VENICE, Italy — Bijou Phillips, the daughter of the late rock legend John Phillips, said she was scared when the sex scenes in her controversial movie Bully provoked more comment than its real-life story of senseless murder, the execution-style killing of a neighborhood bully by a group of teenagers.
