Hollywood actress Kate Bosworth has spoken up about the rape scene that she had to perform in for the movie Straw Dogs. Kate’s character in the movie is raped by Alexander Skarsgard’s character and she revealed that the fear the viewers see on her face is almost for real.
Bosworth explained, "I told Alex not to worry about me, to just go for it. 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."
Kate Bosworth and Alexander Skarsgard went on to date each other in real life following their meeting on the set of Straw Dogs, however they are no longer dating. Straw Dogs is currently available to see in the US and is released in the UK on November 4.
