To Sienna Miller's credit, the It Girl Who Never Really Was continues to work steadily, despite never having fully congealed in the public's consciousness as a recognizable movie star. (Overheard at an Arclight Stardust screening: "Who's she again?" "She's the Australian one who slept with Ryan Phillippe's nanny, I think.") Miller is due later this year in Hippie Hippie Shake, a biopic set in the '60s in which her flower-child character was required to dispense with cumbersome material possessions (like clothing) and jump wholeheartedly into the era's acid-fueled orgy culture. One continuity problem: Her overly manicured private areas—a configuration popularly referred to today as a "landing strip"—were simply unheard of in the predominantly laissez-hair climate of the time.According to The Mirror, the problem was addressed with CGI: "A merkin or pubic wig simply wouldn't have done the trick, but luckily computer wizardry came to the rescue. Sienna's private parts were digitally enhanced, giving her a rather unruly, loud and proud bush." To our knowledge, this would make it the first major motion picture to require computer-generated pubes. We imagine before long, digital animators will tout proudly in DVD bonus materials how more powerful processors and advanced programming techniques now finally allow them to achieve the look and movement of real body hair. Pictured: A shot of one of the naked Miller scenes in question. Her nether regions are tastefully censored by Andy Serkis, who can literally play anything with a motion-capture suit on, including a merkin.
