Shortly after the film's release, Moore was asked whether she thought the flim was 'gross'. Her reply? "It's a matter of taste, I suppose."
[The film's dreaded pig scenes were shot, incongruously, on a beautifully preserved estate in Montpelier, Virginia, that was once the home of James Madison (and Mason Verger's 'home' was once a residence of the Vanderbilt family). As for the pigs, one was affectionately called Prosciutto because he didn't behave. The trainers would say to him, "You know what you're going to be?"]
