to lose weight. “I also want to lose weight. Being fat is very laborious.” However, his management agency has contracted Feng not to weigh less then 110 kilos. According to his agreement, if he falls below 110 kilos, Feng will get a letter from the lawyers. His agency fears if he loses too much weight that he would no longer be recognizable.

Zhang Ziyi on cover of sex disc
A pirated sex disc with Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi’s photos on its cover is a hot favorite in the Hong Kong piracy market. Besides the beach photos that paparazzi took of her last year, in the disc are five other sex video clips unrelated to her.
A Hong Kong reporter found the disc which is currently retailing at HK$30 (about S$6) in the Hong Kong piracy market. Zhang’s beach photos, taken by paparazzi and breached privacy rights, were used unscrupulously to solicit business.
The disc is exquisitely packaged in two layers of wrapper, a colored cardboard cover and a transparent case. Printed on the cover are her portraits and six classic photos in the beach series, in fine prints are the words “Zhang Ziyi Nude Photos”. The inside cover also has a short summary of about 100 hundred words on Zhang’s series of topless photos disseminated on the Internet.
81 photos of Zhang frolicking on a Caribbean beach with her boyfriend Vivi Nevo while they were on a holiday in January 2009 spread like wild fire on China websites. The photos showed Zhang baring her top and lying on the beach for a sunbath while Vivi “buried” his head into her butt.
A custom spokesperson said they will follow up with investigations should the copyrights owner of the photos decide to file a complaint. When found guilty, the infringer may be sentenced to a maximum of four years imprisonment and receive a fine of HK$50,000 for each infringed material. According to previous reports, an anonymous man has paid an astronomical price to buy the exclusive copyrights of these photos in Taiwan, Japan, Korea and America. For three months between Jan 9 to Apr 9, media in the four countries are not allowed to buy or publish the related photos. It was not reported if copyrights of the photos were bought in Hong Kong.
