Naked Daryl Hannah in Splash < ANCENSORED
Disney Plus’ butt cover-up hides a much bigger problem
The movie, directed by Ron Howard, stars Tom Hanks as a young man who falls in love with a mermaid named Madison after she saves him from drowning. The film, which was originally rated PG, included two scenes which featured Madison walking around naked in front of the Statue of Liberty, and another, when she dives into the ocean showing her nude behind. An uncensored version of the film premiered on the streaming service back in February, but it has since been updated to adhere to the studio's modern censorship standards. In one amended scene, Madison's hair has been lengthened to look like it now covers her rear, while her bottom has been blurred out in another.
