Gallo Upset Over Poster Controversy

LATEST: Movie star VINCENT GALLO is upset his controversial poster for new movie BROWN BUNNY has been stripped down from its Sunset Boulevard, Hollywood, billboard - because he thought it was "beautiful."

The huge promotional poster, which depicted a scene near the end of the picture in which Gallo's character has oral sex performed on him by CHLOE SEVIGNY's character, was deemed offensive by many complaining motorists.

Gallo, who also directed the controversial film, says, "I'm extremely disappointed. I just wanted to make what I thought would be the most beautiful billboard in the world.

"I used very extreme, bold composition and font and imagery because I felt that it related to the aesthetic sensibility of the film. Unfortunately, the billboard was reduced to something that it really wasn't."
