Nude scene cut from 'End of the World'

LOS ANGELES, June 25 (UPI) -- A full frontal nude shot of Colin Farrell in "Home at the End of the World" has been cut because U.S. test audiences cheered, disrupting a poignant scene.

Members of both sexes reacted enthusiastically at a recent screening upon seeing the Irish actor naked, prompting the film's producers to modify the scene in hopes of keeping moviegoers focused on the storyline, E! Online reported Friday.

"None of us are prudish, Colin Farrell least of all, but when we saw that it was pulling people out of the movie -- why would we do that to the story?" said John Hart, producer.

All the fuss over Farrell's nakedness led Michael Mayer, the film's director, to trim the scene in which Farrell's character walks out of his bedroom unclothed. Now, he'll be naked to the navel.

The R-rated film about a bisexual love triangle among two former childhood friends, played by Farrell and Dallas Roberts, and a free-spirited roommate, played by Robin Wright Penn, will be released July 23.
