Although the actor looks incredible as fashionista Baroness von Hellman in the film, she said that wearing underwear with her costumes was “torture” during a recent appearance on Lorraine.
“I don’t like wearing underwear full stop,” Thompson explained. “I stopped wearing underwear a long time ago. It’s not my scene.”
“I don’t like comfortable underwear,” she continued. “I find comfortable underwear uncomfortable.”
Thompson jokingly compared the feeling of wearing underwear to squeezing a tub of toothpaste.
“If you squeeze it hard enough, things will come up and go down and make the shapes,” she said. “But it’s like you’re dealing with a Plasticine person.”
“If you put Mr. Blobby into that corset, he would look good.”
