“While filming, someone brought her a poster that would promote the film,” makeup artist Kate Biscoe said. Vulture to mark the comedy’s 20th anniversary. “He showed it to her, like, ‘Do you like her?’ And she was kind of like, ‘Yeah.’ He said, ‘What is it?'”

Kate continued, “She said, ‘You’ve made me too skinny. That’s not me.’ Then she made this hourglass shape. And he said, ‘Okay, we’ll fix that’ .”

Referencing the heavy airbrushing and editing of women’s bodies that was often seen in the 2000s, the makeup artist continued, “She left to go do the scene, and I looked at her and I I smiled, like, ‘Is this the first time you ‘has any actress ever asked to enlarge her body?’ He was like, ‘Yes. It’s going to cost me thousands of dollars, but I’m going to do it’.”
