Full of Pride

Leave it to Gatecrasher Ben Widdicombe to break the news about packages in Speedos being too large for some.

It seems that when Lions Gate went to the MPAA to get approval on its poster for its new flick Pride – about an African-American swim team, starring Bernie Mac and Terrence Howard – they were initially rejected. Something about the art being too, ahem, au natural.

“They actually accused the film company of digitally enhancing actor Evan Ross (r.) [son of Diana Ross],” laughs a snitch. “The MPAA wouldn’t approve the poster. Lionsgate had to get back to them with the original art to prove they hadn’t manipulated anything.”

Ticket sales among the gays, naturally, will surge.
