The actress looks like an entirely different person! 30-year-old Blake Lively was spotted filming out in Dublin, Ireland for new movie The Rhythm Section.
The star wore a short shaggy wig, some ratty purple sweats, and a puffer coat.
Of course, the not so glamorous look was all for the film, in which she plays a character set on self-destructing who then finds out a shocking secret about her family’s passing and so stumbles into an even bigger conspiracy.
The actress has opened up before about the generally accepted notion in the film industry that the women have to be likable no matter what.
‘I play a heroin-addicted prostitute. Going back to the likable thing … you always see that thing in movies where if a woman’s a sex worker, you always think, ‘I do not want the guys to be grossed out by her,’ We have to still make her kind of sexy … tragically sexy, but you know, music video,’ Lively said.
But obviously, that is not the reality so, in this movie, it’s essential for her and the production that the character is ‘a woman who society has written off, and society has forgotten about.’
What do you think about Blake Lively’s new ‘look’ for her role? Do you agree that Hollywood should reflect the reality a lot more often even when it’s an ‘ugly’ one?
