Getting Jiggy With His Piggly Wiggly

Upon learning that Brad Pitt would have a nude scene in Troy, Will Smith reportedly lobbied hard for a nude scene in I, Robot. Alas, Will's willie has been IOL: digitally chopped out of the movie.

Smith bares all in a shower scene in the new sci-fi adventure film, which stormed to the top of the American box office at the weekend, but fans in the US will miss the actor's full frontal shot thanks to a little last-minute digital work.

The actor chose to reveal all in the scene to show how vulnerable his paranoid character is - but producers feared censors would cause a fuss, and cut the sight of Smith's manhood from the film.

The disappointed star says: "It's interesting because America is the only place that it's really a big deal.

"The scene in this movie was full frontal nudity, but they had to digitally remove it. It was the most expensive CGI shot in the movie. I hope the nude scene appears in other countries."

Perhaps the scene cutting is a way to pump up DVD sales of the movie.

- All puns intentional...

I've seen I, Robot and having Smith's Johnson front and center would have been gratuitous. I know, that's the point, but still - no need to add that to a movie just because you can, imho.

I miss the old days when it was just women showing their stuff on camera.
