Frankly, I don’t want to see Ben Affleck‘s penis in any dimension, but since he gets it out in Gone Girl, he’s been doing a lot of interviews to promote the film and questions are always asked about the full-frontal nudity. It’s apparently a short scene (no pun intended) but totally necessary to the character or whatever – and it looks better in 3-D!
From MTV News:
“I try to get it in every movie,” Affleck joked, after MTV pointed out that the movie includes what may be the first onscreen appearance of his Affl-ick. However, in this case it was director David Fincher who insisted on shining a bright light where the sun don’t shine, all in service of a film that captured the no-holds-barred cynicism of its source material.
“It’s ironic, because David [Fincher] said to me from the beginning, this is a warts and all movie. It can have no vanity. You have to see the naked underbelly of this character,” Affleck continued. And yes, when he says “naked underbelly,” he means it literally as well as figuratively.
“There’s some brief, ah, very brief nudity, I think,” Affleck hedged. But when reminded that people might well be going to see “Gone Girl” for literally no other reason than to get a glimpse of his wang, he capitulated.
“The penis is in there!” Affleck said. “It’s IMAX penis! You’ve gotta pay fifteen bucks to see it in 3D… it’s better in 3D.”
Uh… LOL, I guess?
I’ve read the book so I’m not quite sure if I want to see the movie, especially since hearing that they completely rewrote the entire climax of the story for the movie version. How is that a thing that you do? I know it has to be good for cinema, but… wouldn’t you just not adapt it if the main crux of the story didn’t fit?
Anyone else read the book? Do you plan on seeing the movie?
