'G.I. Joe' director denies making Sienna Miller wear rubber breasts

Stephen Sommers (The Mummy) tells EW that he did not insist that Sienna Miller’s breasts be enhanced for his forthcoming action movie G.I. Joe. A widely circulated news story quotes the British actress (pictured, in G.I. Joe) as saying that, in the film, she wears, “a tight black leather outfit. And much bigger boobs…. They gave me these things that looked like chicken fillets. The director said, ‘I’m gonna be honest, I like girls with big boobs,’ and I don’t have them so we made them bigger…. At least he’s honest. But I was mildly offended.” Sommers says he was aware of the story –- we suppose you could say he kept abreast of the situation -– but claims it is untrue. “Everybody here laughed because they know I would NEVER say that to an actress,” says the filmmaker. “I guess the costume department gave her a tight fitting bra, but no one gave her rubber breasts or whatever. It is 100 percent Sienna Miller.”

Sommers adds that G.I. Joe, which also stars Dennis Quaid and features a cameo from his Mummy star Brendan Fraser, was partly inspired by the Sean Connery-era James Bond movies. “I always loved the old Bonds,” he says. “It’s funny now how Bond wants to be Bourne. I loved Quantum of Solace, but it was like, man, this is a completely different movie to the Bonds I grew up with. In a very contemporary way, G.I. Joe is inspired by the memory of the kind of movies I saw when I was younger. I remember being in the theater for Thunderball and the big underwater battle at the end of that movie just blew my socks off. In G.I. Joe, there’s an underwater battle under the polar icecap that’s Thunderball times 10!”
