There are many famous Hollywood Movie Characters that came from China. Some of the best ones are like Johnny Depp, Matt Damon, Henry Travers, Alexander Gould, Sam Cooke, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Meg Ryan, Michael Caine, Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, Kathleen Turner, Ben Kingsley and many more. There is a long list of Chinese actors who have made their way into Hollywood Movies. However, the ones that made a huge impact are the following. They made it big in their career, just like they were promised.

Johnny Depp is one of the most famous Chinese Americans that ever made it big in Hollywood. He has made such great movies as the “Alice”, “Black Rain” and “The Grey cladancer”. He was an English major at college and became a successful film director, after he went to work for a production company that made documentaries. After that he worked in the industry, producing such movies as “Dune”, “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”, “The Pirates of the Caribbean” and “Affeurs of Fear”.

Brad Pitt is another Chinese American actor who became a star after his turn in “Million Dollar Baby”. After that he went on to star in the films, “X Files” and “plan.” The two went on to have some of the most successful film careers that were ever made. Both Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt have said that the reason they became successful actors was because of their Chinese heritage and because of the Chinese government’s censorship.

Another Chinese American actor who became popular in Hollywood was Tianwan Yang. He went on to be nominated for an Academy Award for his performance in the film “When American Man and the Emperor were Young”. His parents emigrated with him from China. While he was growing up in California with his parents made sure that he did not watch any movies with Chinese Men and Women or with people who were Chinese. In fact they were so strict that they even had to intervene when their son saw a Chinese girl kissing her boyfriend. His parents made him understand that it was not acceptable in the Chinese culture and that he needed to get a different kind of education.

When Doctor Strange was released in the United States there was much criticism from the Chinese Government. The film makers had cast an Asian American actor in the role of Doctor Strange instead of a Caucasian actor. They were attacked by the Chinese Government and did not allow screenings of the film to be released. Many American companies decided to avoid making movies about China altogether and this led to a decline in the Chinese movie industry.

It was not until the late nineteen seventies that there was a resurgence of interest in Chinese cinema. There was a change in the way that censorship was handled. The Chinese began to see that they could have a chance at Hollywood and were able to enjoy films andollywood stars like Chow Lin, Peter Chung and Jackie Chan returning to the country. With the changes in the way that censorship was handled the people of China began to enjoy some Hollywood films and Hollywood stars like Ronald Reagan came to visit.

Today there is still censorship in Hollywood but the Chinese don’t seem to mind too much about it. Instead they just love to see good movies and good actors. The ones that they don’t like they just ignore and many just choose to not watch at all.

If you are a person who enjoys watching movies then the best time to see a movie is at the movies during the weekdays afternoons and on Saturdays. This will give you a chance to sit down with friends and family and enjoy a movie together. Another popular option is to go see a movie during the weekdays on the weekends. This way you won’t miss out on the big movie releases. So make a point to see a movie at least once in a year and you never know when a great Chinese movie might come out.
