Wes Bentley's past came back to haunt him this week and was denied entry into Canada where he planned to promote latest film at the Toronto International Film Festival.
The Hunger Games actor was arrested in 2008 for heroin possession. Since our friendly neighbors to the north do not allow convicted foreign criminals past the border, he couldn't attend the festival screening of The Time Being.
He's now married and has completely turned his life around, so it's understandable that he's pretty bummed about the whole thing. A source close to him explained:

US Border Patrol Agents are now using horses to fight drug smugglers!
Even off-loading pick-up trucks and ATVs have trouble with some of the rocky terrain around the US/Mexico border.
So they enlisted the help of wild mustangs.
The horses know the territory and trust each other, so they can easily be used to chase down drug smugglers vehicles.
Since July, the horses have been credited with seizing a record 930,000 pounds of marijuana and arresting over 350 suspects.
Many of the horses were rescued from slaughter houses and trained by prison inmates to be effective drug hunters.
It's so great to know that these horses are rescued and given a job where they get to run around the open terrain with one another.
