The Vagina Mysteries

6/18/2007 8:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Katherine HeiglThe title of the hit movie "Knocked Up" suggests that Katherine Heigl's character is going to give birth, and boy does she ever! If you haven't yet seen the comedy, sorry to spoil it for ya, but there are multiple shots of a baby popping out ... with the camera right there between mom's legs. Or was it?

TMZ put its detective cap on to find out how "Knocked Up" writer/director Judd Apatow created this graphic scene and still managed to get an R Rating. We spoke with Larry of Honey's Place (an adult novelty distributor often called the "Costco of the porn industry") who believes the scene could have been created with special effects. Larry told us "We have vaginas in our warehouse. (Holy moly!) Manufacturers like Doc Johnson take a real porn star and make a latex mold of the body -- and they are pretty lifelike." Gee. Larry doesn't pussyfoot around.

Linda Teglovic, agent/owner of Body Parts Models says it's a tough job. "I would have a hard time finding a girl to do that," adding she has never seen a request for a "vagina double" on any breakdowns (casting call lists) that she's seen. But then again, anything's possible.

The New York Times Magazine reported in May that "The Devil Wears Prada" star Anne Hathaway was originally cast in "Knocked Up," but pulled out because she had problems with the vagina. Apatow told the Times "Hathaway dropped out of the film because she didn't want to allow us to use real footage of a woman giving birth to create the illusion that she is giving birth."

The MPAA wouldn't return our calls and Apatow was unreachable. Our best guess, culled from these snatches of information, is that "Knocked Up" used a stunt vagina.

Mystery solved?

Saw the movie and it was entertaining. The acting was superb. A good comedy as long as you don't think too much. A bit long though. However that was the biggest baby I have ever seen. It must have weighed 15 pounds.....huge!

The most shocking thing about the birthing scene in "Knocked Up" wasn't the crowning baby head but the bald vagina. What 9 months pregnant woman gets a Brazilian before the birth? I guess there's no way they could show a vagna that was TOO real. I guess I could be wrong about this as I have never had a baby. Does the hospital staff shave the area before a vaginal delivery?

The crowning shot certainly looked real to me.

They may have allowed it because a vagina with a crowning head looks totally different and not sexual in any way.

My wife noticed the Discovery Channel in the credits. I think those shots were from a documentary on giving birth.

Why are people making comments on this site about you have nothing better to do than worry about that loser?

Anyway I thought this movie was sooooooooooooooooooooo funny! I think maybe that comment about Anne Hathaway is made up. Did anyone see her in that movie 'Havoc'.
She totally took off her top and showed her breasts and simulated a sex act while her friend was done by three guys! I can't see how she would object to have a fake vagina scene. Anyway it's her bad move because I think Katherine was great in this movie!

I saw that movie. It had its moments but was way over the top with the fake belly and crotch. Do we really need to see that?! Other tthan that it was average.
