Myanmar exiles Hollywood Celebrity ‘Michelle Yeoh'

Myanmar - The military-based rulers of Myanmar has deported Hollywood actress Michelle Yeoh, who stars as pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi in a forthcoming movie, authorities said Tuesday.
The Malaysian actress here in the country's key city, Yangon, on June 22 and was expelled the same day because she was on a blacklist, a government authorities said.
The official, who refused to be known because he was not allowed to talk to the press, did not articulate why Yeoh was on the list. But Myanmar's exploitive government has commonly discarded visa requests of journalists and seemed critics for years.
Suu Kyi spokesman Nyan Win verified Yeoh was extradited but had no other explanations.
The Luc Besson movie about Suu Kyi's life, "The woman," is due out later this year, and Yeoh has said she thinks her representation of Suu Kyi will enhance attentiveness about the Nobel Peace Prize winner's story.
Suu Kyi, 66, spent most of the last twenty years arrested by the previous military junta. She was freed last year, just days after an election that her party rejected and in which she was banned from being a candidate.
The vote was the nation's first in two decades, and in March, the junta offered power to a civilian government. But opponents say little has changed and the new government is solely a front for sustained rule by the army, which has been in power here since 1962.
Yeoh called Myanmar in December and used up time with Suu Kyi for the film, which was filmed in neighboring Thailand.
Yeoh, an ex-Miss Malaysia, shot to worldwide distinction when she costarred with Pierce Brosnan in the 1997 James Bond film "Tomorrow Never Dies" as a hard but beautiful Chinese spy. She has also starred in "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" and "Memoirs of a Geisha.
