Most of the time, when someone only has a few minutes of screen time in a film, they don't get a whole lot of attention. You know, cameos, walk-ons and extras don't often take the spotlight away from superstars. But when you have three breasts, well, that tends to change more things than just your bra size.
Case in point: According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Total Recall" actress Kaitlyn Leeb has become a viral sensation thanks to her recent appearance at Comic-Con in character — and now she wants the world to know that her character's third breast is just part of the costume.

If there was one victor among the movies paneling at San Diego Comic-Con this year, it'd have to be … Marvel. Or was it "Man of Steel"? Or maybe "The Hobbit"?
Another Con's in the can, and we've emerged with new intel on a handful of high-profile mega-movies. There weren't necessarily any groundbreaking casting announcements this year, but first footage from movies like the new Superman flick, "Oz: The Great and Powerful," "Pacific Rim" and "Elysium" had fans and bloggers buzzing big time.
Check out the biggest movie scoops below. What we should add, #16: Getting in line at 7 a.m. does not guarantee you entry into the con's marquee venue (Hall H). Not even for a 6 p.m. panel. And yep, we learned that the hard way. – By Bryan Enk and Kevin Polowy
Not everyone can pull of a skimpy catsuit — this gallery isn't that. This one, however, is of people who could totally pull it off but didn't, at least while they were at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con.
Instead, you'll see Kristen Stewart dressing to match the Comic-Con logo, a breathtaking Michelle Williams, little Mackenzie Foy signing her first autographs and Stan Lee looking like the superhero deity that he is.
It may not be a comic book, but you're still gonna want to flip away through this special Hot People Looking Hot gallery.
When we first met them five years ago, they were anonymous teenagers; today, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are among some of the most recognizable faces in movies. Stewart even made reference to their coming-of-age together, saying to Lautner, "The first time I met you, you were a kid. After 'New Moon,' you weren't a kid anymore." Get More »
Comic-Con President John Rogers kicked things off by expressing his condolences to the family of Gisela G., the fan who was killed earlier this week when she was struck by a car while waiting in line to get into the "Twilight" panel.
Eric Moro of Wikia, who served as the panel's moderator, then introduced Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Stephenie Meyer and little Mackenzie Foy to the stage. Director Bill Condon wasn't able to attend due to being in London for scoring sessions on the film, but he had a pre-recorded greeting that included the announcement that they were about to see the first seven minutes of "Breaking Dawn - Part 2."

With Comic-Con in full swing, expect to be carried away like Noah's ark by the flood of superhero movie news, the tip of the iceberg being 20th Century Fox's triple announcement: two good, one bad.
According to Deadline, Fox has finally confirmed "Chronicle" director Josh Trank to reboot "Fantastic Four," while one of the studio's other big Marvel properties, "Daredevil," is now flying blind without attached director David Slade ("The Twilight Saga: Eclipse"). On the plus side, they've nabbed fan fav Joe Cornish of "Attack the Block" to direct "Rust," an adaptation of Royden Lepp's sepia-toned graphic novel which the studio purchased a year ago. Get More »
Stephenie Meyer has something up her sleeve.
The bestselling author of the "Twilight" series isn't giving away any details but she apparently has something special in store for the attendees of this year's San Diego Comic-Con, according to Deadline. Get More »
There may only be a few things officially lined up for "The Hunger Games" at this year's Comic-Con event (we can probably — hopefully! — count on a proper "Catching Fire" cast and filmmaker panel next summer), but there's still some real potential for the annual shindig-o-geekery to make us feel like we're living right there in Victor's Village.
One of the highlights of every Comic-Con is the costumes, as fans try to outdo each other with elaborate and painstaking reproductions of the outfits worn by their favorite heroes and heroines from comics, movies and cartoons. But this year, there's going to be no competition at all, because there's a new cosplayer headed to Comic-Con — and as a brand new teaser poster reveals, he's a true wizard.
Sure, the beach, barbecues and vacations are nice for the general population, but we pop culture junkies know that the best part of summer is San Diego Comic-Con. All the fun kicks off on July 12, and we're getting ready to head back to the West Coast to keep you in the loop on what you can expect from some of the hottest upcoming movies.
Our own Executive Editor Kevin Polowy is eager to trek to 2012 Comic-Con to see how Martin Freeman and friends measure up to Hobbits past (get it? Short joke.), hear how many times Quentin Tarantino uses the word "awesome" over the course of the one-hour "Django Unchained" panel (over/under: 16), and once again gorge on those disgustingly delicious Mexican egg rolls at that one place on 1st Ave (Mexican egg rolls!).
