Matt Drudge is wrong, there is no 'rape' scene with Leonardo DiCaprio and a bear in his new movie

Earlier today, conservative pundit Matt Drudge reported on his site The Drudge Report that Leonardo DiCaprio’s upcoming film, “The Revenant,” features a graphic scene in which DiCaprio is raped by a wild bear.

Business Insider has asked the distributor, Fox, for comment.
