Actress Megan Fox dished Friday on Facebook about a scene that was cut from her movie, "This is 40." The scene was deleted from the movie itself, so despite the fact that the movie has been in theaters since Dec. 21, you won't be able to see it any other way until the DVD comes and and (we assume) restores the scene.
The footage is, of course, never-before-seen. It's full of funny lines from Jason Segel, Megan Fox, and Chris O'Dowd.
Discussing his sharing of the deleted scene, Apatow said:
I'm sure when they envisioned the Internet they thought it would be a great resource for doctors and scientists, or even a productive way to further global philanthropy.
Personally, I am happy that it affords me a direct link to show fans some of my favorite jokes that never made it into the movie.
It was, of course, a comedy, and we'd expect nothing less from Apatow, who wrote, directed, and co-produced the film.
"This is 40" is a sequel to the 2007 film "Knocked Up." It stars Paul Rudd (Pete) and Leslie Mann (Debbie). In the film, viewers get to see the continuing lives of middle-aged married couple Pete and Debbie as they both deal with turning 40. For both of them, their jobs and their children Sadie and Charlotte add stress to their relationship, on top of the typical age 40 crises.
Megan Fox, by the way, enters the movie as Debbie now owns a boutique and Desi (Megan Fox) is one of her employees. At one point in the movie, Debbie is amazed by Fox's breasts, and asks her "Are those things real?"
"This is 40" had an estimated budget of $35 million; as of Jan. 13, 2013, it had a domestic take of about $61.6 million.
