Taylor Kitsch Airport Incident Not in Manila as Confirmed by Indonesian Government


Taylor Kitsch' airport bribe incident where an airport official allegedly asked for his iPhone in exchange of his entry to the country was confirmed happened in Indonesia and not the Philippines as what he and “Late Show” host David Letterman talked about during the latter's television show.

The story of the alleged bribe emerged when Letterman asked the “John Carter” star about his recent shoot for the Oliver Stone film “Savages”.

Letterman mentioned the Philippines when he talked about the shoot - but Kitsch failed to correct him and say that the filming took place in Indonesia.

Kitsch described how an airport customs officer threatened to send him back to Japan, his port of origin, because he had run out of pages in his passport.

The 30-year-old Canadian-born actor further said that he was finally allowed in after proving he was an actor by showing the officer on his iPhone the trailer for his recently completed film “John Carter,” in which he plays a Civil War veteran transplanted to Mars.

In a report posted at Detik.com, Indonesian deputy minister for justice and human rights Denny Indrayana confirmed that the 30-year-old Canadian-born actor arrived at Bali island’s Ngurah Rai airport on February 1, as scheduled, to shoot a film in the neighboring West Nusa Tenggara province.

Indrayana also shared that the Indonesian official who allegedly bribed Taylor Kitsch has been identified and is now subject for interrogation.
