Love Scenes Actors Regret Filming

Given that American Pie is all about teenagers humiliating themselves while trying to satisfy their hormonal urges, you could understand if now-grown Jason Biggs was ready to disavow the whole thing. But Biggs, who played pie lover Jim Levenstein, said that he doesn’t regret the movie as a whole … just one scene.

In the scene in question, Jim sets up a webcam to record exchange student Nadia while she’s alone in his room. She changes into her underwear and sets about satisfying some of those aforementioned urges. Jim and his friends watch and then Jim joins her. Cue the aforementioned humiliation.

Embarrassing as the second part of the scene probably was for Biggs, it’s the secret filming part that he says he now finds disturbing. “It wouldn’t get made now and it couldn’t get made now. It would be unacceptable … The conversation [around teenagers and sex] now is totally different now to what it was 20-plus years ago, so the art that’s made surrounding it needs to be totally different,” Biggs acknowledged in an interview with Buzzfeed News.

Nadia actress Shannon Elizabeth agrees. She told Page Six that she’s grateful to be remembered for the role, and she’s “honored” to be considered a sex symbol among teens at the time. But she adds, “If this had come out after the #MeToo movement, there would definitely be a problem. I think that it would have gone down differently.”
