Washington: Olivia Wilde was very upset when she was told by producers of ‘The Change-UP’ that she cannot hire a vagina double to show her character’s tattooed genitals in the flick.
The 27-year-old American actress suggested the idea for a scene in which she gets a tattoo along with her co-star Ryan Reynolds, but producers were a little edgy about what she wanted to do and the extent to which she wanted to do it.
“I get it in a very delicate spot... It’s a vagina tattoo... I was like, ‘You have to show the tattoo if you set it up for the audience...’ and they were like, ‘No, we don’t need to show the vagina in the movie’,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
“And I was like, ‘Well, you know, I’m willing to hire my vagina double right now... because I, as an audience member..., I wanna see it,” she said.
Despite many efforts on the part of the ‘Cowboys and Aliens’ star, including acting out as though she really had a tattoo inked on her vagina, the director chose not to show the tattoo.
“I want it to make sense... We get tattoos and there’s a scene later where we’ve just had these tattoos the night before... and I walked into the scene when we were rehearsing, like, ‘Ooh, ooh...’ and they were like, ‘What are you doing? Why are you walking like that?’ I said, ‘Well, I got the vagina tattoo the night before so I’d probably still be sore, right?’” she said.
“They were like, ‘Nobody wants to see that, don’t do that, don’t do that walk,’ and I was like, ‘It doesn’t make sense. We’re being irresponsible to the children out there who might go and get vagina tattoos, expecting to walk normally the next day’,” she added.
