Kiefer Sutherland: 'Dad Spoiled Julie Christie Sex Scene'

Kiefer Sutherland Julie Christie

Actor Kiefer Sutherland was left squirming as a teenager when he watched Julie Christie's sex scene in Don't Look Now because he could not stand seeing the screen siren frolicking with his father.

Donald Sutherland starred alongside the British actress in the creepy 1973 thriller, and their saucy scene was so graphic it sparked controversy when the film was released.

24 star Sutherland admits he was keen to view the explicit footage when he was a teenager, but seeing his father in the scene ruined the excitement.

Otter Pup

Julie Christie with newborn North American river otter pup - Tilly, the North American river otter at the Oregon Zoo, gave birth to her second pup at Oregon Zoo (Nov 8) The new arrival weighed just shy of 5 ounces at birth and has nearly tripled that thanks to mom's naturally high-fat milk. Julie Christie, the zoo's senior North America keeper said: "We're pretty sure this pup's a male. But Tilly is very protective, so we can't be positive until our vets conduct a more thorough exam." Tilly and her pup are currently in a private maternity den, and it will be another month or two before visitors can see them in their Cascade Stream and Pond habitat. Young river otters usually open their eyes after three to six weeks, and begin walking at about five weeks. Julie Christie says: "Young river otters are very dependent on their moms, and Tilly has been very nurturing. "She did a great job with her first pup, Mo, earlier this year. She raised him up from this tiny, helpless creature into the sleek, agile, full-grown otter he is today. We're confident Tilly will be a great mom to her new pup as well." Keepers have yet to decide on a name for the new pup, though it is likely he will be named after a local river or waterway. Older sibling Mo is short for Molalla, after the Molalla River, whilst mum Tilly is named after the Tillamook River - where she was found orphaned near Johnson Creek in 2009. at just four months old. North American river otters typically give birth from late winter to spring, but Tilly seems to be on her own schedule, keepers say. The breeding season for river otters is December through April, and actual gestation only lasts a couple of months. Unlike their European cousins however, North American river otters usually delay implantation so that the time between conception and birth can stretch to as much as a year. That hasn't been the case with Tilly. Christie said it is also unusual -- though not unheard of -- for an otter to give birth to a single pup, as Tilly has now done twice.

Robert Redford Was Determined To Track Down Julie Christie For New Film

Robert Redford Julie Christie

Robert Redford spent two months trying to convince British movie icon Julie Christie to sign up for a role in his new political thriller The Company You Keep after tracking her down to a remote part of Spain.

The veteran actor/director was determined to land Christie as a member the anti-Vietnam War activist group the Weather Underground after recalling her earlier days as a rebellious and outspoken "radical", but he had no idea how difficult it would be to find the semi-retired actress and get her to agree to tackle the job.

He tells Wenn, "I saw her (in the role) because I knew her when she was younger. We were both roughly the same age and had film exposure around the same time. I realised that she was radical then and assumed she might stay that way; that would be something to draw on.

'The Company You Keep' Has Hallmarks Of An Oscar Contender (Trailer & Pictures)

Robert Redford Shia LaBeouf Stanley Tucci Julie Christie Susan Sarandon Terrence Howard Anna Kendrick Nick Nolte

Robert Redford appears to be back on track. Some five years after his disappointing drama 'Lions For Lambs', the Oscar winning director has returned to similar territory with 'The Company You Keep,' a slick looking drama starring an all-star cast. And when we say all-star cast, we really do mean it.

Stanley Tucci as Ray Fuller & Shia LaBeuouf as Ben Shepard In The Company You Keep

Redford stars and directs in the story of Jim Grant, a public interest lawyer and single father living in New York. Shia LaBeouf plays a scruffy intrepid journalist who exposes Grant as a man wanted for a murder he allegedly committed in his days as an anti-war radical. When another member of the Weather Underground - played by Susan Sarandon - is arrested, LaBeouf's Ben Shepard smells an opportunity to make a name for himself with a national story. The superb Stanley Tucci plays his prickly finger-pointing editor (is it us, or was he born to play a prickly finger-pointing editor?) while the excellent Anna Kendrick plays a vulnerable FBI agent. Elsewhere, there's a gruff looking Nick Nolte, the old-hand Richard Jenkins and legendary western actor Sam Elliott. Oh, and there's Brendan Gleeson. And Terrence Howard. And Julie Christie.

Donald Sutherland Julie Christie

A former movie boss has confirmed one of the most famous Hollywood rumours - he claims Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie really did have sex in classic thriller Don'T Look Now.

Gossips have speculated for years that the pair's explicit love scene in the 1973 film actually showed unsimulated sex, and now former Variety editor Peter Bart has written about his time onset in his new book, Infamous Players: A Tale of Movies, the Mob, (and Sex).

He was given access to the shoot in his role as a Paramount Pictures executive and claims to have seen Sutherland and Christie filming the thriller's bedroom scene - and he's adamant they weren't acting.

Bart writes in the excerpt obtained by the Hollywood Reporter, "It was clear to me they were no longer simply acting: they were f**king on camera."
