Curtis shared a post on her social media as Deirdre Beaubeirdra and captioned it expressing the look. “Two years ago we made this movie right up until the day the world shut down. We just finished in time. It’s a Magical Mystery Tour of a movie and I’m so excited to see it tomorrow at its premiere opening the @sxsw festival,” she wrote commencing the caption.
“I wanted to just be truthful to this woman,” Curtis told Entertainment Weekly when talking about her character. “In the world, there is an industry — a billion-dollar, trillion-dollar industry — about hiding things. Concealers. Body-shapers. Fillers. Procedures. Clothing. Hair accessories. Hair products. Everything to conceal the reality of who we are. And my instruction to everybody was: I want there to be no concealing of anything.”

She continued, “I’ve been sucking my stomach in since I was 11 when you start being conscious of boys and bodies, and the jeans are super tight. I very specifically decided to relinquish and release every muscle I had that I used to clench to hide the reality. That was my goal.”
