Actress Detained from Leaving Iran

Crazy stuff. Golshifteh Farahani was recently prevented from leaving Iran for meetings in LA with Hollywood agents after she had previously taken a part in an upcoming Hollywood film Body of Lies (starring Russell Crowe and Leonardo DiCaprio and opening on October 10) without permission.

Permission to act? Detained? Scary.
