Denise Richards has forbidden her children from watching her lesbian love scenes in 1998 erotic thriller, Wild Things.
The former Bond girl says that her daughters, all under the age of 16, have come across the footage, but she’s banned them from viewing it as it’s ‘not age appropriate’.
The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star told Yahoo Lifestyle Australia: “I definitely did not give them a copy. I told them, ‘I don’t want you guys watching this’, because one of my daughters brought it up to me and I was shocked.
“A couple of friends had told her about it and I just said to her, ‘I would appreciate if you didn’t watch it’. It’s not age appropriate and it was a movie I did, it was a script I loved, it’s me being creative. I worked with amazing actors and one day if you do see it, you may not agree with my decision but that’s what mum decided to do’.”
The scene shows a young Denise passionately kissing female co-star Neve Campbell in a swimming pool.
Denise added: “My girls are starting to get older. They have friends saying, ‘I saw this picture of your mum.’
“It’s weird for them, to see their mum in something that’s sexy or different. I think it would be very rude for me if it were my parents.”
Her daughters’ friends also watch their appearances on her latest show, The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. Richards said: “If they want to be part of it, they can. If they don’t, they don’t have to. I would never want them to do anything they don’t want to do.
“They’re on the show a little bit and there are moments their friends are there too, but their friends’ parents watch it and their friends do. I was surprised that their friends see it because they’re younger and it’s kind of an adult show.”
