Sally Field is going to be starring in Steven Spielberg’s new film, Lincoln. She will be portraying the former first lady, Mary Todd for the president of the United States Abraham Lincoln.
For the veteran actress to look authentic she was forced to gain twenty five pounds to play the part because they know how what size her dress is by reports so the director wanted her plump, while she plays the mother of four.
She stated to Cnn.com that” “I gained 25 pounds – she was much heavier, or more round, so we tried to replicate her measurements. We had her dress size, because it’s documented when they made dress(es) for her… We replicated what she was, and it wasn’t easy. It was sort of horrifying to be a woman of a certain age and to put on 25 pounds.”
The sixty five year old stated that Spielberg would have been the only director that she would alter her body for because he tries to get the actor/actress into character, so it feels as real as possible.
She then also said: She adds, “The crew, I never saw them. I never heard them. They were quiet and they dressed in period costume. (Spielberg) dressed in a suit and jacket and tie so that you never felt invaded in your psyche that you were really in a contemporary world and you had to like, focus to try and get back into this mid 1800s. It was such a gift… He’s an exquisite artist and this is his masterpiece I believe.”
