Krysten Ritter Speaks About How Jessica Jones Not Wearing High Heels Inspires Viewers

Krysten Ritter is looking stunning in this photo shoot for HarperBazaar.com.

Here’s what the Jessica Jones star had to share with the mag:

On how the Harvey Weinstein exposé led to her to reassessing her own experiences: “It does make you do an emotional inventory of your career, and your life, and all of a sudden you’re fucking enraged. You look back and kind of hate yourself for giggling through it, or for not knowing what to say–I went back and remembered things that I’d totally forgotten about, just shoved under the rug.”

On how Jessica Jones not wearing high heels inspires viewers: “There’s so much pressure on women to look beautiful, have everything put together, get your beauty sleep, it’s all about a physical appearance. And this is a character who is not about a physical appearance at all … Jessica uses sex the way she uses alcohol, to escape her mental space. It’s nothing super sexy, she’s not sentimental, it’s not emotional.”

On being more selective about roles she takes: “I remember getting a call about playing the wife of an actor that is close to my dad’s age. Maybe a little younger, but I also tend to play a little younger than I am, and I read a little younger on camera, so me opposite a 50-year-old? I was like, ‘No! What are you doing?’ I don’t know if that would happen now.”
