#Freethenipple Strikes Back: Eva Green’s Sin City Poster Too Breasty
Uproar as too much ‘curve of breast’ is ruled inappropriate
Graphic novel turned major film franchise Sin City is notorious for its racy movie posters; that picture of Jessica Alba in leather chaps probably hangs in the bedrooms of a generation of little brothers around the world.
Despite its film noir sex appeal being one of the movie’s major selling points, the Motion Picture Association for America has banned a promotional image of Eva Green posing in her role as Ava Lord. The image, which shows a red-lipped Green holding a pistol has been rejected for “curve of under breast and dark nipple/areola circle visible through sheer gown”.
The quote comes from Page Six, and translates as “we can see too much boob and nipple”. True, but only for those who are looking for it, surely? In the wake of Scout Willis’s topless protest in New York against Instagram’s anti-nipple policy and the #freethenipple trend, it’s a timely addition to the debate of whether or not female nudity should be celebrated, or in the case of Eva Green, condemned.
