Movie maker Martin Campbell had to digitally create an emaciated baby in Angelina Jolie's new movie BEYOND BORDERS, because he couldn't use a real starving child.

The director thought about using an animatronic baby for a pivotal scene, in which Jolie saves the tot from a vulture, but it simply looked unnatural.

He ended up making a toddler "with a big head" appear emaciated using computer technology.

Campbell's problems didn't end there - he even had to draft in chocolate bananas for another scene, after discovering the young African boy who had to eat real bananas was allergic to them.

Campbell explains, "When Clive Owen hands him a banana in the scene, it had to be made of white chocolate because the worst of his allergies is bananas."
