Leonardo DiCaprio Shuts Down 'The Revenant' Bear Rape Rumors

Leonardo DiCaprio is responding to those rumors that he was raped by a bear in a scene for his film The Revenant.

“I have no idea where these ridiculous things come from, and what you do when you hear stuff like that?” the 41-year-old actor told E! News. “It’s absurd. It’s absurd.”

He also confirmed that he ate raw bison liver while filming in the deserted area.

“It’s something that I won’t repeat, that’s for sure. We submerged ourselves in the elements for this film. We really wanted to create something incredibly authentic so these types of adventures lend themselves to taking chances like that,” Leonardo explained. “You want to be as authentic as you possibly can with every decision that you make and that resulting in me biting into something that was pretty disgusting and my real reaction is on film and up there onscreen.”

You can watch the scene that has been interpreted as a “bear rape” scene below…
