The actress, who was shocked by the decision, said there was nothing 'scandalous" about the shoot, reports the Daily Express. “When we shot that scene, both Ryan and (director) Derek (Cianfrance) said to me, 'If this bothers you when you see it in the movie, we'll take it out"," she said.
“I thought, 'I've never seen that before in a movie and I'm proud to be the first. Good on us for making that happen". As the woman in the situation that was in question, I found absolutely nothing scandalous, tawdry or disgusting about it," she added.
Film censors at the Motion Picture Association of America's Classification and Rating Administration later reversed the movie"s rating to an R after studio bosses challenged their original decision.
