Keaton Set To Shock With Cancer Survivor Movie Tribute
Brave DIANE KEATON is set to shock in her new movie THE FAMILY STONE, by appearing with a fake mastectomy in one sex scene.
The actress plays breast cancer survivor SYBIL STONE in the film and agreed to pose topless in one scene with a fake surgical breast removal on show - as a tribute to real-life cancer fighters.
Oscar winner Keaton reveals she actually fought for the controversial bedroom scene, where her character shows off her scarred chest to movie husband CRAIG T NELSON, because she hates the way such delicate scenes have been approached in the past.
She says, "I've seen so many of these cancer movies and there's always the horror of the reveal. You see the back of the woman and they always play it that way.
"This scene was so sweet because, first of all, it was set up (in the film) that I have this illness in kind of a mysterious way - so little was made of it.
"It's dealt with in a way that gives so much respect to people who go through this (breast cancer) in their life that you live with the illness.
"It's not that you're horrified (about losing your breasts). Your life goes on and you still make love with your husband."
