Blame it on that Rihanna reign… With his new movie Kick-A$s coming under fire over explicit language used by actress Chloe Moretz, who was 11 during filming, British actor Aaron Johnson countered by pointing out that Rihanna’s language in many of her songs is inappropriate for children, yet it plays on the radio at all hours with little to no censorship. Pop the hood for his beef and see a few candids of RihRih caught lookin busted.
Moretz uses the ‘C’ word in the R-rated action film, in which she plays tough-talking Hit-Girl – and her language has become a big issue for politically correct watchdogs.
Even the child star, who is now 13, admits she wouldn’t be allowed to get away with the language she uses in the film at home, but co-star Johnson has no problems with the script – and wants critics to look past the expletives and see a talented young actress with a very bright future.
He says, “The controversy is bizarre because we put an R rating on this movie; a certificate that says this is what this content is.
“I mean, on the radio you have Rihanna playing where it’s like, ‘Come on rude boy can you get it up/Are you big enough?/Come on take it, take it; that’s what love is…’ – there’s eight-year-old girls singing songs like that! I think that’s more controversial than something like Kick-A*s.
“Then there’s the mothers who’ll complain and then take their daughters to beauty pageants. These kids are gonna be f**ked up by the time they’re 16, all wanting to get face-lifts. Or they play with a plastic Barbie doll and think that’s what you’re supposed to look like when you grow up.
“It’s all wrong. That’s controversial to me. The fact that the critics can’t look past that and see a talented and brilliant actress is beyond me. They’re just stupid people.”
We think he has a point… And he didn’t even mention how this broad is always romping around half-naked! Great role model for young girls right?
