The 'Mildred Pierce' actress vents out her frustration as she questions MPAA's tendency to favor violent and gory scenes over sex scenes.
Evan Rachel Wood reacts to the deleted sex scene in her new film "Charlie Countryman". She took to Twitter to lash out at Motion Picture Association of America for cutting the intimacy scene between her and Shia LaBeouf's characters in order for the movie to get an R rating.
"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 woman's sexuality once again," she began. "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 mother of one went on to express her frustration over MPAA's double standard with violent scenes.
"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 OR had the female character been raped it would have been cut."
"Its time for people to GROW UP. Accept that woman are sexual beings Accept that some men like pleasuring woman. Accept that woman don't have to just be fucked and say thank you. We are allowed and entitled to enjoy ourselves. Its time we put our foot down," she continued, before concluding, "Thanks for listening."
"Charlie Countryman" revolves around a guy who gets entangled in the violent world of Romanian criminal underground after pursuing a girl who is already claimed by a vicious crime boss. The film was released on November 15 in the United States.
Wood's co-star LaBeouf shared the same sentiment regarding the deleted sex scene as he re-tweeted an article that covered her Twitter rants.
