I didn’t bonk Julie for real, says Don­ald

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

RED-FACED ac­tor Don­ald Suther­land has de­nied claims the sex scenes in cult movie Don’t Look Now are real, say­ing he couldn’t have got a BONER if he’d tried!

Suther­land, 76, fa­mously romped with ac­tress Julie Christie, 70, in the 1973 hor­ror.

The bunk-up was so be­liev­able crit­ics have long sus­pected Suther­land was slip­ping his co-star a gen­uine length.

But Suther­land – dad of 24 star Kiefer – says it would have been im­pos­si­ble for him to get a stiffy!

He scoffed: “We were in a lit­tle room – Julie, me, the cam­era­man Tony Rich­mond and di­rec­tor Nic Roeg – with wires go­ing un­der the door.

“You couldn’t get any­one else in the room. If you think some­one was hav­ing sex, for­get it.”

Last year, au­thor Peter Bart claimed in his book In­fa­mous Play­ers:atale of Movies, The Mob and Sex that he’d seen Suther­land ‘mov­ing in and out’ of Christie dur­ing film­ing.
