Bustier Caused Raquel Welch to Be Held Up


Raquel Welch


The wiring inside the actress' bustier had set off the metal detector alarm in Chicago's airport, leading to a security check in front of other passengers.

Veteran actress Raquel Welch turned heads at a U.S. airport security checkpoint last week - after her bustier set off metal detectors.

The former Hollywood pin-up activated alarms after arriving at Chicago's O'Hare International airport, and held up the security checkpoint line while a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agent patted down her garments in full view of waiting passengers.

According to the New York Post, the agent blamed the problem on the boning in Welch's bustier. But a spokesperson for Welch has laughed off the incident, adding, "She probably isn't going to fly in a bustier anymore."

Raquel Welch made her big break in Hollywood through the role in "Fantastic Voyage". She also cemented her presence in controversial movie "Myra Breckinridge" about a transsexual who wants to be taken seriously as an actress, although it was panned by critics.
