One of the most notorious scenes from the Fifty Shades of Grey book will not appear in the movie, to the relief (or dismay?) of fans of the E.L. James series.
That scene in question? Let's just say it involves a feminine product.
Alas, the infamous Fifty Shades of Grey tampon scene was cut. In fact, Christian removing it from Ana so he can have sex with her, period and all, was not filmed.
Nor was filming even discussed, the director says. Why not?
Christian Grey pulling the tampon right out of Anastasia Steele's body so he can have sex with her during that time of the month was not a key plot point.
Apparently. Producer Michael De Luca says the novel is just ...
"The book needed to put you in Ana’s shoes to be a successful experience," he says, and E.L. James did just that, therefore, "A lot of it was very literal."
Conversely, "the movie didn’t need to do that" to tell the appropriate love story - or even the sexual story - as film is "a completely different medium."
