Actress Kirsten Dunst has exposed what she calls Disney animators' dirty little secret on U.S. TV, suggesting the company's family friendly films feature segments of saucy adult humour.
The Spider-Man star was promoting her new movie Melancholia on late-night show Conan on Thursday (10Nov11) when she revealed all about what she has seen while scrutinising Disney films like The Lion King and The Little Mermaid.
She told the host, Conan O'Brien, "In The Lion King they have 's-e-x' (spelled out) in the clouds and in The Little Mermaid... the priest gets a boner (erection) at the end when Ariel is getting married."
And to prove her point she brought along a clip of the animated nuptials, which appeared to show the priest was aroused.
Dunst told the shocked TV host, "These animators, they want some entertainment for themselves."
However, further careful study of Dunst's claims suggest she's wrong - eagle-eyed Disney fans online claim the erect penis is actually the priest's knee and the cloud formation in The Lion King looks more like 's-f-x', perhaps a subtle tribute to Disney's special effects department.
