Justin Timberlake’s naughty party scene uncut in ‘Social Network’

HollywoodNews.com: The kinky party scene depicting Napster co-founder Sean Parker will remain in the final cut of “The Social Network.”

Scott Rudin, the producer of the Facebook bio-pic, had mentioned that he might edit out the sequence which follows Parker giving a speech at a party where young women offer lines of cocaine on their bare breasts.

The Hollywood Reporter had the scoop about the full scene remaining.

Parker was a key figure in the early days of Facebook and was a confidant of the website’s founder Mark Zuckerberg. In the film, Parker is played by Justin Timberlake. Matthew Hiltzik, a publicist for Parker, declined to comment on the decision. Parker left Facebook after a cocaine-related arrest in 2005. Rudin was concerned that the sequence would cost him his PG-13 rating.

“The Social Network” will be released by Sony on October 1.

The Hollywood Reporter also reports:

We hear Facebook lawyers also have voiced concerns about the “Social Network” marketing campaign, which uses a logo that is very similar to Facebook branding.

But a Facebook rep downplayed the film in general and the Parker scene in particular.

“Maybe the movie is a sign that Facebook has become meaningful to people, even if the movie is fiction,” spokesman Larry Yu tells us. “What the movie may or may not contain is not what we’re focused on. What matters more is building a useful, innovative service that people enjoy using to connect and share.”
