Highlight Story

Actress Emily Blunt has pulled out of a film in which she was paired opposite British comic Russell Brand, as the sex scenes between the duo were too explicit.

The Devil Wears Prada star was to play Brand's love interest in Get Him To The Greek, which is currently being filmed in Las Vegas.

However, according to Britain's Mail on Sunday newspaper, the 26-year-old actress was scared that the intimate love scenes could tarnish her reputation and thus turned down the role.

"Emily provisionally agreed to play a sex-crazed pop singer who beds Brand’s character. But then she got cold feet and pulled out,” Contactmusic quoted a source as telling the publication.

The source added: “She’s no prude but the stumbling block was that her character had far too many explicit love scenes."
