London, Dec 3 : American actor Sean Penn is said to have urged writers to put in more raunchy scenes in his new gay biopic 'Milk'.
Actor James Franco, who also had a major role in the biopic about California's first openly gay elected official, revealed that he was surprised to find more same-sex sex scenes in the script after Sean complained.
"In the original script I read, there was only one real kissing scene," the Sun quoted him as saying.
"A month after the director Gus Van Sant asked me to do it, they sent me another script and on page five there was a full-on love scene.
"And I was like, 'Gus, what the heck?' He said, 'Well, it was Sean's idea'," he added.
The movie 'Milk' will be released worldwide on January 16.
