Olivia Wilde's Naked Boobs Are Not What They Seem

There's been a lot of buzz lately about Olivia Wilde's steamy sex scene with Ryan Reynolds in her upcoming comedy The Change-Up, but it turns out the boobs shown on screen don't actually belong to her. Or more specifically, that's her breast tissue, but her areolae were created by the magic of CGI. Basically it's the nipple version of Avatar, only unfortunately for thousands of pants-tenting dudes, it wasn't filmed in 3D.

Wilde recently confessed that the pasties she was wearing to film the scene accidentally ended up being visible on camera—so producers chose to digitally overwrite them with computer-created nipples.

Hm, if an actress takes the stance of refusing to be nude in her movies, but her body is digitally enhanced so that it appears naked in a scene, has she actually compromised her values? Ohhhhh, this is like one of those zen koans.


The best part is that she actually got final nipple approval. That's right, Wilde is such hot shit, the producers sent her an email with SEVEN nipple choices to peruse:

Please review nipple cover shot one through seven and decide which one is most like the original.

I don't know what I love more, the idea of Olivia Wilde hunkered over a laptop, frowningly staring at a bunch of different nipple images (and maybe occasionally pulling out her shirt to compare them to her own), or the fact that some CGI guy had to put together the assortment in the first place. How exactly do you determine what would be the right nipples for Olivia Wilde? Do you include an inverted one, just to cover all the bases?

Seriously, though, celebrities are so lucky. Who else gets to choose their ideal body part in order to look as attractive as humanly possible? I mean, for all we know, Wilde actually has some seriously whomperjawed boobs, totally pointing in different directions and covered with random tufts of bristly hair. (I'm not saying this is true, I'm saying it's a possibility.) If someone offered me the chance to digitally swap out a few less-than-perfect sections of my anatomy, man, I'd have a field day. In fact, I think I'd just do a whole body find-and-replace with Jennifer Aniston.

It's crazy how fake everything is in entertainment these days. If Wilde hadn't shared this story, no one would have been the wiser, and a ton of people would have been slobbering over what they thought were her actual boobs on screen. Makes you wonder just how how much is quietly altered behind the scenes, really. You expect stunts and special effects to be computer-enhanced, but who would have guessed that celebrities' body parts are often CGI as well? Maybe that explains why Demi Moore seems to look so good at 50 freaking years old.

What do you think about Olivia Wilde's stunt nipples? Would you sport a fake body part for the cameras?
