Evan Rachel Wood Rants Against MPAA Over Deleted ‘Charlie Countryman’ Sex Scene

evanrachel2Evan Rachel Wood has taken to Twitter to vent her anger against the MPAA over a sex scene in her new film Charlie Countryman that had to be deleted in order for the pic to receive an R rating. The graphic scene between lead characters Wood and Shia LaBeouf was cut in the final version after the film’s debut at Sundance. “The scene where the two main characters make “love” was altered because someone felt that seeing… …a man give a woman oral sex made people “uncomfortable” but the scenes in which people are murdered by having their heads blown off… …remained intact and unaltered“, she wrote. The indie drama was given an R rating because of “some brutal violence, language throughout, sexuality/nudity, and drug use”, according to the MPAA.
