Mamma Mia! star Stellan Skarsgard's son was once thrown out of a Hollywood party for using a taboo word as a term of endearment while welcoming a fellow guest.

The Thor star is refusing to name the child that uttered the expletive, but admits he had no problem with his young son's foul mouth.

The father-of-eight was asked about the use of the 'C' word at the beginning of his new film Nymphomaniac in an interview with WENN and revealed, "One of my sons was at a party in Los Angeles and he said (to) someone in a very endearing European way...

January 31st, 2014 3:20am EST
Censors in Romania have reversed their decision to ban the second installment of Lars Von Trier's controversial new movie Nymphomaniac amid a drama which has cost the president of the nation's film rating commission his job.

The unnamed executive lost his title after labelling the Danish filmmaker's two-part project pornographic and agreeing that the movie was not fit for cinemagoers.

The film's Romanian distributors at Independenta Film appealed the decision and learned that the movie is now back on the release schedule for 7 February (14) as planned, with an 18-plus rating.
