A steamy shower scene between Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie was cut from their upcoming thriller 'The Tourist,' following protests from Depp’s long-term girlfriend Vanessa Paradis.
Paradis has long been putting pressure on her Hollywood mega star beau to axe the steamy sex scene with Jolie in their forthcoming film 'The Tourist.'
Paradis and Depp have been together for 12 years and have two kids together.
In March (10) reports surfaced with claims that the French singer Paradis is worried about her man working with the notorious man-stealing actress Angelina Jolie.
When she learned of the sexually explicit scene, in which the A-list pair were to writhe together in a shower, the 37-year-old became so distraught that she begged Depp to pull out of the production.
In fact, when Paradis found out her ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ and ‘Alice in Wonderland’ BF and the mother of six Jolie were due to get hot ’n’ heavy for a passionate love scene, she banned him from doing that, the New York Post reported earlier.
Jolie-Depp’s shower scene axed
Apparently, the French singer Paradis has won a battle to pull Depp-Jolie’s steamy highlight from their new crime thriller, in which the 45-year-old Hollywood heartthrob plays American tourist Frank Taylor seduced by Interpol agent Cara Mason, played by 35-year-old Jolie.
“She put pressure on Johnny and finally he said he wanted the shower scene out,” a source told The Mail on Sunday. “He told the producers it cheapened the movie and I am assured that his wishes are being honoured.”
Depp initially resisted her pleas, "but he gave in over the shower scene," the insider said.
“It would have been highly embarrassing for Vanessa. When Angelina learned he wanted it out, she wanted Johnny to reconsider, but he got his way.”
After learning of the scene, Paradis "wanted him right out of the production," the Daily Mail source said.
The scene that outraged Depp’s GF
Citing a leaked copy of the script, New York celebrity magazine Life & Style says the Depp-Jolie scene features Depp lifting Jolie against the glass, clutching at her slithery body, and kissing her frantically.
"Cara later turns abruptly to Frank and presses her body against his. He’s taken by surprise but willingly responds. . . wrapping his arms around her," Daily Mail cited the script as saying.
Jolie: a men stealer?
Apparently learning from the mistakes of actresses like Laura Dern and Jennifer Aniston, who left brokenhearted after Jolie stole their men, Paradis had previously asked Depp to get out of his role in ‘The Tourist.’
After learning of the scene, Paradis ‘wanted him right out of the production’, the Daily Mail source said.
“Angelina comes with a reputation. She stole Brad Pitt from Jennifer Aniston when they were shooting Mr & Mrs Smith together,” the source added.
Besides facing blames for the breakdown of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston's marriage, the puffy-lipped siren was also accused of dating Billy Bob Thornton, with whom she co-starred in ‘Pushing Tin’ in 1999, while he was engaged to actress Laura Dern.
'The Tourist' is due for release in the nation on Dec. 10.
