Katie Holmes Nude Scene Mysteriously Vanishes

Page Six (full article after the jump) is reporting that a steamy Katie Holmes nude scene from the film Thank You For Smoking has mysteriously vanished from the print shown this week at the Sundance Film Festival.

The film’s director, Jason Reitman said it was just a technical glitch, but the online rumour mill has been generating a lot of speculation that the scene may have been removed by some interference from the Scientology camp, controlled by head moron, Tom Cruise. Cruise’s beard, I mean bride-to-be, is currently pregnant with what is believed to be Cruise’s child, but we are awaiting DNA evidence to prove that claim.

A spokeswoman for Fox Searchlight didn’t seem to know what happened: “It’s never been altered,” she said of the finished film. “It will absolutely be released with that scene. We don’t know what happened, but we’re looking into it.”

Responding to the same question at another screening, Reitman quipped, “If you want to see a sex scene with Katie Holmes, rent ‘The Gift’ “- the 2000 movie in which the former “Dawson’s Creek” cutie appears topless.

So it would seem that the scene will be back in the film when it hits theatres in limited release on March 17, 2006. And then you can all catch a glimpse of what Tom Cruise is pretending to love.

January 24, 2006 — A STEAMY sex scene between Katie Holmes and Aaron Eckhart has been mysteriously snipped out of the version of “Thank You for Smoking” being screened at the Sundance Film Festival.

In the flick, based on the best seller by Christopher Buckley, Holmes, who plays an investigative reporter, and Eckhart, who plays a tobacco lobbyist, enjoy a randy romp. But while that scene was still in the movie when it debuted at last year’s Toronto Film Festival, it has vanished from the Sundance screenings, causing some to wonder if Holmes’ fiancé, Tom Cruise, used his staggering showbiz clout to kill the footage.

A spokeswoman for Fox Searchlight didn’t seem to know what happened: “It’s never been altered,” she said of the finished film. “It will absolutely be released with that scene. We don’t know what happened, but we’re looking into it.”

When director Jason Reitman was asked about the missing sequence during a Q&A session, he joked that it had been lost in a “technical glitch” during a reel change. Responding to the same question at another screening, Reitman quipped, “If you want to see a sex scene with Katie Holmes, rent ‘The Gift’ “- the 2000 movie in which the former “Dawson’s Creek” cutie appears topless.
