James Cameron Touts “Avatar”‘s 3-D Boobs

In a new interview with Playboy magazine, “Avatar” director James Cameron discusses how he set about creating the movie’s 3-D body parts. “Right from the beginning,” Cameron reveals of actress Zoe Saldana’s 10-foot-tall, blue Na’vi warrior woman, Neytiri, “I said, ‘She’s got to have tits.'” While her breasts aren’t technically exposed, as Cameron puts it, “they’re right there.” One effect resulted in illuminated nipples, but the shot was censored subsequently to score a PG-13 rating. And if guys get wood from the sight of the sexily arranged pixels? “If such a thing should ­happen,” Cameron notes, “and I’m not saying it will — that would be fine.” Phew. [Playboy]
