Actress Selma Blair's outrageously oversized fake breasts in her new movie DIRTY SHAME were inspired by British porn star ZENA FULSOM.

Blair appears as exhibitionist dancer URSULA UDDERS in the JOHN WATERS-directed movie, which used the expertise of make-up and special effects prosthetics veteran TONY GARDNER.

Gardner, who also bulked up Gwyneth Paltrow's svelte frame for her movie Shallow Hal, had Waters' office faxed him pages from breast fetish magazines and emailed him websites where he would research sex performer Zena Fulsom.

Waters says, "She's this English porn star with breasts bigger than her head.

"I always wondered about women that have (breasts) like that. How do they do normal things? Like go to the dentist or the DEPARTMENT OF MOTOR VEHICLES? That's what gave me the idea."

But while Blair was happy with the results for her movie, she admits she'd never want such heavy endowment in real life.

She explains, 'I'm not a large-breasted girl, to say the least. But for people who have no idea these enormous breasts aren't real, they'll be like, 'Oh, that poor girl! She must be deformed.'"
