Yang Mi


Actress Yang Mi, who has acted since childhood and often recognized for her somewhat incompetent performances on-screen, was admitted to the Performance Department of Beijing Film Academy with the highest test scores in 2005.

Her efforts paid off, as Jiang is the holder of the highest test score in "cultural" exams in the history of students who graduated from high school affiliated with Beijing Dance Academy.


Huang Lei

Some of the over-the-counter cellulite treatments actually do quite a good job of significantly reducing the appearance of cellulite.
