Emily Browning in SUCKER PUNCH

Australian born actress Emily Browning has held nothing back in regards to her sex scene with Mad Men's John Hamm getting cut in the upcoming film SUCKER PUNCH. And to be fair, if I had a sex scene with my man-crush John Hamm get removed from a film, I'd be fuming too.

The upcoming Zack Snyder film came under fire recently from the MPAA over the sex scene, which they did not feel was appropriate for its PG-13 rating. Browning recently discussed her frustration of the censorship with Nylon Magazine. Check out what she had to say about the scene after the break.

"I had a very tame and mild love scene with Jon Hamm. It was like heavy breathing and making out. It was hardly a sex scene...I think that it's great for this young girl to actually take control of her own sexuality. Well, the MPAA doesn't like that. They don't think a girl should ever be in control of her own sexuality because they're from the Stone Age. I don't know what the fuck is going on and I will openly criticize it, happily. So essentially, they got Zack to edit the scene and make it look less like she's into it. And Zack said he edited it down to the point where it looked like he was taking advantage of her. That's the only way he could get a PG-13 [rating] and he said, 'I don't want to send that message.' So they cut the scene!"

However, Browning does understand that the PG-13 rating is important for the accessibility of the film, saying she "likes the idea of younger girls being able to see it."

It will be interesting to see how Snyder does with a PG-13 rating, as his recent venture away from hard-R territory (LEGEND OF THE GUARDIANS: THE OWLS OF GA'HOOLE) yielded mixed results, to say the least.

SUCKER PUNCH comes out March 25.

    When I heard it had a PG-13 I was resolved I wouldn’t see it but I changed my mind in wanting to support the cast and crew (and Zack Snyder) for making an original film…

    And there will be a Director’s Cut for sure…
