Titanic China censor: 100th Titanic Anniversary, The cuts to the infamous scene, in which Winslet’s character Rose poses nde while Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) paints her portrait, were ordered by government officials after concerns that the multi-dimensional effects would tempt viewers to reach out and grab the Oscar-winner’s breasts.
As a result, the scene is now being shown in Chinese cinemas with just Winslet’s head and shoulders visible as she reclines on the chaise longue.
‘Considering the vivid 3D effects, we fear viewers may reach out their hands for a touch and thus interrupt other people’s viewing,’ said an official at the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television.

‘To avoid potential conflicts between viewers and out of consideration of building a harmonious ethical social environment, we’ve decided to cut off the nudity scenes.’
The decision has not proven altogether popular, with one Chinese blogger taking to the internet to express their disappointment.
‘I waited 15 years to see 3D bubs,’ the writer complained, ‘not a 3D iceberg.’
However the film – which has been re-released in the new eye-popping format to mark the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the famous ship – has still proven popular.
The re-issue took $7.3m on its first day of release in China – the second-highest opening ever for a movie at cinemas there.
Winslet recently revealed she was embarrassed by the idea of seeing the sex scenes in the movie in 3D.
