Censored! Denise Richards may have no regrets at all of starring in the 1998 erotic thriller Wild Things, but that doesn’t mean she will be letting her children see it anytime soon.
“I definitely did not give them a copy,” the 48-year-old recently told Yahoo Lifestyle Australia. “I told them, ‘I don’t want you guys watching this,’ because one of my daughters brought it up to me and I was shocked.”
As her kids get older, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star admits that their pals are coming across scandalous footage of the film, including a famous love scene with her costar, Neve Campbell.
“A couple of friends had told her about it and I just said to her, ‘I would appreciate if you didn’t watch it,’” Denise recalled. “It’s not age-appropriate.”
But while the actress is against her three daughters watching the movie, she is still completely fine with the fact she took part in the film.
“It was a movie I did, it was a script I loved, it’s me being creative,” Denise recalled of her conversation with Eloise and Lola. “I worked with amazing actors and one day if you do see it, you may not agree with my decision but that’s what mum decided to do.’” Although, she understands how strange her kids may feel.
“It’s weird for them, to see their mum in something that’s sexy or different,” she told the outlet. “I think it would be very rude for me if it were my parents.”
Denise is quite protective of her kids too — she once admitted installing surveillance cameras to keep her eldest daughter from sneaking out.
“Sami’s getting into high school and new school, new boys,” Denise explained on an episode of Real Housewives. “That’s when kids usually start sneaking out. I started sneaking out when I was 15 years old, so I know my kid’s going to sneak out. So I’m putting cameras up so I can catch her.” She added, “We’ll be able to see people sneak out or sneak in.”
Hey, a parent’s gotta do what a parent’s gotta do.
