Natasha Lyonne reveals Marlon Brando held her breast in surreal 'Scary Movie 2' cameo
Natasha Lyonne has worked with some of Hollywood's top names from her first professional appearance in Pee Wee's Playhouse when she was six years old in the 1980s. And her acting skills in 'Scary Movie' was top-notch and people loved it for years. Speaking of it, Lyonne revealed a massive scene in that movie that never made it to the final movie. In the horror-comedy spoof 'Scary Movie 2', veteran actor Marlon Brando had a cameo where he held the breast of a young actress Lyonne and sadly, it was cut out!
Lyonne said Marlon Brando had to eventually stepped out of the film due to sickness in an interview she did in Entertainment Weekly's ‘Role Call,' but not before filming a scene with her. He videotaped a scene with her and she kept a video clip of that wonderful encounter. The scenario in issue occurred near the beginning of the sequel, and it was a parody of The Exorcist in ‘Scary Movie 2.’ Lyonne portrayed a possessed young girl akin to Linda Blair, with two priests (James Woods and Andy Richter) attempting to expel the demon. James Woods later played the role of Brando in the movie.

"I have a VHS copy of the dailies," she explained, "that I got because Marlon Brando's final role — sadly for him, but luckily for me — is doing this 'Exorcist' opening teaser." She added, “I don’t know what he was thinking, really.” She continued, “He had an oxygen tank and he just kind of held my boob, because that was in the script. He was supposed to be like, ‘The power of Christ compels you.’ I just remember being like, ‘Ah, this is the surrealism that André Breton, Salvador Dali were talking about.'”
Onset, Brando was characterized as "very chatty," and he wore an earpiece the entire time. Lyonne said, “So, I had Brando with the earpiece and the hand on the boob, and the makeup” she added, “and not to curse, but, ‘Your mother sucks c—s in hell,’ and so on.” She continued, “This was all happening at once, and I remember like, ‘You know, showbiz is all right.’ In that moment, showbiz was A-okay.”
The actress, like most people, admitted she felt unable to communicate with Brando because she was working with a great actor. She said that it was "the highlight” of her “professional career." According to the New York Post, Brando was to be paid $2 million for his cameo as Father McFeely, for which he only completed one day of filming before dropping out of ‘Scary Movie 2.’ Woods was paid $1 million for four days of work as his replacement. Sadly, Brando died in 2004 at the age of 80, three years after the release of ‘Scary Movie 2.’
