'Wolf of Wall Street' Avoids NC-17 Rating After Deleting Sex Scenes


Leonardo DiCaprio


Martin Scorsese's latest film starring Leonardo DiCaprio receives an R rating after certain scenes that show nudity and sex are trimmed.

Hot on heels of Evan Rachel Wood's rants over deleted sex scene in "Charlie Countryman", it's revealed that "The Wolf of Wall Street" faced the similar censorship from MPAA to dodge the dreaded NC-17 rating. The Hollywood Reporter learns that the film has secured an R rating after some nudity and sex scenes were toned down.

Directed by Martin Scorsese, the black comedy is based on a memoir written by former stockbroker Jordan Belfort. Leonardo DiCaprio plays the Wall Street worker, with Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey, Jean Dujardin, Margot Robbie and many more in supporting roles.

It follows the stockbroker who refuses to cooperate in a large securities fraud case involving corruption on Wall Street, the corporate banking world and mob infiltration. The movie already draws Oscar buzz ahead of its United States release on December 25 this year. It runs nearly three hours, making it the longest movie of the 2013 Christmas season.

Just earlier this month, Judi Dench starrer "Philomena" protested MPAA after the censorship group gave an R-rating to the movie for using F-word twice. They won in their appeal after launching a campaign through a viral video which resurrected Dench's character as James Bond's boss.
