While reading through an article on a movie website, I came across one interesting tidbit.
Some people have seen the latest Lindsay Lohan movie Herbie Fully Loaded. Apparently the director of that movie was quite conservative. He felt that Lohan's breasts were to big, bouncy, and well, unnatural (not in the sense of fake, but unusual). He had his CG team use computers to digitally reduce the size and bounciness of her breasts. He also used the computers to keep the shirt white when it got wet.
This poses a *thing that I don't have a word for yet*. While the part where he made the shirt stay white, even when it got the "wet clear" effect (anyone who has ever worn a white shirt and gotten it wet knows about this phenomenon, the shirt turns from opaque to clear, as if it were a window), that was acceptable. It was to protect the younger children and the people going for a high moral straddle from seeing Lindsay's breasts and bra. The other part of his CG acts, reducing the breasts, seems like he went a little too far. While Lindsay is a well equip ed person in terms of natural attributes, she is also quite intelligent, and breaks the theory of big breasts=low IQ. The younger children will not care if they see big bouncy breasts, as long as they are covered enough, they wont even look at them. While older people may spare a glance now and then, they will focus on the move. This raises the question: Why did he waste time reducing them? They were fine before, and most of the audience wouldn't care about their size. There are a few possible answers, but none of these are necessarily true either.
All i am saying is that there is a line between making scenes acceptable, and going overboard.
