Christian Slater Banned His Daughter From Seeing His New Movie


After Turkey banned the new Lars Von Trier latest movie , Christian Slater also said that his daughter will never see it.

Slater says that he is confused why many countries wish to censor the movie for the big screens, despite its many explicite scenes.

In the movie’s defense he says, “It’s pretty crazy. We live in a society where violence is more acceptable than the act of lovemaking. It’s sort of a weird twist and feels at times certainly backwards. Some of the things that we see that do pass on our televisions and films – like gore and brutality… As long as we’re hurting each other, fine, but we actually show someone having … or making love and it’s a much more taboo subject.”

“It (film) certainly has a provocative title and gets people thinking about the movie in one particular direction, but when you actually sit there and watch it, you end up seeing a very emotional and passionate journey. I think there really is a lot of heart and soul in this.”

On the subject of his daughter’s privilege to see it, Slater said, “My daughter will never see it. I was having a conversation with my agent in the car on speakerphone and my soon-to-be wife was sitting next to me and he said, ‘There is this movie, and my wife looked at me. I was like, ‘What am I getting involved with here?’”

“Obviously I was not required to do the challenging things. ”
