Exclusive to FANDOM, this deleted scene from Charlize Theron action thriller Atomic Blonde sees her character Lorraine Broughton drop her guard while in bed with Sofia Boutella’s Delphine.

The pair lie close together, with Delphine nestled on Lorraine’s chest as Lorraine puffs on a cigarette. As Lorraine strokes Delphine’s hair, Delphine asks: “Have you ever been in love?”

Lorraine doesn’t answer. There’s a silence, which Delphine fills. “I think that love is the only thing worth living for, or dying for,” she says.

Gazing off into the middle distance, Lorraine responds: “I’m not afraid of love.”

Delphine raises her head and looks Lorraine in the eye. “Then what are you afraid of?” she asks.

“Losing it,” comes the reply, Lorraine’s eyes soft, half-closed.

“When you tell the truth you look different. Your eyes change,” observes Delphine.

Lorraine continues to stroke Delphine’s hair. She pauses and looks at her face intently.

“Thanks for the warning,” she says before looking away to take another drag on her cigarette.

Delphine leans in and asks: “What do you mean?”

“I mean I’d better not do that again,” says Lorraine still looking away.

“Why?” asks Delphine.

Lorraine looks at her again, and seems reluctant to answer. She sighs, as Delphine nestles her head into her chin. Lorraine looks up, still playing with Delphine’s hair.

“Because it’s going to get me killed one day,” she says in a half whisper.

Sophia Boutella as Delphine.
