The studio behind the new Leonardo DiCaprio film The Revenant has denied claims he is ‘raped by a bear’ in one of the movie’s early scenes.
It had been reported that DiCaprio’s character Hugh Glass is viciously attacked by the animal, who flips him over on to his back and proceeds to molest him.
‘He is raped – twice!’ claims Drudge Report.
The site also adds that the ‘bear flips Leo over and thrusts and thrusts during the explicit mauling.’
Two other individuals who have seen the film tell DailyMail.com that while the bear attacks DiCaprio’s character there is indeed some thrusting.
But while it is an intense scene, they both say there does not appear to any incident of rape.
Fox, the studio behind the film, backed that up, saying in a statement; ‘As anyone who has seen the movie can attest, the bear in the film is a female who attacks Hugh Glass because she feels he might be threatening her cubs.
‘There is clearly no rape scene with a bear.’
DiCaprio spoke about the scene earlier this year in an interview with Yahoo Movies.
