Chinese censors have cut scenes from the 3D re-release of ‘Titanic’.

The State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT) has removed the fleeting glimpses of nudity from the film, most notably the scene where Leonardo DiCaprio sketches a topless Kate Winslet.










Initial reports suggested that SARFT issued the following bizarre statement about the cuts:

“Considering the vivid 3D effects, we fear that viewers may reach out their hands for a touch and thus interrupt other people's viewing.

“To avoid potential conflicts between viewers and out of consideration of building a harmonious ethical social environment, we've decided to cut off the nudity scenes.”

However, The Hollywood Reporter later claimed that the quotes, that were widely reported in the press, were a satirical joke that had originated on movie blogs in China.

The website said that SARFT had actually not made any official comment on the cuts.

None of the controversy seems to have hit the box office of the film though. 'Titanic 3D' took home the 2nd highest gross of all time on its opening day in China.
