Michelle Yeoh Deported From Myanmar

Just because you’re a celebrity doesn’t mean you can go anywhere you want. Actress Michelle Yeoh discovered this after she was deported and blacklisted from Myanmar for her role in the upcoming movie about Suu Kyi: “The Malaysian actress arrived in the country’s main city, Yangon, on June 22 and was deported the same day… a government official said… But Myanmar’s repressive government has routinely rejected visa requests of journalists and perceived critics for years. The Luc Besson movie about Suu Kyi’s life, The Lady, is due out later this year, and Yeoh has said she hopes her portrayal of Suu Kyi will raise awareness about the Nobel Peace Prize winner’s story.”

About Moye

I am a Japanese-American girl who was born, raised and is most probably stuck in traffic right this second in Los Angeles. I'm currently one of the co-editors of 8Asians and like to distract myself with good food, reading long books, playing video games, catching up on celebrity news, choosing my new new haircut and then writing all about it on Hello Moye and sometimes here on Twitter if I can get it in under 140 words or less. You can reach me at moye[at]8asians.com.
