The 5ft 7in star regularly shares striking selfies displaying her youthful visage, as well as stunning images from her various fashion shoots.

The actress, who found fame in Japan thanks to her turn in the Tony Woo-directed Chinese-language war film, Red Cliff, may look as though she's in her twenties - but she's actually twice that age.

Lin Chi-Ling has revealed that her true age is 42 - and her followers can't get their heads around it.

'It must be magic, she's like an elf,' wrote one, while another dubbed her a 'perfect goddess'.

The model, who poses both with and without makeup online, was also hailed 'just too pretty' by another fan.

The svelte star, who often dons revealing outfits in her photos, is fluent in English after a stint studying at Toronto University.  

She also had a starring role in the 2010 television drama Moon Lovers alongside SMAP member Takuya Kimura.
