However, her return to the cameras has seen her fall ill whilst visiting the separatist Tibet region in south-eastern China for a charity project.

Bingbing was snapped in the city of Lhasa, which sits at 3,490 metres (11,450 feet) above sea level and she soon began suffering from altitude sickness.

Images show the actress, who topped the 2017 Forbes China Celebrity rich list, lying in bed using an oxygen nasal cannula.

Other photos her using the cannula as she looks ill during her trip to Lhasa, which is one of the world’s highest cities.

Bingbing, 37, was in Tibet as part of her ‘Heart Ali’ project which funds treatment for children suffering from congenital heart ailments in the region.

The actress was not heard from for months in 2018 before reappearing in October to apologise for tax fraud after Jiangsu province authorities announced she could avoid a prison sentence by paying an 883,000,000-CNY (99.9 million-GBP) fine.

She starred in the 2014 film X-Men: Days of Future Past and 2013’s Iron Man 3.

She was found to have been receiving two contracts for film projects and only reporting the smaller one to the authorities.

Reported abuses of human rights by China in Tibet include restricted freedom of religion, belief, and association.
