Marlon Brando, Maria Schneider in Bernardo Bertolucci's Last Tango in Paris Maria Schneider Pt. 3: Memoirs Of A French Whore, A Woman Like Eve Decades after Last Tango in Paris became a cultural phenomenon, Schneider continued to hold a grudge against Bertolucci — even though she once told the French newspaper Libération that Brando was the one dictating to the "submissive" director how Last Tango in Paris was to proceed. "Although we met in Tokyo 17 years ago, I ignored him," she told the Daily Mail. "Plus, he and Marlon made a fortune from the movie and I made about [$5,000]. And Bertolucci was a Communist, too!" Schneider added that Bertolucci was an "overrated" filmmaker and was "fat and sweaty and very manipulative, both of Marlon and myself" throughout the Last Tango in Paris shoot. And finally, she blamed Bertolucci for her reputation as a "sex symbol" not to be taken seriously »
