We be this is a load off her mind: Hailee Steinfeld won't have to disrobe in the new Romeo & Juliet movie!
Here's what the director himself had to say, after source like The View were up in arms over the idea of the 14 year old actress having to be nude in a film:
“In the original adaptation written by the Oscar-winning screenwriter Julian Fellowes, there was a lovemaking scene that included nudity for the married Romeo and Juliet. This script was written with a 20-year-old actress in mind. As soon as Hailee Steinfeld was cast, all nudity and lovemaking have been excised from the script. It will be romantic and age-appropriate for a 14-year-old.”
Even with parental consent and all of that, we feel that this is definitely for the better. Fourteen is WAY too young for a scene like that!
Are U relieved to hear about this??
