Paramount Cuts Gay Sex Scene from 'Rocketman'


  • Sources say that Parmount is pressuring director Dexter Fletcher to remove a 40 second "tastefully done" butt-baring sex scene from the upcoming Elton John biopic Rocketman.

  • The scene is between Taron Egerton, who is playing the openly gay singer Elton John, and Richard Madden, who is playing his former lover John Reid.

  • A source says: “Two guys have a naked cuddle to express their love for each other and that will be reduced to a fully dressed warm hello.”

  • The studio is reportedly demanding the cut so it can be rated PG-13 instead of R.
