Many celebrities engage in controversial behavior and even partake in illegal drug use, but would you think they’d be blacklisted from entering certain countries? More celebrities have been barred than you may think. We’ve found 12 celebrities banned from countries around the globe because of either their criminal record, drug use or their offensive actions. Even international humanitarian Brad Pitt has been refused entry in a country that might surprise you.
1. Paris Hilton
The hotel heiress has been banned from Japan since 2010. When Paris arrived in the country for a promotional tour, she was turned back by officials because of a former drug conviction. Paris was arrested in 2007 in Las Vegas for possession of cocaine. Japanese officials do not take drug charges lightly, so they decided to say sayonara and ban the socialite from entering for life.
