Wow! See Authentic-Looking Fake Breasts Created By Oscar Winning Special Effects Makeup Artist Greg Cannom

Believe it or not, the breasts above are fake.
To realistically portray the late Anna Nicole Smith, actress Agnes Bruckner was faced with a challenge.
She had to go from a B bra cup size to a DD to play the star in the Lifetime biopic The Anna Nicole Story, but she wasn't willing to go under the surgeon's knife to achieve the look.

So the filmmakers turned to Oscar-winning special effects makeup artist Greg Cannom, who designed state-of-the art prosthetic breasts that were applied during four-hour-long fitting sessions to the 27-year-old each morning prior to shooting.

Make-up artists Todd McIntosh and David De Leon were tasked with 'painstakingly' attaching the prosthetic breasts made of gel-filled silicone (which created the freedom for them to move and jiggle more like flesh) to Bruckner's chest. 

The pic on the second right is Bruckner's real boobs size, and for her wearing the prosthetic breasts was a surreal experience.
'They couldn't have been any more real looking,' she said. 'It was so strange, wearing them for the first time. I was standing there "topless", but it was really like I had a shirt on because there was nothing exposed of my own.'
'I'd look at myself, and I kept thinking, "Oh, my God, could you imagine if they really were that big?"', said the actress. 

What do you make of the fake breasts, nice work or not?
