Something fishy was going on at Sundance. Apparently a steamy sex scene with Katie Holmes and Aaron Eckhart in the movie Thank You for Smoking was mysteriously left out. Page Six reports:
In the flick, based on the best seller by Christopher Buckley, Holmes, who plays an investigative reporter, and Eckhart, who plays a tobacco lobbyist, enjoy a randy romp. But while that scene was still in the movie when it debuted at last year's Toronto Film Festival, it has vanished from the Sundance screenings, causing some to wonder if Holmes' fiancÃ©, Tom Cruise, used his staggering showbiz clout to kill the footage.
A spokeswoman for Fox Searchlight didn't seem to know what happened: "It's never been altered," she said of the finished film. "It will absolutely be released with that scene. We don't know what happened, but we're looking into it."
Jeez - just how much power does Tom have in Hollywood?
