James Cameron Discusses Na’vi Boobs

James Cameron Discusses Na’vi Boobs
by Dan Zinski of Lightly Buzzed
It never occurred to me that this was an issue, but apparently, some people are annoyed that the Na’vi have boobs, because technically the Na’vi aren’t mammals and therefore shouldn’t possess mammaries.  This whole quasi-controversy falls roughly under the heading of Stuff Know-it-All Geeks Whine About on IMDb Because What Else Are They Going to Fill Their Empty Hours With?, but nevertheless, James Cameron felt compelled to address it.  Speaking to James Lipton and his audience of film school students on a soon-to-be-aired Inside the Actors Studio, Cameron said the following about Na’vi boobage and why it exists:
Because this is a movie for human people.
That’s a much better answer than the one I might’ve expected.  You know, something along the lines of, “Well, you see, the Na’vi are actually descended from blahblahblah so the breasts are really vestigial blahblahblah and they still serve a decorative blahblahblah function…”  Thank you James Cameron for not insulting us by making up some crap just to placate the five nitwits who think this matters.  “People like boobs so we gave the Na’vi boobs” is more than sufficient.

Correction. MEN love boobs. Afterall, despite what the media is saying, this is a movie made by men, for men, who drug their girlfriends into the theatere so it would break Titanic's record.

Men were drugging their girlfriends to go see Avatar? Surely I would have seen that on the news and blog posted about it.
