Winona Ryder Slams the Fuss Around 'Dilemma' Gay Joke


Winona Ryder


The actress insisted she would not be part of a film that uses offensive language because she is sensitive to the issue.

Winona Ryder was stunned by the outcry over a 'gay' joke in new film "The Dilemma", insisting she would not "be part" of a movie she thought was "offensive". Officials at the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) organization demanded the axing of a scene from the upcoming movie after a preview clip showed Vince Vaughn's character tell a room of people, "Ladies and gentlemen, electric cars... are gay."

Ron Howard opted to keep the scene in the final cut of the film, and Ryder is glad the director refused to bow to the group's pressure as she can't understand the fuss surrounding the line. She tells Britain's Total Film magazine, "It's just crazy because I'm very sensitive to that issue and if I thought something was offensive I wouldn't want to be part of it."

"Plus all my gay friends use that word all the time so (protesters will) have to go and give them a hard time too. The line has, however, been pulled from the movie's trailer following complaints.
