Taylor Kitsch talks to MTV news about equal opportunity nudity and violence in upcoming Oliver Stone movie, Savages.
“I was pitching full frontal. Long, slow-motion shots. But Oliver didn’t want it,” Kitsch joked when asked about the more equal opportunity/ semi-naked scenes. “No, I mean it’s all part of it. Look, the movie’s called ‘Savages,’ it’s directed by Oliver Stone. I think we got away with just that, considering what this could have been,” he said. “So it’s all part of it, you sign up for it. I’m not going to complain about it, I think it was done really tastefully and it actually does serve the story.”
According to the Washington Post, Kitsch was interviewed in LA and talked about third time being the charm with Savages after coming off of two underperforming big budget movies, John Carter and Battleship.
Now, Kitsch has a third time at bat with Oliver Stone’s drug-war thriller “Savages,” opening Friday.
While the actor regrets the two previous movies flopped, he’s actually a bit relieved that he can take jobs as they come without having to work around sequel schedules had those films developed into franchises.
“Maybe it’s a blessing in disguise that it died, and I’m not tied to these things for the next 10 years,” said Kitsch, 31. “I’m free to do whatever I want now. If I want to do something in January, February, March, April, I don’t have to go through two studios to be greenlit.”
