‘The Lady’ Michelle Yeoh deported from Burma


Malaysian-born Michelle Yeoh who plays democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi in the upcoming movie ‘The Lady’ has been deported by Burma’s military dictators.

The movie is set to catapult Suu Kyi – and the long-suffering people of Burma – to global attention and put immense pressure on the nation’s military junta. No wonder they booted Michelle out.

Where the hell of so called “Asean spirit”?
Malaysia government silent about this , is it because Burma become one of those major low tech, low pay labor source for Malaysia?


Saya ada cadangan Michelle Yeoh main peranan Ng Yen Yen dalam filem mengenai perkembaangan kerjaya beliau. Memang boleh dapat sokongan dari Finas dan juga dari Ferrari.


If Michele Yeo plays the role of Ng Yen Yen, may be Wong Chun Wai of The Star can play the role of Chua Soi Lek.
Sure heboh !

The politician or the porn star?


… Suggest Chun Wai goes doing research at Batu Pahat’s hotel…


Repressive gov’ts will do anything to hang on to power. Rings a bell, doesn’t it?


Going by the number of comments on Michelle Yeoh, and none of them too kindly on her, I was rather taken aback that many M’sians feel nothing but disgust and contempt for her. Check out similar news thread in Malaysiakini and read the comments.

I have had only neutral feelings for her as an actress and a person hitherto. But now, I get the feeling more of her countrymen despise her than love her. Such irony, isn’t it, for a Hollywood star?

One word sums it all: Jealous !!!

Andrew I

Of course, we’re jealous she can fly. She just needs a broom to go with it.


… her (family) alliance/association with mca/bn?

I thought she is now known as michelle todt?


She lend her support to BN Perak after the coup.
So I do not really respect her.

Wonder if anyone would like to finance this movie ????


Andrew I

Duracell Micell didn’t use her flying skills to escape.

What is so great about Michelle Yeoh?

Andrew I

Her flying.


It is not about she is ‘great’, she is just a good actress that perform well in big screen. Got it!
