It seems being too pretty is a crime after all.

Hong Kong star Gillian Chung revealed recently that she was once detained at an airport in Germany, and the reason given was that she was “young and pretty” and thus, (presumably) was up to no good.

The 41-year-old shared this on a variety show, listing this incident as her most memorable travel experience.

As reported by a Singapore entertainment portal, Chung was on her way to Belgium for a friend’s wedding and had a layover in Germany.

However, Chung and a friend she was travelling with, were detained by the airport authority in Germany as they suspected the two pretty women were entering Belgium to do “illegal things”.

According to Chung, she tried to explain that she was a celebrity and that she had money, but the officers apparently continued to “carry out detailed checks on them” which took a bit of time.

“We were rushing for our flight, and had no access to food, rooms or flights, and yet we were detained. We were really super unlucky,” she was reported saying.

Chung debuted as a singer more than 20 years ago as one half of Cantopop duo Twins, alongside Charlene Choi.
