Movie beauties Minnie Driver and Emmy Rossum had to wear silicone pads to boost their busts during the filming of THE Phantom Of The Opera.

While their big-breasted British co-star Jennifer Ellison had no need for the aid of "chicken fillets", Driver and Rossum needed to be filled out to suit the nineteenth century period picture.

Ellison says, "Thankfully, in the period the film's set the fashion was for big, rosy chests. There was no need to bandage mine down, they were fine.

"But Minnie and Emmy had to be stuffed with padding and chicken fillets (silicone pads)."
