The World: Beijing - China bans Pond's ad with famously nude film star

Chinese censors have banned the star of a controversial film from appearing in a multimillion-dollar campaign for the Unilever skincare brand Pond's.

Tang Wei, who made her starring debut role in Ang Lee's movie Lust, Caution, had been signed by Ogilvy & Mather to front the campaign.

Now, China's State Administration for Radio, Film and Television has ordered her commercial to be pulled.

The decision is believed to be linked with her nudity in the film.
