Lord Of The Rings Costume Affects Otto's Back

Australian actress Miranda Otto's costume was so heavy during her stint in the Lord Of The Rings movies, she had to get the help of an osteopath to return her back to its original state.

The 36-year-old beauty, married to actor PETER O'BRIEN, wore a heavy, metallic costume for the PETER JACKSON-directed films and it took its toll on her body.

She says, "It took me a number of trips to the osteopath to click things back into place.

"I have one of those bodies that when you really punish it, things tend to go in different directions. It was gruelling for me because the costume, which was real chain mail, weighed about 20 pounds."
