NO SUCH THING AS ‘BEAR RAPE SCENE’ FOR OSCAR-BOUND WINNER LEONARDO DICAPRIO IN ‘THE REVENANT’
The Revenant – Leonardo DiCaprio

One of the most spiteful reports making rounds in pre-Oscar Tinseltown is Leonardo DiCaprio allegedly being sexually assaulted by not once but twice by a grizzly bear in his latest film, The Revenant.

The schoolyard gossip began to circulate thanks to a tasteless article from Drudge Report which was emblazoned with “DICAPRIO RAPED BY BEAR IN FOX MOVIE” in bold capital letters and this pronouncement:

“The bear flips Leo over and thrusts and thrusts during the explicit mauling,” it stated, going as far as to say that the scene “caused maximum controversy” and that, “He is raped — twice!”

20th Century Fox, who is distributing “The Revenant,” immediately quashed the shock tactics created by the scathing write-up via an official statement to the media.

“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,” a representative was quoted in Entertainment Weekly.

However, the actor’s connection with the aforementioned grizzled mammal though has been nothing but forceful, DiCaprio’s fur trapper Hugh Glass character is left lifeless by his colleagues in a desolate part of a South Dakota wilderness. This quandary is the premise of the narrative by Oscar-winning Mexican director Alejandro González Iñárritu which is lifted from a novel of the same name. The revenge tale was also inspired by the true story of the said Glass, who was a pioneering Wyoming outdoorsman. The gritty epic western period film also stars Tom Hardy as a felon on the run. Watch the video as DiCaprio also gets to be buried alive in the film.

One true adversary though has constantly hounded the talented DiCaprio, an Oscar win despite his countless nominations from the award-giving body. Indiewire, nevertheless has predicted DiCaprio as the no. 1 to most likely grab the “Best Actor” statue this coming Feb. 28, 2016. Will the pieces finally fall for the actor or will it be close, but no cigar again?
