Celebs Slam Brando & Bertolucci After 'Last Tango in Paris' Revelation

People everywhere are shocked after Bernardo Bertolucci, the director of the 1972 movie Last Tango in Paris, revealed the butter rape scene involving Marlon Brando and Maria Schneider was filmed without her consent.

The director admits that he conspired with Marlon, 48 at the time, to shoot the scene without Maria, 19 at the time, knowing about it first.

Jessica Chastain, Anna Kendrick, and Chris Evans are some of the celebs who are disgusted by the revelation.

Chris has suggested that the two men should be in jail for their actions. Marlon passed away in 2004 and Maria died in 2011, but Bernardo is still alive.

UPDATE: Even more celebs speak out about the shocking revelation

    Disgusting POS.

    That is extremely hot that a rape scene in that movie was actually real. I definitely have to go back and watch that movie scene again and again knowing that she didn’t want that to happen and really didn’t consent to it.

    Yeah, totally hot….like you are a total loser.

  • HG

    That sounds horrific. Not only is some older man raping you, but you are being raped in front of 50 or so crew members! And then after all of that, your rape is committed to film forever?! So disgusting.

  • guest

    Anna Kendrick is right. Maria Schneider, the french actress, revealed the story in 2007. Unbelievable sick

  • Strats

    Wait so they actually have sex in the film? Disgusting either way, but were they just acting or was there actually intercourse?

  • Nostalgia

    Maria talked about it 2007:

    “I should have called my agent or had my lawyer come to the set because you can’t force someone to do something that isn’t in the script, but at the time, I didn’t know that. Marlon said to me: ‘Maria, don’t worry, it’s just a movie,’ but during the scene, even though what Marlon was doing wasn’t real, I was crying real tears. I felt humiliated and to be honest, I felt a little raped, both by Marlon and by Bertolucci. After the scene, Marlon didn’t console me or apologise. Thankfully, there was just one take.”

    She didn’t know about the butter scene:

    “But if Schneider’s acting felt realistic in the controversial scene in which Marlon Brando’s character rapes her 20-year-old character with the aid of a stick of butter, it’s because Schneider didn’t know what was happening at the time.

    Director Bernardo Bertolucci admitted in an interview at La Cinémathèque Française in Paris in 2013 that he and Brando came up with the idea for using butter as a lubricant for the rape scene that day — but chose not to tell Schneider about that element before shooting it.”

  • Strats

    Sounds like there wasn’t any intercourse, still very disturbing though. Obviously traumatized Maria. Thanks for the info.

  • celine

    yes this is not a new story. i think these actors who “slam” everything should have know this just like Anna Kendrick because they are in this industry. i bet they also don’t know Roman Polanski is also a rapist and soon they will “react” or “slam” him too. anyone who has an access to internet can easly learn this information if they type the movie because that’s how i found out. sorry if i made a grammer mistake. english is not my native language.

  • Baseliner

    why did the director have to bring it now?

  • amelia sousa

    yes j b you’re disgusting, shoud be ashamed of your behaviour. Fucking retarded ashole

  • Roscoe

    The snowflakes are almost 45 years too late for the outrage, but cry on if it makes you feel better. You might be surprised that it won’t change anything and is actually promoting a now obscure film.

  • Ariana-Kaelita

    What Brando did was bad, but why get mad now? This lady said this back in 2011 and I don’t recall all these celebs being in arms over it! They are just hypocrites!
    What about when Woody Allen raped his own daughter? Or when Roman Polanski raped a 13 year old girl in his home?

  • Ariana-Kaelita

    And Brando is dead.

    Woody Allen didn’t rape his daughter. Rather, Mia Farrow asserts that he did, though she wasn’t there. The daughter asserts that he did, though his visitation was only with a court ordered monitor. Of course Allen and the court ordered monitor assert it didn’t happen, and the doctor who examined her for evidence said it didn’t happen.

  • Quentin Matthews

    The DAUGHTER “asserts that he did” rape her and he NEVER had any “court ordered monitored” visits with his daughter at all – the judge banned him from all contact with her (he only had court ordered visits with his son Satchel, now known as Ronan). Learn the actual facts. And by the way, Allen’s own maid testified that she witnessed a separate instance of him sexually abusing the girl (even though Woody fired her for coming forward) AND several psychologists who interviewed the girl testified that her story was credible. You are making up lies to make it sound like Woody was innocent and the victim of conniving women. He was only not prosecuted because it was already a media circus and Woody was demanding the girl testify in open court and be interrogated by his pitbull lawyers, and it was decided the kid was already too traumatized. But the prosecutor said there was enough evidence to convict Woody and the judge said he believed Woody sexually assaulted the child and banned him from ever seeing her again. NO DOCTOR who examined Dylan (the daughter) ever said it didn’t happen – your story is a complete and total lie, Don.

    Well, Evan Rachel Wood didn’t have any outrage over working with Woody Allen – a guy who married his lover’s daughter, a girl he also helped raise…and who’s also been accused of molesting his own biological daughter.

  • HG

    So gross and a total douche move by Brando

  • shtf

    Some people don’t even read the whole story.
    She wasn’t raped in reality. What she said is that they filmed a rape scene that was against her consent, wasn’t in the script even.
    And that traumatized her. It is sick nevertheless.
    And what is shocking is that 1) people only find it outrageous when Bertoluci spoke about it and not when the actress did and 2) People still excuse Woody Allen and Roman Polanksi -> actual rapists.

  • Blake

    chris said it right, we will never look at brando the same way

  • norah mackenzie

    why discuss evan – lots of other actors and actresses also worked with woody allen

  • norah mackenzie

    why discuss woody allen at all? this was a movie that was done without the consent of the actress

  • Darren William Kyle

    If the sex was unsimulated than it isn’t rape, it’s sexual assault. Still should be punishable by law though.

  • Kittywilderness

    If you read the interview tho, she actually wasn’t raped. There was no intercourse. It was simulated. They didn;t tell her about the butter or how they were going to do the scene so yes, she was sexually assaulted, which is disgusting and inexcusable but she wasn;t actually raped on camera. People seem to be so blinded with outrage that they haven;t actually read beyond the headline and all jumped on the bandwagon

  • Kittywilderness

    No. There was no actual sex took place. It was simulated. If you find the full interview that is made clear. Schneider was unaware of what would happen in the scene and the butter, it would be sexual assault, but there was no sex, no intercourse.

  • Kittywilderness

  • Kittywilderness

    Go find the interview transcript, she wasn’t actually raped on camera. There was certainly sexual assault involved. But any sex was simulated, Schneider has this herself. It’s still wrong that even that happened but there needs to be clarification.

  • Jay Last

    Oh well in that case there’s no reason to be upset.

    You’re an idiot.

  • Kittywilderness

    I didn’t say there was no reason to be upset, there’s every reason, a woman was exploited by two men older than her. I’ve made it very clear I believe that she was sexually assaulted, and that I think that’s disgusting and inexcusable. My point was that people seem to be under the impression non-consensual penetrative sex took place on camera by Brando and that is in fact not what happened. It doesn’t make what happened right, or even excusable, but it’s also really easy for the facts and for what was said by the people involved to get muddied via lazy reporting and social media band wagon jumping.

  • HG

    That is true. I was a little confused because at first I thought there was penetration. Either way, such a horrible thing to do to a young girl. They definitely ruined her life. :(

  • Von

    Because she now another TV show, that is sexually exploitive, has rape scene, orgies and she does does full frontal nude scenes.

  • Von

    It wasn’t a movie it was one scene and if you watched the movie, almost every scene she’s naked and having sex.

  • Von

    They’re all so pathetic. Liberalism is mental Illness, no wonder the most mentally unstable profession acting/musicians are all liberals.
    Cry me a river, after Bill Cosby’s 50th drug and rape you’d think people would’ve spoke out about him before he became old man in the twilight years of his career. Same people who voted to put Bill Clinton back in White House.

    Same people who would jump to work with Polanski or Allen. Same people who ignore all the sexual harrsement and exploitation that’s going on in the business today because it might hurt their careers

    But sure be outraged about it now that the actress is dead as if she hadn’t spoken about it for the last decade with all of them ignoring her.
    But now it’s about virtue signalling, because nothing is more important than empty gestures of #I care and #hashtag social justice activism.

  • dancer

    Because she is one of the celebs whose tweets were quoted for this article and she’s worked with Woody Allen, another director who has had very serious accusations of abuse levied against him. The info. about Allen was public knowledge for many years prior to her working with him and she chose to work with him anyway.

  • Jay Last

    That’s exactly what you’re trying to do: make what happened right, or even excusable. WTF does penetration or not have to do with it? Absolutely nothing. Educate yourself before preaching to others what they should and shouldn’t think you moron.

  • http://electronictiger.net Fairportfan

    When this was in the press, back when she was talking about it in 2011, some jerk was going “Well, she cashed the checks, didn’t she?”

    To which i replied “Returning the check wouldn’t magically unrape her.”

  • Janfrans Zuidema

    There wasn’t any penetration involved in the making of Last Tango. She wasn’t raped; her character was. And her character killed Marlon Brando’s character. Should we charge her with murder?

    Seriously people, stop being so incredibly weird.

  • Janfrans Zuidema

    In another scene he invites Maria Schneider’s character to stick her finger up his ass.

    I have never looked at Marlon Brando in the same way ever since…

    44 years and counting.

  • Blake

    please tell me this is scripted…

  • Libs r losers

    WOW!! JUST WOW!!!!

    Note to these sanctimonious Hollywood women:

    Most of you have turned a blind eye to child rapist Roman Polanski for decades.

    WAKE UP!!!

  • norah mackenzie

    i never watched the movie – never liked brando esp the later movies he made – he always creeped me out
