Raquel Welch: O'Hare Security Alarm Triggered By Welch's Bustier After Oprah Interview

Chicago native Raquel Welch was back in her home town on Tuesday, taping an interview with Oprah Winfrey. The 70s sex symbol is still turning heads -- at least at O'Hare Airport.

On her way back to Los Angeles, the actress, whose saucy poster for the film "One Million Years B.C." launched her to fame in 1966, was held up at security. The cause: her bustier, which she said "is lined with little strips of metal," according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

She had planned to change out of the obviously metal-detectable garment before arriving to the airport, but had stayed in the city later than anticipated signing books and greeting fans, the Sun-Times reports.

In probably their most exciting moment in a long time, a pair of O'Hare's Transportation Security Administration officers patted Welch down before determining she was not a safety risk and letting her continue to her gate. Her publicist told the paper the officers were "absolutely lovely" and that Welch "was laughing."

Welch's Oprah appearance will air March 29th, the day her book "Raquel: Beyond the Cleavage" hits the shelves.
