Is middle America afraid of a gay kiss? Well, according to Gus Kenworthy, an out Olympian, a kissing scene was cut out from the recently released movie “80 for Brady.”
The official reason the kiss was cut from the film was because of time, but Kenworthy disputes with that.
“...I think they cut it for Middle America,” he told Variety.
In the movie’s original version, Kenworthy makes a cameo where he plays the role of Brian Jordan Alvarez’s boyfriend. There was a scene where they made out, but it was cut in the final product, according to Variety.
“Some of them got raunchy,” Kenworthy said. “Release the tapes! See if you can get that trending.”
The movie is a huge hit, nonetheless. The production has an 89% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes. At the box office last week, “80 for Brady” pulled in about $13 million, according to The Wrap. It was placed second behind the horror film “Knock at the Cabin,” which grossed $14.5 million.
Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno, Lily Tomlin and Sally Field star in the film as octogenarian New England Patriots fans who make the trek to Atlanta to watch the “all-time great quarterback” pull off a historic comeback Super Bowl win, OutSports reported. Billy Porter, an out man, also plays a halftime show choreographer.
