Amor, Estranho, Amor controversy
The movie Amor, Estranho, Amor was controversial due to Xuxa's role in a sex scene where she is naked on top of a young boy. Xuxa, until 1986, defended her participation in the movie, saying that it was essential to her career. However in 1986, after being a national hit with "xou da Xuxa", CIC Video released the movie to VHS. Xuxa changed her stance on the film, not wanting her "baixinhos" (as Xuxa called her children audience) and their parents to see her seducing a 12-year-old boy. She went to court claiming the contract has no mention of video release. According to Xuxa, Pelé made her agree to do the movie. Marlene Mattos, who was Xuxa's manager for many years, bought all rights for Xuxa's dramatic movie with her nude scene, and they are not available on video or DVD in Latin America.
