Actors who are banned from China
China's Communist regime has loosened a number of restrictions in recent years, but the country's still far from a bastion of freedom—right down to the fact that the government there has a history of deciding which, if any, American movies make their way into national theaters. While the Chinese government might be more open to American movies now, there are still plenty of topics and images that remain taboo—and there are certain actors they don't like at all, so much so that they have banned them from the country. Some were banned for speaking out against the Chinese government, while others ended up on the government blacklist for general disrespect. We've rounded up a list of Hollywood stars who are persona non grata with the Chinese government, and you can probably guess some of them, a number of the others just might surprise you. These are the actors who are banned from China.
