Liu Mintao is the concubine Jing in "Langya List" and the mirror in "The Pretender".
This middle-aged actor who was out of the circle was in the entertainment industry at the age of 16, and he was also a popular figure at that time.
But she suddenly married into a wealthy family and gave up her proud job, thinking that marrying into a wealthy family would make her live a happy life, but she did not expect that she had become a purdah woman.
Married into a wealthy family for 7 years
Liu Mintao's parents are very traditional, seeing that their daughter has no object at the age of 30, and they can't help but be anxious, worried that their daughter will not be able to marry and die alone in the future, so they arranged for Liu Mintao to go on a blind date with a big businessman.
Liu Mintao, who was focused on his career, did not have the heart to talk about marriage at all, thinking that it would be good to deal with his parents in a hurry, but he did not expect that this big businessman liked Liu Mintao very much.
Even though Liu Mintao made it clear that he had no idea of getting married, the businessman still took good care of Liu Mintao and expressed his willingness to accompany her until she wanted to get married.
This made Liu Mintao begin to have a little good impression of this businessman, but the real heart was because of the meticulous care of the businessman.
For example, Liu Mintao, who is very serious about filming, can be said to forget to sleep and eat in the crew, and the businessman will personally cook and send it over for Liu Mintao's health, and urge Liu Mintao to eat.
Once Liu Mintao accidentally injured while filming, she didn't find it herself, but the businessman was anxious to medicate Liu Mintao, and said what if he had tetanus?
Not only these, the businessman's care for Liu Mintao is really meticulous, which makes Liu Mintao also have the idea that marrying him seems to be good.
So soon after the two fell in love, they quickly got married, Liu Mintao also quit the entertainment industry, focusing on being a good wife for her husband, and being at home with her husband and teaching her son was the most beautiful thing that Liu Mintao felt at that time.
Although her husband is no longer as considerate as before marriage, he will not snub Liu Mintao, and his life has been peaceful for two years.
When Liu Mintao was 32 years old, she gave birth to a daughter, which is a good thing for the traditional thinking Liu Mintao, she feels that having her own children can she have a real home.
But it was a world away from what she expected, and after having a daughter, Liu Mintao's relationship with her husband fell to a freezing point.
The crying of children is irritating, not to mention that there are still a bunch of housework to deal with, and the husband looks at these troubles, so he rarely comes home in the name of work, and in a huge mansion, only one nanny can help Liu Mintao.
Liu Mintao put all her heart and soul on her daughter, she had no time for herself, let alone party with friends, spend time dressing herself, and the businessman looked at the yellow-faced woman in front of her and couldn't raise interest, so she stayed outside night and night.
Liu Mintao also called her husband, hoping that he would return home more often, but the calls to her husband have always been busy.
Liu Mintao's love disappeared in endless family chores and forever waiting for her husband to come home, and in 2013, she ruthlessly filed for divorce with her husband.
Leaving home to take care of his daughter, he returned to the screen
Liu Mintao left the house cleanly and left the mansion that trapped her for 7 years with her daughter, and her parents angrily scolded her for not being sensible, but Liu Mintao refuted that they did not know the bitterness of keeping the empty house alone in recent years.
The seven years since she married into a wealthy family are also the seven years since Liu Mintao left the entertainment industry, and these seven years have transformed her from a big celebrity who received plays to a soft hand to a small transparent in the entertainment industry.
She ran around looking for only one chance, and finally a director she had worked with before was willing to use her, even if the salary was not high and the roles were not much, but she still responded, because she knew that this was the only chance to return to the screen.
Even if she is a marginal character in the play, she still performs very hard, and her superb acting skills play this role vividly, so she became famous overnight, and the directors also saw her acting skills and threw olive branches.
So there is Concubine Jing in "Langya List", Eldest Sister Mingjing in "The Pretender", and An Xin in the recent hit drama "Lady's Character".
Perhaps he was once "An Xin", Liu Mintao perfectly interpreted this role, showing the audience what is called "textbook acting".
However, Liu Mintao's ability to stand on stage and show us her excellent acting skills was the opposite of her initial choice.
Liu Mintao was taught to find an "iron rice bowl" job since she was a child, and although she prefers acting, she still chooses to obediently follow her parents' advice and become a teacher in the future.
At this time, the aunt of the drama troupe valued Liu Mintao's ability and felt that Liu Mintao was very savvy about acting, so she strongly persuaded Liu Mintao's parents to let Liu Mintao take the art path to learn acting.
The parents did not want their daughter to act, so they made an appointment with their aunt that if Liu Mintao could have a good rank in the professional examination, they would like their daughter to learn acting.
Liu Mintao cherished this opportunity, on the way to the test center, his mind kept pondering how those actors performed, and his aunt would also patiently answer Liu Mintao's questions on the side.
Liu Mintao wanted to go to the best school to learn acting, and entering the Chinese opera was her biggest goal, and with such determination, Liu Mintao completed the exam.
My aunt thought it was very good that Liu Mintao could win the top ten in the drama, but I didn't expect Liu Mintao to give the whole family a big surprise - she ranked first in the professional exam.
Liu Mintao successfully entered his ideal school and learned his favorite major, so he studied harder, took every opportunity to perform on stage very seriously, and repeatedly chewed the script to achieve his best state.
In this way, Liu Mintao successfully graduated with top grades in college, and soon received an invitation from the crew to play Nie Xiaoqian in "New Editor's Chat", and Liu Mintao has been active in film and television since then.
Career and daughter's choice
After the divorce, Liu Mintao's acting skills are still online and his career is prosperous, but this will inevitably be negligent to his daughter, who has no father and needs her mother more, but her mother is busy with work.
The daughter has less and less time for her mother Liu Mintao to accompany her, which makes her daughter dissatisfied, so her daughter once quarreled with her mother.
During a fight, the daughter asked, "Mom, why do you have to be an actor?" This deeply stimulated Liu Mintao, she felt even more guilty about her daughter, what did she think was the difference between such behavior and her ex-husband?
So Liu Mintao began to reduce her work, but her daughter grew up with more and more big and small moments, and she still missed a lot of moments, so she began to struggle with whether to choose work or choose her daughter.
If you completely put down your work, there is no benefit for the time being, I am afraid that when you want to work again in the future, no one will want to use her, Liu Mintao is 40 years old, young and beautiful actresses are emerging in an endless stream, she is easily forgotten in the corner.
But after thinking for a long time, she still chose her daughter. While work is important, her daughter is everything to her.
She spends more time with her daughter at home, and her daughter is very happy that her mother can be by her side, and the two will nest on the sofa and watch the TV series that her mother has performed.
The daughter looked at her mother's appearance on TV, and slowly became very interested in filming.
But Liu Mintao felt that her daughter was too young and was not suitable to enter this circle now, so she asked her daughter to focus on her studies and life first.
The daughter also listens to her mother, but acting is also very attractive to her, so she often plays the role played by her mother or her favorite role in the living room
Liu Mintao saw that his daughter liked acting so much, so he decided to take his 14-year-old daughter to shoot a group of magazine covers, and her daughter performed very well, facing the camera without fear, and even at ease.
Looking at the daughter standing on the cover, Liu Mintao's eyes were full of pride and emotion.
The daughter is very well-behaved, does not need to worry about Liu Mintao in study and life, and consciously completes her homework, and will help do housework after writing.
With such a sensible daughter, Liu Mintao is unwilling to wronged her, and will ask her daughter's opinion on all important things, such as falling in love and getting married.
Liu Mintao's love affair was exposed
Liu Mintao has always longed for love, she feels that starting a family is something that a person should complete, but she feels that such an important thing as starting a family should also be discussed with her daughter.
Asked if her daughter wanted a stepfather, her daughter said that if Liu Mintao wanted to get married and fall in love, she would be bold to do it, but she didn't want a younger sibling to share her mother's love.
The daughter's sensibility made Liu Mintao say on the show that he did not care about the other party's family lineage, but also cared whether the other party was a kind person.
This kindness can be said to be for Liu Mintao and her daughter, and she hopes that this man can treat his daughter like his own child.
And now, Liu Mintao seems to have met this kind man, and a paparazzi broke the news that Liu Mintao was dating and shopping with strange men, and kissing in the car.
Generally, this kind of star who is exposed to romance will be scolded by fans and even lose a large number of fans, but for Liu Mintao, it is the opposite, not only passers-by, but even fans are very supportive of Liu Mintao's pursuit of his own happiness.
Liu Mintao did not deny or admit this scandal, but I think whether it is true or not, fans can accept it, and I hope that Liu Mintao will find the right person as soon as possible and spend the second half of his life together.
Now 47-year-old Liu Mintao has a successful career, she no longer depends on anyone, she no longer obeys others, she only lives for herself, and her inspirational life also encourages more people to follow their hearts.
I hope that everyone can also be like Liu Mintao, who can afford to put it down, follow their own intentions, and make people's lives shine.
