Chinese actress Jing Tian was slammed with a million-dollar fine.
It is due to intruding on China's advertising law by touting candies as a weight-loss drug.
The Great Wall (2016) starred Matt Damon, and Pacific Rim: Uprising (2018) starred Jing.
She is a brand ambassador for Infinite Free, a Guangzhou-based company.
The company stated that its fruit and vegetable candy could prevent the body from gripping sugars, oils, and fats.
In the ads Jing Tian said that people could keep in shape by taking two "candies" after a meal.
The local regulator in Guangzhou imposed a 7.22 million yuan (RM4.74mil) fine on May 28.
They are saying that ordinary food cannot be claimed to have therapeutic effects as per the advertising law.
The actor apologized and promised not to advertise any products in this category in the future.
