Chinese actress Bai Ling has accused bosses of the latest Star Wars installment of cutting her scenes from the movie after discovering she posed for men's magazine Playboy.

The 34-year-old beauty poses with a light saber and very little clothing in the upcoming, racy spread, themed around her appearance in EPISODE III: REVENGE OF THE SITH.

And now Ling claims her scene was cut from Episode III after the Playboy session, stating, "I see the human body as beautiful and not pornographic, but maybe the Star Wars producers did not see what I did. I am in shock."

But creator and director George Lucas denies the allegations, hitting back, "She was cut out of the movie very early on. My daughter's in that same scene. My daughter was cut as well. My other daughter was in another scene and that was cut as well."
