Michelle Pfeiffer has slammed producers of her new film I am Sam (2001) for cutting a love scene between her and SEAN PENN's retarded character. The beautiful actress confirmed reports that the sex scene between their characters Rita Harrison and Sam Dawson had been left on the cutting room floor - which she blames on nervous male movie executives.
"There was a very intimate scene in the script where we make love and we filmed a montage thing that isn't in the movie," she says. "It was one of those things that I would have liked to have left in. I think producers got afraid of it. Oddly enough, it was the men who had a bigger problem with it than the women. "
