Oh freakin' please, TMZ. Grasping for straws much? He didn't want to pose for pics or sign autographs, why? Because he didn't want to put up with the papasleezerazzi who'd be asking him personal questions which is "NOT" a right as much as you'd like to think it is.

Where's the big THREAD for Brad Pitt being booed at Cannes, and that was after his movie finished? You people really ARE biased in the news room, aren't you?

I guess Sugar Tits is too busy to make a little time for his fans, even if he is at a publicity event.

He was booed for going topless on the street which was tacky to the French. Both men and women can go topless on the beach in France which is considered acceptable.

Must celebrities always be reminded that if it were not for fans, not for publicity, they would not be celebrities?

On the one hand, you can understand how annoying it must get, the public is very demanding. On the other hand, if they didn't want the attention, would they have gotten onstage?

Give it a break on Mel, that TMZ staffer was right, they Boo 'anyone' that doesn't stop.

And whats wrong with Mel's ta ta's? They look alright to me. Dude looks pretty decent for his age.

And one big reason 'The Beaver' isn't doing well in theaters is it's in only 22 theaters, 105 at it's most when the average opening theater count 2,800 to 3,900 theaters. Reviews... one of his Best roles and a highly rated (outside the hollywood yahoos) by your average viewer.

The image is worked over in photoshop.

This one looks nothing like the other shots which don't show the same visual aberrations or the man-boobs. It's a poor quality image which helps hide changes but it still shows several sections of altered pixels.


I have enlarged a portion that shows one definite square of flesh that is sticking out into the wall and wood trim behind him as TTT59 noticed.

Look at the strokes along side the string. There are many indications of patching after stretching the flesh in the image. The string's shadow is missing on one side where it should have one. The string is distorted and even changes direction a little where it shouldn't which would have happened from the same stretching.

If you drawn an imaginary line from the patch of flesh in the circle to the string he is wearing, you'll see that is right where the string is distorted.

His rib cage juts out unnaturally then comes back in to where the horizontal balcony edge meets with his real shape because too many elements would have been involved. It would have taken too much time to change the whole balcony edge. Perhaps they wanted their payday before someone else sold similar images. The whole area looks very altered.

There are obvious clone tool and "paint brush" strokes showing and this is just a small section.

It is difficult to alter parts of an image and not have nearby objects affected. There is frequently repair work to be done after any edits are made, as anyone who uses Photoshop or other raster-based image editing software. The pixels always show manipulation (repaired areas are often less pixelized unless the clone tool is used carefully) although it can be minimized if one takes their time. Not a lot of time was spent on this image because it is all very visible.
