Jan. 7 (UPI) -- Brad Pitt joined the Chinese microblogging site Sina Weibo Monday to drop a hint that he would be traveling to China for the first time.

Pitt wrote "It is the truth. Yup, I'm coming..." on his verified account and within hours his profile had more than 100,000 followers and the message had more than 30,000 retweets.

According to ABC News, Pitt was essentially barred from visiting China after he appeared in the 1997 film Seven Years in Tibet playing the Dalai Lama's Austrian tutor.

Although many celebrities--including Richard Gere, Martin Scorsese and Harrison Ford--have shared the 'banned in China' distinction, others, like Pitt's Seven Years director Jean-Jacques Annaud have since been welcomed.
