The Strange Case Of Michelle Johnson...

As she was 16 years old, Michelle Johnson was able to star in "Blame It On Rio" with Michael Caine, a movie in which, at one point she had to strip off her top and be naked from the waist up.

However, when she went to see her own film, she was refused entry. Why? As the film featured her taking her top off and being naked from the waist up, the film classification prohibited her from seeing it at the age of 16.

She pointed out that there was nothing in the film that she didn't see in her own bathroom mirror every morning.

Re: ABSURDITY OF AGE LIMITS
I really never understood age limits or prohibitions on certain "moral" issues either. For cohesive civilization I understand the need for laws such as no stealing, no murder, etc. As for booze consumption, and other age issues a far better method would be to allow no age, but insist on education and an understanding of the responsibility with using or engaging in such activities, etc.
