Romeo and Juliet director, Carlo Carlei, said that the scene in question has been revised. A lovemaking scene with nudity was planned before between married Romeo and Juliet. He said that, the script was written by Oscar-winning screenwriter Julian Fellowes keeping in mind a 20-year-old actress. Now all the nudity and lovemaking scene have been excised from the script and it will contain only romantic scenes that are age appropriate for 14 years old actress Hailee Steinfeld.

The question of nudity was arised after after the publication of the script in some newspaper which says as following

“They (Romeo and Juliet) start undressing each other – slowly, gently and carefully until they are naked. They are eternal figures in a Raphael painting. Romeo then carries her to bed, kissing her again and again as they explore uncharted territory. Then they make love, transported into each other’s soul.”
