um dude, why isn't the little girl wearing a shirt?


can they do that? is it legal to do in movies? it was kind of disturbing to see her without her shirt running around the island.

If both the girl and all of her legal guardians (read: parents) approve of the way the scene is to be shot, and if there is a welfare worker present, then they may shoot a topless scene of a younger girl, but there must be absolutely no sexuality whatsoever to the scene, and there needs to be a reason for her to be nude. In this case, the heat on the island, and then lack of shirt on her playmate Richard would both have been reasons (plus, small children in hot places tend to simply take their clothes off to get comfortable)

She is a younger girl, way before puberty would hit. So in fact, her breasts wouldn't be in existence, so there wasn't anything sexual about it...just a younger girl out without a shirt having fun.


"One day I woke up
I woke up knowing
Today is the day I will die
Cashdogg was barking
Went to the park and
Enjoyed it one last time
I called my mother
Told her I loved her
And I begged her not to cry
I wrote a letter
That said I'd miss her
And I signed that goodbye..."

I don't see why people are so offended over a little girl without a shirt! Imagine if a little girl in real life would have grown up on an island alone with her mother, and another child. Do you really think that she is going to be so modest to wear a top to cover her breast when no one else is on that island? It wasn't like her breast were in bloom, neither was there any activity of sexuality.

The General people at large tend to think that children are raped, murdered, or molested simply because their breast are exposed, but in reality the victims are usually those that are totally clothed.

I will agree that topless girls were more acceptable 20 years ago than it is now because all this mis-leading hysteria!

way before puberty? you got it twisted

You know, I don't find this stuff amusing anymore...

reply

Agree with the 1st post. It was VERY disturbing.

reply

Frankly, I thought it was rather cute! I see nothing disturbing about a topless girl at that age, as long as she is viewed as being cute... not sexy!

reply

Yeah damn!! God created us NUDE!! besides...there is no God.

They live on an island. They are free. Sense you're freaking out about this subject here is how I look at it. If you don't freak out about stuff like that then you have a clean mind. If you do freak out about a little girl only in shorts then you have a very disturbed mind who needs to get their head out of the gutter and stay away from children.

I don't remember how old she was exactly, but they are plenty of pictures of me running around the beach topless when I was a kid. There is no problem with it as long as the girl or the way she is photographed isn't sexualized.

People need to stop being so uptight about everything. Children like to run around naked. There was nothing sexual about the scenes. I don't know why everyone flips out over things like that these days.

reply

I have seen thousands of Little Girls presenting themselves as topless in public and I am not disturbed over it at all! It is unfortunate that hysteria has to make such a big deal out of it and turn something very innocent into something very filthy! If someone is offended over the nipples of a school-age girl, then here are a few places you would want to avoid traveling to for you Summer Vacation:

France
Germany
England
Italy
Spain
Indonesia
Tahiti
Samoa
Figi
The Netherlands
Brazil
India
Egypt
Philippines
Vietnam
Cambodia
Most Countries around the World!

These places have topless little girls running around not only on the beaches, but in the parks, arcades, Grocery Stores, and a lot of them even eating in a restrunt! As you can see that its America that is over paranoid over a little girl's nipples!

Thank you. If there were a "like" button, I would push it.

reply

Frankly I thought that she was rather cute without the shirt! If I was scripting the film, I would have her without a shirt through out her entire screen time! After all she was alone with just her mother, and Richard; so who was going to see her anyway???

reply

erm, cos thats what kids do on beaches

reply

Why do you mention only shirt, when it is obvious that she doesn't wear shoes, socks, trousers, a sweater, a coat (if possible a fur one), a cap, gloves and a scarf. This is all necessary to survive on tropical island. Obviously the movie authors didn't realize the danger they exposed the actress, and showing her shirtless, coatless and gloveless made the whole movie completely unbelievable.

Would you call Milla Jovovich a "little girl"? The first poster is very clear about it, he is so excited about a 10 (or less) y.o. topless girl.

reply

I have been to several islands in Polynesia and there are more girls running around 'shirtless' than the boys! Infact they even run topless in the rain!
