Breckin Meyer | Kiss | Ryan Philippe

Ryan Phillippe and Breckin Meyer's Deleted Kissing Scene From '54' Surfaces: VIDEO

Phillippe Meyer

In an interview with The Advocate back in 2010, Ryan Phillippe dished about a "secret" uncut version of the film 54 that included a kiss between him and Breckin Meyer. Well that secret kiss has now found it's way to the internet for our viewing pleasure. The quality may not be the best, but it's still totally worth watching. 

Check it out, AFTER THE JUMP...(skip to 1:40 for the kiss)

  1. What horrible picture quality. Doesn't lend itself to eroticism in that kiss.

  2. Whoever cut that from the film should be fired from life.

  3. LOL. It's like an intro to an old 70's porn: the picture quality, the bad acting, ok, maybe the acting is marginally better, but only barely.

  5. Well, the quality is bad; but it's nice to remember how pretty Ryan was in that (though he's still quite good looking).

  6. I actually thought Breckin was amazingly hot in that film, love that his character for a second just felt the feeling until internal homophobia apparently kicked in.

  7. I remember this site talking about the one-night-only director's cut of "54" at some festival--with another 1/2 hour of footage added, it became a completely different (and MUCH BETTER) movie, and the characters were infinitely richer and more complex. Still probably a longshot that that version will ever be released, but we can hope.

  8. I remember at the time this movie was made reading about the kiss but the film went through several edits so as not to be too "controversial" (because sanitizing a movie about Studio 54 was a great idea). The problem with removing it was that the kiss had repercussions for the characters but without it their later actions made no sense. Glad to finally see it after all these years.

  9. I'm sure in some hidden movie vault there is a better print than this...

  10. I am all for this scene being put back in IF it makes that movie tolerable. Somehow, I doubt it would by itself.

  11. I didn't see this movie, so I don't know what the fuss is about -- but the clip I just saw showed a "kiss" with one guy rebuffing the other. No eroticism, no passion. Really, some of you seem so hard up for male contact of any kind on film, you'll applaud a gay-kiss rejection. Am I reading it wrong?

    It's like all the stupid (deeply mediocre) feel-good stuff Andy posts here. We seem to be so desperate for homo-contact & recognition we'll just take anything that comes down the pike.

  12. That movie reminds me so much of that time. I did my stint as a go-go dancer. (mind you not erotic dancer) There was an energy in the big city disco, a lot of sex and beautiful boys. Above all it was the music. It was all a preview of what was to come.

  14. Very hot. Yea, Breckin looked great in those shorts..

  15. I fondly recall backroom sexual encounters in the balcony and stairways of Studio54, as was the custom in that era.

  16. Let's make this clear: it was Hollywood liberals who deleted this kiss. Liberals, not conservatives. Probably some homophobic gay guy.

  17. Ryan in "Little Boy Blue" has a body/ass that I never get tired of/on Showtime if you catch it ..and then his lips..he's past his prime screen time for pretty boy looks..

  18. Mark Christopher, the director, talked about how they took the finished film away from him and recut it and butchered his original vision. It might have had a chance with the original, but even a scant 15 (!) years ago they were too scared to include any explicitly gay element in the movie. I was at 54 in 77-79, and believe me, it was the gayest thing in town. Maybe someday they will rerelease a director's cut.

  19. The 'high-five' seemed wrong...did people do that back then? I wish they would Stop it's dumb.

  20. Ryan Phillipe is so brave. Too bad Hollywood was homophobic 15 years ago.

  21. Even though this scene was cut from the film, you can re-watch this awesome film. 54 will be re-aired on Showtime this month (October). Check your cable stations!

  22. Breckin Meyer looks like my older brother's best friend from when we were kids. He was about 17 when I fell in love with him. I was 12. I used to follow him around like a little puppy. He'd say, "Hey buddy, what's up?" Swoon. He's straight of course. Years after I came out I met up with him again in my hometown and he said, "Ya. I'm not surprised," and then we both laughed out loud.

  23. Hey, that story is my tip I sent in! cool! Hollywood always tries to turn Phillipe into the standard same-old but he has some real acting chops when given a chance.

  24. Why was deleted? Nobody in the production team knew what went on in 54? Yeah right. Deleting this scene took lot away from characters.

  25. Too bad that Miramax ruined the film by demanding "edits". The original version probably would do well today.
