The Three Stooges Movie Causes Uproar With Catholics
A scene in the new Three Stooges movie has some Catholics upset and the head of the Catholic League is making his fury known. INSIDE EDITION has the story.
A sexy scene from The Three Stooges movie has some Catholics up in arms. The scene includes supermodel Kate Upton as a nun wearing a barely there bikini.
You last saw Upton on the cover of Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. The 20-year-old was famously discovered after making a video at a basketball game that went viral.
Now, Upton is in a major movie, wearing a so-called "Nun-kini," that leaves little to the imagination. She's wearing a nun's habit and a crucifix.
Bill Donohue is the president of the Catholic League and he says Upton's cameo is gratuitous and insulting.
"It's like they decided to remake The Three Stooges but we got to find a way to stick it to Catholics," Donohue told INSIDE EDITION.
Also in the movie, comedian Larry David plays a nun, he is the cruel Mother Superior.
The studio behind the movie, Twentieth Century Fox, responded to Donohue's criticisms and said, "The nuns that Mr. Donohue alludes to are, in fact caring, heroic characters in the movie, albeit within the framework of a very broad comedy."
And they fanned the flames by joking about Upton's sexy swimsuit.
"I think we did the audience a favor by letting Kate Upton wear the 'Nun-kini' rather than (co-star) Larry David," said Twentieth Century Fox.
