Actress Jaime Presley has welcomed twins Lenon and Leo back in October of last year and, now, she opened up about how her Mom role helped her hide her pregnancy. Apparently, in order to cover up the fact that she was expecting, the writers decided to have her character gain a lot of weight.
Not only that but when it was the time for Jaime’s maternity leave, they shipped her character Jill to a wellness retreat where she could work on her eating disorder.
Wearing a fat suit definitely helped conceal her growing baby bump even though it was not at all comfortable.
But even so, Jaime explained that she was ‘all in!’
During an interview, she stated that ‘We have the best group of writers. I mean, it was such a brilliant way to cover the pregnancy. I had no idea they were going to come up with that. I was flabbergasted when they told me the idea.’
Apparently, she thought that they might integrate her pregnancy into the storyline after Jill’s miscarriage one season before ‘But when they told me about the prosthetic fat face and neck, and the fat suit and the whole eating disorder, I was all in. I thought it was brilliant.’
Earlier this month, Jill came back home looking all thin again after her wellness center experience, but as fans of the show know, the character is now struggling with drinking problems.
‘Jill is going to have a really hard time staying sober. Jill has had a hard time being able to do anything in moderation… but I think Christy (Anna Faris) was the one who said, ‘We are not a moderation group of women,’ so she had to learn that the hard way,’ the actress said about where Jill’s storyline is going.
