We have no idea why Michael Bay has been bellyaching about the marketing of The Island (actually, that $12 million opening gives us a pretty good idea why, but whatever). Is there a better way to sell to Bay's target audience than covering the city with images of Scarlett Johansson's breasts so huge that the actress nearly fainted at the sight of her own ample anatomy?
The Lost in Translation actress slammed on the brakes when confronted with a giant advert of herself in Hollywood, according to the Daily Record. [...]
She said: "I was driving through Los Angeles and I look up and see the biggest photo of me I have ever seen in my life on a massive ad space.
"I screamed and slammed on the brakes. I couldn't believe it.
"It's very strange to see my cleavage the size of a brontosaurus. My breasts were huge.
"I had long hair and my goodness, I couldn't get past the cleavage."
You know what? We couldn't get past the cleavage, either, circling the block over and over again. And we saw the movie, but if you ask us what it's about, we'd say it's a thoughtful look at a future in which tight-fitting white bodysuits have finally replaced jog bras, despite their obvious inadequacy as a support garment.
