Supermodel 'proud' of performance in unsimulated oral scene that made co-star 'regret' being in controversial film

Supermodel 'proud' of performance in unsimulated oral scene that made co-star 'regret' being in controversial film

The actress doesn't have any regrets about her role in the controversial movie

Sometimes in life, we look at things differently than other people.

Just look at the cast of The Brown Bunny, who all have very conflicting opinions about the unsimulated sex scene, which ended up drastically overshadowing the actual film.

The 2003 flick is still a regular topic of conversation among the stars who appeared in it, proving just how much that small snippet impacted the reception of the Vincent Gallo movie.

Take a look at the trailer here:

It follows a professional motorcycle racer, Bud Clay (Gallo), as he journeys from New Hampshire to California in the hopes of returning to the track while being haunted by memories of his former lover, Daisy (Chloe Sevigny).

He meets several ladies along the way who provide some brief relief for his crippling loneliness, but his ex is constantly on his mind - and for good reason.

At one point in The Brown Bunny, Bud is sort of reunited with Daisy during a rendezvous at a hotel.

After arguing about past events, he ends up undressing her and she performs oral sex on him - but Gallo and Sevigny weren't acting at this point, as the sex scene was completely unsimulated.

This means that the act was genuinely performed, rather than portrayed with stellar acting skills and camera angles.

Sevigny starred as Daisy in the 2003 movie.

The pair's co-star, supermodel Cheryl Tiegs who appeared as Lily in the film, has previously voiced her displeasure about the intimate moment and having to 'watch someone else do it'.

She said: "I wish he [Gallo] hadn’t included that scene because it might have hurt the film, but I know he doesn’t care.

"I run into Vincent every once in a while, but it’s been a couple of years. I wish I could talk to him again."

But the actress and model who actually had to put on the A star performance has very different feelings about the scene.

Sevigny reckons the moment completely went over people's heads, and admitted she feared viewers 'would not understand it' before The Brown Bunny was even released.

She told the Associated Press shortly after it came out: "When you see the film, it makes more sense. It’s an art film. It should be playing in museums. It’s like an Andy Warhol movie."

Discussing the controversial choice to shoot the unsimulated sex scene with Playboy in 2011, the 49-year-old said she was 'proud' of her performance and didn't have any regrets.

The American Psycho star explained: "What’s happened with that is all very complicated. There are a lot of emotions.

"I’ll probably have to go to therapy at some point. But I love Vincent. The film is tragic and beautiful, and I’m proud of it and my performance. I’m sad that people think one way of the movie, but what can you do?

"I’ve done many explicit sex scenes, but I’m not that interested in doing any more. I’m more self-aware now and wouldn’t be able to be as free, so why even do it?"

Sevigny later admitted she thinks it was her way of 'reclaiming herself' after achieving celebrity status as well as 'wanting to push the envelope'.

Meanwhile, Gallo also revealed how he prepared for the scene.

“What I did was drink a lot of pineapple juice!” he said at a news conference during the 2003 Cannes Film Festival.

“Pineapple juice makes everything taste better, and I tried to stay as clean as I could."
