'Desperate Housewives' executives cut steamy love scene
UPI News Service, 10/19/2006
Actor James Denton, who plays Mike the plumber on the U.S. TV drama "Desperate Housewives," has claimed show executives cut out a recent steamy sex scene.
The 43-year-old actor said at Sunday's Hollywood Style Awards that a scene in which he and actress Nicollette Sheridan have sex never made it past the ABC series' producers, said The Los Angeles Times.
"Nicollette is so darn sexy that they have to spend hours digitalizing out her sexiness," the actor said moments before awarding Sheridan a Siren Award at the annual awards ceremony.
"I just found out in post (production) that our scene, I think it airs next week so set your Tivos, was just too sexy," he added. "I asked them why they had to cut. I mean, we didn't do anything that crazy. They said, 'Well, she flipped her hair and the look on her face was just too hot.'"
The Times said the scene is part of an ongoing love triangle between Sheridan, Denton and actress Teri Hatcher's characters on the Sunday night series.
