James Cameron: Why The Na'vi Have Breasts!
"Let's focus on things that can create otherness that are not off-putting," Cameron explains
EXCLUSIVE: James Lipton taped an episode of Inside the Actors Studio last week with the “king of the world” himself, Avatar director James Cameron. Uinterview has a sneak peek at what you can expect. In quite possibly the most awkward moment of the night, Lipton asked about the physical characteristics of the movie’s alien women. "Why do the Na’vi have breasts?" Lipton inquired with the straightest face in Hollywood.
Once the audience’s laughter subsided, Cameron paused from laughing and responded, "Because this is a movie for human people." The crowd roared again. Cameron went on to explain further his philosophy of the Na’vi character design. He boiled it down to: "Let’s focus on things that can create otherness that are not off-putting." –JOE GALBO
