William H. Macy: Even bad sex is good
William H. Macy

William H. Macy doesn't understand why movie boards are so scared of love making when "even the bad sex he's had was pretty good".

The actor stars as Father Brendan in The Sessions, about a man in an iron lung who uses a sex surrogate to lose his virginity.

The subject matter has caused a lot of debate which pleases William, as he is angry about the way intimacy is shown on the big screen.

"I don't know about Great Britain but I think America has got it pretty well b*****ksed up. And I think our films have a lot to do with our views about sexuality and I think we're ill-served by our ratings board, who need to get into therapy, in my opinion," he fumed to British newspaper The Guardian.

"We're so accepting of violence – ugly, ugly, ugly violence and we let our children watch it. I don't let my kids watch it. And yet we are allergic to sex. And I don't know much but I know this: violence is bad and sex is good. Even the bad sex I've had was pretty good."

The 62-year-old star is quick to point out that he doesn't agree with censorship of any kind. Rather, he wants films to be entirely honest no matter what story they are telling.

William has two daughters with his wife Felicity Huffman and believes it's important for anything young people watch to give a true-to-life portrayal of the big issues.

"If we're going to have violence let's tell the truth about it. It makes me disgusted when I see the hero get the c**p kicked out of him and he's making love in the next scene. If you're going to kick the c**p out of your hero then have him stay beat up. Tell the truth about it," he insisted.
