VIGGO MORTENSEN deserved a special Academy Award to recognize his naked fight scene in EASTERN PROMISES, according to CHRISTINA RICCI.
Ricci was blown away by the actor’s performance in the movie, and feels he deserved a special mention after losing out on the Best Actor Oscar to Daniel Day-Lewis.
She says, “This year there was a category missing, I am so glad that Daniel Day-Lewis won. I think he is amazing. But Viggo did some naked fighting. It’s insane. There’s blood and fighting and it goes on for five minutes.
“He deserves an award simply for the naked fighting.”
