Sharon Stone blames US President George W Bush for the absence of a lesbian kissing scene in Catwoman – because of the current conservative climate in America.
Basic Instinct star Stone, 46, was keen to enjoy an intimate moment with Oscar-winning co-star Halle Berry, but believes a puritanical streak running through the country put an end to any potential girl-on-girl action.
Stone says: "Halle’s so beautiful and I wanted to kiss her. I said, ‘How can you have us in the movie and not have us kiss? That’s such a waste.’
"That’s what you get for having George Bush as president." [Source]
Fr. Shane Tharp already summed up my intention of seeing this movie, but I guess it could have been even worse.
I have NO intention of seeing "Catwoman." There aren’t enough letters in the word "NO" to describe the no-ness of this proposition.
So the logic here is that President Bush can control a kiss in a “B” movie but not stop a polemic like Michael Moore’s movie. That it wasn’t the public reactions to Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction, but instead the views of one man. That an FCC commissioner, who is not exactly a conservative, has been cracking down on the airwaves is a reaction only to the preferences of the President. I guess when you live in a sexocracy like Hollywood for too long you believe that everybody is ruled by sex. She gives no reason why a lesbian kiss would advance the plot or develop any characters, instead it all about her and what she wanted to do. If they had wanted to do this nobody would have stopped them in their self-indulgence. Perhaps even less people would have gone to see this movie as a result, but hey that would be George Bush’s fault and not the sensibilities of most of the American movie going public.
