Michelle Yeoh Deported from Burma Over Pro-Democracy Role

michelleyeoh-120.jpgMichelle Yeoh, the star of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Tomorrow Never Dies, was booted from Burma last week for working on director Luc Besson's biopic The Lady, about Nobel Prize winner and Burmese government protester Suu Kyi. Burmese authorities blacklisted Yeoh for her "presumed support" of Kyi, who spent almost 15 years in house arrest. If Yeoh should fight for her right to visit Burma, I hope she storms the shores with Sheryl Crow's defiant Bond theme. [Moviefone]
