New York: Michelle Williams caused controversy with her graphic sex scenes in the film `Blue Valentine` but the Oscar nominated actress considers it an achievement.

The `Brokeback Mountain` star and her co-star Ryan Gosling share a oral sex scene in the indie-flick which has earned both of them Golden Globe nominations.

The scene had got the film a temporary NC-17 rating, which was later changed to R after protest, but Williams says that she is proud of it, reported New York Post online.

"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," said the 30-year-old actress.

The actress added that it was she who insisted that the scene be a part of the final cut.

"When we shot that scene, both Ryan and Derek said to me, `If this bothers you when you see it in the movie, we`ll take it out`. But I wanted it," she explained.
