Arrested Development star Portia De Rossi has reportedly revealed that she nixed a nude lesbian scene in a movie with puffy lipped superstar Angelina Jolie. The movie was the 1998 film Gia, and the film was based on the life of fashion model Gia Marie Carangi.

One scene in the film shows Jolie and actress Elizabeth Mitchell (who apparently took the role) completely nude while taking photos and doing a still talked about "lesbian scene" through a chain link fence.

There are other scenes as well that place the two actresses together in nude embraces.

Apparently, those scenes frightened De Rossi. Portia reportedly says she turned that down because she feared she'd have to `come out' as a lesbian.

The striking blonde beauty was reportedly intent of hiding her sex secret when the offer of a gay sex scene with Jolie, who has often come clean about her bisexuality, came along.

"I wouldn't even drive down Santa Monica Boulevard (gay capital of Los Angeles)... in fear that someone would look in the car window and think I was gay," Contact Music quoted her as telling gay magazine The Advocate.
