A former Universal Studios stuntwoman for the "WaterWorld" attraction sued her former employer, alleging she was forced to wear a racy uniform from which her left breast fell out during a performance, according to court papers.
Cynthia R. Thompson of Canyon Country, whose age was not revealed, also alleges she was fired because her the company wanted a younger woman. According to the suit, Thompson was a stuntwoman and actress on the "WaterWorld -- A Live Sea Spectacular" attraction and played the part of Helen since the day it opened in October 1995.
The show, which features stunts and fireworks, is still featured at Universal Studios and was inspired by the Kevin Costner film, "Waterworld," that premiered the same year. In May 2006, female performers were told to wear new uniforms with flesh-colored bottoms that featured a demi-cup bra providing no support for their breasts, the suit states. Male stuntmen were not asked to wear revealing costumes, according to the suit.
"(Thompson) was concerned that she would have a costume malfunction and that her breasts would fall out of the bathing suit top," the suit states. "She complained that she was wearing something that made her look as if she was naked."
When Thompson complained, she was told by a Universal talent coordinator that "this was the costume" Universal liked and that it had "...the look they wanted," the suit states.
On the first day the female performers wore their new costumes in June 2006, Thompson's left breast fell out during her performance, the suit states. She later changed back into her original uniform that had a sports bra inside, but had to continue wearing the flesh-colored bottoms, the suit states.
The flesh-colored bottoms made Thompson appear naked as she went across the set on a circus rope and guests began to stare up her skirt, the suit states.
Humiliated, the stuntwoman eventually returned to wearing her original blue bottoms, according to the suit.
