Malaysian actress and former Bond girl Michelle Yeoh was deported from Myanmar on June 22 just hours after entering the country because she’d been blacklisted by the government there, according to the Associated Press. Officials did not give a reason for the action, but Yeoh is the star of The Lady, Luc Besson’s upcoming film about Myanmar’s Nobel Peace Prize winning pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi, who spent nearly two decades as a political prisoner.
