Apart from her marriage to Simon Carling, Joanne Peh is generally associated with Chinese American actor and singer, Bruce Lee. She was very close to the actor and is fond of his films, it is said that her first love was in fact a role model, Linda Lee. It is alleged that Joanne Peh became disenchanted with Lee when he refused to help with her studies at a Chinese University in the mid 70s. According to one report, she was so upset by this refusal that she decided to go and live with her boyfriend in Los Angeles instead of attending the Chinese University. It is claimed that Lee was so infuriated by this turn of events that he confronted Joanne Peh and demanded that she return to sing for him, stating that it was her role and he was entitled to her work.
Joanne Peh did eventually return to sing for him but this was just in the guise of a background vocalist. There is however no doubt that Joanne Peh had an excellent singing career, which spanned over ten years between her marriage to Simon Carling and the release of her first film, Come As You Are. It is clear from her biographies and from public appearances that Joanne Peh loved singing and in fact had many musical talents herself, her voice is distinctive and can be identified as being very much like that of singer, Avril Lavigne. In the late eighties, she recorded a number of popular songs that are still popular today and which have achieved commercial success in their own right. Her biography on the Net therefore portrays a versatile actress, who in fact also had great stage acting experience.
In fact it was this role in the movie A Few Good Men for which Joanne Peh became known to Singaporeans, when in 2021 she was nominated for the Best Leading Actress award for her performance as the icy cold receptionist in the movie A Few Good Men. Though it was slightly later in the year that she would win the top prize at the Oscars, it is interesting to note that the public had been following her career closely and were fascinated by her early movie appearances. After her acceptance of the Oscar for her performance, it was widely reported in the press that Joanne Peh had asked to be excluded from the Best Leading Actor prize list in order to allow Robert Downey Jr. to be nominated instead. This led to a major public backlash against the star for apparently turning down such a lucrative honor. It also led to accusations of anti-American sentiment from the left, something that could hardly be blamed on the star herself.
Joanne Peh was nominated again for the Best Supporting Actress award for her performance in the movie The Blind Side, but despite this she still failed to receive any star awards for her efforts. In fact it was only after the release of The Blind Side that she was able to command any real respect in the industry. Now her career has largely rested on the strength of her role in the immensely popular Kung Mangai kata, which won her two Golden Globe Awards as well as the Best Supporting Actor award at the 2021 Oscars. Apart from these two films, Joanne Peh has also been nominated several times for the same award, although her chances of winning are not as high as they used to be. Her profile has also been elevated by her appearance on the television series Doctors, which she hosted in 2021. The Blind Side and Kung Mangai data have also been featured in several biographical books, including ones by her sister and brother.
