Emma Stone Reveals Why She Decided to Show Her Breasts for the First Time On Screen

The Favourite stars Emma Stone, Olivia Colman, and Rachel Weisz are on the cover of THR‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the stars had to share with the mag…

Emma, on her decision to show her breasts in the movie (her first time doing so on screen): “I had the sheet up around me, and as we were shooting it and we did a few takes, I said, ‘Can I please just be [naked]?’ I think it’s going to give Sarah [Rachel's character] something to look at when she sees that I’m not just under the sheet covered up. Olivia was like, ‘No, don’t do it!’ [director] Yorgos [Lanthimos] was like, ‘Are you sure that’s what you want to do?’ And I was like, ‘Absolutely.’ I chose to do it. I was like, this makes sense to me. It’s an absolute [Stone flips the bird] to Sarah.”

Rachel, on the use of the “c” word (which is used in the film): “In England, we say it all the time. If I’m with another Brit, we’ll say, ‘So and so is being such a c —t,’ and laugh. It’s an old English word. Shakespeare used it. Or maybe Chaucer.”

Olivia, on whether a film about women hating women is a setback for women: “A setback for women? How can it set women back to prove that women fart and vomit and hate and love and do all the things men do? All human beings are the same. We’re all multifaceted, many-layered, disgusting and gorgeous and powerful and weak and filthy and brilliant. That’s what’s nice [about The Favourite]. It doesn’t make women an old-fashioned thing of delicacy.”

    Alright, although as far as mimicking men goes, we don’t need any men being fascist etc. women with the chance should show men how to aptly handle the problem.
