Rumors have been swirling that Hailee Steinfeld ‘s character had a nude scene, but the script has been edited so that she no longer shows skin. Thank goodness!
The ladies of The View threw around rumors that True Grit actress Hailee Stienfeld, 14, would have to take off her clothes in a scene for the upcoming movie Romeo and Juliet — but fortunately, that’s no longer going to happen!
The film’s director, Carlo Carlei, told Entertainment Weekly the script has been revised for Hailee.
“In the original adaptation…there was a lovemaking scene that included nudity for the married Romeo and Juliet. This script was written with a 20-year-old actress in mind,” he said. “As soon as Hailee Steinfeld was cast, all nudity and lovemaking have been excised from the script. It will be romantic and age-appropriate for a 14-year-old.”
UK’s Sunday Times and Daily Mail both released part of the movie’s script that required Hailee‘s character to disrobe.
“They start undressing each other – slowly, gently and carefully until they are naked. They are eternal figures in a Raphael painting. Romeo then carries her to bed, kissing her again and again as they explore uncharted territory. Then they make love, transported into each other’s soul.”
We’re glad the script has been revised for Hailee — we cannot wait to see her as Juliet!
More Hailee here!
