Phillipines Immigration Commissioner Marcelino Libanan said: "By being on the bureau's blacklist, Baldwin is forbidden from entering the country as he is deemed an undesirable alien."

The actor incurred the wrath of authorities in the Philippines after he told TV host David Letterman during an interview last week that he was contemplating paying for a "Filipino mail-order bride" to father more children.

On May 20, he took to his blog on the Huffington Post website to apologise for making light of the grave matter and wrote: "I apologise for the perceived insensitivity of that remark."
