Something to make us all a bit uncomfortable



Tbdschneider072407_2 The New York Post’s Page Six reports that Maria Schneider still is scarred by her cinematic encounter with Marlon Brando in Last Tango in Paris. The culprit? An overzealous Brando brandishing that butter.

“That scene wasn’t in the original script. The truth is it was Marlon who came up with the idea ...,” a 55-year-old Schneider told London’s Daily Mail (she was 19 at the time). “I should have called my agent or had my lawyer come to the set because you can’t force someone to do some thing that isn’t in the script. ... I was crying real tears. I felt humiliated and, to be honest, I felt a little raped ... Thankfully, there was just one take.”

And to this day, she says, “I never use butter to cook anymore — only olive oil.”
