French screen siren Eva Green has hit back after her Sin City 2 poster was doctored because it was deemed too risque.

The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) took issue with the noir-inspired promotional poster for Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For.

In it, Green, a one-time Bond girl, appears as Ava Lord, a sultry femme fatale, dressed in little more than a sheer dressing gown.a

The MPAA argued because the curve of her breast was visible through the gown, Green was essentially nude, forcing a reimaging of the poster.

But the Dark Shadows actress thinks it was all a storm in a teacup.

"I find it a bit odd," she told Vanity Fair.

"It seems like it's all just publicity - a lot of noise for nothing."

She said she found the original poster "really sexy" - and hardly offensive when considered alongside violence so often shown on screen.

"You have so many more violent things in the movie business," Green argued.

The Sin City films are adapted from Frank Miller's graphic, highly stylised and often brutually violent novels of the same name.
