China censors Kate Winslet's breasts in Titanic 3D so people don't reach out to touch them

Chinese movie-goers will get less boob for their buck when they go to see Titanic 3D.

Kate Winslet's famous bare-breasted life drawing scene has been censored in a bid to promote 'a harmonious ethical social environment', according to China's State of Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT) classification board. Because the sinking of the Titanic and deaths of 1514 people is totally harmonious, right?

A SARFT official told Offbeat China: "Considering the vivid 3D effects, we fear that viewers may reach out their hands for a touch and thus interrupt other people's viewing. 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."

If you didn't think about grabbing out before, it'll cross your mind now!

While Chinese audiences are flocking to the James Cameron 3D re-release, some are upset about Kate being shown only from the neck up in the pivotal romantic scene between her and Leonardo DiCaprio.

"I've been waiting almost 15 years, and not for the 3D icebergs," one Chinese blogger complained.

The nude scene was fully intact in the original screenings of the film in 1998.
