Director Doug Liman fears the shocking sex scenes between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in new movie Mr And Mrs Smith are so realistic, fans of Pitt's estranged wife Jennifer Aniston will boycott the film.

Pitt and Jolie have repeatedly denied reports they started a passionate affair on the movie's set, causing the heart-throb's high-profile split from Aniston in January (05).

But Liman is terrified Aniston's loyal admirers will see the graphic onscreen love-making and presume he has captured their moment of betrayal on film.

And his anxieties sparked a vicious war of words with producer DAVE MATALON, who wanted to delete the scenes to avoid losing audience figures.

Liman says, "Matalon said, 'I don't want to lose that audience of people who are huge Jennifer Aniston fans, who are going to hate Angelina Jolie because the sex scene's too sexy.

"People will see the sex scene and say, 'Oh that's how Angie did it'. It'll be like , 'She used her wiles to seduce him'."
