Daily Express | Showbiz :: Ratner puts personal paraplegic sex encounter into new film.
The Rush Hour director reveals his odd short, as part of new movie New York I Love You, is based on a real episode during his youth in Miami, Florida. But he had to tone down the sex scene in the movie - because producers couldn't stomach the idea of his lead actor, Anton Yelchin, making love to a tied-up paraplegic woman. Ratner explains, "It's probably my most personal film. When I sent the original script, which is autobiographical, the producers would not let me film it because, in the original ending, she (the girl) is a cripple, and they have sex as she's hanging from a tree in Central Park.
