Test Audiences Thought Kevin Costner's Penis Was Hilarious
Have you ever wanted to see Kevin Costner's penis? If so, you were probably a mom in 1993. And you're not alone. Costner also wants you to see his Untouchables. During the filming of 1999's For Love Of The Game, Costner shot a scene wherein he showered with his dick out. Which, to be fair, is the best way to shower.
From the beginning, producers were wary of including the scene, as it automatically gave the film a hard R rating and Costner's contract specified a clean PG-13. Still, like a frat boy with an iPhone, the producers agreed to go ahead and stick that dong out there and see what the response was. Like most dick pics, the reactions were humiliating. Test audiences "giggled" at the non-comedic scene, and one viewer asked the question we all ask every morning when we wake up: "Do we really need to see Kevin Costner's penis?"
Universal PicturesIt wasn't the popped fly audiences are typically looking for in a baseball movie.
The scene was ultimately cut due to studio concerns about length, content, and basic human decency. Of course, that pissed Costner right the the hell off. He accused the producers of lacking "real courage," and insisted that he refused to collaborate with people who make decisions "based not on taste, but on some kind of instinct about an audience. It just flies in the face of who I am." That's easy for him to say. That was the only thing flying in his face.
