Eva Green Sin City 2 poster banned in US for showing too much nipple
Controversy follows Scout Willis' topless #freethenipple protest in New York
A Sin City 2 poster starring Eva Green in a white chiffon bathrobe has been banned in the US for being too sexy, reports suggest.
The Penny Dreadful star, 33, appears on the poster as Ava Lord holding a steel handgun with red lacquered nails, cherry lipstick and a glittering diamond ring.
But the Motion Picture Association for America has deemed the promo inappropriate and rejected it for nudity or, more specifically, “curve of under breast and dark nipple/areola circle visible through sheer gown”, according to Page Six.
Green joins cast members Jessica Alba, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Josh Brolin and Bruce Willis for Frank Miller's thriller Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, set to be open in UK cinemas on 29 August.
Five other posters have already been released online, with editing work believed to be under way on the offending design.
The poster scandal follows in the wake of Scout Willis’ topless #freethenipple protest to highlight her outrage at anti-female nudity policies.
Bruce Willis’ 22-year-old daughter was angered when Instagram banned a photograph of a sweatshirt she had designed featuring two topless women.
Grace Coddington from US Vogue was also temporarily banned by the social media site after posting a nude cartoon of herself on a sun lounger.
