Vanessa Kirby Reveals Interesting Details About Filming the Labor Scene in 'Pieces of a Woman'

Vanessa Kirby is opening up about what is was like to film that intense labor scene in her new movie Pieces of a Woman, which is streaming now on Netflix.

One of the first scenes of the film is a 24-minute one-shot take of Vanessa‘s character giving birth, from the contractions through a heartbreaking conclusion.

In a new interview with The New York Times, Vanessa revealed that the scene was shot six times over a span of two days and each take was different.

The article notes that the differences included how “Martha and Sean’s conversations shifted, the way Martha’s body reacted to the contractions was distinctive each time.”

“It was, I think, probably the best career experience I’ve ever had,” Vanessa said about shooting that scene.

While preparing for the scene, Vanessa observed a woman’s six-hour labor and she says the experience “changed me so profoundly. Every second of what was happening to her, I just absorbed.” She added that the woman’s “body was taking over and doing it, so that helped me so much for the scene.”

When it was time for Vanessa to shoot the scene, she “tried to think as little as possible, she said, and not judge what her body was doing in the scene.”

Vanessa recently made a statement in response to the abuse allegations against her co-star Shia LaBeouf.

Vanessa Kirby Makes Statement About 'Pieces of a Woman' Co-star Shia LaBeouf's Abuse Allegations

Vanessa Kirby has commented on Shia LaBeouf‘s ongoing sexual assault lawsuit.

The 32-year-old actress, who stars with Shia in Pieces of a Woman, has opened up in a short statement via The Independent.

“I stand with all survivors of abuse and respect the courage of anyone who speaks their truth. Regarding the recent news, I can’t comment on an ongoing legal case,” Vanessa‘s statement reads.

If you’re unfamiliar, Shia was sued by ex-girlfriend, FKA twigs for sexual battery and abuse, citing that he was violent with her and knowingly gave her a sexually transmitted disease, among other things.

Shia has admitted his faults after the lawsuit was made public, and is now in search of “intensive, long-term” treatment.

The movie that Vanessa and Shia star in together is about a couple on the verge of parenthood whose lives change irrevocably during a home birth at the hands of a flustered midwife, who faces charges of criminal negligence.

Netflix has decided to do this for their FYC campaign of the movie in light of the allegations against Shia.

Vanessa Kirby Talks About Filming a 30-Minute Labor Scene for 'Pieces of a Woman'

Vanessa Kirby is getting a lot of Oscar buzz for her work in the Netflix movie Pieces of a Woman and she’s opening up about one of the pivotal scenes in the film.

The movie opens with a 30-minute labor scene and she discussed how she prepared for it during a new interview with Harper’s Bazaar.

“I started watching everything I could find. Endless documentaries, home birth videos, but everything was so sanitized; everything was so edited,” Vanessa said.

Vanessa ended up shadowing an obste­trician and witnessing a live birth.

“I watched her for six hours go through a really difficult labor, no painkillers, forceps. It got really, really difficult…I watched her go on a completely lone journey, like an odyssey, through the most primal, almost divine…And I saw the power and the fear in all of it. I came away far more of a woman in appreciating the sacredness of the feminine in a way that I don’t think I had fully realized. I feel like I had lived something in human experience I hadn’t lived before,” Vanessa said. “It brought everything that I sort of had known intellectually into being, which is, this is like the magnificence of being a woman, and its creation essentially…It almost gave birth to the film inside my heart.”

The trailer for the movie, which also stars Shia LaBeouf, was released this week.
