‘Perks of Being a Wallflower’ Deleted Aboriton Clinic Scene
Last fall’s sleeper hit Perks of Being a Wallflower is coming out on Blu-Ray and DVD February 12, and deleted scenes from the flick are starting to be released. This one in particular focuses Charlie’s (Logan Lerman) sister Candice (Nina Dobrev) and the story line of her terminated pregnancy. The deleted scene shows Candice right after the procedure, and she ends up getting emotional while her young brother Charlie helps her through the process. Though its prominently featured in the book, it ended up being cut from the film entirely.
When Teen interviewed Nina at the Toronto International Film Festival in September last year, she told us about how the scene was left on the cutting room floor. Nina broke it down, saying, “We actually shot that, yeah. We shot the clinic scenes and a few scenes post clinic, but unfortunately the movie was rated R and it got a little too heavy so we had to take them out so the viewers who the movie is intended for could watch it.”
Watch the deleted scene for yourself above. Do you think they should have left it in the movie? Sound off in the comments.
