Well, apparently that “pretty people get turned away” comment was taken out of context!
When asked about the controversy on The Huntsman: Winter’s War red carpet, the 40-year-old told Access Hollywood:
“It was such an incredible misquote. I’m somewhat shocked by how I got so misquoted. What I was really trying to say was people always ask me why I play so many characters that are so deconstructed, and my point with that was that how many characters really are there out there for a woman wearing a gown? You have to kind of play real people.”
Still not really sure if this clears everything up, but at least it makes sense to her! Sounds like she’s still saying there are less roles for typically pretty people… but we digress.
The former model continued:
“Context is everything. And if somebody doesn’t really get that or it doesn’t translate, people can really kind of read stuff so wrongly.”
She later told ExtraTV:
“I have always been honest that when I was a model 20 years ago it was hard to walk into a [casting] room, and I had to prove myself. Today I’m so lucky that I’m in a place that I don’t have to. But I’m grateful for that, too, because it gives you character and it makes you who you are, and you don’t want everything to kind of come easy.”
At least she’s grateful for those incredible good looks, right?!
