Actress Maria Schneider was pressured into an explict sex scene by screen icon Marlon Brando for their Last Tango In Paris.Schneider says she was unaware she would be starring in one of film's most controversial sex scenes when she accepted the role in the 1972 movie, but was forced into it by Brando, who had written the scene into the movie. Schneider claims the steamy scene - where Brando performs a sex act on her character Jeanne - felt like "rape" and left her feeling humiliated.She says, "That scene wasn't in the original script. The truth is it was Marlon who came up with the idea."They told me about it before we had to film the scene and I was so angry. I should have called my agent or had my lawyer come to the set because he 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 (filmmaker Bernado) Bertolucci.
"After the scene, Marlon didn't console me or apologise. Thankfully there was only one take."
