Pirates of the Caribbean: Disney axed lewd Keira Knightley scene – Daily Express

The swashbuckling adventure movie introduced Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow before hitting the top of the box office and sparked a Disney franchise that has, for now, produced four sequels, with scope for more. But one scene left Disney executives concerned about how the film would be viewed.  During the events of the first Pirates film Knightley’s character, Elizabeth Swann, was captured by Captain Barbossa on The Black Pearl. After swapping pleasantries, Barbossa’s two lackeys, Pintel and Ragetti, told Swann she could attend dinner with the Captain, but there was a catch. In order to eat at the Captain’s table she would be forced to wear a dress he provided – or wear nothing at all. The young captive agreed to wear the dress, but the scene that directly followed was axed from the final movie. The scene showed Swann getting undressed and into her new frock to attend the dinner. On the other side of her door, Pintel and Ragetti stared at the young woman getting changed while giggling to themselves. (Via ScreenRant) The pair took great pleasure in cackling to themselves as they watched Swann take off her clothes – but it didn’t last long. After noticing the two pirates acting perversely, Swann attacked the peephole. Disney no doubt axed this scene as it involved Swann, who was played by 17-year-old star Knightley, being peeped on by the two pirates without her knowledge. As Pirates is mostly billed as a family action movie, this scene would have been massively out of place in the adventure.

She was a good sport and we just kind of did what we had to do, that’s the gig.” Knightley herself was quite pleased with the scene. She said: “I couldn’t ask for a better kissing scene with Johnny Depp actually. I think my 14-year-old self was yelping with pleasure. It was fantastic! What more can a girl ask for? I’ve got Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom and I get to kiss both of them. It’s wonderful!” See today’s front and back pages, download the newspaper, order back issues and use the historic Daily Express newspaper archive.
