Chinese Villagers Treat Tilly Like A 'Freaky Giant'

Actress JENNIFER TILLY was treated like a freak while she filmed a new movie in a remote Chinese mountain village. Tilly was the only American on the set and fascinated locals who had never seen a Westerner. She says, "It was just like being in America because when I walked down the street, everybody would point and stare. "They see you coming and everybody stops what they're doing... and their mouths fall open and they stare and they follow you down the street... They've never seen any Americans before. "We were like freaky giant people to them." Tilly feels sure no one actually recognised her from her movies - because all her films have been banned in China. She adds, "Nobody knew me there... They're very concerned about unartistic and bad cultural influences entering their country so all my movies have been severely censored. I don't think a single one of my movies has made it."
