Chris Evans Says Marlon Brando Should Have Been Jailed for 'Last Tango in Paris' Rape Scene

Chris Evans Says Marlon Brando Should Have Been Jailed for 'Last Tango in Paris' Rape Scene

Chris Evans is disgusted and enraged by the revelation that the late actress Maria Schneider was raped on camera without consent for a scene in the 1972 movie Last Tango in Paris.

The movie’s director, Bernardo Bertolucci, says that he and actor Marlon Brando conspired to shoot the scene and get Maria‘s “reaction as a girl, not as an actress.”

“Wow. I will never look at this film, Bertolucci or Brando the same way again. This is beyond disgusting. I feel rage,” Chris tweeted after reading the story.

Anna Kendrick also got involved in the conversation and she said she’s been telling people about this for years, but no one seemed to care before.

    I agree with him. This kind of thing should never be allowed to happen on a film set.

  • Darija

    Poor woman.. she should have sued them.

    I’ll never watch a Brando/Bertolucci movie again.

  • Lee

    That Betolucci always makes perverted movies anyway, he’s a degenerate.

  • celine

    I don’t know how very few people knew about this. when i got curious about the movie to watch, this information was the first thing i found on the internet. the actress has spoken about this before and if i am not mistaken, it was also mentioned on wikipedia too. it suprises me to see that now, it is being written as a new story. as soon as i read it, i stopped liking Brando and never watched a Bertolucci movie. also sorry if i made any grammer mistakes, english is not my native language.

    Chris Evans tries to be relevant, OK, we got it…. How and why is this relevant in 2016?

  • xyz

    Oh, ure such a pussy…. How many Bertolucci movies have u seen in ur crappy life? Ever bothered to check out his filmography?

  • rocknmovie

    Watch The Comformist or 1900… He is a great director.

  • Kittywilderness

    Two of my favourite films are Bertolucci (Not Last Tango in Paris btw). What he and Brando subjected her to is disgusting and deplorable and I’m not remotely condoning it in any way., it’s repulsive. But when it comes to Stealing Beauty and The Dreamers, two films I adore, two films that had a profound effect on me, I’m not going to let the directors actions ruin something I adore, I’m separating the art from the person. I won’t watch Last Tango in Paris again tho

  • sassafrass

    She wasn’t raped, it was a rape scene and Brando and Bertolucci didn’t tell her exactly what would happen so they would get an honest reaction out of her. Not exactly the same thing.

  • sassafrass

    That’s okay, there’s only the one.

  • Nick Lombardo

    But…..he is relevant.

  • Visitor

    Sadly, in Hollywood it happens all the time–and the fashion industry, too. Men control things, and they prefer young naive girls they can intimidate and have power over.

    It happened to Thandie Newton, and plenty more actresses when they were up-and-coming,

  • Elizabeth Miller

    What happened to Thandie Newton?! And yes even with how “liberal” and left wing Hollywood is they are still very misogynistic and racist. Remember how many of them defended Roman Polanski and Woody Allen.

  • Elizabeth Miller

    He’d a rapist. No thanks.

  • Elizabeth Miller

    Sorry, but it no that is sexual assault. Because she did not consent.

  • Elizabeth Miller

    “How and why is this relevant in 2016?”

    Because Bertolucci just admitted it.

  • Quentin Matthews

    Ugh. A woman being sexually touched WITHOUT HER CONSENT IS SEXUAL ASSAULT. Always. It doesn’t make it better that they filmed it. She didn’t give consent for that to happen to her. She was a 19 year old teenager with no experience, Brando was a 48 year old man with enormous power. He and Bertolucci conspired to sexually assault her to make it seem “real”. Don’t be disgusting.

    I agree that Brando and Bertolucci are pieces of garbage, but where’s the outrage from Anna Kendrick and Jessica Chastain (who also tweeted about this) on Woody Allen and Casey Affleck? They’ve both been in movies with Affleck and hobnobbed with Allen at his movie premieres. Just a tad hypocritical.

    They aren’t the only entertainers you need to be boycotting due to assault, sexual or otherwise.

    Chris Evans has been firing a shit string of texts and e-mails and tweets over important issues that are being overlooked.

    He really needs to stop acting like Captain America and become Captain America…SAVE US CHRIS EVANS!

  • Ivan Jimenez

    WTF are you on crack brah?

    They are trying to bring awareness to this important social issue that haunted the actress until she died! And this continues even today behind the scenes. My nephews, who works in the entertainment industry as a producer, always say that fucked up shit goes on behind the camera.

    After years and years she still will not name names. Whose fault is that?

    Ugh she was NOT RAPED. They did an improvised rape scene and was bad that she didn’t get to prepare for it. She could have said no, but didn’t and decided to do the scene anyway. Shut up with your fake outage. It’s insulting to people who really have been raped.

    Back in the day, when Playboy mag had some gravitas, the film was featured in a short write up along with some the requisite photos of Ms Schneider. The rape scene was noted with the narrative that she knew about it, but was not expecting it at the time and was surprised when the scene suddenly unfolded on the set.

    The ethics here are debatable, but she did know that it would be depicted and she would participate as the “victim” (if that is the correct term); it was the management and timing of the shoot that gave it some additional ambience that seems to be the issue here.

    Who can say? Who was her agent? Did she sign an agreement beforehand? These narratives, 30-40 years after the fact, while not irrelevant, are not going to get to the facts of the matter.

    Separately, both made more than one film…

  • lowercrimenow

    But when an older president does it with a cigar to a 19 year old intern in her backside these same liberals think he is wonderful.

  • lowercrimenow

    It was simulated. Brando didn’t actually do anything to her.

  • lowercrimenow

    Liberals will also be furious that butter rather than a healthier margarine or natural spread was used.

  • lowercrimenow

    Quentin..Brando didn’t touch her. It was all simulated.

  • Dagger
