In a [new] book called Famous Players: A Tale Of Movies, The Mob, (And Sex), former Variety editor Peter Bart claims he was on the film’s set and saw the two stars engaging in real sex.
But 75-year-old Sutherland totally rejects Bart’s claim, calling it ‘mendacious’.
In an email sent to the New York Daily News, he said the claim was: ‘Not true. None of it. Not the sex. Not him witnessing it.’
