LEONARDO DiCaprio’s new film features a sensual scene of loving, playful intercourse with a brown bear.
The Revenant tells the story of a man surviving in the wilderness who finds himself drawn to a divorced, middle-aged local bear with two cubs.
DiCaprio said: “I want to quash rumours that the sex is in any way non-consensual. I invite the bear back to my cabin, we drink a little moonshine and bond over a mutual sense of longing.
“Soon our instincts take over and the bear begins to rub my lower back with its huge paw. Then I kiss it and nibble its pointed ear.
“It’s super erotic but feels very natural, sort of like Don’t Look Now if Julie Christie was covered in fur and weighed over half a ton.
“However it is not explicit – the camera actually cuts away, then you see us in the morning with the bear snoring face up on my now-broken bed and me in my boxers bringing it a breakfast tray.”
Asked to confirm whether there was nudity, DiCaprio replied: “Bears are alway naked you fucking idiot.”
