A “Fart Opera” Was Cut from “Barbie”

Greta Gerwig wrote and directed “Barbie”. . . but she didn’t get EVERYTHING she wanted.  For instance, Greta really wanted a FART JOKE in the movie.  She even filmed one.  But it didn’t make the cut.

She says, quote, “We had like a fart opera in the middle.  I thought it was really funny.  And that was not the consensus.”

Greta is apparently a big fan of flatulence, because she tried to get fart jokes into her last two movies, which were “Lady Bird” and “Little Women” . . . but both times they were removed “about two-thirds through the edit.”
