“In the world, there is an industry — a billion-dollar, trillion-dollar industry — about hiding things. Concealers. Body-shapers. Fillers. Procedures. Clothing. Hair accessories. Hair products. Everything to conceal the reality of who we are.” she wrote in a lengthy Instagram post.

"Immediately after signing up, she would text us photos of weird outfits and weird hairdos,” said Scheinert. "There was one photo of an IRS auditor that Dan Kwan had found online — I mean, maybe she worked in a DMV, I don't know — but this one photo, Jamie was like, 'That's incredible, please let me be her — please, please, please, please.' And that photo became the reference for the hairdo and the outfit."

"Everyone assumes that her belly in the movie is a prosthetic, but it's actually her real belly. She was grateful that she was allowed to just let it out."

"I wanted to just be truthful to this woman," Curtis told EW.

"My instruction to everybody was: I want there to be no concealing of anything. I've been sucking my stomach in since I was 11, when you start being conscious of boys and bodies, and the jeans are super tight. I very specifically decided to relinquish and release every muscle I had that I used to clench to hide the reality. That was my goal."
