Perez 'In Tears' During Sex Scene

WHITE MEN CAN'T JUMP star ROSIE PEREZ broke down in tears when she filmed the "exploitative" sex scene with SPIKE LEE in his acclaimed drama DO THE RIGHT THING.

The New York actress, 41, made her big screen debut playing Lee's character MOOKIE's girlfriend TINA in the 1989 film, and felt humiliated when ice cubes were rubbed all over her body.

In Lee's memoir THAT'S MY STORY AND I'M STICKING TO IT, Perez recalls, "I had just lost my virginity in college.

"I found (the scene) much more exploitative than what I had read (in the script). Eventually I burst into tears and I said, 'Don't keep filming.'

"It was irresponsible to put me in that position. He was the older person, the captain of the ship."
