Page Six is gossiping (well, I don't think they actaully do reporting, right?) that Bai Ling, the Chinese actress has had her scenes cut from Star Wars Episode III - Revenge of the Sith due to her upcoming appearance in the June issue of Playboy magazine.
"I just found out that my part has been completely cut out of the upcoming 'Star Wars' movie. I do not know what happened," Ling said.
"I posed for Playboy and it may have been doing that which upset [director] George Lucas. I did not know when 'Star Wars' was going to be released when my manager came to me and said that Playboy wanted me to pose topless."
Ling, who appears in the June issue, continued, "I did not know that Playboy was going to come out the same time as 'Star Wars.' I saw them as separate projects. I see the human body as beautiful and not pornographic, but maybe the 'Star Wars' producers did not see what I did. I am in shock."
Bai Ling was also seen out and about earlier this week, promoting Netflix online DVD rental service, along with Darth Vader and Chewbacca.
