The Great Nipple Hunt continues
: We’ve been dutifully reporting attacks of prudes on tipples and now here’s another case of national mammarophobia:
Teen actress Lindsay Lohan’s breasts have been digitally reduced for forthcoming Disney film Herbie: Fully Loaded, to avoid offending family audiences.
Test screenings for the new movie, the fourth sequel to the 1968 film The Love Bug about a Volkswagen Beetle car with a mind of its own, indicated that some parents felt Lohan’s character Maggie Peyton was too raunchy for a children’s film.
Disney technicians were forced to plough through numerous scenes – especially those showing the busty actress jumping up and down at a motor racing track, reducing her breasts by two cup sizes and raising revealing necklines on her T-shirts.
The director denies it.
The problem these days — when grown people make news hunting down nipples — is that you can’t tell the parody from the truth.
And then again, let’s not forget the surgical speculation.
All of which leads to just one conclusion: In America, breasts are news.
