What A Boob! Comic-Con Fans Think Total Recall Actress Really Has Three Breasts

One thing on the minds of Total Recall fans when they first heard about the Len Wiseman reboot was, “Is there going to be a three-breasted woman?” I’ll admit, I was curious myself as to whether or not they would include that unusual detail from the original but we found out the answer was yes. Then the marketing geniuses behind the Colin Farrell-starring feature decided to bring her to Comic-Con International in San Diego and actress Kaitlyn Leeb got more than she bargained for. Fans thought her tripple-breasted prosthetic was real. Picture of Ms. Leeb after the jump.

Below is how Leeb was presented on the floor at Comic-Con and pretty much exactly how she’ll look in the film.

Now, I can expect a certain amount of head tilting on this look, it is quite unique after all, but what I can’t understand are people seriously asking this woman if those breasts are real. But that’s exactly what happened.

“There were a bunch of people at Comic-Con asking if I had surgery for the third one,” said Leeb with a laugh while speaking to the Calgary Herald. “Others thought that the two on the side were real. I guess that’s the one thing that bothers me the most is that they think I’m out there prancing around Comic-Con with my breasts out. They really are not mine.”

Leeb must never have attended Comic-Con before because people with varying body parts hanging out is not an unusual sight but to actually believe this woman would have breast augmentation of this kind is just plain dumb. Yes, we know actresses are under pressure in Hollywood to get boob jobs, and while that’s awful enough, this is just absurd.

And just in case you were wondering – none of them are real. Leeb sat through four hours of prosthetic application to get three new breasts that weren’t hers. The appliance was created specifically for her during filming of Total Recall last year.

“They didn’t want to release too early that there would be a three-breasted woman from the original,” she Leeb. Actress Lycia Naff played the role in the 1990 original. “It was hush-hush. I had to fly to Los Angeles a couple of times last June and July to do the body cast to create the three breasts and my agent said ‘Don’t tell anyone!’”

According to Yahoo, Leeb has been trending in their searches since Comic-Con. They write, “Not surprisingly, 77 percent of her online interest has come from men. Perhaps an indication that some parents and wives need to do more policing, searches for the actress are coming from kids under 13 all the way to appreciative gents in their fifties.”

To be fair, Leeb never specified whether it was men or women directing the breast comments at her. All the ridiculous questions aside, the actress is certainly aware of what this role could do to her career. “I guess I have to be careful with the next roles that would come up,” she said. “You don’t want to get typecast.”

    Sheesh. I can’t believe people would actually ask her if they were real! People get some crazy plastic surgeries done, but I don’t think anyone would do that.

  • Adam R. Charpentier

    Hahaha! ‘“I guess I have to be careful with the next roles that would come up,” she said. “You don’t want to get typecast.”’ I am entirely too curious exactly how she expects to be typecast. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be the three-breasted prostitute in Othello? Or the three-breasted prostitute in the live-action The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh?

    Well, you gotta admit, that is one HELL of a good makeup job.

    Heck, I recall they had an actual amputee, the glorious Lacey Henderson, with a gun-leg at the Troublemaker booth a couple years back to push Planet Terror / Grindhouse, and people asked if she had the leg cut off just for the job.

    (And don’t tell me she wasn’t a real amputee; I don’tt think I could take it…)

  • Terence Ng

    Well, I’d imagine that the majority of the questions were from men, since I doubt most women think that another woman would have two real breasts that far apart on her chest…

  • sanfrangeek

    I can kind of understand people’s curiosity. It’s not like that condition doesn’t exist. It’s called Polymastia.

  • Paul Giachetti

    “You don’t want to get typecast.”
    You mean when she reprises the role when they re-remake Total Recall again in 2015? 

  • Captain ZADL

    I don’t know why it would be such a secret, since the movie so far appears to be a shot for shot remake.

  • Jaime A. Garcia

    Meh, still not that interested in this movie. No amount of breasts will entice me to see a remake of a classic.

    “Not surprisingly, 77 percent of her online interest has come from men. Perhaps an indication that some parents and wives need to do more policing”

    Oh wow, the sexism in that statement is just horrible. Why would men not be able to google her? Why would wives be policing there husbands internet searching?

    I mean thats like me saying ““Not surprisingly, 77 percent of online interest in Taylor Lautner has come from women. Perhaps an indication that some parents and husbands need to do more policing.”

    I really wonder about what goes through peoples minds sometimes.

    Hahahahaha, a classic. LOL

    An action comedy version of a science fiction story starring the governator, made during the 1990′s is not a classic anything & most certainly not a classic movie.

    People can be a little dim sometimes.

     Like the time they went to Mars in the remake?  :/

    Come on, you have to think the vast majority of comments were tongue-in-cheek. These people are at a place where people are in all sorts of intricate and well-made costumes, there’s no way people weren’t being cute about it.
