Smith Has Manhood Chopped From I, Robot

WILL SMITH has had his manhood chopped out of new movie I, ROBOT in America, but is the sight of his penis will thrill fans in Europe.

Smith bares all in a shower scene in the new sci-fi adventure film, which stormed to the top of the American box office at the weekend, but fans in the US will miss the actor's full frontal shot thanks to a little last-minute digital work.

The actor chose to reveal all in the scene to show how vulnerable his paranoid character is - but producers feared censors would cause a fuss, and cut the sight of Smith's manhood from the film.

The disappointed star says, "It's interesting because America is the only place that it's really a big deal.

"The scene in this movie was full frontal nudity, but they had to digitally remove it. It was the most expensive CGI shot in the movie. I hope the nude scene appears in other countries."

Smith only plucked up the courage to take on the shower scene in the first place after watching HARVEY KEITEL appear totally nude in controversial director ABEL FERRARA's 1992 movie, BAD LIEUTENANT.

He says, "I saw Bad Lieutenant with Harvey Keitel and I looked at that scene, and Harvey Keitel is just standing there butt naked, and it's almost like the attitude is like, 'Yeah, look at this here.'

"I'd love to be that comfortable with nudity, but I'll never be that good an actor."
