Famous Chinese actress Zhao Wei is now facing a lawsuit from a man who claims she’s bewitching him by ‘staring’ at him from the TV screen.
In the bizarre suit filed in Shanghai, the unnamed man claims Wei’s intense ‘staring’ at him from the TV screen with her big eyes has left him frightened for his life. He is demanding compensation for ‘spiritual damage.’
Wei, a former kindergarten teacher, is a household name in China for her numerous roles in the big screen. She currently stars in the TV drama Tiger Mom … playing an ’emotionally unstable’ woman who frequently gives her onscreen husband and daughter piercingly cold stares.
It is highly likely that the lawsuit against her will be thrown out, as the People’s Court of Shanghai Pudong District has dismissed 14 similar weird cases in this month alone. The upsurge in the bizarre lawsuits have been traced to the new system of processing of court cases, which took effect last month.
