China is putting a limit on movie star pay. Actors getting high salaries is bad for society. Actors try to avoid tax. The government wants to stop "money worship". It said money is not the most important thing in life. Many young people are "blindly chasing celebrities" and turning them into heroes. This gives people a false idea about what real life is like. The government said movies should help society, not movie stars.

The government made rules for movie companies. Actors' salaries will be less than 40 per cent of the cost of the movie. Leading actors will get less than 70 per cent of the total wages for all actors. Chinese people support this. They say "greedy" actors show off their wealth and "Hollywood lifestyles". One person wrote: "Society has given them too much and they give nothing back. They do not teach young people about the...importance of community in China."
