Something weird is apparently going on with Katie Holmes's new film Thank You For Smoking during its screenings at Sundance. Seems as though peeps are a buzz because a 12 second sex scene featuring Holmes has spookily disappeared from the film between the time it premiered in Toronto to now at Sundance. Always looking for a scandal, many people are wondering if Tom Cruise, not wanting his future wife and baby mamma to show her goods anymore on the big screen, flexed his Hollywood power muscles and requested the cut. Seems a bit extreme to me and a horrifying thought at that, I don't buy it. The films director Jason Reitman is claiming he knew nothing about the cut and told the L.A. Times he was "in shock" when on Saturday night, he saw the scene was cut from the film. Reitman isn't pointing fingers at Cruise, instead blaming a projectionist who allegedly cut the scene while changing reels. Hmmm....probably true, but also coincidental and convenient if you ask me. Who knows though, if this director has any brains, wouldn't this be the perfect way to bring publicity to his little 'ol film? I think he may be the one holding the scissors, not Cruise. Even more interesting are reports that after the shocking "error" was discovered at Saturday night's screening, Holmes's sex scene was still mysteriously missing from the picture when it screened on Sunday night.
