Golden Horse award-winning Chinese actress Li Xiaolu set tongues wagging when she turned up for a promotional event on Dec 1.
Close-up photographs posted online show the 33-year-old actress, also known by her English name Jacqueline Li or 'Lulu', with an unusually stiff face. She also seemed much older and unlike her usual youthful appearance.
Netizens said that her face 'reeked' of silicon and speculated if she had gotten any work done in terms of plastic surgery.
See photos of her now and before below.
