Kate Upton - Kate Upton Causes A Stir With 'Three Stooges' Saucy Nun

The Three Stooges movie has come under fire from the Catholic Church for its depiction of nuns. Kate Upton plays one of the nuns in the film, and looks rather saucy doing so, wearing a bikini instead of a habit. It's caused outcry, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"In the 1950s, Hollywood generally avoided crude fare and was respectful of religion. Today it specializes in crudity and trashes Christianity, especially Catholicism," Catholic League President Bill Donohue said. "Enter The Three Stooges. The movie is not just another remake: It is a cultural marker of sociological significance, and what it says about the way we've changed is not encouraging." He also attacked Larry David's character Sister Mary Mengele and comments that the star had made over on 'The Conan O'Brien Show.' "He said to Conan O'Brien that dressing as a nun in the film makes it easy to understand why nuns are 'so mean,' " Donohue said. "He explains: 'You know, the outfits might have something to do with that. Forget about the fact that they never have sex. If you give me a chance of no sex or having to wear that outfit the rest of my life, I would definitely take the no sex.' "
However Fox have hit back, stating "As the Stooges have proved over time, laughter is a universal medicine. The nuns that Mr. Donohue alludes to, are in fact, caring, heroic characters in the movie, albeit within the framework of a very broad comedy," the spokesperson continued. "And as far as the nun attire, I think we did the audience a favor by letting Kate Upton wear the nun-kini rather than Larry David - it could have gone either way. We invite you to see the movie and decide for yourselves."
