Longoria's lesbian love scenes get cut (+video)

Spanish film distributors have cut lesbian love scenes with Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria from a movie, prompting a gay film festival to cancel its screening in protest.

The film Without Men tells the story of a small village whose women are left to amuse themselves when their menfolk go off to war.

It also stars actor Christian Slater.

"We received a statement from the distributor in Spain saying that when the film premieres it will have the lesbian scenes removed," Xavier Daniel, director of the Barcelona International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, said.

"We are very angry that a distributor can modify the content of a film," he added.

"The audience will not understand the film, because all the lesbian scenes are cut out," Daniel said. "It is unbelievable in the year 2011."
