Actors Bill Paxton and Chloe Sevigny “went ballistic” on Wednesday after the actress was asked about an explicit sex scene from a previous film on a daytime TV talk show.
The two were appearing on chat show The View to promote their new HBO series Big Love, about a Mormon husband and his three wives.
One of The View‘s co-hosts, Joy Behar, brought up an infamous scene from independent film Brown Bunny, where Sevigny orally pleasures co-star Vincent Gallo.
Sources on set say Paxton and Sevigny masked their fury from viewers but “went ballistic” off camera, with Paxton reportedly vowing never to appear on the show again.
Sevigny has frequently discussed the controversial scene, but Paxton didn’t want her to have to relive it on the sedate daytime talk show.
The View spokesman Karl Nilsson says, “Co-host Joy Behar is known for her good-natured candor, as well as her humor, and meant no disrespect.”
Viewers on the east coast watched live as the cast squirmed in their seats, but all talk of the incident was cut out of the west coast broadcast, which aired later.
Nilsson refused to say who requested that the conversation regarding Brown Bunny be edited out.
