Another movie, another horror story of a corset.
Just like Dakota Fanning is in front of her, Emma Stone admits that her new movie “The Favorite” is wearing a corset that has caused serious damage to her body.
The 29-year-old actress discussed the dangers of transforming into an 18th-century character in an interview with the forthcoming episode of Graham Norton Show.
“In such a long time, women exist like that, which gives you a lot of sympathy for that time and what they have experienced,” Stone said, according to the Daily Mail. “In the first month, I can’t breathe, I will smell mint, which will make me feel that I can breathe for a while in a vast space.”
Stone then added a particularly creepy detail: “A month later, all my organs have moved – this is serious, don’t do it if you don’t need it!”
In July, Fanning described a very similar experience when filming the TV show “The Alienist”, telling W magazine that her corset not only fainted her, but also changed her shape.
“Seven months; your body has changed completely,” Fan Ning explained. “You can put on a [corset] without tying or relaxing. In the end I just pulled it down and pulled it down. It was like a second nature.”
Perhaps a sign that a corset may be best left in the past.
