Gay Kiss: Cut

There was even supposed to be a gay kiss.

what happened? Gus Kenworthy says his cameo in the film originally included him “making out” with his on-screen boyfriend, played by “M3GAN” actor Brian Jordan Alvarez, but the scene didn’t make it into the movie.

“They said they had to cut it for time, but I think they cut it for Middle America,” the Olympic skier told me at the Gold Meets Golden benefit for Angel City Sports on Feb. 4 in Beverly Hills.

Kenworthy and Alvarez shot several takes of the kiss. “Some of them got raunchy,” Kenworthy said with a laugh, adding that he hopes at least one of them makes it into the director’s cut. “Release the tapes!” he said. “See if you can get that trending.”

“They used the script for one take, but then we did it like four or fives times where we would just ad-lib insults at each other and then make out,” Kenworthy said.

Reps for Tom Brady, Paramount Pictures and production company Fifth Season declined to comment for this story.
