Yes, though you wouldn't know that from reading Facebook etc. TBH stuff like this is why I've stopped using Facebook and Twitter for anything more than checking on what gigs are happening and records are being released. I'm sick of the moronic inferno every time a sensitive subject is aired.

This article was important to me in understanding exactly what happened on set during the Last Tango shoot in relation to her interviews about the subject (as her opinions seemed to change over the years), and then the recent media/social media responses to it. ... ast-tango/

As I recall, she had a lot to say on the subject.

I can't even remember the movie well enough to discuss it.

I got nothing to say I ain't said before
