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."
