When I received the character of a pregnant woman, I was surprised. I felt burdened by it, too. But once I read the script, I had to say yes right away.

It was hard to keep my legs together, so I ended up sitting like a real pregnant woman. I thought that was fascinating.

I was dieting when I first met the director, but the director told me to stop.
But as someone who is naturally thin, she had to take extra measures in order to gain weight.
So I went to eat out a lot with the director. I ate the main course, had dessert, had more food, had more dessert. I purposely gained weight. I ate 3 to 4 meals a day.
