Producers of Cher's new movie Stuck On You have cut a scene in the film in which the pop superstar gets raunchy with teenage star Frankie Muniz.

Even Cher was shocked when she first met the Malcolm In The Middle actor, who plays her lover in the film, because he looked like he was eight.

And although their hilarious bedroom scene had cast and crew rolling around in tears, film fans didn't get the joke and the scene was cut.

Cher explains, "I don't watch TV so all I knew was I'd be in bed with Frankie Muniz. I knew he was famous and I knew he had a TV show but I had no idea what he looked like.

"Out of the darkness comes this little boy who jumps in the bed and takes off his shirt and says, 'Alright, I've done my push-ups out there and I'm pumped and ready to go!'

"There was more to our scene but they cut it out because it was too much for the audience.

"I said, 'You've got to go to bed because you have a geography test tomorrow,' and he says, 'Oh, OK' and turns off the TV and rolls over like we're spooning and says, 'Can I at least touch your nips!'

"Everyone was laughing then but when they screened it people just didn't think it was funny. Hopefully it will end up on the DVD."
