She had not given her consent for the scene, it was not in the script: He and Brando had developed the idea that morning and purposefully not told her so as to capture an authentic reaction on camera. Three years later (since the interview) and one serious media uproar, he is back-peddling on that statement.
“I would like, for the last time, to clear up a ridiculous misunderstanding that continues to generate press reports about ‘Last Tango in Paris’ around the world.
In catfishing, famous names are approached on social media by attractive women or men using fake profiles.
They talk their victims into a taking part in raunchy video calls and then record the footage.
This weekend, a 2013 interview conducted with Last Tango in Paris director Bernardo Bertolucci resurfaced and was met with international outrage and disgust: In it, he admitted to planning a nonconsensual sexual attack on the film's 19-year-old star, Maria Schneider.
We learned through the SAA Fellowship that we were not hopelessly defective.
However, what we do know is that Schneider "felt raped," she did not give her consent to have butter shoved up her asshole, she was treated as an object — as she told the Daily Mail in 2007 — and nobody listened to her.
And, as far as I'm concerned (and funnily enough, as far as the World Heath Organization is concerned, too) any move that is directed "against a person’s sexuality using coercion," is assault — and not a "ridiculous misunderstanding."Anything to add?
The explicit footage was uploaded to a string of porn websites.
In the 10-minute clip the former Liverpool player is seen pleasuring himself while making a video call on Skype.
