The former 'House M.D.' actress has been alerted about the editing out of an intimate scene in her coming-of-age film by a fan who watched the movie on a flight.

AceShowbiz - Olivia Wilde is seeking answers after learning an unspecified airline has edited out an intimate same-sex scene from her film "Booksmart".

The actress-turned-director was alerted to the missing footage, which features two female characters having sex, when a fan recently watched the film on a flight and noted something was lacking.

"Tried watching 'Booksmart' on the plane and they cut the ENTIRE lesbian hookup scene like not even a KISS was allowed! oh but don't worry guys, the Straights got their kiss," the devotee, Michaela Barton, tweeted, prompting Olivia to respond: "This is truly a bummer. There is no nudity in this scene. What makes it too obscene for airplane viewing? What airline?"

Olivia Wilde's Booksmart airline censorship

Olivia Wilde responded to airline censorship of 'Booksmart'.

She then added: "I don't understand it. There's censorship airline to airline of films. There must be some kind of governing board to determine."

"We rated a certain way. If it's not X rated, surely it's acceptable on an airplane. There's insane violence of bodies being ripped in half and yet a love scene between two women is censored from the film. It's such an integral part of the character's journey. My heart just broke. I don't understand it. It's confusing."
