James Cameron says Sigourney Weaver is smoking to criticize you

We know you don't remember any of the parts in Avatar that weren't blue giants riding luckdragons, but take our word for it when we say that Sigourney Weaver's character Grace smoked in the movie. Director James Cameron told the New York Times that the character (who spends much of her day motionless and controlling her giant blue avatar) sports a disregard for her body as "a negative comment about people in our real world living too much in their avatars, meaning online and in video games."

We're assuming he means video games other than Avatar: The Video Game of The Movie That, Let's Be Honest, Is Pretty Much Already A Video Game and Not a Particularly Well-Written One At That. Naturally.
