Gwyneth Paltrow is really flat. Likewise for Natalie Portman.
Big breasts aren't mandatory for Hollywood. But like IceAlisa said, if they don't want women with breast implants, why did they give Keira digital breast implants for the movie publicity materials?
Personally I wouldn't put Bullock, Kidman, Paltrow, and Portman in the same category as Hudson and Knightly. Knightly and Hudson (particularly Hudson) are fairly flat. The other four aren't at all IMO.
I purposefully didn't add Paltrow and Hudson to my list because they have major insider connections (ie: famous actor parents) to make it in Hollywood despite their chest size. The others aren't as well-connected and had to do it more on talent alone.
In my spare time, I like to interview figure skating legends.
I worked in summer stock the summer after high school.
After one dress rehearsal, the director gave a note listing which female cast members should paint their cleavage. It was all the women whose costumes didn't cover it up.
I was watching Gerard Butler on Leno last night and he was telling stories of how they had to glue his left ear down for Tomb Raider because it stuck out further than his right ear. And on cold days the glue wouldn't stick so his makeup artist would spend the entire day cupping her hands around his head between takes.
I seriously doubt that a normal person would have noticed that. I barely notice Stephen Colbert's wonky ear.
I just read a Cosmo article on how to make it look like you have more cleavage with make-up.. so it's not just in movies
I'm thinking that the pirate wench costumes are unforgiving of the telltale signs that breast implants create, and the costume department doesn't want to have to deal with it this time.
