Qi has been active in the entertainment industry since 1996.

How rich is the Taiwanese actress? It has been estimated by authoritative sources that the outright size of Shu Qi net worth is as much as $20 million, as of the data presented in early 2017. Acting and modelling are the sources of Qi’s fortune.

Shu Qi Net Worth $20 Million

To begin with, the girl was raised in a family experiencing economic difficulties, so the young Shu Qi moved to Hong Kong at the age of 17, where she began working for nudity and softcore porn movie magazines. Later, she was hired by producer Manfred Wong, who continued to have her work in erotic films. In 1996, she landed a role in the film “Viva Erotica”, one of the most famous erotic films in Hong Kong, and won the award for the Best Supporting Actress at the Hong Kong Film Awards.

In 1999, Ang Lee chose the actress for the role of Jen in “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”, however, Qi’s manager, Manfred Wong, did not believe in the possibilities of the film, and pushed her to leave the film and work for a commercial in Japan. Subsequently, the role went to Zhang Ziyi. Afterwards, she began working in major productions such as “Gorgeous – Fleeing to Hong Kong” or “Millennium Mambo” in 2000 by Hou Hsiao-hsien. In 2002, she appeared in the Hollywood film “The Transporter”, and the Asian market film entitled “So Close”. In 2004, she starred in the Chinese horror film “The Eye 2”, which was also for the international market. In 2005, the actress won the award for the Best Actress at the Golden Horse Awards for her role in the film of Hou Hsiao-hsien “Three Times”. In 2008, she was a member of the jury at the Berlin International Film Festival, then in 2009, she served on the jury at the Cannes Film Festival. Overall, all the above mentioned engagements added sums to the total size of Qi net worth.

It must be said that despite her involvement in softcore films during her early career, Shu Qi successfully overcame the pressure arising from Chinese conservative culture and gained popularity for her acting talent and attractive appearance. She has consistently ranked as one of the 99 most desirable women around the world by AskMen.com.

Finally, in the personal life of Shu Qi, she married Stephen Fung in 2016.
