Actress Kate Bosworth has revealed filming a rape scene with Alexander Skarsgard for new movie Straw Dogs was ‘incredibly violating and terrifying’.
Bosworth said that to make the scene more lifelike, she told her co-star not to hold back as he pretended to perform the violent sex assault for the cameras.
The said scene, which came early in the shoot, sees Skarsgard’s Charlie, an aggressive farmhand, raping Bosworth’s character Amy. “I told Alex not to worry about me, to just go for it,’ the Daily Mail quoted her as telling the BlackBook magazine.
“I said, ‘I need you to lose yourself in this moment’.
“And it was actually violent. He’s a huge guy. When he was ripping off my clothes in front of a room filled with men, even though I knew it was make-believe, it was still incredibly violating and terrifying.
“The panic you see flooding me in that rape scene is real,” she added.
