Fifty Shades of Grey: the famous scene that WON’T be in the film


Those of you who have read Fifty Shades of Grey will be all too familiar with the er, tampon scene…

For those of you who haven’t, in the scene Anastasia has her period and before they have sex, Christian pulls her tampon out. Sorry…

Now that has been uncomfortably explained, it has been revealed that the scene won’t be making the movie, which we have to say isn’t all that surprising given that it isn’t the sexiest of scenes to imagine.

Talking to Variety, the director Sam Taylor-Johnson revealed that the infamous scene wouldn’t cut it: “It didn’t make the movie. It was never even discussed.”

Producer of the movie, Michael DeLuca explained that the decision, saying: “The book needed to put you in Ana’s shoes to be a successful experience. A lot of it was very literal. The movie didn’t need to do that. It’s a completely different medium.”

Are you relieved or disappointed that the scene won’t be hitting the cinemas?
