The producers of new family film What A Girl Wants have chosen to doctor the film's print ads after complaints that star Amanda Bynes peace-sign poster was anti-war.

In the ads, teenager Bynes stands between two London Buckingham Palace guards and flashed the peace V-sign, and even the film's director Dennie Gordon admits the marketing bosses at Warner Brothers weren't thinking things through when they came up with the poster idea.

She says, "It's important the ads avoid political perception and yet it looks like Susan Sarandon at The Oscars. We've got to fix this.

"We do want to be sensitive to what is going on around the world and supporting to the guys and get them home soon."

The print ads have been altered but billboard posters will stay the same.
