A controversial movie poster showing Chloe Sevigny performing oral sex on her Brown Bunny co-star Vincent Gallo has been taken down from Hollywood's Sunset Boulevard.

The film caused a storm when it was screened at last year's (03) CANNES FILM FESTIVAL because it features a graphic ten minute scene in which Sevigny actually performs fellatio on real-life former lover and Brown Bunny director Gallo.

So local campaigners were furious when the hording appeared next to Tinseltown's exclusive Chateau Marmont Hotel.

Gallo defended the image, insisting the billboard was meant to "give the impression that the entire film is sophisticated and for adults".

But it has quickly been taken down, a film spokesperson reveals.
