McGregor Slams American Censors

Actor EWAN McGREGOR has hit out at American censors for cutting a full frontal nude scene of himself out of his controversial new movie YOUNG ADAM.

The Scottish star can't comprehend why film watchdogs are axing an image of his penis from the final cut, when they happily allow scenes of violence and bloodshed into US cinemas.

He rants, "They are cutting me off in America. You can blow thousands of people's heads off with a semi-automatic machine gun but you can't show a picture of my willy.

"I believe they're cutting the scene out. They're a bit worried about willies in the States, they are a bit worried about seeing my old chap. It's not something I am worried about terribly much."
