U.S. Still Leading World in Nude Celebrities
A much-anticipated nude scene featuring Bollywood star Kangana Ranaut (albiet covered in soap bubbles) has been excised by Indian censors from her upcoming film Raaz -- The Mystery Continues. "What is wrong with the scene?" complained director Mukesh Bhatt. "You don't have a bath with your clothes on!" Bhatt also reveals that Ranaut was "wearing a bodysuit" in the scene, which may take some of the sting out of it for disappointed fans. Other foreign jurisdictions, notably Australia, are holding up their end, so to speak, in the amateur department, but America remains the envy of the world in nude celebrities -- in movies, on television, and in the gutter press. Be proud.
