Disappointed? “Fifty Shades of Grey” director Sam Taylor-Johnson says she didn’t even consider including one of the book’s most notorious scenes in the movie.
It’s the scene where sadistic stud Christian Grey removes a tampon from his lover, Anastasia Steele, before they have sex.
Fans have been discussing for months whether that should be shown on the big screen. But that was just a lot of wasted energy, because Taylor-Johnson tells Variety that the issue was never up for debate.
“It didn’t make it into the movie,” Taylor-Johnson said. “It was never even discussed.”
Never miss a local story.
Producer Michael De Luca said the movie doesn’t need to show that scene.
“The book needed to put you in Ana’s shoes to be a successful experience,” De Luca told Variety.
“A lot of it was very literal. The movie didn’t need to do that. It’s a completely different medium.”
Stargazing says: Thank you!
“Fifty Shades Of Grey” hits theaters on February 13.
