As you may or may not be aware, Titanic has been re-released to Cinemas across the world. But this time, it's in eye popping 3D.
The Chinese movie classification board has decided that the scene in which Jack (played by Leonardo DiCaprio) paints Rose (played by Kate Winslet) in the nude should be cut from the film. If you so happen towatch the film in China, you will only see her from the neck up.
Their reason for cutting the scene? They don't want people to "touch" Kate Winslet. We kid you not.
An official from the China State of Administration of Radio, Film and Television has said "Considering the vivid 3D effects, we fear that viewers may reach out their hands for a touch and thus interrupt other people's viewing. To avoid potential conflicts between viewers and out of consideration of building a harmonious ethical social environment, we've decided to cut off the nudity scenes."
And that's that.
