However, appearing in her soon-to-be released movie ‘Your Highness’ executives decided to cover up the actress’s rear end, opting for a full bikini bottom after thinking a thong was “inappropriate.” Seriously.
Entertainment Weekly was first to notice the change, as Universal added brown bikini bottoms over Natalie’s thong using CGI effects to avoid re-shooting her scenes. The decision to do so was reportedly made so the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) would approve the trailer for screening to “appropriate audiences.”
Fresh off of filming ‘Black Swan’ and its much-hyped graphic lesbian sex scene, this simple butt-shot seems rather tame.
But fans of Natalie Portman (and her rear end) fear not – ‘Your Highness’, which received an ‘R’ rating, will feature Natalie’s unaltered bottom in scenes when it is released next year.
Starring Natalie, James Franco, Danny McBride and Zooey Deschanel, ‘Your Highness’ is a comedic action-adventure flick set in medieval times. The flick is scheduled for release April 8, 2011.
