James Cameron appeared on Oprah last week (short clip here) and you know you've impressed Oprah Winfrey when she actually sees your movie in a theater—which she hasn't done since the '90s. To repay this kindness, Cameron's effects artists created an Oprah Na'vi. (Too bad, Lady Gaga: Cameron beat you to the paint-yourself-blue punch.)
After exchanging a greeting in Na'vi, Oprah asked Cameron if he's a spiritual person since the Na'vi greeting "I see you" is a phrase with a deeper meaning along the lines of "I understand who you are." Cameron replied, "I guess I must be, because this film represents a lot of ideas and feelings I have as an artist," he said, "… and the idea that we are all connected to each other as human beings…. When I became a scuba diver, I really realized how great nature's imagination is. This film was an attempt to kind of bottle that."Sponsored by Panasonic VIERA.
