Outrage Over Brown Bunny Sex Poster

Subscribe to Chloe Sevigny alerts

Community leaders in Los Angeles are fuming after a giant poster was erected in Hollywood showing Chloe Sevigny performing oral sex on Brown Bunny co-star Vincent Gallo.

The 18 metre (60 feet) poster has appeared on Sunset Boulevard next to the exclusive Chateau Marmont Hotel - to advertise the controversial film which stunned viewers at this year's (04) Cannes Film Festival and will hit limited cinemas in America this month (AUG04).

But local activists have threatened to tear the raunchy hording down.

The movie has provoked outrage because it features a graphic ten minute scene in which Sevigny actually performs fellatio on real-life former lover and Brown Bunny director Gallo.

But Sevigny recently defended the film's use of graphic sex: "There are a lot of misconceptions about the film.

"Most of the people who have been writing about it haven't even seen the film.

"When people do see it, they will realise that the sex in the movie is not in any way gratuitous, that is a truly heartbreaking movie. I am proud of it."
