Evan Rachel Wood Calls Out the MPAA for Sex Scene Double Standards on Deleted ‘Charlie Countryman’ Scene

Actress Evan Rachel Wood took to Twitter after she saw the latest cut of her new film “Charlie Countryman,” which was released two weeks ago.  The new cut, which received an R rating from the MPAA, does not include parts of a love scene in which Shia Labeouf’s character performs oral sex on Wood’s character.  The Twitter rant was broken up with ellipses and was posted Wednesday evening (though she corrected the grammar and reposted some of the posts Thanksgiving morning).  Here it is in its entirety:

@evanrachelwood

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 womans sexuality once again. 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. 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 women are sexual beings…

…Accept that some men like pleasuring women. Accept that women 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…

…Thanks for listening.

Indiewire.
