Hugh Grant said 'Wonka' director Paul King sent him an image of a naked Oompa Loompa.
He told People that he was sent a mock-up of his character that happened to be "stark naked."
"If it ever leaks out, a generation of children will be scarred," the director Paul King said.
"Paul, quite early on in the editing process, sent me a mock-up of the Oompa Loompa stark naked," Grant said.
He said that the early rendering of the character without clothes was sent to him "to amuse him," but he added that his children had glimpsed the image and were "shocked" by it.
"My little children were a little alarmed at that," he said.
King, who also spoke to the outlet, said that the visual effects team for the movie were still figuring out "the color of the skin and the way the hair works and on all the kind of details of it," and at that point the Oompa Loompa "had no clothes."
"It was one of the most disturbing things I've ever seen in my life," the director, who previously worked with Grant on "Paddington 2," said. "If it ever leaks out, a generation of children will be scarred."
King added that the figure "was very delicately pixelated" and "there was nothing untoward."
"It's just something once you've seen, you can't unsee it," he added.
"It was like a crown of thorns, very uncomfortable," Grant said of his experience, the Metro reported.
He said that he had multiple cameras directly on him in order for the movie's animators to properly render his character's final appearance, adding that he wasn't sure whether he was supposed to act with his body or just his face.
"I made a big fuss about it," he said. "I couldn't have hated the whole thing more."
