Watch this hilarious deleted scene from Phantom Thread

Daniel Day-Lewis and Lesley Manville have an epic food fight in this outtake from Paul Thomas Anderson’s drama.

Little White Lies

Paul Thomas Anderson’s lavish period drama Phantom Thread isn’t just one of the best films of last year – it’s also one of the funniest. To prove our point, ET has shared a deleted scene from the film ahead of its released on Blu-ray and DVD on 10 April.

The two-minute clip is an outtake from one of the film’s many breakfast scenes – only this time the early hours confrontation escalates to a full-blown food fight between Lesley Manville’s Cyril and Daniel Day-Lewis’ Reynolds Woodcock. If you’ve seen the film, you’ll be able to guess who comes out on top.

Although Day-Lewis apparently found the shoot to be a gruelling experience, it’s a joy to watch him blowing off steam here. Watch closely and you’ll even notice DDL breaking character for just a moment. Check out the clip below and read our review of Phantom Thread here.
