For months, Fifty Shades of Grey fans have heard mixed reports on what the final cut would look like ... You know, in terms of just how much sex the producers and Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) were going to push for and end up allowing in mainstream theaters. About a year ago, screenwriter Kelly Marcel insisted the final version would end up being NC-17. Later producer Dana Brunetti said he'd love to try to release two versions of the film -- one R-rated, the other NC-17.
Well, now that the film is in the can and in the hands of its editors, what's that contentious official rating going to be?
Thankfully, we don't have to wait any longer to find out. That's because at the Oscars last night, Brunetti didn't mind going there.

When asked by Access Hollywood's Billy Bush if it would be NC-17, Brunetti shook his head vehemently and said, "No, no, no, no." Bush clarified, "R? Just straight up R?" And the exec producer said, "Yeah, yeah. But it's sexy and hot, so ..." When Billy asked him what sort of skin we'd be seeing, Brunetti would only say "no comment," but he did say:
We’ve wrapped. It’s not a porn. We’ve wrapped and [are] waiting for the first cut.
So, there you have it. Anyone 17 or over will be getting into see this "non-porn"! And anyone who was hoping for some porn-like scenes may want to look for very different sort of film adaptation of the book ...
Here's Billy's interview with Brunetti ...
