Harrison Ford may be one of the biggest movie stars in the world, but Indonesia wasn't happy to have him in the country.
Ford is filming a Showtime documentary about climate change, "Years of Living Dangerously," and a recent confrontational interview with the forestry minister had Indonesian officials reportedly threatening the actor with deportation.
According to media reports, the 71-year-old star has been traveling around the country, talking to politicians -- including President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono -- and activists about logging, forest fires, and conservation. But Forestry Minister Zulkifi Hasan felt ambushed and complained that he was given little opportunity to state his viewpoints.
Presidential advisor Andi Arief revealed he was "shocked that as [Ford's] crew came in, they started filming and interviewing [Hasan] ... and attacking him with questions."
The Indonesian government talked about deporting Harrison -- as Arief said, "There's no privilege for him although he is a great actor" -- but it was a moot point since the actor left soon after. Harrison's rep declined to comment to E! News.
Harrison, vice president of Conservation International, is a longtime supporter of environmental causes. "Years of Living Dangerously" is set to air on Showtime sometime in April 2014.
