Chinese actress Jing Tian was slapped with a million-dollar fine for breaching the nation’s advertising law by touting candies as a weight-loss drug.

Jing, who has been in Hollywood blockbusters such as “The Great Wall” with Matt Damon and “Kong: Skull Island,” has been a brand ambassador for Infinite Free, a Guangzhou-based company that claimed its fruit and vegetable candy could prevent the body from absorbing sugars, oils and fats.
