THE COOLER star Maria Bello has been left devastated after learning that a freezing waterfall scene that she reluctantly filmed semi-nude in new movie A History of Violence has been cut.

The actress is upset that film fans will now have to wait until the film is released on DVD before they can see her in all her naked glory.

She says, "I can't believe it's not in the film because it was one of the hardest scenes I ever had to film because we shot it at the end of October.

"It was a skinny dipping scene in a waterfall in Toronto and we were freezing. By the end of the night I was crying, 'I can't go in there.'"
