Sitting in Michael's Lap
Saw Tomb Raider today, starring Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft ... a beautiful young lady, all things considered, and very "well endowed" for being so enviably slim ... was actually wincing in pain at the end when she was running in slow motion – ouch! - let's just say that gravity was not being kind ....
My point? I can't help but notice that more and more athletic, svelte actresses are coming up "well stacked," to use the vernacular. I mean, sure, SOME of them were doubtless blessed by the boob fairy, but the rest...? The rest have been ... ahem ... helped.
Do I have something against breast augmentation? Not at all ... when taken in moderation, breasts can be very attractive ... but I can't help but think that all these busty ladies taking over Hollywood are giving the average woman a bit of a complex.
I could go into teens and eating disorders here, but to be honest I don't want this to become a big "social" issue – so let's keep it shallow, shall we?
My suggestion? A small addition to the credits:
"No live animals or artificial mammaries were harmed in the making of this film."
Or something like that ... maybe:
"Body by Dow – please recycle where facilities exist"
No? Too callous? Maybe we could just put an asterisk by the name of any actress who has been cosmetically altered ...
Am I alone here?
