It's probably not the kind of advance publicity they were hoping for, but turns out people are talking about this summer's G.I. Joe movie... because they want to know whether Sienna Miller's breasts are real.
The rumor came directly from Miller herself last year, when she spoke about the movie's director, The Mummy's Stephen Sommers, and his alleged prediliction for large breasts:
(I wear a) tight black leather outfit. And much bigger boobs. They gave me these things that looked like chicken fillets. The director said, 'I'm gonna be honest, I like girls with big boobs,' and I don't have them so we made them bigger. At least he's honest. But I was mildly offended.
Now Sommers has addressed the non-controversy himself, telling Entertainment Weekly:
Everybody here laughed because they know I would NEVER say that to an actress... I guess the costume department gave her a tight fitting bra, but no one gave her rubber breasts or whatever. It is 100 percent Sienna Miller.
So now we know... Not that we were really wondering that much in the first place. Given that Miller's comments were six months' old and mostly forgotten, you'll hopefully forgive us for suspecting that Sommers' rebuttal is a somewhat unusual way of trying to inject some interest into the mostly-ignored summer movie by making it seem a little more interesting (and sexy) than it actually is.
GI Joe: Rise Of Cobra is released August 7th in the US.
