Cronenberg's Public Sex

Eccentric film-maker DAVID CRONENBERG shocked his cast and crew on the set of new movie A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE, by publicly performing sex scenes with his wife.

The director hoped his explicit displays of affection with his wife would help stars VIGGO MORTENSEN and MARIA BELLO, who play man and wife in the film, feel more comfortable during their sex scenes together.

But, instead, the Cronenbergs just left everyone on the set stunned.

THE LORD OF THE RINGS star Mortensen says, "There's a couple of fairly racy sex scenes in the movie... between Maria Bello and myself. David, trying to be helpful, as usual, thought it might be a good idea to call up his wife and have her come down to the set.

"The crew and Maria and I just sat and watched while he and his wife got into something comfortable - nothing - and they started to say, 'We want you to (do this).' Maria and I were both going, 'OK, we get it.'

"This is a testament to their relationship, they kept going and they kept going and then we broke for lunch and some time in the evening Maria and I got to have a crack at it.

"Instead of putting us at ease, we actually were kind of freaked out... Maybe some things ought to stay private."

Dr. Ilsa

As a famous psychoanalyst, author of "Misogyny and the Oedipus Complex in the Films of David Cronenberg," and David's mother, his alleged on-set behavior comes as no surprise to me. David has been a serial exhibitionist since infancy... as a child, our succession of nannies had to sew him into his clothes to prevent his lewd displays. No doubt his wife is an accomplished seamstress.
