Jennifer Aniston demanded that a nude scene in her latest movie 'Wanderlust' be cut from the final version, out of consideration for her new beau Justin Theroux. An insider told The Wrap that a frontal topless scene was removed at the "last-minute" after Aniston had showdown talks with director Judd Apatow.
In the original version, the former Friends star goes topless in front of television cameras, however, the version screened in cinemas only features the actress from behind, with her bare body seen on a pixelated television screens - as they would appear on a regular news broadcast. A spokeswoman for Universal pictures, who are releasing Wanderlust, said, "The scene was shot a bunch of different ways, and we have the best possible version", while Aniston's publicist Stephen Huvane said, "The scene is how it was always supposed to be". Despite the statements, the movie insider who spoke with TheWrap said the comedy went through the editing process with full frontal nudity, though Aniston "pleaded" for an alternate version to be used because of her "blossoming relationship" with Theroux, whom she met while filming on the movie. According to the insider, Jennifer, "Decided it just wouldn't be right to share her naked breasts with anyone except her new beau".
In the movie, which hits screens on February 24, 2012, Aniston and Paul Rudd play a Manhattan couple who suddenly become unemployed and therefore seek an alternative lifestyle. They end up on a rural free-love commune, where they meet Seth, played by Theroux.
