I had pictures of the Kardashians also
00:02
all over my trailer when I was playing the part.
00:04
Not in a negative way at all.
00:05
So much about Molly Bloom and the physicality
00:08
and you see this twice in the film
00:09
were people telling her that she's not presenting herself
00:12
in the way she should
00:13
and so in her work, her boss says, ugly shoes, ugly dress
00:18
and she goes and buys something
00:19
that she says makes her look completely like someone else
00:22
and she becomes more sexually desirable
00:25
and then later on, the lawyer tells her
00:27
she's too sexually desirable
00:29
and she needs to change her clothes.
00:30
So I thought in terms of well, what do women have to become
00:35
in order to find power in society
00:39
when men are making all the rules
00:42
and it was pretty clear to me.
00:44
I was like, oh my gosh, the Kardashians
00:45
are such an incredible example of women
00:49
who really have their own sense of power,
00:53
they're entrepreneurs and also they looked a lot like Molly.
00:58
Molly looked a lot like them.
00:59
So I had those images.
01:01
I actually watched Kim's tutorial
01:03
on face shading or whatever.
01:07
Yeah, the contouring.
01:08
So as the movie goes on,
01:12
Molly really starts to transform into this idea
01:17
of what a woman has to be in order to be heard.
