One of the best moments in Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Phantom Thread”finds Lesley Manville’s Cyril snapping back at her brother, Reynolds (Daniel Day-Lewis), and warning him not to pick a fight with her. Reynolds wisely listens to her sister in the theatrical cut, but it turns out that wasn’t always the case.
Entertainment Tonight has debuted an exclusive deleted scene from “Phantom Thread,” and it shows Reynolds not just picking a fight with Cyril but engaging in a food fight, no less. Of course getting food and tea thrown at her is not exactly something Cyril respects.
“I hate you! How dare you do this to me! It’s my favorite dress,” Cyril shrieks, to which Reynolds responds, “Good. I’d have hate to have done that to your second favorite one. It’d be a waste of tea.”
“Phantom Thread” is now available on digital and hits Blu-ray and DVD on April 10. Watch the deleted scene below.
