Evan Rachel Wood is furious that her sex scene was cut from the film Charlie Countryman and she isn’t afraid to say so.
The actress lashed out at the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) – which is responsible for giving age-restrictive ratings on movies – for forcing filmmakers to cut a sex scene deemed too inappropriate for audiences.
The outspoken 26-year-old expressed her disappointment via a series of Twitter messages and suggested sexism was to blame for the scene’s removal.
She wrote: "After seeing the new cut of #CharlieCountryman I would like 2 share my disappointment with the MPAA, who thought it was necessary to censor a womans [sic] sexuality once again.
“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.”
The new mom – who gave birth to her first son with husband Jamie Bell in July – went on to accuse Hollywood of reinforcing double standards.
She continued: "This is a symptom of a society that wants to shame women and put them down for enjoying sex, especially when (gasp) the man isn't getting off as well! Its hard for me to believe that had the roles been reversed it still would have been cut."
Evan stars opposite Shia Lebeouf in the film, which is slated for release on Christmas Day.
