Dreamers Star Blasts American Attitude To Nudity

THE DREAMERS actor MICHAEL PITT has hit out at American censors - for making a fuss over the nudity and sex in the BERNARDO BERTOLUCCI movie.

Pitt joins fellow stars QUEEN LATIFAH, MISSY ELLIOTT, MOBY and CHRISTINA AGUILERA who have all spoken out about attitudes to bare flesh and sexual content following JANET JACKSON's breast exposure at the SUPER BOWL last week (01FEB04).

Pitt says of the film, "It is graphic, but if we were shown the lead actress having her head blown off by a gun, the censors wouldn't be cutting it - they won't show the human body.

"You know, I'm not very smart, but If I had children, I'd much rather they saw a love scene than violence."
