Tom Hanks forced to cut sex scenes from new movie due to time limit

London, May 13 (ANI): American actor Tom Hanks has revealed that he had to omit some sex scenes from his new movie ‘Angels and Demons’, as there was no time for “smooching” in the action-packed film.

The 52-year-old star plays the part of Harvard professor Robert Langdon, who investigates the murder of a physicist and a terrorist act against the Vatican by a secret brotherhood.

But moviemakers had to downplay the love scenes between Hanks’ character and his female companion, played by Ayelet Zurer, leaving the actor very disappointed.

“We really don’t have time to make out or go to bed when Cardinals are being killed on the hour. We tried to work it into the screenplay over and over again. We were like, ‘Isn’t there a bigger car with a bigger backseat?’” the Daily Express quoted him as telling Parade magazine.

“But we were stuck with an Alfa Romeo so we didn’t have an opportunity to grab some smooching on the way to the Pantheon or the Piazza Del Poppolo. It’s my loss, but I think it did make it easier for Ayelet,” he added. (ANI)
