British actor Paul Bettany is disappointed his nude scene was deleted from hit romantic comedy WIMBLEDON - because test audiences felt it was out of place.

Bettany bared his bottom to the cameras but the scene was later re-shot with the 33-year-old wearing underwear following the negative audience reaction.

He says, "I was a bit gutted as I had worked very hard to get into trim for the role."

However, fans of the film have bombarded the film's producers with requests to reinstate the deleted scene and the DVD will now feature both versions.
