Olivia Wilde Responds After Watching Censored Airline Version of 'Booksmart'

Olivia Wilde is reacting after watching a censored version of her movie Booksmart, which removed the film’s lesbian sex scene.

The 35-year-old actress and director viewed the edited version during a plane ride and noted all of the instances where the film had been changed.

“I finally had the chance to watch an edited version of Booksmart on a flight to see exactly what had been censored. Turns out some airlines work with a third party company that edits the movie based on what they deem inappropriate. Which, in our case, is … female sexuality? 🤔,” Olivia wrote on her Twitter.

She added that despite there already being a “viewer discretion is advised” warning, words like “vagina” were removed as well as a character’s “masturbating and UTI story.”

Olivia also noted that despite the editing, curse words like f**k were not removed from the film.

“What message is this sending to viewers and especially to women? That their bodies are obscene? That their sexuality is shameful? I urge every airline, especially those who pride themselves on inclusivity, to stop working with this third party company, and trust the parental advisory warning to allow viewers to opt out if they choose,” Olivia concluded.

Olivia Wilde Reacts to Airline Cutting 'Booksmart' Lesbian Sex Scene

An unspecified airline removed a scene from Booksmart featuring two of the female characters having sex.

The film’s director, Olivia Wilde, received a tweet alerting her to this, which said, “Tried watching Booksmart on the plane and they cut the ENTIRE lesbian hookup scene like not even a KISS was allowed! oh but don’t worry guys, the Straights got their kiss.”

Olivia responded, “This is truly a bummer. There is no nudity in this scene. What makes it too obscene for airplane viewing? What airline?”

“I don’t understand it,” Olivia elaborated. “There’s censorship airline to airline of films. There must be some kind of governing board to determine. We rated a certain way. If it’s not X rated, surely it’s acceptable on an airplane. There’s insane violence of bodies being ripped in half and yet a love scene between two women is censored from the film. It’s such an integral part of the character’s journey. My heart just broke. I don’t understand it. It’s confusing.”
